The current motto at Marvel Studios must be “If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it” because the company behind the biggest franchise of the past decade has once again hired screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely to pen one of their films. Actually, they’ve been technically hired to pen two films, since Avengers: Infinity War will be split into two halves and released in 2018 and 2019. Trivia: Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely do not sleep..

You see the release date in the image there: May 6, 2016. Marvel Phase Three kicks off exactly one year from yesterday with the release of Captain America: Civil War. With the clock ticking, and the Avengers: Age of Ultron publicity tour finally winding down, it’s time to get to shooting Cap 3. Marvel announced today that production has officially begun on next summer’s massive sequel, and they also revealed four more big additions to the cast.
As you may recall from Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Emily VanCamp played a small but important role as Agent 13, also known as Sharon Carter, niece of our beloved Agent Carter. The Revenge star has signed on to reprise her role in Captain America: Civil War, answering the call of duty (and presumably the call to aid Cap) once again.
The other day, we got a peek at Tony Stark’s new Iron Man armor for Captain America: Civil War, continuing his sleek, super-powered evolution in the MCU. But Stark isn’t the only one getting a sweet suit upgrade — Steve Rogers’ Cap suit has evolved a bit too over the years, and he’ll also be receiving a slight change in apparel come Civil War. New concept art gives us a preview of this new suit, and while it’s not too different, there are some cool changes.
Despite a cast that is pretty well jam-packed, Captain America: Civil War is not quite done. The upcoming Marvel sequel — jokingly codenamed Avengers 2.5 — has now added Emmy-winning actor and The Hobbit star Martin Freeman to the cast in an unspecified and secret role.
It’s not too early to start looking ahead to Captain America: Civil War, right? I mean Avengers: Age of Ultron has already been out for five days; that’s soooooo last week. With Marvel it’s always about what comes next. And what comes next (okay after Ant-Man, which is a little disconnected from the main Marvel Cinematic Universe storyline) is Captain America: Civil War, where Chris Evans’ Captain America and Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man will apparently get into a tussle over ... something. Maybe they argue over whether the Hulk and Black Widow should have hooked up in Avengers 2. I don’t know.

Chris Evans is preparing to head into production Captain America: Civil War this year, but since Marvel has all their films mapped out through Phase 3, he’s also got to start thinking ahead to what’s next — namely, Avengers: Infinity War. That film is going to tie the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe together in truly epic fashion, so epic that they needed to divide the film into two parts, which will apparently shoot back to back.
When his casting was first announced, Marvel tried keeping the identity of Daniel Bruhl's character in Captain America: Civil War secret. But in an interview this weekend, Bruhl casually confirmed that he’s playing the villainous Baron Zemo in the upcoming superhero sequel.
