Russo Brothers Tease Spider-Man(?) Surprise
Anthony and Joe Russo have recently launched their Facebook page.
A couple days ago saw the pair reveal a look at a new Captain America: Civil War scene, and now they tease something for later today.
"We'll be live with a little friend of ours tomorrow at 2:30pm PST," the Russo's posted last night on Facebook (meaning 5:30pm ET Friday, March 18th).
It's our guess the "little friend" may be new Spider-Man Tom Holland, as it's also our guess Marvel will be using Spider-Man to further promote Captain America: Civil War.
The Russo's did just talk in length about Spider-Man and mentioned that the kinks are now out of the Sony and Marvel deal, and that actually they would have liked to use Spider-Man previous to the reveal in the trailer.
Here's the blurb:
Also I think it was a little bit of a correction because it was a very complicated deal that Sony had to work out with Marvel Studios and Disney in order to make that work. We were very quiet about Spider-Man’s involvement in the movie for much longer than we would have been. We were artificially silent on the character because it was such a sensitive business deal still being worked out even while we were shooting. We went through a very thorough casting process, we tested Tom Holland vigorously with Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr,, we screen tested him along with several other actors, it was a very intense part of making Captain America: Civil War because he was an important part of the movie to us. Finally it’s all secure and we’re at a place where we can present him even in just a small taste.
If we're wrong about Spider-Man, our next guess is Ant-Man?
Update: One of our guesses was close. Watch the video:

The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
