You have to refer to Captain America: Winter Soldier movie for that. In that movie, Arnim Zola tells to Cap about how Hydra infiltrated S.H.I.E.L.D and during that sequence, Zola says that Howard Stark's death was not an accident. For source check this video of the scene:

TL;DR: It's specifically because he's a being of logic. Also, because of love. First and foremost, it's important to remember Vision's original statement of loyalty from Age of Ultron. He is going to side with whichever group will protect life the best. CAPTAIN AMERICA: Are you? On our side? VISION: It's not that simple. (pause) I'm on the side of ...

Because T'Challa no longer believes that revenge is a good reason to take someone's life. Let's look at it from T'Challa's perspective at the point in the film when he decides that revenge isn't worth it. He's sitting next to the man who has killed multiple innocent people in his quest for revenge, after just learning that the man he was trying to kill (...

At the time of Civil War, T'Chaka was no longer the Black Panther, T'Challa was. According to the official prequel comic, Black Panther: Prelude, the mantle of the Black Panther was passed on to T' Challa many years earlier, around the time that the events of Iron Man were occurring. So, when the explosion happened, T'Chaka was just a normal person, as ...

Yes, as you provide evidence of, they have terrible radio discipline. Trigger discipline too. Obviously this is due to the medium, movies and comics are verbal and the film makers need you to relate to human (ish) characters in a short amount of time. Sticking to radio silence and code names would make them too stiff to like. That said, only Cap, Wilson ...

In short: He is a multi-billionaire genius and has sources, but here is what the official person who worked on the film said: And from geektyrant: So how exactly did Stark know about Peter Parker, a.k.a. Spider-Man? During an interview with ComicBook.com Markus offered a pretty cool explanation. "I think he's been keeping tabs. I think he ...

Isn't Tony Stark smart enough, though, to know that this is exactly what the bad guy wanted him to do? Wasn't that obvious enough? Of course. This is obvious to everyone, including Iron Man. But that's not the important part. We'll get into this more after the next bit. Also couldn't the Winter Soldier even try to convince him to settle that later ...

Although the other answers may be right when they say that it's a reference to the longstanding Brooklyn/Queens rivalry, as a native New Yorker, I think it is simpler than that. In the geography of New York City, Brooklyn and Queens are neighbors. They're both located on the western tip of Long Island. As we can see, Peter1 and Steve2 have lived most of ...

The Black Panther is a member of the royal family of the Kingdom of Wakanda and the title "Your Highness" is typically reserved for royalty. see wikipedia The character is usually depicted as the king and protector of Wakanda, a fictional African nation. Chadwick Boseman portrays the Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War (2016) and is set to return ...

Revenge makes people blind. Same happened to Iron Man, he became blind in revenge. From his first appearance in the film, it's shown how much he is affected by the loss of his parents and how much he feels guilt of what happened during their last conversation. So it was expected from him and Zemo did analyse him before making this complex plan. If you even ...

James Buchanan "Bucky" Barnes has already nearly killed Natasha Romanoff at least twice by the time that Captain America: Civil War takes place. The first time Bucky tried to kill Natasha was when she was on a mission with SHIELD. Five years ago I was escorting a nuclear engineer out of Iran, somebody shot at my tires near Odessa. We lost control, went ...

It's a mechanical bird for the Falcon. In the comics, Falcon has Redwing, a falcon Sam bought in Rio, and has been in the comics as far back as Captain America Vol 1 #186 (June, 1975), as old as Falcon himself. They even have a mental link: As part of a plot against Captain America, the Red Skull uses the Cosmic Cube, a creation that allows its user to ...

Zemo chose Bucky because Bucky killed Tony's parents. This drives the wedge between Tony & Steve which breaks up the Avengers. He says he couldn't defeat the Avengers even if he tried, as stronger men have tried and failed but if he can turn them against one another, then he can truly defeat the Avengers. Controlling any other Winter Soldier would ...

You are certainly right that this film seems to be chock full of Avengers. However, it is still a rather personal Captain America movie through and through. You could as well ask that question about Natasha Romanoff, the Black Widow, in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It's about more than just screen time. While there is a larger conflict between the ...

Of the four Team Cap members contained on the Raft, only Wanda is restrained. Only Wanda cannot talk. Only Wanda isn't moving around. Only Wanda looks braindead. She was not only in a straightjacket, preventing her from using her hands which it seems she needs to do to focus her magic/powers, but she also had a pair of blinking lights and a collar around ...

