CONFIRMED: Spider-Man Will Appear in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR
Raise your hand if you didn't think that Spider-Man would appear in Captain America: Civil War. None of you? Yeah, didn't think so. Ever since Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures announced that the webslinger had joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we've all suspected that Spider-Man would get at least a cameo in Civil War before getting his own film in 2017.
Entertainment Weekly confirmed on Thursday that Spider-Man will be Captain America: Civil War.
While visiting the set for EW, there was a particularly large battle going on involving many different characters from the film. Most of them, you know about already. But one, standing off to the side, was a stuntman wearing a very familiar red and blue suit that covered him from head to toe.
“Listen, if there was a cosplayer running around that set when you were there, I don’t know what to tell you,” Feige said.
Fair enough. But then, during the very same battle sequence, just hanging around off-camera, Robert Downey Jr. comes strolling by. He’s laughing and talking with his arm slung over the shoulder of a young man who, if Feige is right, is doing some pinpoint Tom Holland cosplay – and wearing a full Spider-Man suit, except for the mask.
Later, in an interview, Downey just spills it: “[Don] Cheadle and I are just going, ‘Wow, dude, look at this.’ We’re now like the old guard, and our storyline carries real weight just because of our history in the [canon]. But we’re also looking around like, ‘Who thought that Falcon and Black Panther and Ant-Man and now Spider-Man…?’ I mean it’s like wow, this thing is just crazy.” (Leave it to Captain America, however, to try and save the day by keeping the secret hidden: “You never know with Marvel,” Chris Evans says. “Sometimes they shoot things and then don’t use them.”)
So, yes: Spider-Man is in Civil War.
Tom Holland, the new Peter Parker, has already been hanging out with a fellow Avenger. The actor appears in In the Heart of the Sea alongside Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth.
