Spider-Man’s inclusion in ‘Captain America: Civil War’ has been a major source of excitement for fans and with every day bringing us closer to the release comes more rumors. This time, the folks over at Geek.Com are claiming to have information on just how the web-slinger is brought into the fold. Possible spoilers ahead.
Most fans have assumed his arc would be akin to his comic book counterpart where he starts off on Iron Man’s side before finally switching sides to join Captain America. Geek.com’s sources claim that Peter Parker comes into the movie as a kid who “started becoming Spider-Man because he grew up and idolized Tony.” The source further claims that it is Tony who seeks out Peter who readily agrees to join him given that Tony is his idol (If rumors of Peter being 15 are true this is a possibility considering he would have been five years old when Iron Man came onto the scene and became a pop culture figure). To seal the deal, Tony then gives him an enhanced Spider suit.
As none of these rumors are confirmed, keep a grain of salt at hand while we wait to find out come April.
Captain America: Civil War is directed by Anthony & Joe Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
