Spider-Man's evolution from the comics to Captain America: Civil War

Now comes the time for Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield to bow to their MCU successor, Tom Holland

There's one thing everyone's dying to talk about after watching the trailer for Captain America: Civil War: that first look at the MCU's own take on Spider-Man, as played by Tom Holland. 

As Spidey launches into view with a meek, "hey everyone", the brief shot of the hero already reveals his new, improved costume; which seems to be a throwback to the versions seen in the comics, as opposed to the hyper-realistic ones sported by his earlier cinematic compatriots. 

It's a testament to the sheer popularity of the character that we've reached a third onscreen iteration of the character in the space of 14 years; yet everyone still has the energy to lose their minds over 10 seconds of a new Spidey. 

It's certainly been a long journey for your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man; from his humble beginnings in an issue of science-fiction and supernatural anthology Amazing Fantasy, to his dual iterations by actors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.
