Aside from those lucky enough to have seen the early screenings, we really don’t know much of what Spider-Man will be doing yet in ‘Captain America: Civil War‘ but thanks to one of the early viewers, we’ve learned about how long he’ll be in the film.
In all actuality, he has a decent amount of screen time which hints that he’ll have a pretty significant role. This shouldn’t at all be surprising with how important he was in the comic form of this storyline and it being the ultimate nod to Marvel’s influence in movies now that Sony has teamed up with the newly crowned media giant, it should also have been no surprise that we’ll be getting plenty of Peter Parker. Also with the fact that we’ve recently gotten confirmation that characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe would be appearing in the stand alone ‘Spider-Man’ movie ,it seems that we would need some decent groundwork for that laid here as well.
So exactly how much will we be seeing The Wallcrawler you might be wondering? I wouldn’t quite call this a spoiler as no specifics are mentioned but this is your last chance to head back. Honestly I was happy to read this tidbit and not worried that it would take away from my movie going experience next month.
@MarvelousRealm That’s about right. Maybe 10 mins of Parker, a good 20 mins of Spidey.

Roughly half an hour of screen time is nothing to scoff at with how many of The Avengers are planned on being included in the film. That isn’t saying he’ll be front and center for that half an hour but he will definitely have an impact.
Are you happy to hear how much we’ll be seeing of the newly introduced Spider-Man in ‘Captain America: Civil War’? Do you feel that he will be pivotal to the film or is he just being included to kickoff his own new series? Share your thoughts below True Believers!
