Over the weekend, Disney and Marvel lifted their social media embargo on Captain America: Civil War. And praise for Tom Holland as the new Spider-Man was unanimous. Critics love what the actor is doing with the character. Peter Parker gets about 30 minutes of screen time in this latest sequel, which is more than fans expected. And he'll spend about 20 minutes of that time in full Spidey costume. For the first time since his big reveal in the trailer, a new international TV spot has arrived that gives us a quick new look at this rebooted superhero. Though blink and you might miss him.
You'll have to look extremely close to spot Spider-Man in this international TV spot, which features music you might not typically associate with a Marvel superhero adventure. He is in only one shot, and he's accompanied by quite a few other characters. Peter Parker appears in his full costume at the 12-second mark in this latest footage. And he's on foot, not swinging through the air. He's on Team Iron Man in the wide group battle shot, as the two sides prepare for a massive head-on collision.
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), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). Marvel's Captain America: Civil War also stars Frank Grillo as Crossbones, William Hurt as Thaddeus Ross, Daniel Brühl as the villainous Baron Zemo and Tom Holland as Spider-Man.
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.
