Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield have already played the character onscreen at some point in the last ten years, but now a brand-new Peter Parker – in the form of Tom Holland – is set to debut on the big screen. Garfield himself has already voiced his approval for Holland, and Marvel Studios must be pleased with the casting choice, seeing as Spider-Man’s role in Captain America: Civil War appears to be larger than originally expected.
Initially, it was believed that Peter Parker’s alter-ego would make only a brief appearance in Civil War, establishing his existence in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and setting the stage for the 2017 Spider-Man solo movie reboot. However, it’s starting to sound more and more like he will be among the most prominent faces when Civil War erupts in the MCU.
A new report, courtesy of NBC affiliate 11 Alive in Atlanta, provides further proof that fans will see more of Peter Parker’s story than expected. The story focused on the growing trend of prop-making companies opening their doors throughout the city and, amid a list of projects being worked on locally, casually name-dropped that one company is providing “Peter Parker’s bedroom furniture from Captain America: Civil War.” No context was given for the scene in which the props would appear.
This news certainly matches reports that Holland was out in Germany with the rest of the Avengers to film additional scenes for Civil War. Still, it begs the obvious question of exactly how a scene in Peter’s house would fit into the scope (and massive cast list) of the game-changing storyline. At this point, there could be any number of reasons why we see Peter at home.
Perhaps he sees news coverage of the disaster that kicks off the whole Captain America/Iron Man debate over superhero accountability and feels compelled to throw his support behind one side of the struggle. Considering that plot details are still pretty vague, it’s difficult to say, but don’t expect to get much more than a glimpse of Peter’s secret identity (and, just maybe, a chance to meet the new Aunt May).
