We know that Spider­Man will be making his first Marvel Cinematic Universe appearance in [Captain America: Civil War](tag:994409), but how exactly young Peter Parker gets embroiled in the conflict between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark remains a mystery.

Believes they have the answer to that question. Be warned, potential SPOILERS follow.

Our source told us is that Tony goes to Peter Parker specifically to recruit him, and to seal the deal, offers him an advanced Spider­suit 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 five­years­old 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?

Sounds reasonable enough, but nothing is for certain until the film is released.

Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

Check out the Captain America: Civil War trailer.

Iron man recruits Peter Parker since he was a fan of Iron man from a very young age. In fact, Peter was 5 years old when Tony Stark revealed himself as Iron man.
In the Russos we trust. Civil War will be the best superhero movie yet and I can't wait for what they will do with IW.

10 years since Iron-man? I would have figured around 5 at most. I thought it was only like 1 year from Iron-man to Avengers, 2 years which I know to be confirmed from Avengers and Captain America: the Winter Soldier, maybe a couple months from TWS to Avengers: Age of Ultron, and then real time 1 year from Avengers: Age of Ultron to Captain America: Civil War. 10 years seems a bit long. I can see the rest of the rumor fit but the time span seems much. It also kinda makes Tony somewhat responsible for endangerment of a minor depending how this goes, even if that minor already is fighting criminals and saving people on his own anyway, so hopefully they tread lightly.

I'm talking about in universe genius, not in real time. I think I remember seeing a chart a few years back that mapped the phase one movies by chronology, and Iron-man 2 was only 6 months after 1, Incredible Hulk happened during Iron-man 2 towards the latter half (Hulk was seen on the news during the scene at the campus at the end of IM2 in the background of a scene. Thor was some time after IM2 and TIH when Colson left for New Mexico to get Mjohnir, and Cap was found in the ice not long after Thor, so yes, it is entirely believable that Avengers happened approximately a year after Iron-man in universe. They didn't all happen in real time. The only ones said to do that are the Cap movies, 2 happening 2 years after Avengers and 3 going to be happening about real time after Age of aultron released.

Ten years is reasonable. I mean from an engineering perspective alone there are several constructs that would have taken several years by themselves. I'm thinking about Stark Tower and that fleet of super heli-carriers for instance. I mean a regular, non flying, carrier takes about 5-7 years to build. Not to mention that New York has rebuilt after that whole alien invasion thing.

I suppose you have a bit of a point about rebuilding. Although you also have to figure Daredevil and Jessica Jones into the equation as well. Hell's Kitchen wasn't very far along at all in Daredevil and people acted like Avengers just happened, and Jessica Jones happens approximately around the time of Daredevil given Claire Temple's role in the last episode or two of Jessica Jones. Daredevil had to only have been a few years removed from Avengers at most and that was around present day if I'm not mistaken, so parts of New York were definitely not completely rebuilt by Avengers: AOU if it and Daredevil/Jessica Jones happened witjin proximity tk each other. Good point about the time it takes to build helicarriers but maybe you could fudge that approximate time a little since SHIELD kinda had a bit of a technological advantage, not to mention the help of Iron-man to some degree, so maybe a few years to build all of Project: Insight.

Obviously I knew that. Anyone with sense would have got that

Yeah I've heard the Russos say something like that, but I was always under the impression that only applied for their movies in relation to the Avengers films. The relatively short phase 1 time line is definitely legit though. Who knows exactly how long between Avengers 1-2 though. You're right though, if it was all considered happening in real time it would have been about 8 years so it would still work. I forgot about Agents of SHIELD as well. I binge watched the first half of season 3 a week ago and there was a distinct reference to it being real time in 2015, and the shows had to have been pretty close to real time, so that's a good indicator it all could have been real time, although relatively so given sime movies and shows happej really close tighter (IM2/TIH, AOS/T:TDW/CA:TWS, Daredevil/Jessica Jones, etc.).

My most hyped movies of 2016: Captain America: Civil War, Deadpool, Doctor Strange, and then BVS.
