“That is AWESOME dude!”
Spider-Man has been noticeabely absent from the marketing of Captain America: Civil War. Aside from the brief introduction in its second trailer, Spider-Man’s presence has been next to none. Well, that changed today with a new TV Spot for the film. Check it out:
While it is brief, I loved it. I love the way he expressed genuine excitement at Bucky’s metal arm. It really emphasizes that Spider-Man is just a kid next to the rest of these heroes, and does a good job of showcasing his enthusiasm. Tom Holland’s delivery of the line was great. From what little we’ve seen, the characterization of Spider-Man seems to be spot on.
The spot also did a good job at showcasing his abilities. Spider-Man zipping through the window and kicking Falcon was a classic Spider-Man move, and stopping Bucky’s super-soldier enhanced punch effortlessly gave us an idea of how strong he is. All in all, I’mg glad we got this little bit of Spidey. It’s only increasing my excitement to see his full role in Civil War.
Captain America: Civil War hits theaters May 6th.
