Nobody missed the big bombshell Marvel dropped recently. A new Captain America: Civil War trailer has been released including a lot of new footage. Ant-Man riding one of Hawkeye's arrow, more insight into Steve and Tony's foe, but above all we got our first look at the new Spidey! In case you're a part of the irreducible few who haven't seen it, here's the trailer:
Now, let's talk about a more troublesome subject. While you would expect that Spider-Man's first appearance would be praised by fans, you're not even close. Actually, a bunch of people complained about Spidey's costume, using too much CGI for some people, and his voice, too cringeworthy for others. I'll let you be the judge:
While those arguments are perfectly relevant and receivable, it is too soon to say anything about Spider-Man. The preponderant role that the internet took these past few years created a real trend of easy criticism. Fans are now judging a movie, not by its content, but by the trailers they get to see, that is to say one or two minutes, sometimes even seconds. A movie like Batman v Superman has already been criticized when nobody actually saw the movie. Ultimately it is a disservice to both the movie and the audience.
Criticisms can be positive but they don't have the right to be as excessive as they can sometimes be. It's not the time to complain about a costume or a voice. When the movie is out, everybody will be able to formulate their own opinion but until then, let's just celebrate the fact that our favorite Web-Slinger finally joined the MCU and be happy with it.
If you're still not sold on Spidey's look, this Hi-res picture could cause you to change your mind:
