The following post contains SPOILERS — both real and hilariously fake ones that got widely shared online even though they were untrue — for Captain America: Civil War.

False rumors assemble!

The months and years leading up to a major superhero franchise are marked by an endless parade of rumors, spoilers, and scoops, a few of them accurate, most of them wildly and sometimes comically false. Previously, I’ve compiled dozens of phony rumors about Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Today, it’s all about Captain America: Civil War.

Get ready for 40 different false rumors about Marvel’s latest mega-blockbuster, many of which were printed (and reprinted and reprinted) online along with some variation of the phrase “take this news with a grain of salt.” If this trend continues, the movie journalism industry will be singlehandedly responsible for a worldwide salt shortage.

Sadly, I suspect the salt shaker will be refilled for maximum grain-taking before Suicide Squad opens in August. Until then, here are 40 false rumors about Civil War — unless I fell asleep and missed the scene where Crossbones kills Hawkeye’s entire family (and then Hawkeye kills Crossbones with four arrows).
