Spider-Man! Spider-Man! Does whatever a spider can!
Last week, Marvel finally dropped its second Captain America: Civil War trailer and we all freaked out over Spider-Man's surprise debut. With his new, updated suit that seems to have a different sort of sheen, Spider-Man looked insanely badass.
Forbes sat down with directors Anthony and Joe Russo to clarify Spidey's place in the film. Joe says:
“We always intended to [reveal him that way]. He was my favorite character growing up, I still have my collection of comics in my closet so it was a dream come true for us to be able to have Spidey in the movie and interpret him as a character so we couldn’t be more excited and we wanted to share that with everybody else. … We thought it was a great way to reveal him. I think people are going to be happy with him in the movie, he’s got a very interesting role in it.”
“I’ll say this, part of the fun of Spider-Man is that this film is basically a war amongst the Avengers and Spidey does not have the baggage that all these other characters have. He enters the story after the conflict that is happening between the Avengers and that gives him a very unique place in the story.”
The two also clued us in on Avengers: Infinity War and explained that if we thought Civil War's massive conflict was monumental, Infinity War will have your head spinning with the gravity of the situation. Anthony explains:
“[There are] new characters that are going to appear in Avengers: Infinity War. It’s a big sprawling ambitious movie, it’s about as ambitious as movies get and it should be, and the title alone indicates that there will be an incredible scape and scope to it.”
But the biggest tidbit from the two regarding Civil War has to do with the credits. If you thought one post-credit scene was enough, get ready to watch THREE entire scenes. Joe says:
“We can’t say who is going to be in it but we can say that there certainly could be one, or two, maybe three. We can confirm that you should stay sat in your seats when the movie is done.”
Come May 6 you'll find me in the theater, my eyes glued to the screen as I watch some of my favorite superheroes duke it out. And those three post-credits scenes? That's going to be the cherry on top of the superhero sundae.
