There’s a little over a week until Captain America: Civil War hits theaters nationwide, which means it’s almost time for fans to be introduced to the latest iteration of Spider-Man.
Before then, though, Marvel is whetting fans’ appetites with fresh Spidey footage in a new TV spot for Civil War. Here, the wall-crawler is in direct combat with Bucky Barnes, a.k.a. The Winter Soldier, which makes for a pretty difficult first test.
Despite being a short, 30-second teaser, the new Spidey’s youth shines through. “You have a metal arm?!” he exclaims as he stops a brutal looking punch with a single hand, showing off some of his own impressive strength.
After Marvel announced that Spider-Man will be folded into the MCU, rumors swirled that the rebooted character would be fast-tracked into the upcoming Marvel films. Given the speed with which Spider-Man was put into Civil War, some wondered how big a role he would play in the upcoming film. Thanks to the recent trailers, it seems like Civil War will not be wasting Spidey’s first Marvel appearance.
