Spider-Man Preview: First Footage of Tom Holland Fighting & Talking In 'Captain American: Civil War'

In just ten days, the new Marvel film “Captain America: Civil War” will be released into theaters. Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, the film will cover events one year after “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” when severe collateral damage caused by the Avengers team prompts politicians to impose a governing body that will hold superheroes accountable for their actions. This splits the Avengers team in two, with one side wanting to operate without regulation and the other supporting government oversight. Among the many superheroes in “Captain America: Civil War,” one is the appearance of an all-new Spider-Man played by Tom Holland. Watch a TV spot above that features the first footage of Holland fighting and talking as the masked arachnid-human hybrid.
