Captain America: Civil War is an action-packed epic that is pivotal to Marvel Studio’s phase 3, and by introducing new characters such as Spider-Man and Black Panther, the Russo Brothers-directed film sets up a superhero face-off comic book fans have been waiting for.

The movie starts with The Avengers accidentally exploding a building in the nation of Wakanda, killing civilians and kickstarting a global debate on how to keep Earth’s mightiest heroes in check.

Before the team is able to do damage control, however, tragedy strikes again and the Winter Soldier has apparently gone on a new killing spree.

Set one year after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, the film shows the disagreement over international oversight of the Avengers that divides the team into two factions led by Captain America and Iron Man.

Directors Anthony and Joe Russo have put together a movie that brings as much hard-hitting drama to the table as it does astounding action, and its the perfect model for what serial comic book movies can be.

New players Ant-Man/Giant Man (Paul Rudd), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman, and Spider-Man (Tom Holland) steal the show. Holland’s Spider-Man is the third incarnation of the superhero and might be Marvel’s best yet.

Sticking to the teenage years of Peter Parker, the Russo brothers brought an interesting dynamic to Team Iron Man by adding a young adult to the mix.

The film changes the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a dramatic way, and left audiences intrigued about Marvel’s plans for continuing The Avengers legacy.
