For many months, the worst kept secret in Hollywood was that Captain America: Civil War featured the new Spider-Man. He was never mentioned in press releases. He didn’t show up in the first trailer. Heck, the production somehow managed to keep the paparazzi at bay and not even one single blurry set photo made its way online. So when Tom Holland‘s Spidey popped up for quick hello in the latest preview, it was a genuine (and pleasant) surprise. Sure, everyone knew he was coming, but the grand reveal managed to arrive intact. Marvel and Disney played the long game with this one, distracting us with the dozen other heroes in the movie, and they came out on top.
But now that the cat is out of the bag, the marketing can play a little fast and loose with the Spider-Man material, which is why a brand new TV spot is apparently allowed to showcase additional footage of the webslinger in action.

Just this past week, Michael Keaton was said to be in early talks to potentially play the villain of the forthcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming. The film will be yet another reboot of the comic book franchise, but this time the new version of the webslinger is one who will be part of the Marvel cinematic universe. Tom Holland (In the Heart of the Sea) is playing Spider-Man, who we’ll see in Captain America: Civil War next month, and now he’s been given a couple more co-stars to join him in high school.

We’re still a few weeks away from the debut of Captain America: Civil War, but tonight brings screenings for fans in 25 major cities around the United States. That means you should probably start to get a little more leery about spoilers on social media, but the good news is that the early buzz has already indicated that the movie is pretty damn spectacular.
However, the cast of Captain America: Civil War is already starting their promotional tour, and they kicked things off with a takeover of Jimmy Kimmel Live this week. Team Captain America appeared on the show on Monday, the Doctor Strange trailer premiered there on Tuesday and last night Team Iron Man paid a visit to the show.
But before his team came out to speak with Jimmy Kimmel, it was just Robert Downey Jr. as the first guest, where he talked about his potential involvement in Spider-Man: Homecoming (which is the official title now) and the giant prop that he took from the set of The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Find out what he had to say about the possibility of Iron Man in Spider-Man Homecoming after the jump. Read More »
Last summer, it was announced Tom Holland had secured the role of Spider-Man. At the time, we already knew the character would appear in Captain America: Civil War, a role that was highlighted in the last trailer for the film. While it would’ve been more fun to experience the character on the big screen for the first time, it was an understandable decision on Marvel and Disney’s part to promote Spidey’s involvement.
Fans of Spider-Man will most likely be pleased with his role in Civil War, which shows the character at his youngest and nerdiest. Below, Marvel’s Kevin Feige discusses the new Spider-Man, the experience of casting Tom Holland, and collaborating with Sony.

UPDATE: At CinemaCon, Tom Holland confirmed that the title of the upcoming Spider-Man solo movie would be Spider-Man: Homecoming, adding that “it really is a homecoming” for the character. Sony’s Tom Rothman said the title was “obviously” a high school reference, so it seems to fit with the John Hughes vibe we’ve heard about before. Holland says that throughout the story Peter Parker is really trying to find where he belongs. Check out the logo below:
