6 Reasons Why Spider-Man Is The Best Thing In Captain America: Civil War

Captain America: Civil War is out in the US today, but audiences around the world have been clasping their eyes on the movie for over a week now. And the verdict, from audiences and critics, is already in: the second Captain America sequel, and the second MCU film from Joe and Anthony Russo, is one of the strongest entries in the franchise.

The highlights are manifold. In fact, there’s so much going on in Civil War, both in terms of plot and character work, that it should be difficult to pinpoint one standout feature. Only it’s unexpectedly easy, because not only does Civil War reboot a much-loved Marvel character, but the Russo brothers also utilize said character perfectly.


Spider-Man makes only a fleeting appearance in Civil War – in the grand scheme of things, he’s about as relevant to the plot as Ant-Man, a near-cameoing act recruited only to take part in the epic airport battle – but if there’s one character that steals the show, it’s him.

So, on that note, here are six reasons why Spider-Man is absolutely the best thing in Captain America: Civil War.
