A new casting call sent out by Marvel Studios has confirmed the date that Captain America: Civil War will begin shooting, and a revealed a synopsis of the film’s plot.

According to Collider, the casting call says the film will begin shooting on April 1 in Atlanta.  An earlier casting call noted a shooting date of April 27. It’s likely this was a casting call for a particular scene, one involving a lot of extras rather than the start date for the film as a whole.

Here’s the synopsis that was attached:

Following the events of Age of Ultron, the collective governments of the world pass an act designed to regulate all superhuman activity. This polarizes opinion amongst the Avengers, causing two factions to side with Iron Man or Captain America, which causes an epic battle between former allies.

That’s basically the plot of the Civil War comic book that the film is based, only with an emphasis placed on regulation rather than secret identities.

Captain America: Civil War opens May 6, 2016.
