Ever since the amazing first trailer for Captain America: Civil War dropped a few weeks back, we’ve been uber-excited for the third movie centring on the First Avenger. Now that the trailer has dropped and everyone knows who’s on who’s side, Marvel studios has released a brilliant piece of promo art which zones in on the particulars of the film’s central showdown.

As seen above, the latest image shows off the titular war, with our favorite heroes engaged in battle with one another. We have Cap and Iron Man going head to head, Black Panther fighting off Bucky, The Falcon and War Machine duking it out, etc. The promo art doesn’t reveal anything we don’t already know but it’s still an amazing image.

An updated plot synopsis also hit earlier this week and you can check it out below:

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

Captain America: Civil War will head into battle when it hits theatres on May 6th, 2016.
