This week, a brilliant new trailer was released for Captain America: Civil War, and it gave audiences their first glimpse of an exciting and much-anticipated addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe – Spider-Man.
Tom Holland will portray the character in the franchise and, from the brief look we’ve had of him so far, he looks and sounds great.
In the trailer, Tony Stark has had enough of Captain America, and calls Spidey in for backup. At that point, the web-slinger appears, snatches Cap’s shield from his grasp, acrobatically lands nearby, and shyly greets all of the heroes present, “Hey, everyone.”
His new suit is clearly influenced by technology, and it does look as though the CGI isn’t quite finished. But the signs are good and we’re all hoping he makes a decent impact in the movie.
With that in mind, here are ten fun things we’d like Tom Holland’s Spider-Man to do in Captain America: Civil War.
Act like a spoiled brat at home
Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will be the youngest big screen Spider-Man to date. Although Holland himself is nineteen years of age, his Peter Parker will be just fifteen – an ordinary fifteen-year-old boy who had only recently developed super-powers after being bitten by a radioactive spider.
The key words there, however, are “ordinary fifteen-year-old-boy”. We want to see him acting as such, because it’s a funny juxtaposition to the responsible superhero exploits he will be taking part in during the conflict of Captain America: Civil War and in future movies.
Hopefully, we’ll get to see him being a normal, twisty, whiny teenager in his home setting – as this would also make a refreshing change to the typical Marvel Cinematic Universe superheroes we’ve seen to date.
And now for some action.
