The next chapter in the saga of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is on its way with Captain America: Civil War and while we’ve known who was on which side for some time now, the majority of the focus has been on Cap and Stark, the guys who are in charge. Now, the rest of the crew is finally getting their due attention. Each member who will be backing up Captain America now has his or her own poster. Take a look at each member of Team Cap, who will be fighting against government interference with the Avengers.
Obviously, we’re going to start at the top with the guy whose name is in the title of the movie, Captain America: Civil War. While Steve Rogers is the one that wears red, white, and blue, and you might think would be comfortable working alongside the government, he’s also had experience with large organizations not being everything that they claimed to be. With the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier likely fresh in his mind, he’s unwilling to accept government oversight.
What’s more, Cap's best friend since he was a kid, Bucky Barnes, has been accused of a terrorist act. Bucky claims innocence, and Captain America believes him, but few others appear to. This puts the two on the run from the rest of the heroes that we know, and at least one new entry. Cap and Bucky are not entirely alone however. They will have some help.
If there’s one ally that Captain America can absolutely rely on, it’s Falcon. The two became friends during the events of Captain America: Civil War and what with Bucky spending so much time as a brainwashed assassin, Falcon is probably a bit more of Cap’s go-to guy. Falcon trusts Steve Rogers implicitly. We can only hope that this is going to work out for Falcon. As the trailer told us, people who start shooting at Cap, eventually take aim at Falcon.
We know very little about how Scarlet Witch will factor into the events of Captain America: Civil War as a whole. There have been some rumors about characters that she may be growing close to, but if true, that will only bring complications. She has powers that could be very useful for Cap, if she figures out what to do with them, but we doubt he’s going to let her control anybody’s mind.
Hawkeye being on Team Cap sets up on obvious conflict because of who won’t be on that side. We know that Hawkeye and Black Widow have been close for a long time. She was the only one who knew about his personal life prior to the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Now, they’re going to find themselves on opposite sides of this confrontation. How this ends is anybody's guess.
The closing credits of Ant-Man didn’t show us a teaser for the next Marvel movie, but rather an actual scene from Captain America: Civil War. We know that Ant-Man will be enlisted by Falcon and Captain America to help get Bucky out of a tough situation. What happens after that is unknown, but we’ve seen him line up with Team Cap, so he’ll be ready to fight as well.
