Hello. My name is Helmut Zemo. I have a simple plan: I'm going to hire Crossbones to pretend to steal a bioagent so Captain America will try to stop him but fail to prevent him from using a suicide belt, thus necessitating Scarlet Witch to trap the explosion in an energy bubble but misjudge its potency, thereby accidentally destroying a building. This will of course cause the UN (which in this universe has actual political power) to meet to discuss limiting the authority of superheroes, since they've only saved all of humanity twice at the cost of slightly more civilians than people who die worldwide of cigarette smoking per hour, thus allowing me to bomb the UN and kill the King of Wakanda, who was only there because the destroyed building had a few Wakandans in it. I know that even though the Wakandans are an insular people with super advanced technology that they would trust the UN security's competence with the life of their king. I will then frame Bucky for this so that the UN will track him down and attempt to kill him because I know Captain America will stop them and attempt to help him escape. This is my plan because I know Black Panther, who is only involved because the King of Wakanda died because of the Wakandan civilians in the destroyed building I couldn't possibly expect to be there, will accidentally get them all arrested. Then I'll infiltrate the UN even though they know my face as a HYDRA guy and set Bucky off, thus instigating a 'civil war' between the superheroes that will result in zero deaths. I also expected Spiderman, Scarlet Witch, and Ant-Man to join in the fray even though none of them have any motive for doing so, and for the fight to be inconclusive.

DC/WB: Civil War
>"It was either Variety or Vanity Fair that wrote an article that said DC needs to watch what they’re doing on TV, because the TV’s working and some of the other darker stuff isn’t working. Here’s what I’ll say about him not being The Flash. The first thing is that for Zack Snyder to say ‘that’s not really the universe that we’re building,’ it’s excruciating for an actor. Because you’re like, ‘Uh, what about acting?’ He’s a clean-cut guy and winning, yes, because he’s acting that. He’s not Barry Allen. He’s Grant Gustin. He created that thing. If you want your Flash to have long hair and be a slacker, believe me, Grant can play that. He makes it look easy and makes everyone think that’s what he is because he’s an incredibly skilled talent. That’s why he has that job. That’s why people like the show. If Zack Snyder were to read him for The Flash, he would be shocked. It’s crazy for a big-time Hollywood director to say ‘that’s not the universe.’ It’s a huge misstep on his part. If you’re a director, and you’re worth your oats, then you should be able to, given an actor with talent, mold him into what you want, and Grant could do that."
