Factual Mistake
In the final fight scene between Iron Man and Captain America, Stark not only struggles to overcome Rogers, but actually get beaten on the face by empty handed Rogers. According to the Marvel Universe that'd be impossible. Cap can lift max 1200 pounds, while Stark on suit is classified "Potentially incalculable, able to lift in excess of 100 tons". Even if Captain's shield is theoretically indestructible, Rogers is not, any moment without the shield, Stark could take him in one blow. In addition to that, Iron Man's suit is made (in lower scale) of the same metal as the Hulk-Buster which can take hits by Hulk (100t+), Captain America could never break through the shell by punching it.

Factual Mistake
The hand grenade thrown in the African fight sequence ticks before exploding. The delay in a hand grenade detonation is achieved by a chemical reaction, not a mechanical clockwork

Character Error
When the Avengers are debating whether to sign the Sokovia Accords or not, the Vision says it's been eight years since Tony Stark revealed to the world that he's Iron Man. However, as established in previous films via dialogue and dates, the events in question took place six years prior to the current storyline
Trivia:
The film was released the same year as another film which has the word "war" in the title "The Huntsman: Winter's War". That film stars Chris Hemsworth who plays Thor in the cinematic Marvel comic book universe. Thor does not appear in this film. Emily Blunt who stars opposite Chris Hemsworth in that film was originally cast as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow in "Iron Man 2", but had to turn it down due to her commitment on "Gulliver's Travels" and Scarlett Johansson was cast. Scarlett Johansson appears in this film as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow.

While there was always intended to be a third party hero who wouldn't be aligned with Captain America or Iron Man, it wasn't necessarily Black Panther at first. A number of potential candidates were apparently suggested before Kevin Feige decided that Black Panther made the most sense.

Robert Downey Jr.'s other recurring role is Sherlock Holmes. Cast member Martin Freeman plays Doctor Watson on Sherlock (2010). Freeman co stars with Benedict Cumberbatch who shares the role of Sherlock will star in Doctor Strange (2016).

Marks the sixth collaboration between Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson in 12 years, following The Perfect Score (2004), The Nanny Diaries (2007), The Avengers (2012), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) and Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015).

Alfre Woodard, who portrays Mariah Dillard in Luke Cage (2016), appears in the film as Miriam Sharpe, the mother of an American citizen killed in the battle of Sokovia. Woodard was suggested for the role by Robert Downey Jr., before Marvel Studios learned of her casting in Luke Cage.

During a scene in the movie, Hawkeye refers to Tony Stark as 'the futurist', actor Robert Downey released an album called The Futurist in 2004.

Near the beginning of the film when Bucky is shown on a footage via surveillance cameras, the fade music in the background is from the "Captain America : The Winter Soldier" (2014) soundtrack, most probably the track "Winter Soldier". Both films have their score composed by Henry Jackman.

One of two comic book movies which sees two superheroes fighting each other in 2016. The other film is Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016).

Robert Downey Jr. and Paul Rudd have both worked with previous Spider-Man portrayer, Tobey Maguire. Rudd appeared with him in The Cider House Rules (1999) while Downey worked with him in Wonder Boys (2000) and a short scene at the beginning of Tropic Thunder. Wonder Boys also featured Michael Douglas, who played Dr. Pym in Ant-Man (2015).

Tom Holland commented on how intimidated he was when he came to audition for Spider-Man, Robert Downey Jr. took him aside and said, "Listen, I remember my screen test for Iron Man. I remember how terrified I was. Just think of it as an audition. It's nothing too scary. If you get it wrong, we'll just start again. No pressure

Not counting Daredevil (2015), Kevin Feige confirmed that the MCU will not shift into a dark path, so it is likely this movie will not be as dark or extreme as the comic books

On October 13, 2014, it was announced that Robert Downey Jr. will be joining the cast of this film, and that it will follow the Civil War storyline

