So Marvel kick-started their third phase of the “hugely successful” Marvel Cinematic Universe with style and in a grand manner. This film is a one of its kind because in spite of the huge star cast and a band of superheroes, every character have had the time to built up their portion in the movie. Of course, the addition of Robert Downey Jr.‘s Tony Stark a.k.a. Iron Man was what drew much more fans worldwide. But not only was Iron Man that people were excited for this time. Black Panther was introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the first time. But most exciting addition was that of Spider-Man’s (Played by Tom Holland), who was introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe finally after a long wait of the fans all around the globe.
So the film serves as a fight between two Teams:
Firstly Team Iron Man consisting of Iron Man, Iron Patriot, Black Widow, Vision, Black Panther and Spider-Man.
Next is Team Cap which includes Captain America, Hawk-Eye, Falcon, Winter Soldier, Scarlet Witch and Ant-Man.
The story, as expected, is a continuation of Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015). The events of that movie led to a death of numerous people. So the Sokovia Accords, approved by 117 countries, were to be implemented on the Avengers which was partly because of what happened at Laos where the Avengers were present to capture Crossbones a.k.a Rumlow. Things went out of hand and people died. The Sokovia Accords led to different opinions and the formation of the two teams. Adding fuel to these events were the false accusation of the involvement of James Buchanan Barnes a.k.a. The Winter Soldier in a bombing in Wakanda. This led to a Iron Man’s group trying to capture Barnes and Cap’s group trying to find the truth behind the events. Cap and Winter Soldier escapes and heads to Siberia while others in Cap’s team is captured. Meanwhile Tony learns that Barnes was falsely accused and that Colonel Helmut Zemo of Sokovian intelligence is behind the attacks, and he rendezvous with Steve and Barnes in Siberia. There Zemo plays with Tony’s mind by showing him a video of his parents being killed by Barnes back in 1991 when he was actually controlled by HYDRA. He gets angry and tried to kill Barnes and they get involved in a fight. Lastly Tony burns the metal hand of Barnes. All of them gets devastated during the fight, At last Cap leaves with Barnes but leaves his shield behind as Tony says that it was his father who made the shield and it did not belong to Cap. Lastly we see that Steve sends an apology letter to Tony telling him he would understand someday why Cap did whatever he had done. In the last scene we see Cap visiting the prison where his team is captured, most probably to free them.
In the first end credit scene we see that Barnes decides to go to sleep in a frosting chamber until people figures how to undo the damage HYDRA had done to his mind because he is himself not able to trust his mind and we see T’Challa a.k.a Black Panther helping Cap to recover Barnes.
In the second end-credit scene we see Peter Parker returning home and he has a display watch, probably given by Tony. And the audience is told that Spider-Man will return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
