Robert Downey Jr. is Driving the Hype Train by Teasing SPIDER-MAN in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

He is a master of the Marvel tease, has been doing it longer than any other Marvel Studios actor and certainly loves driving the hype train. Robert Downey Jr. was on Late Show with David Letterman and was teasing CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR.

Downey said the movie will begin shooting in just a few weeks, which we already knew. And mentioned that even though Iron Man and Captain America will be opposing each other in the film, neither of them are evil or enemies. This implies they still have respect for each other but still are on opposite sides of an adapted super hero registration program from the comic book story arc.

He was then asked if Spider-Man will appear, and Downey took that opportunity to razz the fan base with his response.

“He may well be. Yeah, I hear that they’re looking to cast a new Spider-Man.”

Not that the fans needed to be teased about Spider-Man because it's been rumored for several months that Spider-Man would make his first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Civil War. However, this is the first time any actor has acknowledged that Spider-Man might actually appear in Civil War. 

It's all starting to fall into place for Spidey, especially with first reported short list of actors for the role happening yesterday. Definitely stay tuned because Spider-Man in Civil War seems destined to happen.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR releases on May 4, 2016.
