Production has begun on Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War,” the third film in the franchise starring Chris Evans as the star-spangled superhero.

Cap will have plenty of company in the follow-up, including Black Panther and Avengers old and new.

The film features veteran Avengers Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and new Avengers Falcon (Anthony Mackie), the Vision (Paul Bettany), War Machine (Don Cheadle) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen).

“Civil War” also stars Sebastian Stan, who reprises his “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” role, and “Ant-Man” star Paul Rudd, who will make his first appearance alongside the Avengers. “Winter Soldier” cast members Emily VanCamp (Sharon Carter/Agent 13) and Frank Grillo (Brock Rumlow/Crossbones) are also returning, as well as William Hurt, who appeared in Marvel’s “The Incredible Hulk” as General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross.

Newcomers include Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther and Daniel Brühl and Martin Freeman as characters yet to be announced.

The film, helmed by “Winter Soldier” directors Joe and Anthony Russo, picks up after the events of this month’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” with Steve Rogers leading the team of new Avengers in their efforts to safeguard humanity.

“After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team,” reads the film’s official synopsis. “The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.”

Principal photography for “Civil War,” which is set for release on May 6, 2016, is taking place at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, as well as locations in Germany, Puerto Rico and Iceland.
