Captain America Civil War: Spider-Man Missing In Trailer, But Will Play A Significant Role In Movie

By on

Where was Spider-Man during the Captain America Civil War trailer? Is the web-head only going to appear as a cameo or will he still have a significant role in the Captain America: Civil War movie?like in the comics? Fans have been asking these questions since Marvel publicly released the first trailer of the movie and Marvel has now provided more details on how Spidey will appear in the film.

Captain America Civil War: Large Role For Spidey?

According Captain America: Civil War director Anthony Russo, they have always planned to include Spidey in the movie, We Got This Covered reported.??From the second we had the idea to do the story of Civil War, Spider-Man was a part of the story. It was a very complicated business arrangement for Marvel Studios to be able to use Spider-Man from Sony,? Russo said. ?So, we were always told by Marvel ?Don?t count on it, you may not get to use Spider-Man, so you better have a plan B?.?

Despite this advice from Marvel, Russo?s team never bothered to make a plan B. ?But the truth is, we never had a plan B. We only envisioned the movie with Spider-Man. He was always a part of the story. It was very important to us to reintroduce the character.?

It is yet to be confirmed if Spidey will indeed have a large role to?fulfill?in the Captain America: Civil War movie. What we only know so far is that the web-head and Ant-Man will provide comic relief in this dark story about regulating heroes.

According to Russo, there will be some characters in the film who are not invested enough in the conflict, Cinemablend reported. ?There are certain characters that come into the story a little later who don?t have the same baggage that the Avengers have in terms of what?s going on in the film,? Russo said.

?So they don?t have as much darkness to deal with in the film, so they can be a little lighter and more fun? characters like Spider-Man and Ant-Man enter the story a little later.?

The Captain America Civil War movie will be released in theaters on May 6, 2016.
