Why exactly do the heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe go to war anyway?

Marvel Studios

Hailed as one of the all-time great comic book events, Civil War is one of those stories fans spent years hoping would one day reach the big screen. 

Well, it's finally happening, and the movie is so far shaping up to be one of Marvel's biggest releases to date (the cast at least is certainly larger than in any other of the studio's movies). However, while it may be based on a well-known comic book, there's a lot about Captain America: Civil War which remains a mystery. 

Spider-Man is going to show up and Captain America and Iron Man will indeed go to war, but beyond that, the follow-up to The Winter Soldier is a movie surrounded by speculation and rumours. How closely to the comic it will adhere isn't clear, nor is how it will fit within the wider MCU.

On paper, it seems to be another Captain America movie, with Iron Man a co-star and the rest of The Avengers just as the supporting cast, but as time's gone by it looks like a third Avengers in all but name. 

So just what is Captain America: Civil War? Here, you will find a mixture of solid rumours and recently revealed details about the movie, along with answers to what have for a long time been unanswered questions...
