‘Captain America: Civil War’ Trailer Refuses to Stay Down

After several consecutive days with new poster releases and teasers, the newest theatrical trailer for Captain America: Civil War has been revealed, and yes, it has even more action and drama than the first. It may or may not feature the debut look at a certain beloved Marvel character too.

Pitting two halves of the Marvel Cinematic Universe against each other, Civil War might just be Marvel’s most ambitious project yet as well by having a majority of their major and minor characters factor into the story in some way, as Captain America and Iron Man battle for what they believe in. Even if that means hurting each other along the way.

Check out the new trailer below:

In addition to the new trailer as well, Marvel has also released a brand new poster for the film:

So of course, despite the entire trailer being fairly fantastic, the thing that everyone will be talking about (myself included) is its end tag, which gives us our first look at Tom Holland’s Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Clearly on Tony Stark’s side (in this specific moment at least), the webslinger appears by webbing Cap’s shield away from him, webbing his hands together, and flipping onto the hood of a nearby car.

And what are the first words we hear from this new Spider-Man? “Hey everyone.

It’s understated and simple, but sort of perfectly encapsulates what makes this iteration of the character so exciting – he’s just a high schooler with super powers, about to get in the ring with the professionals. There’s no way of knowing for sure what his overall role in the film’s story will be, but it looks like Civil War is going to give us a new, and possibly the most faithful adaptation of the beloved character yet.

And that suit? The eyes being able to change from big to small is a nice touch, and it is worth noting that this is the first time we’ve seen an onscreen version of the character with a small spider emblem on his costume. It’s familiar, and new at the same time. But then again, that’s the balance Marvel has successfully struck with all of their projects, and it’s nice to see it continued here.

Captain America: Civil War will be released on May 6th.
