Following the release of the first official trailer and a set of posters, the expanded synopsis for Captain America: Civil War has been released. In case you missed it the first time, it reads as follows:

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. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War opens in U.S. theaters on May.

In addition to the slightly expanded synopsis, Spider-Man actor Tom Holland has spoken out about his role in the film, expressing his excitement at teaming up with other heroes.

"It's very daunting, because obviously the first two guys were so great and they did such fantastic performances, so I've got quite a lot to follow," Holland told IGN about following in the footsteps of previous Spider-Man actors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. "I think I'll have the help from the rest of the Marvel Universe and what's quite exciting is when you read these comics that he's in, he interacts with a lot of other superheroes. So I don't know if they will -- they might do -- but I love the idea of teaming up with other people and getting to work with some of the cast that are in this universe."

Holland makes his debut as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War on May 6, 2016, before starring in an as yet untitled Spider-Man reboot scheduled for July 28, 2017.
