Following their massive success with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, sibling directors Joe and Anthony Russo were tapped by Marvel Studios to adapt one of Marvel Comics most iconic story arcs to the big screen: Civil War.
While many details of Captain America: Civil War have been kept quiet, the Russo Brothers were willing to spill some info when talking to ComicBook.com, for example, they revealed the film begins where Age of Ultron left off Captain America "training" Scarlet Witch while the two are "out on a mission together."
However, much of the focus has been on the characters Civil War has been allowed to introduce to the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Black Panther and Spider-Man. While Joe Russo promises "a lot of [the characters] have really interesting arcs," it's Spider-Man's that he emphasizes as being "really fascinating." They have their hands full with the wall crawler, though, having to differentiate their portrayal from two others in the last 10 years. They say their take is a "very personal approach," which will set Tom Holland's Peter Parker apart from Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire's.
As for their future with Marvel Studios, it's slowly becoming more clear. The two-part Avengers: Infinity War scheduled for 2018 and 2019 is all set to include a boat load of characters and the directors say the concept is, "the Marvel universe unites to battle the greatest threat to the world and universe that you’ve ever seen."
