Jeremy Renner All But Confirms Legitimacy of That Civil War Concept Art
This morning, some seemingly official Captain America: Civil War concept art was released, which also happened to reveal our favorite superheroes' allegiances in the battle between Iron Man and Captain America. Now, Jeremy Renner has shared the concept art on his official Twitter, and all but confirms that it's bonafide Marvel promotional material.

Again, spoilers ahead!









His captions on the pictures very heavily imply that they're official; "got new threads," in particular, seems to confirm that this is a legitimate picture of his new costume in Civil War. It also just seems highly unlikely that he would share this art on his Twitter if it were faked or fan art, if only because Marvel would have a fit. Then again, he has been known to do dumb things during Marvel promotional events, so you never know.

But for all intents and purposes, it seems that the promo art is real, so we can now safely assume that Iron Man's team consists of Black Widow, War Machine, Black Panther, and Vision, while Captain America's team includes Bucky Barnes, Sam Wilson, Hawkeye, Ant-Man, and Sharon Carter. Iron Man's team seems a little more stacked with impressive superpowers than Cap's team, which mostly just consists of regular humans in costumes, but Tony Stark's never been much of an underdog, so that makes sense.

The official synopsis for Captain America: Civil War reads:

Opening quote
Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
