Marvel Entertainment has recently unveiled details about the upcoming release of Captain America: Civil War, bringing the latest blockbuster installment in the franchise to DVD and Blu-Ray Disc in September.
In the wake of collateral damage, government pressure to rein in the Avengers drives a deep wedge between Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), causing a catastrophic rift that escalates into an all-out feud. Against a backdrop of divided loyalties, their fellow Avengers must deal with the fallout. Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) are joined by a star-studded lineup of beloved Marvel Super Heroes, including Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Bucky Barnes aka Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Sam Wilson aka Falcon (Anthony Mackie) Colonel James “Rhodey” Rhodes aka War Machine (Don Cheadle), Clint Barton aka Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Vision (Paul Bettany) and Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), along with new recruit Scott Lang aka Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and joined by two new additions to the MCU: T’Challa aka Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and Peter Parker aka Spider-Man (Tom Holland).
On DVD, the release will be a bare-bones affair, offering not a single bonus feature. Fortunately for fans of the film, the Blu-Ray version fares a lot better, offering up over 60 minutes worth of supplements, such as United We Stand, Divided We Fall, a Making-of look at the film in two parts. As the tension mounts, sides are chosen and lines drawn. Learn more about the characters on each side—from Captain America and Iron Man to the latest recruits.
