Captain America: Civil War Spider-Man Costume & Scene Description Lands Online



In addition to a possible first look at Spidey merchandise, a potential description for Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War lands online.

A redditor posted some Atlanta set images from Captain America: Civil War in which he states Spider-Man was in involved. The description appears to be from early filming as it's noted Tom Holland wasn't apparently cast, and they may have been using a placeholder costume.

We do see the scene may involve both Captain America and Falcon, and Iron Man even gets a mention.

Hello! I am the previously described friend.

To be more accurate, Spidey wasn't in the scene they were filming outside my place, but they were reviewing VFX work on a macbook pro after filming for the day.

I only knew they were VFX shots because the guys were doing things that were impossible to be filmed on the day (Cap throwing his shield at a full IronMan suit flying in the air, etc) and from my admittedly distant view, it looked photoreal and not an animatic.

After the action beats, there were several shots of Spidey sitting or standing on the edge of a building next to (I believe) Ironman and several other super heroes. He was visibly shorter than everyone which was a pretty cool look. You could really tell he was a kid. Overall the suit looked pretty similar to the Andrew Garfield Amazing Spiderman 2 outfit with the large comic-booky eyes, except this time they were extremely reflective. I've since read rumors about him having goggles, but from what I saw they were the same large spidey-shape we're used to, and there was no visible strap around his head. It makes sense that they could be reflective glass, though. (Basically chrome eyes - not white or matte silver.) The only reason why this stuck out to me was because Spidey's eyes were reflecting the setting sun.

But take all of this with a grain of salt as far as final designs go. At that time they had flown multiple actors out here for screen-tests, so no one had been locked down as Spider-Man yet. Plus with the other obvious-CG shots, I'm assuming the outfit I saw was fully CG, and could just be a placeholder. (Like I said, from what little I saw, it looked a lot like the 2nd Garfield Spider-Man movie, which admittedly is extremely close to the comic design.)

Anyway, as proof, here's two shots I took earlier in the day. 

The only thing really sticking out to me are those patches on the arms. I didn't catch that at all from what I saw. Basically the only takeaway I had at the time is that the general shapes were very much the Spidey we know. It wasn't the weird tapered swirly basketball crap from Amazing 1, nor was it a patched together costume a kid would make. The eye size was comparable to the last Andrew Garfield film, but were highly reflective like glass. All in all it just looked like a good Spider-Man....just one a good couple of inches shorter than the rest of the Avengers. I didn't see anything lower than his hips, I think, so I don't know if he had shoe soles or anything like that for his feet. Truthfully if my buddy didn't bring it up in this thread, I really wouldn't have chatted on the internet about it because there isn't a whole lot different about the overall design from what I could make out. It was just cool to see Spider-Man. :) 


Scene said to have filmed in this building in Atlanta:


"Captain America: Civil War" has  a May 6, 2016 release date directed by Anthony and Joe Russo starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Emily VanCamp, William Hurt, Martin Freeman and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther.


Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
