In the aftermath of several incidents involving the Avengers, which resulted in collateral damage throughout recent years, a law known as the Zakovia Accords is passed by the United Nations, requiring the regulation of superhuman activity, which fractures the Avengers into two groups lead by Captain America (Chris Evans) who opposes the legislation, and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), who supports the legislation. When Captain America's old friend Winter Soldier/Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) is framed for a terrorist bombing at the signing of the accords, tensions between Rogers and Stark escalate into an all-out battle between the two factions. Meanwhile, a new threat lurks in the shadows in the form of vengeful villain Baron Zemo (Daniel Bruhl), whose true motives have yet to be revealed.
