Spider-Man is one the most popular and interesting superheroes. By now, he has gone through three different cinematic adaptations; the most memorable being the trilogy of films by Sam Raimi. After Marvel made a deal with Sony Pictures to use the character in their cinematic universe, Tom Holland (“The Impossible”) was cast to play Spidey in “Captain America: Civil War. The first look of Spider-Man in the movie was revealed in a trailer. Now, there are reports that the character will have around 30 minutes of screen-time in “Civil War.”
Spider-Man News reported via Comicbookmovie.com that Mike Sampson, editor-in-chief of ScreenCrush, was asked on Twitter about the run-time of the superhero in “Captain America: Civil War.” Samson said about 30 minutes of screen time will be dedicated to Tom Holland’s character, with 10 minutes for Peter Parker and an impressive 20 minutes for the wall-crawler.
As Screenrant rightly points out, half an hour of screen time is the perfect length for an introduction of the new Spider-Man into the Marvel cinematic universe. One suspects that the 10 minutes of Peter Parker will deal with his origin as Spider-Man, radioactive bite and all. This will likely happen early in the movie. The 20 minutes with the wall-crawler will most likely take place towards the inevitable big action-oriented climax of the film.
We have already been treated to footage of how Spider-Man snatches away Steve Rogers’ shield and takes team Iron Man’s side. Also, the trailer showed us how Spider-Man and Iron Man are connected by having some sort of Stark tech in the eyepieces of Spider-Man’s retro-looking suit: a lens that contracts and expands as per Parker’s vision requirements. However, apart from snatching Captain America’s shield, the degree of Spider-Man’s involvement in the core plot of the film remains unclear.
