With Marvel announcing that Captain America 3 will adapt the 2006 Civil War storyline and that Iron Man will feature in the film, rumours have surfaced that Thor and Spider-Man will also feature in the sequel.

According to reports, Thor will join sides with Iron Man and go up against Steve Rogers.

In the Civil War storyline, superheroes began fighting each other after the US government passed the 'Superhero Registration Act', which made anyone with superpowers who did not surrender to the US government a criminal. Stark supported the bill and its enforcement, while Rogers led a rebellion against it.

In Marvel Comic's Civil War series, Tony Stark cloned Thor, to ensure he would have the God of Thunder fighting on his side, as he battled Captain America and other superheroes.

Enstarz reports, "This is a shocking revelation in the comics and could allow the actual Thor character to be at home in Asgard watching the throne after the events of Thor 3, while the Civil War rages on Earth."

Other reports suggest that Spider-man will play an important part in Captain America 3, as the original Civil War storyline focused on Captain America, Iron Man and Spider-Man.

According to bustle.com, "While Captain America was the face of the opposition to the Superhero Registration Act, Iron Man convinced Spider-Man to reveal his secret identity as Peter Parker in support of the Act.

"However, Peter's support, and his relationship with Tony, soured and he ended up leaving to join Captain America's anti-registration movement"

According to Rumour Patrol, Sony are discussing a crossover possibility between its Spider-Man franchise and the universe of Marvel Studio's movie and TV series.

HitFix reports, "While I can't get the confirmations I need to verify the story, I'm hearing that there are some very cool 'Spider-Man' plans being discussed that would help Sony refocus their enormously important franchise while also opening up some connections in the on screen Marvel movie universe that would blow fandom's minds."
