Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.

Captain America: Civil War arrives in cinemas May 2016 from Walt Disney Studios distributed through Columbia Pictures.

According to director Bryan Singer first unit filming of X-Men: Apocalypse, which began shooting in April (Montreal, Canada), has been completed. “That’s a wrap on main unit,” Singer wrote on his official Instagram account. “But still more to shoot over the next few weeks with second unit. But now…the wrap party!”
