Captain America: Civil War’s massive cast rivals Age of Ultron | Ars Technica

Captain America: Civil War’s massive cast rivals Age of Ultron | Ars Technica: "Marvel has revealed the cast list for the third Captain America movie, and it's shaping up to be more of an Avengers 2.5 than a straight follow-up for the (surprisingly likeable) super soldier.

The film loosely adapts the comics event of the same name. The official synopsis given by the studio reads "Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. 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." And yes, that is the new Avengers team established at the end of Age of Ultron, meaning the cast immediately balloons to include Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow), Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson/Falcon), Paul Bettany (The Vision, arguably Age of Ultron's breakout character), Don Cheadle (Jim Rhodes/War Machine) and Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch).
