There’s a war coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it’s not going to end up well. Through the trailers of “Avengers: Age of Ultron“, you’d know that the entire Avengers team is not pleased (no, not really) with Iron Man. What has he done? We don’t know but what we do know is that two teams of Marvel superheroes will be led by Captain America and Iron Man respectively to fight each other in the third and upcoming “Captain America” film,

So, what caused the brawl between Iron Man and Captain America?

Captain America - Iron Man

Titled “Captain America: Civil War”, the 3rd Captain America film will be based on the Civil War storyline in the Marvel Universe, where the mayhem begins with the Superhero Registration Act, a proposition that will force those with superhuman abilities to reveal themselves to the world and register their identities. Marvel superheroes are forced to pick a side: Join Iron Man’s side if you want to support the programme or join Captain America’s side if you oppose the programme.


Thus, they end up going head-to-head.

With the absence of Spider-Man, the Tumblr community has come up with their own explanations of the cause of the civil war.

In 2012’s “The Avengers”, Captain America and Iron Man were already seen having an argument over the smallest things and we are expected to see more of that in the upcoming “Avengers” film. For this Civil War meme, Tumblr users came up with the smallest, most ridiculous arguments the two could have, based on the current pop culture. All these arguments eventually “led” to the beginning of the superhero civil war.

Gif vs Jif:

Sorry Iron Man, but we believe “gif” is actually pronounced as “jif”, as confirmed by the creator of the gif.

“Captain America” is slated for release on 6th May 2016 and the film marks Daniel Bruhl’s debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Chadwick Boseman will also make his debut as Black Panther through this film.
