New Captain America: Civil War Poster Shows Off Iron Man's Team
Captain America: Civil War will split Marvel's usually amicable superhero team down the middle, and a new international poster from Marvel previews the superheroes that will side with Tony Stark- at least initially.

On this poster, Black Widow, Vision, Black Panther, and War Machine team up with Tony Stark for a kind of terrible Photoshop hack job. It's often hard to tell whether these posters are legitimately from Marvel or not; this seems to be official, but it could easily be a fan poster and I wouldn't know the difference.

Chris Evans also spoke about Captain America: Civil War in a recent interview with Cineplex (via CBR), and Steve' Rogers's difficulty in dealing with a complex conflict with no straightforward right answer:

Opening quote
"You have this team of people who are destroying every city they go to, but they're saving the world," Evans said. "So it's a matter of, do we monitor these people or do we let them monitor themselves? The beautiful thing with 'Civil War' is that no one's right and no one's wrong; it's just your personal opinion."
Closing quote

As a frame of reference, he indirectly compared the conflict to the one between political conservatives and liberals in America:

Opening quote
"There's a great parallel that they draw between my character and Tony Stark," he said. "It's something we can all relate to in terms of how we perceive our own society and culture, in terms of what is best for people. You can go right down to Democrat & Republican; everyone has a different opinion of what's best."
Closing quote

In this interview, it seems that Evans is only saying that, like the conflict between Republicans and Democrats, there is no definitive right answer. But judging from the source material, there will likely be many parallels between the conflict in Civil War and real-life political controversies, although neither side easily falls into "liberal" or "conservative" categories. In general, I would say that Tony Stark has a more conservative outlook and Captain America a more liberal one in this conflict (which is why I side with the latter), but if you draw parallels to the gun control debate, for example, then it gets a little dicier.
