Potential CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR Spoiler Rumors About Plot, Costumes, Villains and More

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR is set to begin filming in Atlanta in a few weeks, at the start of May. So it was only a matter of time until some juicy rumors hit the web about it.

Today is that day as the website JoBlo has posted a collection of possible rumors about Civil War. Again, these are just rumors but here's a SPOILER ALERT out of principle. Let's dive right into these...

On the heroes and villains who might be in Civil War and whose side they are on:

"Pretty much every Avengers character that DOESN'T have their own franchise is going to appear in CIVIL WAR. Some we already know about, including Cap (obviously), Winter Soldier, Falcon, Black Panther, Black Widow, Iron Man, and Hawkeye. We can also confirm the recently rumored Scarlet Witch, as well as The Vision, War Machine, and even Ant-Man. The non-hero villains are, as already confirmed, Baron Zemo and Crossbones. Now, our source also indicated that this roster has some wiggle room, so there's always the chance that a few may be shuffled out at some point, but right now this IS the plan."

On if there's any surprise appearances like Spider-Man or something someone 'much bigger:'

"As for Spider-Man; Marvel is playing it close to the chest, so there's no info on how he's involved...yet. In terms of who's facing off with who: So far it looks like Cap, Black Widow, Hawkeye, and Falcon vs. Iron Man, War Machine, The Vision, and Ant-Man, with the Scarlet Witch and Black Panther somewhere in the mix. Oh, and expect to see Ant-Man take on the Giant-Man form in battle. How cool will that be, eh?"

On Black Panther:

"We all know that Chadwick Boseman will appear in CIVIL WAR, but his role in the war isn't one-sided as he'll have his own agenda in the film."

On the involvement of the Winter Soldier:

"The other element that will be a key focus is The Winter Soldier, whose existence is the big question as he has the ability to be a hero, but has also been a villain. This causes the main rift between Tony Stark and Steve Rogers, as the disagreement leads them to opposing sides."

On costume changes/updates:

"The Falcon will, in fact, be getting a costume upgrade for CIVIL WAR, which will be a modified version of his WINTER SOLDIER suit, but with grey and red colors, as per his comic origins. Captain America will be carrying over a slightly modified version of his AGE OF ULTRON suit, and so far The Winter Soldier will look very much as he did before, long hair and all."

On Crossbones and his involvement in the main plot:

"The coolest costume news is for Crossbones. Many of us are dying to see ol' Brock Rumlow in his trademark get-up and that will indeed happen. He's described as "messier" and the skull imagery on the suit is described as "graffiti-esque." And yes, he does indeed wear the skull mask that covers his entire face, which is said to be a hybrid mask/helmet. 
"Instead of the New Warriors being the catalyst for the Superhero Registration Act [like in the comic books], it will be Crossbones (in costume) who will be the catalyst that kicks off the film, instigating an attack that causes much death and destruction, causing the government to step in and put out the Superhero Registration Act."

Do not forget that while a Marvel movie is in production and filming it can and will change on the fly. Marvel Studios is very fluid with their creative process up until the last day before the film needs to be set out to theaters for its release.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR is in theaters on May 6, 2016.
