Spider-Man's introduction to the MCU can be summed up with one word, "Underoos." That, however, is not the case around the world.
Making changes to a film that caters to a specific region is not uncommon, and it was no different for Marvel's Captain America: Civil War. One fan-favorite scene involves Tony Stark calling Spider-Man by yelling "Underoos." The only problem is that Underoos are a relatively US-based brand, so the term needed to be changed for other international markets.
Reddit user NaNowhyMo compiled a list of all the different phrases used around the world (via ScreenRant), and the results are fantastic. You can view the whole list below.
- English: “Underoos”= Underoos
- Portuguese: “Novato” = New Guy
- French: “Collants” = Leggings
- Italian: “Bimbo Ragno” = Spider-Baby
- Latin America: “Oye Nino” = Hey Kid
- Polish: “Siusiumajtek” = Bed wetter
- Russian: “паучок (
paoochok)” = Little Spider
- Brazillian: “Pirralho” = Brat
- Turkish: “Pijamalı Çocuk” = Kid with the Pyjamas
- German: “
jetztKleiner” = Now little guy
- Hindi: “Chhote Ustad” = Little master
- Swedish: “
pyjamas pojken” = Pyjama boy
- Hungarian: “Rugdalózós” = Onesie
- Korean: “JolJori” = Skin-tight leotards
Terms like "Onesie," "Kid with the Pyjamas," "Bedwetter," and "Spider-Baby" are comedy gold, while "Little Spider" is probably the most compassionate. "Leggings"
A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
