Marvel Reveals Title of ‘Captain America 3’

Marvel has announced the official title of the third film in Marvel Studios’ Captain America franchise: “Captain America: Civil War.”

The film, that will co-star Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr., and feature a significant appearance by Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, is set for release May 6, 2016, and will launch the Civil War storyline from the Marvel comicbooks as Variety first reported.

Boseman will play T’Challa and appear in costume as Black Panther for the first time in “Civil War,” Marvel said.

“He will have a big role,” said Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige on Tuesday at a Marvel fan event at Disney’s El Capitan Theater.

The Civil War plot is a key one for Marvel’s cinematic universe, considering the bigscreen moral and physical battle will play out in multiple movies. In the comicbooks, Spider-Man is at the center of the storyline, which involves the world’s superheroes having to register with a government organization backed by billionaire Tony Stark.

But since its currently unable to integrate Spider-Man in its films — Sony has the sole rights — Black Panther appears to be taking the web slinger’s role.

“It’s a big storyline,” Feige said, adding that “this is the Civil War of the cinematic universe, inspired by comicbook universe, but the Civil War that’s based on all of the other films, particularly (‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’) and (‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’).”
