About the Film
The all new Captain America Civil War picks up where “Avengers: Age of Ultron” left off making the epic journey with heroes and villains that much more exciting. Of course Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers on their perpetual mission to save the world. From Marvel Studios:
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.”
Captain America is based on the Marvel comic character first published in 1941. The lineage is continued in Captain America Civil War as it is chronicled in “Iron Man,” “The Incredible Hulk,” “Iron Man 2,” “Thor,” “Captain America: The First Avenger,” “The Avengers,” “Iron Man 3,” “Thor: The Dark World,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and the upcoming release schedule, which includes Marvel’s “Ant-Man” on July 17, 2015, Marvel’s “Doctor Strange,” on November 4, 2016, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy 2,” on May 5, 2017, and Marvel’s “Thor: Ragnarok,” on November 3, 2017.
Avengers Age of Ultron
Avengers Age of Ultron has been the #1 release in every country which it was released in. It recorded the second biggest opening week of all time at $191.3 million in the box office. Looking at the lineup for 2015, 2016 and 2017, I’d say Marvel Studios will pretty much just be competing with itself.
