In just 10 short days, Marvel kicks off its Phase 3 lineup with the massive Captain America: Civil War, which not only fractures the MCU as we know it, but also introduces two new highly-anticipated superheroes. This big-screen adventure gives us our first look at Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who will both star in their own stand alone adventures hitting theaters over the next few years. To celebrate the 10-day countdown, Marvel has unveiled a new TV spot, which features never-before-seen footage of Spider-Man in action.
We got our first glimpse of Spider-Man in the second trailer for Captain America: Civil War that surfaced last month, where we learned that the young Spidey is fighting for Team Iron Man. The studio also debuted footage at CinemaCon that had Peter Parker coming home, only to find Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) in his living room with Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), to discuss a "grant" opportunity for Peter. This latest TV spot, courtesy of the Captain America Twitter page, includes a scene we haven't seen before, during the big 'splash page' airport fight, where Spidey swings into action to take down Falcon, before he must fight The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). Although Parker can't help but comment on how "awesome" Bucky's metal arm is.
Steve Rogers leads a newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity in Captain America: Civil War, which is set in the aftermath of Avengers: Age of Ultron. 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.
This adventure splits the Marvel universe in half, with heroes joining forces with either Captain America or Iron Man. Team Iron Man includes Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Vision (Paul Bettany), War Machine (Don Cheadle) and the new characters T'challa (Chadwick Boseman) and Spider-Man (Tom Holland). 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). Captain America: Civil War also stars Frank Grillo as Crossbones and William Hurt, reprising his role from The Incredible Hulk as Thaddeus Ross.
Anthony Russo and Joe Russo direct Marvel's Civil War from a script by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. The writers and directors will team up again later this year when production starts on the massive Avengers: Infinity War Part I and Avengers: Infinity War Part II, which are set for release in 2018 and 2019, respectively. Tom Holland will also likely start production on his new movie, Spider-Man: Homecoming later this year, which has been given a July 7, 2017 release date. While we wait for more details on Spider-Man: Homecoming, check out this new TV spot below.
