It looks like we just need to dot the i and cross the t and this one is in the books. Asa Butterfield (Ender’s Game) is our front runner to play Peter Parker AKA Spider-man.
Spider-Man will make his Marvel Cinematic debut in Captain America: Civil War before Sony sends him into re-boot mode. Spider-Man plays a pivotal role in Marvels Civil War story line that was released during 2006-2007. During Civil War “at a press conference in Washington D.C., Iron Man gave a speech introducing Spider-Man to the podium. Spider-Man then talked about how over the past years, he had kept his identity a secret, then talked about the registration act and how it gave superheroes a choice: to continue the trend Captain America advocated and have people with powers completely unchecked, or that superheroes could go legitimate and earn back a little public interest. To demonstrate his support of the Act, Spider-Man unmasked himself and revealed to the world that he was Peter Parker.”
Will this come to play out in the film version or we will get something else? Well, we will just have to wait and see when Captain America: Civil War is released on May 6, 2016.
