Is this Spider-Man hoodie a hint of what to expect in Captain America: Civil War? Even the people that made it aren’t sure!
Last week, new Captain America: Civil War product images were released by Merchoid, the online retailer who had previously revealed their line of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice products. Among the “Team Cap” and “Team Stark” merchandise was a listing for a Spider-Man hoodie. Now, images of that Spider-Man hoodie are available and the question is being asked, “Is this a hint at what we’ll see from Spidey’s Civil War costume?” As it turns out, even the people that made it aren’t exactly sure!
“There’s been lots of talk online and people have been really excited that this could be what reveals the new look Spider-man,” says Merchoid community manager Jessica Adams. “However, Marvel is doing a fantastic job of keeping the new Spider-man costume under wraps, so we haven’t yet seen it! What we can say is this hoodie was designed in partnership with Marvel, who provided all the design elements from their 2016 merchandise range, including the ‘messy’ webbing, which we haven’t yet seen in any prior Spider-man costume. We’re really excited to see what Spider-man fans think! …Whether or not this is based on the new Spider-man costume, the reaction so far has been incredible. We can’t wait to hear what people think about the final product when it releases in July.”
It’s certainly an interesting note that the Spider-Man hoodie’s “messy” webbing pattern is planned for additional 2016 merchandise, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that we’ll see the same design on the big screen.

Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, Captain America: Civil War will debut in theaters on May 6, 2016.
