Rumored details concerning the infamous "international incident" referred to by Marvel in their official movie synopsis for Captain America: Civil War -  which will trigger the Sokovia Accords and lead to the major conflict between Cap (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), dividing Earth's Mighiest Heroes in two - have trickled online.

According to a report over at Heroic Hollywood, the incident will involve a certain villain we crossed paths with in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Have you guessed who it is, yet?


Open eyeClose eye Show Spoiler The rumor is, according to trusted sources, the international incident in the film involving the Avengers that results in collateral damage involves Captain America and Scarlet Witch who are trying to apprehend Crossbones. The only problem is that Crossbones is wearing a suicide vest full of nasty explosives. In order to protect the civilians on the ground, Captain America orders Scarlet Witch to levitate Crossbones above ground. She does and unfortunately is unable to contain the massive explosion that sets off near a populated building causing death and destruction.

Now, here’s the official movie synopsis released by Marvel:

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.

Whereas in the Marvel comic-books the New Warriors were the ones responsible for the deaths of more than 600 civilians by destroying several city blocks in an attempt to apprehend some supervillains - which in turn propels the government to adopt the Superhero Registration Act - it makes sense for the Marvel Cinematic Universe to adapt that storyline with the Avengers (in that case Captain America and Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch) trying to stop Crossbones (Frank Grillo) instead.

What do you think?
