When it comes to Spider-Man's presence in Joe and Anthony Russo's Captain America: Civil War, pretty much all we can really say is that he's in the movie. Marvel Studios has been working hard to keep all details of the characters' appearance under-wraps, and the reality is that we have no idea exactly what he will be up to in the film. At the very least what we can say now is that there will be a scene that's set in the bedroom of Peter Parker.
This is a pretty odd story, but a local NBC news station in Atlanta has published an article about the abundance of prop workshops popping up all over the Georgia city, and in the piece it's mentioned that one company in particular is providing the furniture that was being used for Peter Parker's bedroom during the production of Captain America: Civil War. The set dressing was only mentioned briefly in a long list of other props for other movies that the particular warehouse stored, but a photo featured on the site shows a desk and chair from the film (amazing stuff, I know).
Ever since Tom Holland was officially given the role of Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there has been a great deal of speculation regarding not only how much of the webslinger we would see in Captain America: Civil War, but also how the screentime would split between Holland being Peter Parker and his superhero secret identity. We always expected that the character would show up in the film in full costume, but this is interesting confirmation that we will see him in his normal nerdy form.
So what exactly could we see from a Captain America: Civil War scene set in Peter Parker's bedroom? Maybe it's a down moment in the story where we see certain superheroes return to their normal lives and take off their masks. Perhaps Nick Fury will end up there on a special recruiting mission. Hell, maybe Ant-Man ends up in there for a fight scene because he enjoys fighting with bad guys in kids' bedrooms. The reality is that there's an endless number of potential scenarios, though some are better than others.
Captain America: Civil War is currently filming in Germany, and is actually now in its last week of production. After that, the movie will spend months getting worked on in the editing room, until it's ready to burst out like a butterfly on May 6, 2016. After the D23 Expo footage we saw this past weekend, we're more excited than ever for the movie, and the more we hear about Spider-Man's role in the film only helps as well.
