Ant-Man, The Vision and Hawkeye are among the Avengers also taking sides in the battle between Captain America and Iron Man in “Captain America: Civil War,” with Paul Rudd, Paul Bettany and Jeremy Renner confirmed as cast members by Marvel Studios Thursday.
The threequel to “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” has begun filming in Atlanta, and the studio announced the full cast, which reads more like another “Avengers” film than a solo outing for Chris Evans‘ Steve Rogers.
Also joining Evans and Robert Downey, Jr. are Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson/Falcon, Don Cheadle as Jim Rhodes/War Machine and Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch.
Additional actors appearing in the film include Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther, Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter/Agent 13, Daniel Brühl as the villainous Baron Zemo, Frank Grillo as Brock Rumlow/Crossbones, William Hurt as General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross and Martin Freeman in an unspecified role.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, “Captain America: Civil War” will be released on May 6, 2016.
