It’s hard to believe that we’re just two short months away from seeing Captain America:Civil War. The thing I’m most excited about seeing in this movie is Tom Holland’s take on Spider-Man. Back in August, the actor posted a video on his instagram account which showed him practising some moves.
Yesterday, he posted a video of himself doing something called a “side summy” it’s pretty impressive.
We still haven’t seen the new Spider-Man costume, but I assume that’s because both Sony and Marvel are still ironing out the finer points in their contract.
I’m sure Holland will be great in the role, but personally I would have brought Andrew Garfield back. In my version, Peter Parker would now be in his late thirties, retired and married to Mary Jane. Something would have happened that made him put on the famous suit again, I would have then killed Peter Parker off. Given him a heroes send-off, he would have died saving The Avengers. I would have then introduced Miles Morales in the post credit scene and kicked off a new franchise, with a new Spidey.
I had long heard that Tom Holland was a highly skilled gymnast but I hadn’t actually seen any footage. Recently, he posted a video on his Instagram account so that we can see how he’s coming along. It is very, very impressive.
Holland’s Spider-Man will make his first appearance in Captain America: Civil War, which is released worldwide on the 6th of May, 2016.
Martin Freeman has joined the ever growing cast of Captain America:Civil War.
Kevin Feige said:
“From his roles as Bilbo Baggins and Doctor Watson to Tim in ‘The Office,’ Martin’s range from the dramatic to the comedic has consistently impressed us. We couldn’t be more honoured or excited to have such a talented actor join the Marvel Cinematic Universe”.
Captain America:Civil War is released worldwide in May 2016.

The Sony hack continues to reveal intriguing details about Marvel’s plans for Spider-Man. Recently, it was revealed that Marvel approached Sony about including the web-slinger in “Captain America: Civil War” and the two-part “Avengers: Infinity War.”
According to reports, Marvel wanted to launch a new Spider-Man series following his appearance in “Civil War.” Although the new films wouldn’t directly continue the “Civil War” plot, it would be clear that they existed in the same universe.
In the proposed storyline, Tony Stark recruits Spider-Man for the Avengers, and he joins them on a mission before returning to Sony for his own solo movie. After that, he would return to assist in the two-part “Avengers: Infinity War,” with Sony releasing a second Spider-Man movie in 2019.
While the idea of Spider-Man teaming up with the Avengers is exciting, some fans lament the loss of Andrew Garfield, who played the role in the previous two movies. He was the saving grace of those films. Regardless, it remains to be seen who will ultimately don the Spider-Man suit in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
