We are just days away from seeing Team Iron Man face off against Team Captain America in Marvel’s newest blockbuster, Captain America: Civil War. The stakes are high for both sides as a Superhero Registration Act threatens to tear the Avengers apart. Team Iron Man believes that registering their identities with the government will help protect innocent civilians from collateral damage. Meanwhile, Team Captain America thinks that such an act would do more harm than good. Fans have been choosing a side for months, and both teams are ready to go head-to-head. However, with all of this talk of “which side are you on,” there is one man who has yet to align with one of these teams. We are of course talking about the head honch of Marvel himself, Stan freaking Lee.

In particular, they had a lot of details to share about the Infinity War movies and the future of everyone’s favorite space-faring misfits.
War is coming for the MCU, ready to kick off Phase Three and all the cosmic hullabaloo that entails. Civil War is definitely going to be one of the most ambitious Marvel superhero films we’ve seen so far and Disney are doing their best to keep the hype-train rolling until May 6th, when we can finally get to enjoy the cinematic brawl. And judging by the recently revealed footage that was shown during the MTV Music Awards, this is going to be one heck of a ride…
