Marvel's Phase 2 Box Set Contains Major Civil War Easter Egg
Anticipation for Captain America: Civil War is at an all-time high right now after the recent unveiling of the film's amazing trailer, where we first caught a glimpse of the Sokovia Accords - the MCU version of the comics' Superhero Registration Act. But wouldn't it be nice to know what the document actually says?

Turns out we can. The Sokovia Accords (or at least a condensed version of them) are included as one of the many extra items in Marvel's Phase Two Blu-Ray box set, which you can purchase here for $185. Or, if you don't want to spend $185, you can read what the Accords say right here:

Opening quote
"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 panel, acting only when and if the panel deems it appropriate and/or necessary."
Closing quote


So basically, the document says what we thought it would: It's now illegal for superheroes to operate without the approval of the Government, in this case a U.N. panel. Tony Stark agrees with the document, Cap oppposes it: Boom, civil war. There are also lines for eight signatures: James Rhodes (War Machine), Clint Barton (Hawkeye), Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow), Vision (who's an android without a real name), Wanda Maximoff (Scarlet Witch), Sam Wilson (Falcon), Tony Stark (Iron Man), and Steve Rogers (Captain America). Interesting that they wouldn't at least put Bruce Banner or Thor on the document. We know they're not in the movie, but you'd still think they'd want them to sign eventually. Also absent are Peter Parker (Spider-Man) and T'Challa (Black Panther), who are in the movie, but may just not be known by the panel. We're guessing Stark, Vision, Rhodes, and Romanoff all sign on, while the four others oppose, since those are the teams as we understand them in the film.
