Spider-Man’s MCU entrance in Captain America: Civil War was a moment to rejoice for Marvel fans. While the Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield Spider-Man films were great, Tom Holland’s introduction finally brought the web-slinger back home. The action stunts also blew the fandom’s collective mind mind, but they weren’t as effortless as it seemed in the theatrical cut. A Captain America: Civil War set video revealed a behind-the-scenes blooper in Spider-Man’s MCU entrance.
This amazing Captain America: Civil War blooper came courtesy of stunt performer Marvin Ross. Ross took to his Instagram to share the “blink-and-you-miss-it” outtake of the web-slinger’s MCU entrance. The short clip shows the Tom Holland stunt double making an effortless stunt before a minor slip-up happened. But the best moment of the outtake was Ross’s recovery in the Spider-Man suit.
Seeing the clip showed just how much effort goes into making those MCU action scenes appear otherworldly. Marvin Ross was able to play off the moment without injuring himself, which is a feat. Ross’s actual slip-up was barely noticeable, but his recovery made the moment seem scripted rather than an outtake. The way he caught himself before sticking the landing spoke to how professional and talented he is as a stunt performer. Honestly, the outtake was so good, it could’ve made the final cut for Spider-Man’s amazing introduction.
Marvin Ross’ Instagram blooper just how important stunt performers are to making the MCU run. If you want to see more of Ross’s work for Spider-Man’s MCU entrance, you stream Captain America: Civil War on Hulu, Disney+ and Prime Video.
