Spider-Man’s debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is only of the most eagerly awaited cinematic events of 2016. Peter Parker will make his first appearance in Captain America: Civil War, which will see Captain America and Iron Man forming their own factions thanks to a hotly disputed issue. And now we reportedly know which side Spider-Man is going to be on during this quarrel.
Obviously there is a huge potential SPOILER ahead. So those of you who don’t want Captain America: Civil War to maybe be ruined probably shouldn’t read ahead.
Have they gone? Good. That’s because it’s now been alleged that Spider-Man will be on Iron Man’s side during this quarrel. Heroic Hollywood were the first to report that Tom Holland’s debut as Spider-Man will see him dueling with Chris Evans’ Captain America in a crucial scene.
The website alleged that one of their sources in Berlin, Germany, where the hugely anticipated blockbuster is currently filming, has spotted Tom Holland shooting scenes as Spider-Man while fighting Steve Rogers. No further details have been revealed regarding their bout.
There is every chance that this rumor could turn out to be true. That’s because in the Captain America: Civil War comic book series Spider-Man and Captain America do have a fight after Peter Parker decides to side with Tony Stark/Iron Man.
Once again, I must give you another SPOILER warning, because I am about to divulge further details regarding the antics in the Captain America: Civil War comic book series.
Even though Spider-Man starts out by being on Iron Man’s side, he later decides to join up with Captain America’s team. However, at this point, we’re still not sure how loyal Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely’s script for Captain America: Civil War is to its source material.
Plus, with so many superheroes to juggle, the creative team behind Captain America: Civil War, which is being directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, might decide to take the characters in different directions to that of the comic, so it fits in line with Marvel’s plans for their burgeoning cinematic universe.
As well as Chris Evans’ Captain America, Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, and Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, they also need to find room for Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, Sebastian Stan’s Winter Solider, Anthony Mackie’s Falcon, Don Cheadle’s War Machine, Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther, Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlett Witch, Paul Bettany’s Vision, Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man, and, probably, Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk.
We’ll see which side these characters align with when Captain America: Civil War is finally released on May 6, 2016.
