[Captain America: Civil War](tag:994409) is now only a few days away — at least for some of us fans here in the US. A lot of lucky people have already had the opportunity to check out the movie, either at an advanced press screening, or because it was released earlier in their countries. There are a lot of exciting characters that I am looking forward to seeing, but it is Spider-Man who has really caught my attention. My personal favorite superhero of all time is being incorporated into the MCU for the very first time and I cannot wait to see it!
has shown us a very little of Spider-Man in the trailers. We had our first glimpse at our favorite web-slinger at the end of the second official trailer for [Captain America: Civil War](tag:994409). More recently, we have spotted him in two different TV spots. One TV spot showed Spidey swinging through a window and catching Winter Soldier's punch. The other TV spot is an extended scene of his first arrival at the airport battle.
It isn't just the trailers that Spider-Man has been absent from. Spider-Man has not been seen in any of the posters. In addition, we have not seen him in any toys. No LEGO sets, action figures, or bobble heads have featured Spider-Man, as Marvel has tried their best to hide him. Well, the first Captain America: Civil War action figure featuring that movie's likeness of Spider-Man has apparently been revealed.
It's pretty cool to finally begin to see Spider-Man included with merchandise. It makes sense to include him, as he's the action figure kids are going to want after seeing Captain America: Civil War. The action figure itself looks really awesome and I really like the web shooters. This Spider-Man action figure is listed as part of an 'exclusive' 8-pack of action figures, including Ant-Man, Captain America, Falcon, War Machine, Black Widow, Iron Man, and Black Panther. However, it is never made clear where this set of Marvel action figures is exclusive to. There is a similar 9-pack, which does not include Spider-Man, and is available at Wal-Mart stores and online. It is noted on the box that the Spider-Man figure is a 'special edition.'
