Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe was inevitable, and Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige always had a plan to fit Spidey right in Phase 3. When Marvel made their Phase 3 lineup films and dates, there was no deal made to put Spider-Man into the ever-growing Marvel Cinematic Universe. But as soon as the deal was made, Marvel made a slot for a new Spider-Man reboot for 2017 and is finally introducing him in this year's Captain America: Civil War.
After years of Spider-Man being apart from from Marvel Studios, a partnership between Sony and Marvel was made, and it was later announced that Marvel's new web shooter will first appear in a Marvel film before getting his own solo reboot in July 2017. Captain America: Civil War was later revealed to be the first Marvel film featuring the wall crawler and Tom Holland was cast shortly after. Since then no one got a chance to see Marvel's Spider-Man at all until a few days ago. Marvel has given little information on their version of Spider-Man.
Fans have wondered how Spider-Man will fit fit into the already packed superhero flick, but more rumors started to come up about scenes being shot of Spider-Man stunt doubles before Tom Holland was cast. Later after the first trailer for Civil War hit the web, rumors started to spread about Spider-Man appearing in the second trailer. At last the 2nd trailer is finally here, and Marvel has revealed Spider-Man's new look.
There were words flying around that Marvel may want to hold Spider-Man away from any trailers, but that doesn't matter anymore, Marvel finally unveiled Tom Holland's Peter Parker/Spider-Man and his new look. The suit doesn't look bad at all. and it looks like the suit has a Tony Stark upgrade as well, meaning this might be the second suit featured in the film. Tom Holland as Spider-Man will be a great addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It would have been best to reveal the superhero during the film to get the massive reaction from audiences in the theater. Only a month and a half away to finally see this new Spider-Man in action when the film hits theaters.
Captain America: Civil War opens in U.S. theaters on May 6, 2016. Spider-Man hits theaters on July 7, 2017
