The highly anticipated Captain America: Civil War is basically a Punnett Square of the greatest on-screen Marvel heroes – offering a chance to see how each and every member of the MCU interacts with one another. We already know that plenty of character moments will be shared between Tony Stark and Steve Rogers, but what about the other heroes? Luckily, there won’t be any shortage of awesome moments for the titular, star-spangled Avenger to cross paths with other Marvel characters. Chris Evans recently revealed that Cap and Spider-Man would share a particularly awesome moment during the events of Civil War.
Speaking with Heroic Hollywood, Chris Evans opened up about Captain America’s brief but poignant scene with Spider-Man during the events of Captain America: Civil War:
Well, I don’t want to give too much away… but it’s brief. I really love the scene we have together, it’s a little brief, a little wink, a little nod. It’s nice and I think Tom is phenomenal.
It doesn’t give us much to go on, but it seems to promise that Cap and Spidey will have an amazing moment together on screen. Now all we have to do is speculate as to the nature of the scene. Considering the fact that Spider-Man very clearly spends at least a portion of the movie on Team Iron Man, it seems increasingly likely that he might end up going toe-to-toe with Captain America during the much talked about "airport sequence." Steve has proven himself to be an agile fighter in recent Marvel movies, but he may have met his match when he goes up against someone who has a Spider Sense.
However, it remains entirely plausible that Chris Evans is talking about a different type of scene altogether. Captain America and Spider-Man have a long history together in the comics, and it seems likely that Civil War could explore the origins of that friendship. Over the years we have seen numerous comic book panels showcasing Steve Rogers’ mentorship of a young Peter Parker. If Spider-Man decides to defect from Team Iron Man, like he does in Mark Millar’s Civil War arc, we could potentially get a moment where Cap tutors the wall crawler on the importance of being a hero, and doing the right thing. If the movie doesn’t retread Spider-Man’s origin, Marvel could even attribute "with great power comes great responsibility" to Steve instead of Uncle Ben.
Only time will tell how these two iconic heroes interact with one another when they finally meet. No matter what happens, Civil War is shaping up to be a wholly unique cinematic experience.
