It is a year after the destruction that ravaged Sokovia in Avengers: Age of Ultron and an international incident involving Captain America and the Avengers results in more collateral damage. This prompts politicians to establish a system of accountability and a governing body to regulate the superhero activities of the Avengers. This results in the fracturing of the team into two opposing factions – one led by Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans) who wishes to operate without regulation, and one led by Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) who supports government oversight – while they attempt to protect the world from Hydra operatives Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl) and Crossbones (Frank Grillo). In the meantime, Rogers’ best friend-turned foe Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) is coming to terms with the regaining of his memories, now fighting alongside Captain America instead of against him.
Captain America: Civil War is loosely adapted from the 2006-2007 Marvel Comics crossover event Civil War, written by Mark Millar. However, since the film takes place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it will be building off of the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Avengers: Age of Ultron instead of adhering to the storyline in the comics. The film’s cast includes most of the Avengers and introduces T’challa/Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland) into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In this explosive duo-cover issue of F*** Magazine, Civil War directors Anthony & Joe Russo share their thoughts on being at the helm, adding a humanity to the characters and working with a bunch of superheroes. And more!
And yes, another superhero entourage is coming to our shores!

And one thing is for sure: we’ll be bringing you the coolest scoop again (and we don’t mean ice cream!)… in the next issue, and here at fmoviemag.com.
Oh, and here’s another thing you may like to know – like most of Marvel’s movies, Singapore will screen Civil War a full week ahead of the U.S. Another thing to be proud of when it comes to being number one at everything… including being the most expensive city in the world!
See you at the movies!