Chadwick Boseman underwent a vigorous training program to get in fighting shape for the character. While admittedly not a big reader of comics as a kid, Boseman read as many comics as possible for anything Black Panther-related. Boseman also visited South Africa to better incorporate cultural aspects of the country into his role

Spider-Man was very nearly removed from the film, as Sony Pictures originally rejected Marvel's proposal to allow them a cut of the profit if they could pull Spider-Man over, but Sony Corporation expressed disappointment in the financial returns and the critical reception of The Amazing Spider-Man Series and decided to negotiate a deal again

Spider-Man has two costumes in the film, a makeshift one he's seen in YouTube footage and which Tony Stark eventually finds in Peter's apartment, and his classic costume, created with Tony's collaboration

T'Challa had a much smaller role in the earlier drafts and didn't even appear in costume, as the writers intended to put more focus on Spider-Man and save Black Panther's origin for his own movie. However, when it looked like Marvel would not be getting permission to use Spider-Man, Black Panther's role was beefed up significantly. By the time they did get to use Spider-Man, T'Challa had already become so integral to the plot that they decided to leave his role as is and give Spider-Man a smaller part

Co-director Joe Russo cited Se7en (1995) and Fargo (1996) as influences on this film

The film coincides with the 75th anniversary of Captain America. 2016 also marks the 10th anniversary of the original Civil War comic book and Black Panther's 50th anniversary

Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely's original idea for Captain America 3 was a vastly different and much smaller film without the other Avengers, but Kevin Feige suggested they adapt Civil War instead. Certain parts of their original idea still made into the movie, such as the emphasis on Steve and Bucky's relationship, as well as the use of Baron Zemo as the villain

Originally Iron Man was only going to have a small role in this movie. However, Robert Downey Jr. asked for more screentime and a higher paycheck. Marvel CEO Ike Perlmutter planned to have Iron Man written out of the film completely, in which case the Russos had backup plans to adapt another story in the event that happened. However, Kevin Feige persuaded Perlmutter to accept Downey Jr.'s deal.

Martin Freeman described Everett Ross as someone who "works for the American government...[and] works in conjunction with the superheroes, and certain agencies that help to tame the superheroes' power". In terms of whether Ross would side with Stark or Rogers in the film, Freeman said that Ross is "ambiguous" and "you don't know whether he's good or bad" so "you're not quite sure which side he's on. It looks a little bit like he's playing one game when actually he's playing another

Spider-Man's suit design is based on his original look in the comics when he debuted in 1962. The goggles change size to homage the various different designs they have had over the years

Samuel L. Jackson was "surprised" to discover that Nick Fury would not be in the film after "the Russo Brothers told [him he] was." Executive Producer Nate Moore stated that Fury was not included "because he didn't add anything to the Civil War story they were telling

Hope van Dyne was going to become The Wasp in an earlier draft of the script, but she was removed due to concerns that reducing her role to a cameo alongside the other characters would be a disservice to her as a character. The fact that Evangeline Lilly was pregnant at the time also probably influenced the decision. Kevin Feige has asserted that she will officially take on the Wasp mantle in a substantial role at a later point in Phase 3, which was later revealed to be in a new project entitled Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) rather than an existing Phase 3 movie

Tom Holland made audition tapes together with Jon Bernthal while filming Pilgrimage (2016), with Holland landing the role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Bernthal the role of Frank Castle/The Punisher in Daredevil (2015)

It has been confirmed that there will be a series a children's books based on the film and they will come out in the beginning of April 2016, a whole month before the movie comes to theaters

This will be the first theatrically released film featuring Spider-Man where the special effects for the character are not being produced by another company affiliated with Sony, the rights holder to Spider-Man. Industrial Light & Magic, which handles much of the special effects for the Marvel Cinematic Universe film series, will be producing the special effects

In this film, Tom Holland's portrayal Spider-Man/Peter Parker will be just 15 years old and already have discovered his spider-like powers, with Tom Holland being just 19 in real life

In an interview, Daniel Brühl said this movie's budget was so huge that you could make 20 films from it.