...no such indication that he ever learned to fight or defend... Are you sure? Iron Man 2 features a protracted sequence wherein Tony is doing just that.

Yes, but not many. It's possible that Bruce, Tony Stark, and possibly Howard Stark already know about the Wakandan vibranium. Besides them, there are more people who tried to intrude and steal vibranium from Wakanda. One of them is Ulysses Klaue, a guy Ultron gets Vibranium from. Here are some references. Captain America: The First Avenger Howard Stark:...

It's just to show us that Steve and Peter have a natural rapport, even when fighting on opposite sides. This is likely just intended to be set-up for a later film when they will be required to work together; establishing a common ground (such as the fact that they both come from New York) early on helps that relationship build naturally. It also plays into ...

Although Ankit Sharma's answer is correct, the user Plexus asked a good question: "But how does having huge amount of info about crime, help him 'see under the mask'?" I started replying to his comment, but my reply got too long, so here goes. The way I see it, having a huge amount of money plus advanced technology lets Tony Stark spy on people. Peter ...

Because she ditched the accord and Ross knows about it, as explained in Captain America: Civil War itself: Tony Stark: You let them go, Nat. Natasha Romanoff: We played this wrong. Tony Stark: 'We'? Boy, it must be hard to shake the whole double agent thing, huh? It sticks in the DNA. Natasha Romanoff: Are you incapable of letting go of ...

The trigger words, translated/subtitled from Russian into English, were: Longing Rusted Seventeen Dawn Stove Nine Kind-hearted Homecoming One Freight car No exact explanation has been given what the words actually reference, but hypnosis typically involves words and phrases in sequences that are unlikely to be randomly said in order.

According to Screenrant (beware: SPOILERS for future movies): the originally planned post-credits scene featuring Bruce Banner a.k.a. Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) would have been shot for the film but instead, as we learned from co-writer Christopher Markus, I'll put the information regarding the possible appearance in a future movie in spoilers: The reason ...

The world knows about Vibranium, and that Wakanda had some of it. When Klaue stole vibranium in the past, they reported to the UN that it was all the vibranium they had in the country. This was likely to prevent others from attempting to steal more. Everett K. Ross: My intel reports that the chunk of vibranium you took was all that Wakanda had. ...

Firstly, because if he had resuscitated the other "Winter Soldiers" there is no guarantee he would have been able to control them as he did Bucky. That's assuming he could find them. I don't recall that he knew where they were until midway through the movie. As Bucky said... He wanted to know about Siberia. Where I was kept. He wanted to know ...

While we do not know exactly HOW does the eyes of the Spider-man suit in Civil War move according to Peter Parker's own eyes, we definitely know WHY. When Tony Stark goes recruiting the young Peter Parker, he notices Peter's self made costume, with ridiculous goggles. Peter specifically says that he cannot focus on his vision correctly without the goggles, ...

The conflict in Captain America: Civil War is complicated, and the characters all have individual motivations - but the point of breaking the Avengers is the Sokovia Accords and the loyalty that Steve "Captain America" Rogers has towards his old friend Bucky (the Winter Soldier). Rogers is distrustful of authority after the events of Winter Soldier - SHIELD ...

The scene with General Ross explains this part pretty clearly. The Avengers are being hailed as heroes for saving the world, but they are also being condemned for the extreme amount of collateral damage they cause in the process. People are also very worried about the kind of problems any one of them could cause if they went rogue. (And this is not a ...

According to Comicbook.com, During this time, the only superhumans we know to be active are Black Panther (Wakandan monarch T'Chaka, played by Atandwa Kani), and possibly Captain Marvel (a yet-to-be-introduced Brie Larson). Her debut film, out in 2019, is set sometime during the 1990s — decades after Captain America (Chris Evans), Ant-Man (...

This is a hold over from the comics: It will likely be pseudo-science and/or hand-waved explained in the sequel "Ant-Man and the Wasp". The comic logic is that Pym Particles allow you to change your size. When growing, they pull extra mass from another dimension. Pym, or in this case Scott, gains mass when growing, hence he has increased strength ...

He actually knew. To quote my answer to this similar question on our sister site: He learns in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. When Captain America and Black Widow find the hidden SHIELD bunker that contains Arnim Zola's AI, one of the things that Zola explains is how HYDRA infiltrated SHIELD from the beginning. Rogers asks how that's possible ...
