The Russo Brothers are replacing the comic book's "Superhero Registration Act" with the "Sokovia Accords" shown in the "Captain America: Civil War" trailer.

Anthony and Joe Russo, also known as the Russo Brothers, are helming the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe flick to be one of the most awaited movies for 2016.

One of their most noticeable touches in the movie is the recently revealed document that will be the center of the "Civil War" conflict: the Sokovia Accords.

While it has a different title than the comic book's "Superhero Registration Act," the document is basically the same, per a report from Breath Cast.

According to Cinema Blend, the Sokovia Accords will also be known as the "global superhero legislation" that will regulate superhero activity.

This, says Techno Buffalo, basically means that the Avengers, among other superheroes, will act as a "police force" according to the orders of a panel, who will decide when it is "appropriate and/or necessary" for the heroes to take action.

Here is what the document states:

"In accordance with the document at hand, I hereby certify that the below mentioned participants, peoples and individuals, shall no longer operate freely or unregulated, but instead operate under the rules, ordinances and governances of the afore mentioned United Nations panels, acting only when and if the panel deems it appropriate and/or necessary."

The document also contains the names of the members of the Avengers who are currently confirmed to appear in the upcoming "Captain America" movie, including Clint Barton a.k.a. Hawkeye, James Rhodes a.k.a. War Machine, Natasha Romanoff a.k.a. Black Widow, Vision, Wanda Maximoff a.k.a. Scarlet Witch, Steve Rogers a.k.a. Captain America, Anthony "Tony" Stark a.k.a. Iron Man and Sam Wilson a.k.a. Falcon.

As expected, neither Bruce Banner a.k.a. Hulk nor Thor were mentioned in the accords, since they both will be going on a quest of their own in "Thor: Ragnarok."

Classica Lite noted the similarity of the "Civil War" film's conflict to the real-life World War II that persecuted Jews and other people deemed by the Nazis as "undesirable."

"Those who don't fit the norm are required to be ID'ed by the government, whether they wish to or not, or else face consequences. Hmm. Sounds like something the Nazi's did with the Jews. Star of David, anyone?" the outlet noted.

Of course, the Nazis have no connection whatsoever to Sokovia Accords, since it was basically born after the devastation in the country caused by Ultron, which means we will all have to see what it holds until the theatrical release of "Captain America: Civil War" on May 6, 2016.
