Spider-Man is not only the most anticipated Marvel character set to debut in CaptainAmerica: Civil War, he’s said to be the show-stealer in the movie! This was confirmed by film critics who were given access to an early screening of Civil War last week.
Nearly everyone who tweeted about their early reactions to the film were dumbfounded and were in awe of the latest superhero movie offering from Marvel Studios. Among the superheroes in the film, and there are a number of them, it was Spider-Man who was the most talked about.
Some even hailed Tom Holland as the best Peter Parker/Spider-Man actor ever after only being a supporting character in the movie. It won’t be until 2017 when Holland makes his solo movie introduction which will feature a couple of Marvel superheroes for the first timedue to the Sony/Marvel deal last year.
Breaking down his screen time, Holland’s screen time will be divided into 10 minutes of Peter Parker and 20 minutes of Spider-Man. That’s a pretty good amount of Spidey time for us fans of the original Wall-Crawler!
The amazing Spider-Man was last seen in a Captain America: Civil War trailer about a month ago and since then we haven’t seen him in any other promo. Until now.
In case you missed him, you can find Spidey on the lower left hand side, in the airport scene where the heroes are rushing towards another.
