Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever a spider can~
The long wait is over for Marvel fans who have been anxiously waiting for Spider-Man’s appearance just to confirm if Spidey will be having a part in the superhero clash in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War movie this May.
In the second official trailer, which lasts for two minutes and 24 seconds, the cast got their own cameos, hinting at igniting conflict between the teams led by Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) and Captain America (Chris Evans).
Marvel released the first trailer in November 2015, followed by a 30-second Super Bowl teaser in February this year. Now that the division between the characters have become clear with Captain Steve Rogers backed up by the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), The Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and Ant-Man (Paul Rudd). The remaining characters – Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), War Machine (Don Cheadle), and The Vision (Paul Bettany) – are on on Tony Stark’s team. One more slot is left open in Team Stark to make it an equal fight.
Based on the trailer, it seems that Spider-Man will be siding with Team Stark as he was summoned by Iron Man himself towards the end of the clip. Do take note of that new suit which is entirely different from the Spider-Man movies we got used to (starring Tobey Maguire and then Andrew Garfield). The new outfit is a Silver Age-inspired costume which has a smooth and toned-down look. It looks awesome, especially in that eye-squinting part!
Let’s break down the scenes leading to his first appearance:
Tom Holland will be playing the friendly neighborhood hero this time. (Yes, he’s the lead guy in the Billy Elliot Musical if ever you’re wondering.)
As the trailer was dropped by Marvel Entertainment late night on Thursday (March 10, 2016), the YouTube video has instantly garnered over 5million views in less than 12 hours.
Here are other notable things from the latest trailer:
That shot with Ant-Man jumping from Hawkeye’s arrow into Stark’s armor is definitely something to watch again and again.
Scarlet Witch is showing off her true powers versus The Vision! (They were a OTP in the comics, though.)
Black Widow is still as badass as ever.
War Machine’s down! I repeat, War Machine is down!
There’s an underwater structure that is yet to be fully revealed.
More explosions, destruction, and fistfights.
The next question would be: What will be the role of Spidey in the superhero conflict? The answer will be revealed in two months.
