Captain America: Civil War's reviews are in and almost everyone is loving the film. The common standout amongst reviewers and others to catch the film early is, to no surprise, the debut of Marvel's Spider-Man as portrayed by Tom Holland.
"I just felt – as a filmmaker who had been part of establishing this universe – I thought that it was in really good hands with these guys and I was pleased," Favreau tells IGN of Civil War. "And as an audience member I was just smiling, and it's nice to smile your way through a film. The audience is in for a treat, and I didn't even see it finished so I'm sure it's gotten even better."
As for Spider-Man, Favreau loved him but he was also excited to see the growth in Tony Stark this time around.
"I think Spider-Man made me smile every second the character was on the screen," Favreau says. "I was so pleased with the tone of the film in general, but those sequences specifically, and I just loved the way they introduced the character. I love the version of Tony Stark I saw, especially in those scenes. As somebody who was part of the beginning of the screen persona of Tony Stark, I thought that this was really impressive and a wonderful expansion of that character."
