Possibly the best kept secret since Han Solo’s fate in Star Wars: The Force Awakens has finally been revealed – the look of Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War.
After months of playing with the internet and fans everywhere, Marvel Studios finally unveiled the webhead in the latest trailer for Captain America: Civil War.
This is the very first time fans have seen any bit of Tom Holland’s portrayal of Peter Parker. Not a single piece of promo art, merchandise, or footage has featured a slight look at Marvel’s Spider-Man.
In February of last year, Sony and Marvel struck a deal which would allow Spider-Man to appear in Captain America: Civil War, which, at the time, had barely begun production in Georgia. Tom Holland was not-so-quickly cast in the role and it was announced that following his first appearance in Civil War, we would get a standalone Spider-Man film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in July of 2017.
As the rumors go, Spider-Man is Team Iron Man in Civil War. Those rumors are consistent with Spider-Man’s allegiance in the earlier pages of the Civil War comics but he eventually ends up on Team Cap after being saved by The Punisher. No, that doesn’t mean you should hope The Punisher will appear in Civil War following his MCU debut in Daredevil this month, because he won’t.
Captain America: Civil War hits theaters May 6.
