Once it was announced Spider-Man would make his MCU debut in Captain America: Civil War, fans began to ponder what his new costume might look like. Because the movie is loosely-based on and shares the same name as Mark Millar and Steven McNiven's 2006 comic book event, some speculated we might see him in his "Iron Spider" costume.
In the Civil War comics, Peter Parker initially supported Tony Stark's views on the Superhuman Registration Act and even joined Stark Industries as a scientist. As part of this newfound alliance, Tony helped Peter design a new costume, dubbed the "Iron Spider." Sporting Tony's preferred red and gold colors, the costume included all sorts of gadgets, repulsors, and even extendable extra "spider legs."
On Thursday, Marvel put all speculation to rest when they released the new trailer, and it provided the first look at Tom Holland's Spider-Man costume, a Silver Age-inspired design with a modern-spin.
Now a talented — and at this time anonymous (via Reddit) — fan has expertly edited the Civil War footage, so that Holland is donning the "Iron Spider" costume instead. Here's a look at what could have been...
In Captain America: Civil War, governments around the world hold Earth's Mightiest Heroes accountable for their actions, despite the amount of lives they've saved. Heroes divide as Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) butt heads, and fists, while fighting for what they believe in! Catch a glimpse of the action in front of and behind the camera above.
Captain America: Civil War will arrive in theaters on May 6, 2016.
