Another superhero movie you say? Yes, but this one is going to be the biggest ever. 

Captain America: Civil War hits cinemas 29 April and it's predicted to be the highest grossing film of the year, if not ever.

Why so big? Here's why...

1 | Spider-Man makes his MCU debut

British actor Tom Holland will don the tightest onesie you have ever seen (Iron-Man gag!) as Spider-Man makes his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut. About time too. After much toing and froing between Marvel and Sony Pictures, who own the rights to Spider-Man, a deal allowing Spidey to appear in the MCU will please comic book fans. And, of course, increase ticket sales.

2 | Say hello to Black Panther

Civil War is the start of a colossus three years for Marvel and the introduction of new characters. Like Spider-Man, Black Panther makes his MCU debut, played by American actor, screenwriter and playwright Chadwick Boseman. If you thought Spider-Man's introduction to this movie was huge, the introduction of the Black Panther is going to be bigger. His stand alone film is scheduled to be in cinemas in 2018.

3 | Joe Russo and Anthony Russo are directing

The brothers are behind the best Marvel film to date - Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The directing duo are also taking over Joss Whedon to direct the Avengers: Infinity War films. They are very good at this directing lark and will make the latest Marvel outing very special indeed.

4 | Superheroes everywhere

The film has been dubbed 'Avengers 2.5'. Iron-Man, Captain America, Spider-Man, Black Widow, Falcon, Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch, Ant-Man, Black Panther, Vision and Bucky Barnes will all appear in the film. Could you cram anymore costume clad superheroes on a big screen?

5 | Good vs good standoff

Typical movie plot line. Good vs evil. Big fight scene. Good beats evil. Not this one. We get to see Iron-man fight Captain America so the plot will go something like this: Good vs good. Big fight scene. Enter evil bad guy. Good and good get together and fight evil. Confused? You will be. Just enjoy the ride.
