Captain America Civil War
Captain America: Civil War will find Tony Stark and Steve Rogers in opposition to each otherMarvel

Marvel Studios has released a new synopsis for its upcoming movie Captain America: Civil War. The movie will pit Iron Man and Steve Rogers against each other after the government plans to enforce a superhero registration act.

The act will divide the Avengers team into two groups: One that advocates the registration led by Tony Stark and another that will stand against it, aka team Steve Rogers.

Here is the full updated synopsis released by Marvel:

Marvel's Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark's surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
