Quick Guide to the teams battling it out in Captain America: Civil War!!

The most epic superhero battle is all set to unleash in theaters on 6th May as Captain America: Civil War is upon us!! New recruits such as Spider-Man (Tom Holland) and Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) join the familiar faces of Chris Evans as the Cap and Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man. Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Emily VanCamp, Frank Grillo and Martin Freeman, with William Hurt and Daniel Brühl.
While fans have been continuously talking about taking sides TeamCapAm and Team Ironman, for all you newbies out there here’s a quick guide as to who’s who in the film!! 
CAPTAIN AMERICA:

Chris Evans plays Captain America which is the superhero that abides by his moral values and is the most ethical. His counterpart in the comic book is different than in the movies as it is based more in the past and his equation with Iron man and other Avengers is also not the same. He is not the one to allow any force to control the Avengers and he won’t be alone. 
IRON MAN:

Iron Man/ Tony Stark is played by Robert Downey Jr. for the 6th time in Captain America- The Civil War. According to the trailers, Iron Man feels betrayed by Captain America’s actions. The Government wants to take control over the major decisions of the Avengers and Iron Man is willing to allow that. There’s likely to be a fight between Captain America and Iron Man in this movie and they won’t be backing out from this fight. 
THE WINTER SOLDIER:

We come to know at the end of second Captain America movie that Sebastian Stan’s Winter Soldier remembers that he was once Bucky Barnes who was Captain America’s best friend. In Ant Man it is revealed that the Winter Soldier has been found. The presence of Bucky on Captain America’s team creates sharp negative feelings from Iron Man’s team. 
THE BLACK WIDOW:

Scarlett Johansson has been seen in both Captain America and Iron Man movies and she has always been more close to Captain than Tony. However it surprises everyone that she sides with Iron Man in Civil war. But have her loyalties been distinct before? We will see her caught up and conflicting with her actions. 
FALCON:

In the film, Captain America: The winter soldier, Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson was shown to form a friendship and also a partnership with Captain even before he became Falcon and a member of Avengers in the Age of Ultron. Falcon will soar high with ‘Redwing’ which will be seen as a drone in this movie instead of the actual falcon. He will naturally side with Captain America. 
WAR MACHINE:

James Rhodes was close to Tony since a long time and Don Cheadle wasn’t shown playing Rhodey when he first came in the MCU but we will see Cheadle’s War Machine as an established Avenger of Age of Ultron. He will side with Tony and given his military background he is going to be okay with the Government control over Avengers. 
AGENT 13:

Emily VanCamp was seen for barely a scene in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. She’s unable to tell Captain that she’s Sharon Carter who is Peggy Carter’s sister later determined as her niece.  Their relationship isn’t clear in MCU but Captain will get over how Agent 13 spied on him for Nick Fury by pretending to be his neighbor. When she was last seen, Agent 13 was giving an interview with the CIA for a position but in Civil War she is along with Captain quite openly. 
BLACK PANTHER:

Chadwick Boseman will be shown playing Black Panther as T’Challa in Civil War before he will begin his journey separately in his own Black Panther movie. He has a grudge against The Winter Soldier and if Black Panther is drawn on the same line as his comic book counter-part then he’ll be having his own agendas which will be absolutely different than both Iron Man and Captain America. 
HAWKEYE:

Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton was shown retiring from action but he answers call to Captain America and sides with him, but he goes against Black Widow his closest friend. 
VISION:

If anyone saw this folly of Captain and Iron Man it could definitely be Paul Bettany’s Vision, the Android hero. Yet he is shown to side with Iron Man here. He hasn’t created his full identity and could be a wildcard in this battle. 
SCARLETT WITCH:

She isn’t 100% loyal to neither Tony nor Captain. So she may side with anyone but Tony made weapons that had killed her parents so chances are that she may side with Captain. Her mental state is questionable too so one can’t say for sure whose team she’ll join. 
SPIDER-MAN:

For the very first time Spider-Man will be shown joining the other Marvel  Heroes on the screen. His part will also be more than it was actually visualized. Tom Holland’s Peter Parker  may or may not appreciate Tony ‘s nickname for his alter-ego but we will see what happens. 
ANT-MAN:

Falcon happens to know a guy who isn’t a part of Avengers and can help Captain. Barely after a year of debut in MCU, Ant-Man will be played in this film by Paul Rudd. He is delighted to play a superhero but will Scott Lang a.k.a Ant-Man be as happy after the events of Civil War. 
EVERETT K.ROSS:

Martin Freeman will debut in MCU with Civil War and he is known to be Black Panther’s most supporting character. But in the comics Ross is a true friend to Black Panther and is in the U.S State Department and in the movie his character is portrayed vaguely as a member of The Joint Counter Terrorism Centre. The question is who’s side does Ross take? 
GENERAL THADDEUS “THUNDERBOLT” ROSS:

In the Incredible Hulk Movie, William Hurt was General Ross and he is back now as the fate of Avengers lies in his hands. The last interaction of General Ross and Tony Stark was quite cold but they are aligned this time out of necessity. Ross is likely to be more on his own side as he attempts to take control over the super humans which he couldn’t achieve while chasing Hulk. 
CROSSBONES:

Frank Grillo’s Brock Rumlow had survived the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D in the Winter Soldier, and he’s like his comic book counter-part of the Super Villian identity.Crossbones is coming as an enemy of the Avengers.If the movie follows the footsteps of the comics then he may have a terrific part in the conclusion. 
HELMUT ZEMO:


The Avengers is surely threatened by  Daniel Brühl’s Helmut Zemo and while their fighting each other he’s busy making plans. He won’t be wearing his famous mask as he did in the comics as he’s MCU’s version of Baron Zemo. But it’s going to be huge while the question remains will Captain America and Iron Man be successful in  defeating Zemo together or not? 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 theaters on May 6, 2016.

Swara Bhaskar has always been at the forefront of social causes and is known for voicing her opinion against issues related to women’s safety, education and others affecting the society.
This time, Swara has lent her support to campaign against child sexual abuse. The versatile actress, who strongly believes against the cruel act, has shot for a special video creating awareness regarding the same. In the video, Swara is seen narrating poetries for kids also revealing the shameful act which is unfortunately prevalent in our society.
According to an in-depth survey on child sexual abuse in the country disclosed that every second child has been subjected to one or more forms of sexual abuse.
Swara says, Quote : We all know that CSA is prevalent in our society but to this extent?? Really made me feel that I should raise my voice and do everything I can to increase awareness and dialogue in the society.
People don't want to talk about it. Most of the smaller incidents are dismissed. And these poems are written by Manish Gupta paint an extremely gory picture but this is our reality today and we should be ashamed of it. 
This video is part of a  'Hindi Kavita' project that is not just a YouTube channel - it's a social revolution. Primarily, they are dedicated to make Hindi / Urdu cool and more aspirational. When they shared the data that every other child is affected by CSA, I was shocked. There was no way I could stay away from such a cause.
