Spider-Man's Costume In Captain America: Civil War Requires Special Effects


Captain America: Civil War co-director Anthony Russo chatted with a Brazilian entertainment website while attending Comic-Con Experience 2015 (CCXP) and he provided some details regarding the Spider-Man costume that Tom Holland (In the Heart of the Sea) will be wearing in the film.

Keep in mind, Russo's responses were published in Portuguese and have been translated to English.

The site, Super Interessante, began by mentioning the rumors of multiple Spider-Man costumes in Captain America: Civil War and wondered what Russo could say on the matter. "Well, we researched a lot and do a lot of experiments for all the characters. We did the same with Spider-Man," Russo offered. "We knew it had to be someone young, it was very important because we wanted to give this essence to the character, it is something unique in the Marvel Universe. Tom Holland is an amazing Spider-Man, people will love it. It was a very experimental process, placing it with other actors, especially with Downey Jr., we were learning as we did and are very happy with the result. But we are still working on some things, like the uniform. He's not ready because so much will be produced with special effects."

Civil War is loosely-based on Mark Millar's comic book mini-series. The Russo brothers had to change things up quite a bit but wanted to capture the essence of Millar's work. One small element from that story arc is that Tony Stark provides Peter Parker with a red-and-gold Spider-Man costume. Will we see a version of it in the film? "The film will show a mix of what everyone is waiting for and a little twist," Russo said. "So yeah, that's what I can tell."

Marvel's Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark's surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel's Captain America: Civil War opens in U.S. theaters on May.


Tom Holland's Spider-Man/Peter Parker will debut in Captain America: Civil War, which will arrive on May 6, 2016. He'll then star in the Jon Watts-directed solo Spider-Man movie to be released on July 28, 2017.
