Just as its hype machine is working it’s way to it’s peak for the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, Marvel are moving on to the next stage of phase three of it’s Cinematic Universe with the news that Captain America: Civil War will begin filming soon.
Collider are reporting that casting notices have been put out in Atlanta quoting a shooting date of 1 April, though the site admits that filming could commence earlier, as this casting notice does not confirm if it is for a first or second unit.
In addition to the shooting news, the website also relays the movie synopsis that went out with the casting call;
Following the events of Age of Ultron, the collective governments of the world pass an act designed to regulate all superhuman activity. This polarizes opinion amongst the Avengers, causing two factions to side with Iron Man or Captain America, which causes an epic battle between former allies.
Anthony and Joe Russo return to direct the sequel, which stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Anthony Mackie and Chadwick Boseman making his first appearance as Black Panther. It is also expected that Spider-Man will make his MCU debut.
Captain America: Civil War is scheduled for release on 6 May 2016.
