There are some potentially big spoilers ahead for Captain America: Civil War. Stop reading now if you don’t want to know anything about the film ahead of time. Don’t say you weren’t warned!
Seriously…possible SPOILERS. We’re really gonna say them…
Captain America: Civil War is shaping up to be Marvel’s biggest movie yet, with more superheroes than any of the Avengers films and the much-anticipated Marvel Cinematic Universe debut of Spider-Man, as portrayed by Tom Holland. According to Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige, the MCU’s Spider-Man is already active and he was even alluded to in the closing scene of Ant-Man.
A new report on Geek.com claims to have details regarding Spider-Man’s first appearance in Captain America: Civil War.
“Our source told us is that Tony goes to Peter Parker specifically to recruit him, and to seal the deal, offers him an advanced Spider-suit to fight in — an upgrade from whatever 15-year-old Peter was previously slinging around in. But why would Peter even consider such an offer? ‘Peter started becoming Spidey because he grew up and idolized Tony,’ our source revealed. Since Iron Man takes place 10 years before we meet Peter in Civil War, where Peter is 15, that means Peter was five-years-old when Tony broke onto the scene in the original Iron Man, likely dominating the news as Peter grew into a teenager. If the guy you admire and look up to suddenly shows up on your balcony with a sweet piece of tech and says, ‘hey, let’s be bros,’ are you going to turn him down?”
That report included some conjecture that Tony Stark has been monitoring Spider-Man’s activity since he first became a superhero.
It’s an interesting theory and rumor, which is far from confirmed. In Marvel’s original Civil War miniseries, Spider-Man was an adult, but he did admire Iron Man and receive an upgraded costume (dubbed the Iron Spider) shortly before he sided with Tony Stark over Captain America.
Captain America: Civil War hits theaters on May 6.
