Captain America: Civil War has a lot on its plate before you get to the part where it has to adequately introduce Tom Holland’s new Spider-Man and it make it matter that he’s punching some of our favorite superheroes in the face. Sure, Spidey is getting his own solo movie in 2017, but you know what they say about first impressions. While we ponder how the movie will bring Peter Parker into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we can tear apart and reassemble a single scrap of news to keep ourselves occupied … and we now know just a little bit about one of Spider-Man’s action scenes.

This is the point where we have to say “Spoiler alert!” and so on. This is a fairly minor detail, but you know who you are.

According to Heroic Hollywood (who have showcased a more-than-solid track record on this kind of stuff), Tom Holland is in Germany right now filming a big action scene with Chris Evans. Yes, Spidey is going toe-to-toe with Captain America himself. Marvel Studios is going to introduce their new Spider-Man by letting him batter the main character of their next movie. That’s certainly a bold choice. Maybe they’ll call a truce and have a heart-to-heart on a rooftop somewhere. After all, Steve Rogers has a lot to teach young Peter Parker about life and superheroics and such.

We know from previous reports that Spider-Man will be on Tony Stark’s side in the titular “Civil War,” but we can’t help but wonder if there’s some misdirection going on. After all, the Civil War comic miniseries began with the webslinger joining Iron Man’s cause, only to defect to Cap’s corner for the final battle. Could a personal showdown with the star-spangled Avenger convince Spidey to have a change of heart? We don’t know the odds, but we’d put a couple bucks on this.

In case you’ve been living under a boulder, here’s the official synopsis for Captain America: Civil War:


Captain America: Civil War’s plot picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers 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.


Captain America: Civil War is about to wrap filming and will open on May 6, 2016.
