Sounds Like Iron Spider Armor For Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War



It's already been confirmed that Tom Holland will be seen in the classic red and blue Spider-Man costume in Captain America: Civil War, but now it looks like Holland may be sporting more than one Spidey costume.

Captain America: Civil War co-director Anthony Russo was asked about the rumor of multiple Spider-Man costumes in an interview and hinted at more than one costume (via Super Interssante):

SUPER: There are many rumors are talking about two, three uniforms in the film. What can you talk about it?

Anthony Russo: Well, we did a lot of research and experimented with the looks of each character. We went through the same process with Spider-Man. We knew it was going to be someone young and it was very important to us because we wanted to give this essence to the character, because he is someone unique to the Marvel Universe. Tom Holland is an amazing Spider-Man, people will love him. It was a very experimental process, placing him with the other actors, especially with Downey Jr., we had to learn as we worked. And we’re very happy with the final result.

Russo continues with mention of what looks to be a big hint that Tom Holland may wear the Iron Spider Armor costume that was used in the Civil War Marvel Comics comic book event as Russo says a costume that will be used will be produced by special effects.

 We’re still working on a few things, like the costume. He’s not ready yet because so much will be produced with special effects.

Anthony Russo is directly asked about the Iron Spider Armor, but only seemingly teases its existence in the film.

SUPER: Will the film show the red-and-gold costume that was made ​​famous in the Civil War comic?

AR: The film will show a mix of what everyone is waiting for with a little twist. So yeah, that’s all I can say.

With the use of numerous Spider-Man costumes in Captain America: Civil War, we can probably also safely speculate that Spider-Man may have a bigger role in the movie than the previously thought cameo.

Following Captain America: Civil War, Tom Holland will be featured in the standalone Spider-Man movie in 2017.

"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.
