A new behind-the-scenes clip from the “Captain America: Civil War” home video release highlights Tom Holland’s debut as Spider-Man, and reveals more of the movie magic behind the iconic airport battle scene.
Set to the pulsing beat of Alt J’s “Left Hand Free,” the one minute clip shows Holland in his practical suit, working on fight choreography and doing his own stunt work during the filming of the third Captain America movie.
Additionally, the clip shows how much work went into prepping and making the airport scene, and reveals that there is more CGI in the sequence that meets the eye. Team Captain America and Team Iron Man are shown rushing at each other in front of a green screen, rather than on the tarmac of an actual airport.
Astute viewers will notice that the practical version of the Spidey Suit that Holland wears during the filming differs from the one we see in the final cut. The bicep and wrist bands that appear onscreen are added in post production to mask the censors the actor wears during the filming.
The sequence also shows Holland in the motion capture suit used to record his movements for the creation of the fully-CGI version of Spider-Man used in sequences that were either too dangerous or too impossible to create on a live-action set.
“Captain America: Civil War” is out now on Digital HD, and releases on DVD and Blu-ray on September 13.
