Has Marvel Already Told Us How Spider-Man Will Be Introduced To The MCU
< >
We finally have our new Peter Parker, and we know that he's going to make a cameo in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War. But what we don't know yet is quite how Spider-Man will be introduced into the MCU. Enter a Reddit user, u/SpiffySpacemanSpiff who spotted what he thinks may be a major clue about how Spidey will cross paths with Earth's Mightiest Heroes, and if he's right it would mean Marvel have been teasing us since the release of Ant-Man.

Watch the two videos below, and be sure to keep your eyes on the news-ticker at the bottom of the screen. 

Did you catch the headline that read "Stark Industries announces new scholarship for promising students from urban city schools"?

As the Reddit user points out, there's one particular kid who is incredibly promising, and he just so happens to go to an urban city school.

BAM - My guess is that Tony uses this as a way to track down and get Peter into the Avenger's Tower! - said the Reddit user

While I'm not sure the scholarship is something Stark uses to actively track down Spider-Man, it would certainly serve as a nice tool to bring Parker into the fray. We still don't know the extent of Tom Holland's Spider-Man cameo in Captain America: Civil War, but a congratulatory meeting with Tony Stark at Avengers Tower to celebrate securing a scholarship could be a nice link, but it wouldn't explain how we get to see the new Spidey suit, which we were all pretty sure was teased by the Russo Brothers last month.

Recently, rumors have been swirling around the Internet that suggest Stark and his team will actually make Parker's Spider-Man suit. If that's the case, it could lend credence to this fan theory, with the scholarship deal being a nice way for the pair to meet in person.

Either way, it probably won't be long before we get some new information on this. Disney's D23 is coming up this weekend, and it's widely expected that the first footage from Civil War will be screened to fans during the 'Worlds, Galaxies, and Universes: Live Action' panel.
