A new set of Captain America: Civil War hoodies, hats, and t-shirts debuted on Merchoid.com today, adding to the already announced Captain America hoodie. There are obvious "Team Cap" and "Team Stark" (though it's a little weird to refer to one by code name and one by last name) t-shirts, some split-head apparel with half of each character, and some Cap's shield leggings.
There's also another listing, though, for "Spider-Man: Premium Hoodie" (though they forgot the hyphen - it's cool, we fixed it, guys). The hoodie itself isn't much of a surprise, as we know that Spidey is coming in the film.
In the full description for the individual item, though, they may have revealed when some kind of first look for Spider-Man's appearance in Civil War is coming, as they say they'll be able to show it on January 15, 2016.
"Ok, so here’s the deal: we have photos of the Spider-man hoodie coming very soon. We really, REALLY want to show it to you now, but we’re not allowed to just yet. Make sure you check back on the 15th January for your very first look!"
So why January 15th? Well, that's a mystery. There are no major sporting events that day, next Friday. There are no awards shows, and Disney or their distribution arm, Buena Vista, have no movies out that day. The only tiny Disney connection we can make is that it's the first Friday in five weeks that other films are allowed to screen in U.S. IMAX theaters, where Star Wars: The Force Awakens has had the monopoly through this weekend. A Captain America: Civil War trailer, which debuted before the film came out, has shown before those IMAX screenings. It is also the weekly release day of Entertainment Weekly, so perhaps they have a first look raring to go.
So are we getting a new trailer? Just an image? Some kind of special first look? We don't know yet, but we'll certainly, at the very least, be refreshing Merchoid for a look at what they have to offer next week.
