I didn't read the Civil War series, but I understand the gyst of it. Still,in the MCU, secret identities seem to have gotten thrown out the window. Thor seems to be Thor all the time. Cap's identity isn't secret and he hasn't really made a point of keeping the mask on at all times. Tony Stark made his own public declaration at the end of the first Iron Man. And Black Widow was outed publically at the end of "Winter Soldier".
I can see that there's the potential for the US government to want to get these super powered individuals under their control. It looks like the first bits of that are already beginning to play out on Agents of SHIELD with the conflict between SHIELD and General Talbot's unit. Factions like Talbot's within the military seem to be seeking to fill the void left by the destruction of SHIELD as an organization.
The thing is... I don't know if I can see either Cap or Iron Man in the MCU taking sides against one another. Their relationship has certainly been tense, but seems to have grown. And both of them have encountered government forces in MCU films that would leave them skeptical about some sort of government registration. But then we do have the events of Avengers - Age of Ultron set to take place, and no doubt that's going to shape the big picture storyline heading into Captain America 3.
