UPDATE: Turns out, as we suspected, the photo is fake.

“Captain America: Civil War” promises to be one of the more interesting Marvel films to date for many reasons. Sure, not only will we manage to see the Avengers onscreen together one more time than we expected, but we’ll also be getting our first look at Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man, who is set to be played by Tom Holland both in “Civil War,” and in the upcoming standalone Spider-Man flick. Of course, one of the biggest questions has been, “what will the suit look like?” 

The folks at Comic Book Movie have posted what they believe is a shot from “Civil War” showcasing the new Spidey suit.

Check it out below!

Pretty cool, right? And it’s exactly in line with what many were expecting. In Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, Spider-Man has been swinging around New York for some time, though it would make sense that he’d still be running around in a homemade costume. Rumor has it that Tony Stark will make him a more traditional suit in the film, which also makes a lot of sense. 

A couple weeks back, we broke the first real batch of information on the design, along with an artist’s rendition. You can check out that photo below.

The real question, of course, is…is this real?

Supposedly, that photo from Comic Book Movie is a leak from the footage coming in this weekend’s D23, which is Disney’s own fan expo. At a glance, it’s incredibly promising. It’s well-made, and it even has Iron Man zooming all below Peter Parker. It’s a brilliant detail. Though as much as I love this, I’m remaining incredibly skeptical.

To me, this falls in line a little too much into what we’ve all been speculating. It’s almost like some incredibly talented person read all the speculation and concocted something that was mostly on-point, but different enough to shake off any suspicion. The fact that this is Disney also is a bit suspicious. Sure, there’s usually plenty of leaked information and concept art from them, but how often do we actually get leaked footage photos? I could be wrong, but I don’t recall a single one. They’re far too protected of their IP to let something like that happen.

What do you think? Do you like the look of Spider-Man’s costume? More importantly, do you think this photo is real? Let us know in the comments down below!
