Looks like Spider-man will have a bigger role in Captain America: Civil War than expected

I’m not sure if you’re aware, but Spider-Man is coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I know, you’d almost never know it, but he is. To make it even more surprising, his first appearance is scheduled to be this year in Captain America: Civil War.

Horrible attempts at comedy aside, it is hard to believe that this is actually happening. If you had told me that this was going to happen two years ago, I would have laughed you out of the room, but here we are, a few months away from it actually happening. Up until this moment in time though, the film’s directors, The Russo Brothers, have not made us aware what Spider-Man’s role in the film will be.

However, in a recent interview, Joe Russo finally lifted the curtain. During this interview, he stated that: “Spider-Man enters the movie after the Avengers sort of pick sides. He’s doesn’t have a huge investment politically, but he develops a very personal relationship while he picks his side. I won’t talk about the personal relationship he develops, but it’s very interesting. One of the most special parts of the movie”.

I have to say, I have always assumed that Spider-Man’s role in this film would be minor at best. I expected it to be little more than an extended cameo. However, this seems to imply that his role in the film will be somewhat larger than I had initially expected. All in all, this seems like an intriguing web the film makers are building… I really need to work on my puns.

My name is James and I am a long time fan of Movies, TV and Comics. I am currently a student, wrapping up my education at Aberystwyth University. I have an undergraduate degree in film and television and I’m working on my Masters in scriptwriting. My personal favourite comic character is the Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), and I view the film adaptation as one of the most horrifying experiences I have had in a movie theatre. As far as film and television go, I am usually willing to give any genre a try, as long as the project is well executed.
