Captain America (Chris Evans) leads the opposition with his patriots Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), ex-SHIELD agent (and Peggy’s niece) Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and it looks like Cap has won back his former friend Bucky Barnes, who was transformed into the brainwashed HYDRA assassin Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan).
