New 'Captain America: Civil War' Synopsis Released

Following the release of the first Captain America: Civil War trailer, a new synopsis has been released; it pretty much sums up the expected premise also revealed in the trailer, and it also encourages fans to pick a side: Iron Man's pro-superhero registration side vs. Captain America's anti-registration side?

Here's the synopsis:

Marvel's Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark's surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel's Captain America: Civil War opens in U.S. theaters on May.

Captain America: Civil War will be released in U.S. theaters on May 6, 2016.
