As part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 2 Box Set, buyers can get a sneak peak at part of the Sokovia Accords, which is the document at the heart of Captain America: Civil War. What does that document say? Well, you can check out a key section below, which describes how the Avengers would essentially be governed like a police force, acting only when a panel “deems it appropriate and/or necessary.”
As you can see, there’s room for eight signatures, including Vision, Sam Wilson, Anthony Stark and Steve Rogers. Notice how there’s no Bruce Banner, Thor, Black Panther, or Spider-Man, though the latter two are unknown to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, showing up for the first time in Civil War.
In accordance with the document at hand, I hereby certify that the below mentioned participants, peoples and individuals, shall no longer operate freely or unregulated, but instead operate under the rules, ordinances and governances of the afore mentioned United Nations panels, acting only when and if the panel deems it appropriate and/or necessary.
As we saw in the trailer, the Sokovia Accords divides the group right down the middle, and creates an especially big rift between Captain America and Iron Man. Having seen how corrupt S.H.I.E.L.D. was, you can understand why Captain America is so hesitant to buddy up to the government. But after Age of Ultron, it’s also easy to see why Tony Stark would be quick to sign up. Whose side are you on?
Captain America: Civil War is set to hit theaters on May 6, 2016.
