Is This What Causes The Civil War?

As we draw ever closer to the release of Captain America: Civil War, the biggest question yet to be answered is what exactly causes the conflict between Earth’s Mightiest Heroes?


Thanks to Heroic Hollywood, we might now know exactly the catastrophic event that leads to Iron Man and Captain America coming to blows. According to their sources, it happens as follows:


“The international incident in the film involving the Avengers that results in collateral damage involves Captain America and Scarlet Witch who are trying to apprehend Crossbones. The only problem is that Crossbones is wearing a suicide vest full of nasty explosives. In order to protect the civilians on the ground, Captain America orders Scarlet Witch to levitate Crossbones above ground. She does and unfortunately is unable to contain the massive explosion that sets off near a populated building causing death and destruction.”

This is of course still speculation, but should it be the genuine event from the Captain America threequel it’s certainly a controversial way to do it by writing Crossbones out very early! It is however a loose adaptation of the original events of the comics where a sub-par villain Nitro went nuclear and created a blast radius that decimated several city blocks and killed over 600 civilians.


Personally, we think Sokovia was a big enough incident along with New York to be considered an international incident which results in the implementation of the rumoured “The Sokovia Accords” which is what is being considered the MCU version of the Superhero Registration Act. That’s before you even take into account the events of all the other Marvel movies. It’s fair to say, superhero sentiment within the MCU is at an all time low.

Captain America: Civil War will debut in Irish theatres on the 29th of April 2016 and the official synopsis you can read below!

“After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.”
