The battle is on in Captain America: Civil War.

Based on the new cover of Entertainment Weekly, which gives you the first look at the highly anticipated new installment, Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) are going to battle it out over who should have power. But it's not what you think. They aren't fighting each other to see if Evans' character or Downey's character should be in control; the battle is to determine whether or not governments should intervene or stay out of it.

Captain America is pro-independence and all in favor of allowing people to distinguish between right and wrong on their own terms, while the man in metal wants governments to regulate those who claim they only want to do what's best for the people. His beliefs stem from a guilty conscience as result of his actions in The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

"In most of the movies, there's no question who we should be siding with," Evans tells EW. "We all agree Nazis are bad, aliens from space are bad. But this movie's the first time where you really have two points of view. It becomes a question of morality and I don't think [Cap] has ever been so uncertain with what right and wrong is."

But what is really piquing everyone's interest is Chadwick Boseman's character, Black Panther, who basically stole the show in the trailer. The first black superhero is finally making his Marvel Comics movie debut, and by the looks of this photo and the trailer, he'll be bringing a lot to the table.

Whom is he going to side with? Both Captain America and Iron Man are vying for his allegiance, but fans will just have to wait until May 6 to find out what's to come between these three. The trailer revealed that tensions are at an all time high among Cap, Iron Man, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie).

During one part of the trailer, Black Widow warns Cap that taking a stand might not be worth it because of the potential consequences. "You know what's about to happen," she says. "Do you really want to punch your way out of this?"

Watch the video below to hear why Evans was apprehensive about taking on his superhero role.
