Captain America: Civil War would've been plenty exciting if it had just featured the characters who we already knew from Avengers: Age of Ultron, but Marvel Studios was not content to stop there. First, they added Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, a hero comics fans have been waiting years to see onscreen. Then came the icing on the cake: the first appearance of Spider-Man (Tom Holland) in a Marvel Studios film.
When Marvel announced that it would dropping the "final" trailer (outside of TV spots and other featurettes) for Civil War this week, the situation seemed pretty clear: If we didn't see Spidey in this trailer, then we probably weren't going to see him until the film was actually released. Well, we got him today. Check it out.
There's plenty of great new footage in here, including a better look at just how the divide between Tony and Cap starts, some great Black Panther fight scenes, and more development of exactly how much damage the Avengers have done over the years. I also love that it makes us wait right up until the very last moment to see Spider-Man. It's a perfect entrance, and Tom Holland's simple "Hey, everyone" feels very in-character to me.
Captain America: Civil War arrives May 6. What do you think of our new Spidey?
