First Official Look at Marvel's Spider-Man

According to Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige, he and his inner circle always knew Spider-Man would be a part of Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Even though no deal had been made by the time they announced their Phase 3 schedule, they had still planned for Peter Parker to join the franchise.

Months later, when the partnership between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios became a reality, it was revealed that this new Spider-Man would first appear in a Marvel movie before getting his own solo film in 2017. That movie is Captain America: Civil War and somehow, until today, no one has seen this character. No leaked art. No leaked set photos. Nothing. Fans only know what Marvel has been willing to talk about, which has been very little.

We even visited the set of Captain America: Civil War and didn't see anything. The cast and crew wouldn't talk about Spider-Man so you could be forgiven for thinking maybe there wasn't enough time to fit the character into the story of Captain America 3.

"Hey everyone!"

But then came rumors. There were rumors Marvel was shooting scenes with Spider-Man stunt doubles before the character was even cast, just like there were rumors Marvel and Sony were working on a deal to share the character in the first place. All of this was true. So perhaps it shouldn't be a  surprise that rumors about the second Captain America: Civil War trailer revealing Spider-Man are true as well.

After all, we heard ourselves that an early version of this trailer would include Spider-Man, but that was alongside word that there was internal debate about that decision and that Marvel may hold him back. But who cares now? He's here. Marvel unveiled Tom Holland's Peter Parker and his new costume.

Does the costume meet your expectations? Is this a good introduction to Marvel's own take on their most important character?
