With this morning bringing confirmation that Emily VanCamp’s Agent 13 will be back for Captain America: Civil War, now comes the reveal of the film’s official synopsis and also a confirmed cast list.

The official synopsis reads:

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.

As for the cast, the film will feature Chris Evans as Captain America, Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Anthony Mackie as The Falcon, Paul Bettany as The Vision, Don Cheadle as War Machine, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Sebastian Stan as Winter Soldier, Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, Emily VanCamp as Agent 13, Daniel Brühl as Baron Helmut Zemo, Frank Grillo as Crossbones, William Hurt as General Thunderbolt Ross, and an unknown role for Martin Freeman. On top of that, Civil War will also give Spider-Man his MCU debut.

What’s most interesting about this cast list is that this is the first we’ve heard of Ant-Man and General Ross being involved. Rudd’s Scott Lang will make his MCU debut in July’s Ant-Man first, of course, while General Ross was last seen in The Incredible Hulk.

To be directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Captain America: Civil War is currently set for a May 6th, 2016 release.
