African and American audiences will have to wait longer till 5th and 6th  May to see “Captain America: Civil War,” but the longest, in run time, installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has already hit theaters across Europe, Asia and South America.

And like Global reviews earlier , critics around the world are raving over the third standalone “Captain America” film, with some calling it Marvel’s best by far.

Each of Marvel’s big heroes, including Captain America and Iron Man, leap from their own solo movies to join forces in “The Avengers” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron”. But now they’re back and split down the middle.

By pitting the Avengers against each other, “Civil War” provides the greatest test yet for Marvel’s band of heroes. If they stand together there’s no alien horde or robot battalion they can’t meet with a good old-fashioned sock in the jaw, but how do you punch your own doubts and fears?
