When Tom Holland was cast as Peter Parker / Spider-Man as part of the joint effort between Marvel Studios and Sony, it was only confirmed that he’d be part of his upcoming solo film. There was speculation and talk that the character would be debuting in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as part of Captain America: Civil War, but nothing had been officially announced.

But this weekend at the D23 Expo we finally got confirmation that Tom Holland would be a part of Civil War in the form of a press release (his name has been highlighted):

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” picks up where “Avengers: Age of Ultron” left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.

The movie stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Frank Grillo, Tom Holland, with William Hurt and Daniel Brühl. Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” is directed by Anthony & Joe Russo and produced by Kevin Feige. Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Nate Moore and Stan Lee serve as executive producers and the screenplay is by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely. Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” opens in the U.S. on May 6, 2016.

And we’ve also got news that the actor is in Germany where the final bits of Civil War are being filmed. Instagram user DEER.DEHAAN posted a couple of photos she took of the actor:



So now we know that it won’t just be Spidey making an appearance, but we’ll also get to see Peter Parker as well.

I am eagerly awaiting Captain America: Civil War (or Avengers 2.5, essentially) when it hits theaters next year.
