Basically, this seems to be a movie about bureaucracy, but probably the most explosion-y movie about bureaucracy you’re ever likely to see. Tony Stark thinks that the Avengers team needs to have government oversight, and Steve Rogers, well, doesn’t. Feelings are felt, and punches are punched. Here’s the synopsis:

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

“Captain America: Civil War” opens on May 6th.
