Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo ("Captain America: The Winter Soldier"), "Captain America: Civil War" picks up where "Avengers: Age of Ultron" left off, with Evans' Steve Rogers leading a new team of heroes. But after another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to institute a system of accountability and government oversight, creating a fracture within Earth's Mightiest Heroes as they try to protect the world from a new threat.
