Civil War is probably my all time favorite Marvel Comics crossover just due to reflection of real world issues like the Patriot Act played out by my favorite characters, so that fact alone has me stoked for this film. Throw in the fact that Marvel now has the film rights to Spider-man, and my second favorite fictional character of all time is set to make his MCU debut, and I could not be much more excited. Fans of Spidey and the MCU have waited for this day for along time, a day we thought we may never see, Spiderman in an MCU film, and today's brand new Civil War trailer brings us our first glimpse of that.
As a Spider-man fan I feel like I have been letdown cinematically ever since Sam Raimi's Spider-man 3 in May of 2007. Using the basis that Marvel has nailed the look, feel, and tone of almost every MCU hero I have incredibly high expectations for this character, fully expecting the best incarnation since Raimi's Spider-Man 2 in 2004. While the initial animation of this Spidey seems a bit off, I have high hopes that Tom Holland can take on the great power and responsibility that both Disney and Sony have trusted him with, and make up for any potential visual flaws. We will have our answer when Civil War releases May 6th!
