It goes without question that one of the standouts from Captain America: Civil War (CA: CW) was Spider-Man. His return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe was nothing short of spectacular. Actor Tom Holland delivered a charming and faithful performance, returning the character to his high-school roots.
With CA: CW now out on Blu-ray and DVD in the UK (sorry US readers) videos are cropping up online of the extra features included in the home video release. One such video is a little behind-the-scenes look at Tom Holland shooting scenes as Spider-Man in the movie (via YouTube account stayupthere). The video showcases Tom in a practical version of his Spidey suit performing an array of acrobatics, alongside preparing for the iconic runway scene. But of course there comes a time where the magic of CGI is required, thus Tom sports a motion-capture suit in the video, too. Check it out below:
The Blu-ray/DVD release of CA: CW contains 60 minutes of special features. Some of those include a gag reel, audio commentary from directors Anthony and Joe Russo, and a preview of Doctor Strange. Marvel’s latest superhero blockbuster earned $1.13 billion at the box-office and scored well with critics.
“Political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability when the actions of the Avengers lead to collateral damage. The new status quo deeply divides members of the team. Captain America (Chris Evans) believes superheroes should remain free to defend humanity without government interference. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) sharply disagrees and supports oversight. As the debate escalates into an all-out feud, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) must pick a side.”
The Blu-ray/DVD debuts September 13 in the US. Several digital platforms, such as Amazon, Vudu and iTunes, have the film available now, however.
