Five years ago today, Marvel Studios’ Captain America: Civil War debuted in theaters, pitting two of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Disney Legend Robert Downey Jr.), against each other. The reason? Following a series of global disasters—all while trying to keep the peace—they disagreed over the Sokovia Accords, which established a United Nations panel to oversee and control the Avengers.
Steve Rogers aka Captain America opposes the Sokovia Accords, as do Sam Wilson aka The Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlett Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Clint Barton aka Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Scott Lang aka Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), and Bucky Barnes aka The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). Tony Stark aka Iron Man is in favor of them, as are Vision (Paul Bettany), T’Challa aka Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), James “Rhodey” Rhodes aka War Machine (Don Cheadle), Peter Parker aka Spider-Man (Tom Holland), and, for a little while, Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson).
Even before the events of Captain America: Civil War, Captain America and Iron Man had fundamentally different leadership styles. But after Helmut Zemo (Daniel Brühl) revealed a dark secret surrounding the assassinations of Howard (John Slattery) and Maria Stark (Hope Davis), the relationship between the two Avengers was fractured for several years.
