It’s the moment all Marvel fans have been waiting for.
Spider-Man has finally made his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the final trailer for Captain America: Civil War.
Released on Thursday, the new two-and-a-half minute clip closes with the much anticipated face-off between Chris Evans’ Cap and Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man.
‘Alright, I’ve run out of patience,’ Tony Stark says before shouting ‘Underoos!’ – referring to the children’s superhero underwear brand.
Suddenly Captain America’s shield is snagged from his grasp by web-sling from above, while his hands are instantly bound together in a second volley.
Spider-Man then flips into view, catches the shield and makes his introduction: ‘Hey everyone!
Despite being a Marvel character, Spidey has never before appeared in a Marvel Studios picture under owners Disney, unlike his comic-book stable mates The Avengers.
Even though Disney paid $4Billion for the studio, the film rights to the web-slinger were not included, as they were already licensed out to rivals Sony dating back to a time before Comic Book films were guaranteed blockbusters.
Likewise, Fox owns the rights to X-Men and The Fantastic Four, but fans have clamoured for all the properties to be owned by a single entity so that the characters can freely cross-over.
But a recent deal between Sony and Disney allowed for Peter Parker – this time played by Tom Holland – to make his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as he plays a crucial role in the eponymous Civil War.
The trailer opens on the remote island prison where The Winter Soldier AKA Steve Roger’s war buddy Bucky – is being held.
‘This job… we try to save as many people as we can,’ Captain America can be hear saying. ‘Sometimes that doesn’t mean everybody. But you don’t give up.’
As General Thaddeus Ross shows the gathered Avengers footage of the destruction caused in the events of the previous films, he tells the visibly uncomfortable group: ‘Captain, people are afraid.’
‘That’s why I’m here,’ Tony Stark chimes in. ‘We need to be put in check. Whatever form that takes, I’m game.’
‘I’m sorry Tony – If I see a situation pointed south I can’t ignore it. Sometimes I wish I could,’ Rogers replies.
‘Sometimes I wanna punch you in your perfect teeth,’ Stark shoots back.
The Cap can then be seen chasing other newcomer Black Panther – played by Chadwick Boseman – who in turn pursues Bucky on foot as he flees on a motorcycle, tearing him off it at high speed in a spectacular stunt.
‘I know we’re not perfect, but the safest hands are still our own,’ Captain America claims as Tony Stark can be seen grappling with Bucky over a gun.
He activates his watch to transform it into one of Iron Man’s gauntlets, which is just as well as Bucky fires the gun at what would have been his face, with Stark recoiling in shock as he stops the bullet.
Don Cheadle’s War Machine is not as lucky in the following scene as he is shot down mid flight.
‘I was wrong about you,’ Stark says has he is seen kneeling over his friend inside the downed suit. ‘The whole world was wrong about you.’
‘They’re coming for you,’ he tells Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow. ‘I’m not the one who has to watch their back,’ she snaps back.
‘This doesn’t have to end in a fight Tony,’ the Captain appeals, only to be punched in the face. ‘You started a war,’ Iron Man retorts.
The battle lines are clearly drawn as the former allies go head to head; Scarlet Witch can be seen immobilizing Paul Bettany’s Vision, while Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man is launched at Iron Man mid flight, slipping between his fingers in his miniaturized form and tumbling along his arm to tackle him in mid air.
‘Stay down: final warning,’ Iron Man tells a battered Captain America as he charges a gauntlet blast.
‘I could do this all day,’ he defiantly replies.
The opposing sides – Captain America, Winter Soldier, Hawkeye, Falcon and Ant-Man on one side, Iron Man, Black Widow, Black Panther, The Vision and War Machine on the other – then charge at each other for what looks like the climactic airport set battle.
The film is based on the seven-part comic series that saw the Marvel Universe divided over a Superhero Registration Act, introduced after dozens of children are killed in an explosion during battle being filmed for a reality series.
It marks the point where Peter Parker reveals his secret identity to the world in support of Stark’s push for superhero regulation, but he switches side after seeing another superhero – Goliath – get killed in the ensuing clash.
Captain America: Civil War hits theatres on May 6.
