Marvel Announces New Crossover Event Series, 'Avengers Standoff!"
At their New York Comic Con comics panel, Marvel announced an all-new Avengers crossover series, Avengers: Standoff!. 

The series will take place in Pleasant Hill, a seemingly idyllic gated community with a sinister underbelly (with a name like Pleasant Hill, which sounds just like Pleasantville, what do you expect?). The residents begin to revolt, and the Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D. are called in to keep the peace. It will start with a standalone issue, Standoff!: Assault on Pleasant Hill Alpha, and then continue with tie-in issues of Sam Wilson, Captain America; All-New, All-Different Avengers; Uncanny Avengers; New Avengers, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, and more titles yet to be announced.



The series was originally conceived as a celebration of Captain America's 75th anniversary next year, so it heavily feature all three Captain Americas currently in the Marvel Universe: Steve Rogers, Bucky Barnes, and Sam Wilson. 

Here's Marvel's official description:

Opening quote
From the outside it looks like any other remote small town. Only Pleasant Hill is anything but. This gated community holds a dark and sinister secret – one that keeps its residents locked away behind its walls. Now, the time has come for its townsfolk to finally escape. As their revolt begins - why then are the Avengers trying to keep them inside?! And what does it have to do with S.H.I.E.L.D.? Even Earth's Mightiest Heroes won't be prepared for the truth behind Pleasant Hill.
Closing quote


Marvel's Avengers: Standoff! will begin in March 2016.
