Who is Who in Each Team: Captain America Civil War

UPDATED 4/11/16

I wrote this up for my nephew who was confused about the alliances.
Captain America
Real Identity: Steve Rogers
Actor: Chris Evans
Powers: superhuman abilities 
Motivations: Championing civil liberties, he forms a rogue team after registration looming and his buddy Bucky is in danger
Previous Movies: Captain America, Captain America 2, Avengers, Avengers 2

Real Identity: Clinton Barton
Actor: Jeremy Renner
Powers: Really good at shooting arrows
Motivations: There could be a fallout between him and Black Widow, he named his daughter after her. Drawn out of retirement to stand beside Captain America, Hawkeye is military man through and through and doesn't have any use for politics. He is there for Cap at any cost — against anyone, even his closest friends.
Previous Movies: Thor (Cameo), Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron

Ant Man
Real Identity:  Scott Lang
Actor: Paul Rudd
Powers: Shrinking
Motivations: He went to prison as a social justice warrior so he probably is anti-government. Plus, probably wants to keep his secret identity to protect his family. Sam Wilson recruits the unwitting Ant-Man for Cap’s team. He is some what star-struck in Captain America’s presence.
Previous Movies: Antman

Former Winter Solider 
Real Identity: Bucky Barnes
Actor: Sebastian Stan
Powers: Bionic Arm, Enhanced reflexes/speed/etc
Motivations: He was brainwashed to be evil, now recovering and still have his 'shakes.'  He might have to pay for his crimes. 
Previous Movies: Captain America & Captain America: Winter Solider, Antman (Cameo)

Real Identity:  Sam Wilson
Actor: Anthony Mackie
Powers: He can fly with his suit
Motivations: Sam Wilson’s Falcon is now a full-fledged Avenger and he is fiercely loyal to Captain America and the team. Opposing the government and Tony Stark at the same time poses no problem for the winged Avenger, who sets out to recruit Ant-Man as an added bonus for Team Cap.
Previous Movies: Captain America: Winter Solider and Antman (Cameo)

Sharon Carter
Actor: Emily VanCamp
Motivations: She was Captain America's body guard in his last movie, she is Peggy's daughter and she still supports Steve. 
Previous Movie: Captain America: Winter Solider

Overall they are for super-powered individuals being registered with the government and controlling those who are more destructive than helpful. 

Iron Man
Real Identity: Tony Starks
Actor: Robert Downey Jr.
Powers: Suit, Mind
Motivations: Let's start with the big guy, he wants to protect the world from super-powered people who have proven in the past to be more destructive than helpful.
Previous Movies: Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Iron Man 3, Avengers, Avengers 2

War Machine
Real Identity: James Rhodes
Actor: Don Cheadle
Powers: Power suit
Motivations: Iron Man's main man
Previous Movies: Iron Man 2, Iron Man 3

Black Widow
Real Identity: Natasha
Actor: Scarlett Johnansen
Powers: Spy, different weapons
Motivations: Despite her loyalty and friendship with Steve Rogers since the early days of the now-defunct S.H.I.E.L.D., Natasha disagrees with his position and in a surprise move joins Tony Stark’s team, in support of governmental oversight. Always strategic in her thinking and heroic in her actions, Black Widow is an asset that Tony needs — but one that he cannot control.
Previous Movies: Iron Man 2, Avengers, Avengers 2, Captain America: Winter Solider

Black Panther
Real Identity: T'Challa
Actor: Chadwick Boseman
Powers: Absorbs attacks, enhanced strength, endurance, reflexes
Motivations: T’Challa’s father, T’Chaka, the King of Wakanda, joins the ranks of those who support government regulation after innocent citizens are collateral damage from an Avengers’ mission. But when events turn ugly, T’Challa must reveal himself as Black Panther and follow his own path. With his own agenda driving him, Black Panther aligns with Iron Man to achieve his own deeply personal goal.
Previous Movies: None, will be his first appearance in MCU

 The Vision
Actor: Paul Bettany
Powers: Synthetic body, superhuman durability, density manipulation, energy blasts
Motivations: He is an idealist, he believes registering superheroes with the government can serve with that goal. 
Previous Movies: Avengers: Age of Ultron

Scarlet Witch
Real Identity: Wanda Maximoff 
Actor: Elizabeth Olsen
Powers: Psionics, telepathy, mental control
Motivations: She might be the wild card she is confused and conflicted even though her character poster is blue. With her powers of mental manipulation and telekinesis, Wanda brings a new dimension to the newly formed Avengers team. Just as Wanda begins to feel like she is no longer an outsider, she is unwillingly at the center of the controversy over government regulation of the Avengers. Following Hawkeye, the one Avenger that she knows will always have her back, Wanda joins Cap’s team.
Previous Movie: Avengers: Age of Ultron

Real Identity: Peter Parkr
Actor: Tom Holland
Powers: Agility, throwing spider webs
Motivations: According to the profile, he was recruited personally by Tony Stark, teenager Peter Parker aka Spider-Man brings his youthful energy and exceptional — though not totally mastered — skills to Iron Man’s team.
