"Captain America: Civil War"

According to reports a female character from "Captain America: The Winter Soldier", will reprise her role in Marvel Studios' "Captain America: Civil War", to be directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, opening May 6, 2016:

"...after being introduced in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier', actress Emily VanCamp will reprise her role of 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' agent 'Sharon Carter', aka 'Agent 13'...

"...also the niece of 'Peggy Carter', from the WW2 era..."

"...Sharon is a trained athlete and martial artist, highly trained in the ways of espionage, weapons, firearms and computers..."

"The new element in this film," said Joe Russo, "is that 'Captain America' and 'Iron Man' get into a fight with each other."

With the working production title Sputnik", the new film will be based on the 2006–2007 Marvel Comics' crossover, built around a seven-issue limited series written by Mark Millar ("Kick-Ass") and illustrated by Steve McNiven, also running through other titles published by Marvel at the time.

The plot follows conflicting reactions to the government passing a 'Superhero Registration Act'  designed to have 'superhumans' fall under official regulation.

Those opposed to the act, led by 'Captain America', find themselves in conflict with those in support of the act, led by a delusional 'Iron Man'. 

The events of the comic book series touch upon themes of common sense, liberty, moral responsibility and civil order, with good-intentioned superheroes finding themselves on different sides.
