Spider-Man vs Captain America?
There's already a Batman vs Superman movie being made, so why not a Spider-Man vs Captain America? Well, it's unlikely that we'll see a standalone movie depicting these two hard-hitting superheroes going at it anytime soon, but new details suggest that it may happen in an upcoming Marvel movie.
According to an article published by Heroic Hollywood, Spider-Man and Captain America are going to butt heads in the Captain America: Civil War, the third installment centering around Steve Rodgers. The author didn't provide any specifics regarding why these two beloved Marvel superheros are duking it out, but Heroic Hollywood has a pretty solid track record of providing accurate information.
"I don't have exact details or specifics just YET but expect a major showdown between these two [Spider-Man and Captain America]. Hot tidit nonetheless. Makes you wonder how these two are gonna throw down," wrote Umberto Gonzalez of Heroic Hollywood.
As most Marvel fans already know, Civil War is scheduled to hit theaters next year in May. It's important to note, however, that the Spider-Man reboot project will be released just one year after Civil War in 2017. So, it's safe to assume that Marvel will be using Civil War as a platform on which to present English actor Tom Holland as Spider-Man for the first time. Reports indicate that Holland and Chris Evans are currently in Germany filing parts of Civil War. While we haven't seen any set photos, several reports indicate that the two actors are filming various scenes for Civil War, including some superhero-on-superhero fighting scenes.
Civil War is already going to be feature some pretty epic battles, including fights between Captain America and Iron-Man, which is an underlying element of the premise. The film picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off. The Avengers cause some "collateral damage" while trying to help, which spurs politicians to create a governing body whose sole purpose is to watch over the Avengers. Somewhere in there Captain America and Iron-Man branch out into their own factions, splitting the Avengers into two separate teams.
Spider-Man will almost certainly join Team Stark, which makes sense considering the miniseries comic for Civil War depicts Peter Park siding up with Stark. Assuming the film follows the same source as the comics, though, Spider-Man may switch sides towards the end, defecting to help Steve Rodgers and his team instead.
