During the Super Bowl on February 7th, Marvel released a 30-second TV spot for Captain America: Civil War. The spot can be seen below:
The trailer shows clear evidence that Spider-Man is on team....
Team Captain America Has An Extra Member
The trailer shows that Team Captain America has six members: Captain America, Bucky, Scarlet Witch, Ant-Man, Falcon, and Hawkeye. On the other hand, Team Iron Man only has five members: Iron Man, Black Panther, Vision, Black Widow, and War Machine. All of them are lined up with the person they are fighting in the concept art.
So, Spider-Man should be in between Iron Man and Black Widow. That's is why the teams are unbalanced. Let's take a look at the match-ups and see why they are paired up:
Iron Man vs. Captain America: They are the leaders of each team
Vision vs. Scarlet Witch: The most powerful member
War Machine vs. Falcon: Team Leader's sidekick
Black Panther vs. Bucky: They are similar to their leader, but also powerful
Black Widow vs. Ant-Man: Less powerful members of each team. Ant-man is powerful, but he has had one movie in which he's actually in the suit. He hasn't had time to develop his abilities yet.
Hawkeye vs. ??????: It has to be Spider-Man
Spider-Man Is The Vision of 'Civil War'
The Vision was introduced in Age of Ultron but was hardly seen in the trailers. He was in the final group shot in the movie, but was removed for the trailer because Marvel wanted to keep him as a surprise. For example...
That is why Spider-Man was edited out of the team shot in the newest trailer and that's why Hawkeye isn't fighting anyone in the concept art. Spider-Man will be saved for one of the last trailers or the actual movie itself. Spider-Man is on Team Iron Man, but he is being kept a surprise until the movie is released.
