CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR
Following the events of The Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Avengers have been busy battling evil, both in America and abroad. However, when their latest battle results in collateral damage and civilian casualties, the team comes under much stricter government scrutiny. U.S. Secretary of State Thaddeus Ross (William Hurt) informs the team that the U.N. is about to pass the Sokovia Accords, which will create a governing body to determine when the Avengers can and can't act in the signing countries.
The team is divided about signing on with these accords. Captain America/Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is against them, believing that such regulation could prevent the team from acting when it should. On the other side, Iron Man /Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is in favor of signing, thinking that the team can guide the process from there -- and if they're not accountable, the heroes are no better than the bad guys.
