Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. 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.

Former Captain America: Civil War directors Anthony & Joe Russo were announced as taking the reigns of the Avengers series, directing Avengers Infinity War Pt. 1 & Pt. 2
