New Footage from Captain America: Civil War Explains the Sokovia Accords
The Russo brothers just posted a video (via their Facebook page) with footage from Captain America: Civil War playing in the background--and then talked over it for most of the video, because they're mean. However, you can still see and hear part of the scene if you're looking very closely, which of course we all are:

The scene seems to take place right after that moment in the trailer where General Ross (William Hurt) shows them the various cities that have been destroyed by the Avengers. Some of the dialogue is drowned out, but he seems to be laying down the law with the Sokovia Accords, which was signed by 117 members of the U.N., and "states that the Avengers should no longer be a private organization. Instead, they will operate under the supervision of the United Nations panel, only when and if that panel deems it necessary."

This description of the Sokovia Accords is interesting, because it does sound perfectly reasonable that a superhero team that has destroyed entire cities would need supervision. Even Steve seems like he understands it at first, but I'm guessing that its extension to registering individual superpowered humans is where he believes it crosses the line.

Here's the official synopsis for Captain America: Civil War:

Opening quote
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 6, 2016.