One scene shows Ant-Man being boosted by an arrow from Hawkeye. This is taken directly from the comics, specifically The Avengers

In the film, the Falcon utilizes a falcon drone called Redwing. In the mainstream Marvel comics, Redwing was an actual falcon, which was Sam Wilson's sidekick

Martin Freeman plays Everett Ross. His co-star in Sherlock (2010) Benedict Cumberbatch, who played alongside Freeman in Sherlock (2010), The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013), and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) is also slated to play Doctor Strange (2016)

In the first scene after credit waterfalls are shown in the kingdom of Wakanda. These scenes were filmed in Iguaçu Falls, in Foz do Iguaçu in Brazil

Since the announcement of the title, there has been a meme about the film featuring Steve Rogers and Tony Stark arguing over random topics followed by the the film's title reveal

Captain America, Hawkeye, Falcon, Winter Soldier, Scarlet Witch, Ant-Man, Iron Man, War Machine, Vision, Black Widow, Spider-Man and Black Panther are confirmed to appear. Thunderbolt Ross, who in the comics becomes the Red Hulk, is also featured. Hank Pym, Thor and Hulk are mentioned in dialogue

In an interview, Jeremy Renner said this movie will be like an Avengers movie due to a lot of characters involvement

The trailer broke the record previously held by Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) for the most views in 24 hours with 64 million views

This movie was announced, along with eight others, at a special Marvel event that laid out the franchises plans all the way up to 2019. Initially, the title was revealed to be 'Captain America: Serpent Society', but this was later reneged within the same event as weeks of rumours and leaks were confirmed and it was officially titled 'Captain America: Civil War'. According to Kevin Feige , the ruse was because "...we [didn't want to] blow our wad on the presentation with Civil War right at the front of it

Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans describe the dynamic between Iron Man/Tony Stark and Captain America/Steve Rogers as a marriage: "We love each other, but it's explosive. You're working toward the same goal but you have very different approaches to it. It's blurry and that's what makes it great: no one's right, no one's wrong. It's going to make it even harder for them to come to an agreement

The film was going to feature the Incredible Hulk, but he was shifted to Thor: Ragnarok (2017) and so the filmmakers chose General Ross in the film as a substitute to illustrate the theme of destructive power: "We thought it would be interesting to use a character who had a fanatical anti-superhero point of view, built on experience. He's cornering the Avengers politically now, he's out-maneuvering them

Co-director Joe Russo said that "the most powerful shot of the film" was Steve Rogers stopping a helicopter from taking off with his bare hands. The shot was even featured in the first teaser trailer for the film. Russo said Chris Evans worked very hard in the gym to physically embody the character because they wanted to test the limit's of Steve's physical strength. About the shot itself he noted, "On set we had Chris straining against a crane holding the helicopter to get this fantastic shot of his muscles bulging and you can feel the energy and determination as he tries to stop it

After the 'Civil War' crossover event in Marvel comics was complete another big crossover event was 'Secret Invasion,' which revealed that the shape-shifting alien villains The Skrulls had been replacing key people in government and the super powered community for decades, and that they are at least partially to blame for leading to the events of the civil war as a means to soften human society for a full scale invasion. Since the Skrulls are villains of the Fantastic Four, Disney/Marvel most likely can not use them in future films at this time. Also the idea of a "secret invasion" in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is already very close to what happened when HYDRA revealed they grew inside S.H.I.E.L.D

This is the live-action debut of T'Challa, the Black Panther, one of the first African superheroes

Iron Man orders Captain America to stay down, and Cap answers: "I could do this all day". That is the same answer he gave to a bully who was beating him up at the beginning of Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)

The filmmakers describe Barnes as a divided character: "He's not Bucky Barnes anymore, he's not the Winter Soldier anymore; he's something in between. There's a part of his personality that was under mind control, and he murdered a lot of people. So he's got a very complicated history. Who is that person? How does that character move forward

The Marvel video game Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 (2009) was also based on the Civil War comic
