Captain America: Civil War is currently in production, and fans who’ve wanted to see the superheroic Avengers fight each other are waiting impatiently for news. But it seems that Jeremy Renner, who plays Hawkeye, has our backs. He recently released this image to his Twitter account.
In one glance, this piece of art shows us the heroes that we know and love facing off. And from which side they’re standing on, we can see who’s on which side of the fight.
This particular fight is the struggle over the Superhero Registration Act, as seen in Mark Millar’s 2006 Civil War series. While Tony Stark and his allies favor registration of anyone who straps on a supersuit, Captain America feels that registration is un-American (you can spoil yourself by reading the seven-issue series, although I have no doubt that directors Anthony and Joe Russo will tweak the plot).
Note that this poster is actually concept art, and not intended to hang in theater lobbies. A good thing, too, because it’s rather muddied and difficult to determine the characters in the background. But from what we can tell, it seems that Black Widow, Black Panther, War Machine and Vision share the same ideals as Iron Man. On the Captain America side, there’s Hawkeye, Ant-Man, Winter Soldier and Falcon.
Is that Scarlet Witch standing with him? It’s hard to tell, although that would jibe with previous rumors about Wanda's role in the proceedings. Let us know what you think of the poster, and the buildup to what should be a really wonderful film, in the comments.
Captain America: Civil War will kick off the summer season with a May 6, 2016, release date.
Also, here are some other images that Renner tweeted:
