A few weeks ago, most sites (us included) reported that Tom Holland had wrapped up his filming for [Captain America: Civil War](tag:994409) in Atlanta, indicating that his role would indeed be a smaller cameo, at least for this film. But shortly thereafter, rumors started to swirl that Spider-Man may have a bigger role in Civil War than we previously thought.

If the news today is any indication, it looks like that rumor may very well be true. As it turns out, Holland was finished his filming - on the Atlanta set. Because the young actor has turned up on the Berlin set of Civil War to continue filming.

Now, this, to me, this is very, very interesting. Why? Because we know that the post-credits scene in Ant-Man, where Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson find Bucky Barnes trapped by his arm, is set in Romania (which is what the Berlin is representing). We also know that this scene, as Kevin Feige explained, is an actual scene that happens about midway through Civil War.

So why is Spider-Man there? We've already seen Cap and the rest of his Civil War rebels show up on set: Anthony Mackie as Falcon, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, even our first glimpse of Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, and, of course, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes. It's all Cap's team and none of Tony's.

All of which leads me to believe that by this point in the film, Spider-Man has completed his defection from Iron Man's pro-registration side to that of Captain America's anti-registration rebellion.

What do you think? I'd like to hear your thoughts in the comments.
