Spider-Man is one of the most beloved superheroes of all time and you would be hard pressed to find anyone that doesn't enjoy the charm of his story. Peter Parker is the average nerd that gets bitten by a radioactive spider to get the super powers that makes him Spider-Man. A life without his parents, but the love of his uncle and aunt, adds a human element that all superheroes need for a reader or viewer to connect. Spider-Man has that in his advantage, but the story hasn't always been done in the best of ways in the movie world to satisfy fans.
Sam Raimi’s trilogy in the 2000s was a huge success in the box office but it had a great deal of flaws. Spider-Man 3 is legendary for the horrible writing involved in the final product. The next big screen version of the Spidey franchise saw Andrew Garfield try his luck as Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man films. The films were met with complete disappointment from fans and luckily future projects involving the story were scrapped. Marvel made the blockbuster move to get rights to the future movies of Spider-Man under the Marvel Cinematic Universe umbrella and that started in Captain America: Civil War.
Civil War featured Tony Stark recruiting Peter Parker to join Iron Man’s side of the “war” against Captain America and the rebels. With the solo movie of Spider-Man: Homecoming debuting in 2017, the scenes in Civil War gave us an insight into what to expect next year. Spidey making an appearance in Civil War was done rather quickly and in surprising fashion. The 19-year-old Tom Holland scored the acting role of a lifetime as Peter in the MCU Spider-Man films. We’ll take a look at some of the details established in Captain America: Civil War and ten things it taught us about Spider-Man: Homecoming.

9 He's Had Powers for Six Months Around The Time of Civil War
8 He's A Massive Nerd
7 Only One Person Knows Peter is Spider-Man
6 Aunt May is Hot and Tony Stark Knows it
5 Tony Stark is his New Mentor
4 He's a Big Fan of Captain America
3 He's Strong Enough to Fight Avengers
2 We Will See the Origin Story Yet Again
1 Marvel Has Saved Spider-Man From Sony
The shocking news of Spider-Man being a property of the Marvel Cinematic Universe rather than a Sony product on the big screen created optimism for all comic book fans. Sony did a poor job with the franchise in many ways that broke the hearts of Spider-Man fans but Marvel is here to save the day. There was some fear of Peter Parker once again being too far removed from the comic character we are all used to but they finally got it right. Parker is the perfect mix of snark, nerd and heart all under one red suit. Marvel showed enough in Civil War to give us full faith that the Spider-Man franchise will finally thrive in the box office.
