Concept art has appeared online that seems to reveal the different teams of Avengers that will be going at it in Captain America: Civil War.
With one side led by Captain America and the other led by Iron Man, fans immediately set to imagining which character face-offs they’d most like to see in the film (or, if you’re anything like me, how to recreate these teams in HeroClix for a tabletop throw down).
Here are our picks for most wanted battles. Think of it like booking a fantasy wrestling card.
Check out when Captain America: Civil War and other movies are coming out in ComicBook.com's Movie Release Schedule.
Black Panther v. The Winter Soldier
Let’s kick things off with two new Avengers recruits. Representing team Iron Man, we have Black Panther, king of Wakanda. Representing team Captain America, The Winter Soldier, Cap’s former sidekick who was brainwashed into becoming an assassin.
If the rumors are to be believed, this is a bit of a grudge match. Bucky is said to have been the one who killed T’Challa’s father, T’Chaka. If so, this would be an emotionally charged battle.prevnext
Vision v. Hawkeye & Ant-Man
Considering the ridiculous amount of power shown by the Vision (Team Iron Man) in Avengers: Age of Ultron, it only makes sense to put him in a handicap match.
For Team Captain America, we have Hawkeye and Ant-Man. Even two against one, a lot is riding on Scott and Clint’s resourcefulness, and Hawkeye’s quiver of trick arrows, to figure out a way to shut the Vision down.
And if this…
…doesn’t happen, we will be sorely disappointed.prevnext
Black Widow v. Agent 13
The males of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have had plenty of time to shine so far, so let’s sees what the universe’s leading ladies have to offer.
That’s not really why we paired these two off though. Yes, they’re the only women on their respective teams, but more important than that is their similar background. Black Widow (Team Iron Man) and Agent 13 (Team Captain America) are both spies by trade, and well trained to do their jobs. Let the best woman win.
This could be best Cold War battle since Rocky IV.prevnext
War Machine v. Falcon
If Iron Man and Captain America were tag team wrestlers, War Machine and Falcon would be their respective partners.
These guys are easily each leaders’ most loyal soldiers, showing nothing but love, respect, and faith for them. It only makes sense that these two should be pitted against each other.
Honestly, Falon might have his work cut out for him against the arsenal in War Machine’s armor. Let’s hope that Redwing drone can pull its weight.prevnext
Iron Man v. Captain America
And here’s the main event. Iron Man vs. Captain America, what the entire Civil War boils down to.0comments
We expect this fight to play out similarly to how it did in the comics. Obviously, it’s tough for Captain America to contend with Iron Man’s armor, despite his super soldier enhancement. Take away that armor, however, and what does Tony Stark have left?
This battle was the moment of clarity for Cap in the comics. We can’t wait to see how it plays out on screen.prev
