Road to Avengers Infinity War | The best and worst of Captain America: Civil War

Dubbed Avengers 2.5, Captain America: Civil War was still probably a Captain America film at its heart. Since it was basically about Cap’s journey from Captain America to a fugitive. What began as an ideological conflict between Iron Man and Captain America became an actual battle at the end. We had seen Marvel superheroes fighting before, but this was a proper war. Civil War was not only a fantastic movie in itself, it also set the stage for Avengers: Infinity War. It also demonstrated the ability of the Russo brothers to handle multiple superheroes in one film and give them enough space and screen time to allow their own arc. Well, most of them anyway.

After Scarlet Witch accidentally kills civilians in a building to save Captain America, US Secretary of State informs the Avengers that UN is preparing to pass the Sokovian Accords, that would enable a panel to oversee the Avengers. Tony Stark is of the opinion that they should sign the accords, while Steve Rogers differs. The battle ensues.
