What If was a Marvel comic book series that explored how different aspects of this superhero universe might unfold had one key element been changed of if history had been rewritten. We're getting a taste of that same idea today, as one enterprising fan has changed out Spider-Man in the Captain America: Civil War trailer with fan-favorite Miles Morales. And as expected, he looks pretty cool.
We're not sure if we'll ever see half-black/half-Latino Miles Morlaes on the big screen. Spider-Man reboot director Jon Watts has hinted that he may show up in the 2017 standalone movie. This next adventure for the wall-crawler brings Peter Parker back to high school, and will feature a diverse secondary cast. In the comics, Miles took over for Peter as Spider-Man. But as Tom Holland is new to the MCU, we doubt that will happen for quite some time.
But it's still fun to imagine what that might look like. Thanks to Twitter's @uk_resistantl, we get to see what Miles Morales spring to life. Is it better than what we actually got in the trailer? Maybe, maybe not. But there have been quite a few complaints that the new Web-slinger looks too CGI. Perhaps the VFX needed to bring Spidey to life aren't finished yet? As far as Miles Morales replacing Peter Parker in Captain America: Civil War? We doubt it would have had any affect on the overall story.
Marvel's Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps-one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark's surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
Team Iron Man includes Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Vision (Paul Bettany), War Machine (Don Cheadle) and the new character T'challa (Chadwick Boseman), who will make his debut in this movie before starring in Black Panther, set for release on February 16, 2018. Team Cap includes Captain America (Chris Evans), The Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). Marvel's Captain America: Civil War also stars Frank Grillo as Crossbones, William Hurt as Thaddeus Ross and Daniel Brühl as the villainous Baron Zemo.
Anthony Russo & Joe Russo are directing with Kevin Feige producing. Louis D'Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Nate Moore and Stan Lee are the executive producers. The screenplay is by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel's Captain America: Civil War opens in U.S. theaters on May 6, 2016.
