Storyline

With many people fearing the actions of super heroes, the government decides to push for the Hero Registration Act, a law that limits a hero's actions. This results in a division in The Avengers. Iron Man stands with this Act, claiming that their actions must be kept in check otherwise cities will continue to be destroyed, but Captain America feels that saving the world is daring enough and that they cannot rely on the government to protect the world. This escalates into an all-out war between Team Iron Man (Iron Man, Black Panther, Vision, Black Widow, War Machine, and Spider-Man) and Team Captain America (Captain America, Bucky Barnes, Falcon, Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye, and Ant Man) while a new villain emerges.

Did You Know?

Trivia

(at around 1h 50 mins) When Robert Downey Jr. visits the imprisoned Avengers after their showdown, Jeremy Renner sarcastically introduces him as "the Futurist", which is actually the name of Downey's debut solo album, released in 2004, through Sony Classical. See more »

Goofs

(at around 30 secs) At the HYDRA base in 1991, the code to enter it is shown as '17826.' However, when Zemo enters the base towards the end of the film (at around 1h 50 mins), it appears as though the last 2 digits that he enters are '86.' However, it's a different door, as in 1991 it was a vault to store the red notebook, and in 2016 it was a door into the HYDRA facility. See more »

Crazy Credits

SPOILER: There are two scenes in the closing credits:
  • Bucky and Steve hide out in Wakanda, under the permission and assistance of King T'Challa. This leads into Black Panther (2018).
  • Peter Parker awkwardly explains his injuries to Aunt May, and later sees a gadget Tony Stark made for him. This leads into Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017).

An Amazing Movie
13 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

Russo Brothers did an amazing job with this film. I loved every scene in this film.The action is amazing,its good to see Chris Evans again as Capitan America,Robert , well he is tony stark and i actually loved him this film more than in his own movies. Black Panther, Antman y Spiderman, they are just amazing and interesting characters in the film. Visual effects are amazing and the battles are really good. I thought that marvel will never do a very good movie like it was winter soldier, but i was wrong, i was totally wrong I don't like to compare, but i enjoy this film more than batman v superman. It's obviously that it is not perfect, that's sure but for me this is the best marvel movie, and i cant wait for the infinity war, the MCU is in good hands with the Russo brothers
