The release of Avengers: Age of Ultron is fast approaching, and with it, so is the start date on Captain America: Civil War.
According to Collider, casting calls for the movie have gone out with a start date of April 1st, 2015, although they also go on to state filming “could commence even earlier than that”. This would make sense as Marvel generally begins production on their movies a little over a year out from release. (Captain America: Civil War is set for May 6th, 2016.)
They also went on to state that they’ve learned Daniel Bruhl will, in fact, be playing Baron Zemo, which was something that was rumored since Marvel announced his casting back in November.
They have also provided an unofficial synopsis that was sent out with the casting notices:
Following the events of Age of Ultron, the collective governments of the world pass an act designed to regulate all superhuman activity. This polarizes opinion amongst the Avengers, causing two factions to side with Iron Man or Captain America, which causes an epic battle between former allies.
Captain America: Civil War stars Chris Evans (Captain America), Robert Downey (Iron Man), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier), and Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye).
Spider-Man is also rumored to appear in Captain America: Civil War, but as of right now, there is no news as to who will play him. Although, it does look like there’s plenty of movement on that front.
