SPOILER ALERT: This article contains MAJOR SPOILERS for ‘Captain America: Civil War’. Proceed with caution!
“’Captain America: Civil War’ picks up where ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.”
The new Spider-Man, Tom Holland is currently in Germany filming his fight scene for ‘Captain America: Civil War’ the next chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Much speculation has been made over the extent of Spidey’s involvement in the new movie. The character played a central role in the comic book story of the same name, but this is still a ‘Captain America’ movie, so don’t expect the other heroes to horn in on his spotlight too much.
Even so, expect Holland’s wall-crawler to factor in much more than as a teaser or a post-credits cameo, as most assumed when it was first revealed that the character would make his Marvel Studios debut in this film before swinging back to Sony to kick off a new cycle of solo movies.
So who is Spider-Man exchanging blows with over in German? No, the Red Skull isn’t back. (At least not that we know of.) Considering that this is a super hero civil war, with teams divided between Iron Man and Cap, ol’ Web Head is going to have to choose a side.
Word from the set is that Peter Parker is facing off against…
… Captain America!
Since the movie will most likely deviate a great deal from the comic book story, there’s no way to predict what sets these two do-gooders against one another. But if the film does borrow from the source, in the original, Spidey starts off aligned with Tony Stark, who takes the boy genius under his wing and even gifts him an armored Spider-Suit to help him in his crime-fighting endeavors.
But as Stark’s actions become more extreme and risky– and after his loved ones, Aunt May and Mary-Jane Parker become the targets of his various nasty enemies after he publicly unmasks in a show of support for the Super Hero Registration Act– Spider-Man rushes to Cap’s side. And it ain’t pretty.
What do you think? Would you like the film’s story to follow the comic? Or would you rather see something completely original?
Are you eager to see the acrobatic Holland in action as Spider-Man alongside the established Marvel heroes?
