Captain America: Civil War Concept Art Reveals Warring Factions

The new Captain America film is almost like an Avengers film in disguise. We know that it’ll be based on the Civil War storyline from the comics, in which Stark and Rogers adopt opposing ideologies in regard to a superhero registration act. New concept art suggests that War Machine and Black Widow will ally with Iron Man, while Captain America will have Falcon and Hawkeye on his side. Am I the only one who thinks there is a serious power imbalance? I mean, Iron Man also has the Vision on his team, who was super powerful in Age of Ultron.

The moral complexity of this conflict looks to produce some strange bedfellows. It’s odd to see Black Widow ally herself with Tony against her closest friend, Clint. It’s possible that Hulk’s absence here is the key to all that. With Hulk in self-imposed exile over the destruction he’s caused, his dearest friend (Tony) and best girl (Natasha) may be particularly invested in making sure no super-powered individual is ever able to cause that kind of damage again.
