SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Nearly Ended With A Twist CIVIL WAR Fans Will Appreciate

Spider-Man: Homecoming writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein reveal that an earlier version of the reboot nearly featured an iconic moment from Mark Millar and Steve McNiven's Civil War...

Spider-Man: Homecoming ends with Peter Parker turning down Tony Stark's offer to join The Avengers and be introduced to the world as a new member of Earth's Mightiest Heroes in front of the press. 

However, that moment very nearly played out very differently as screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein have revealed that the scene initially presented Peter not just introducing Spider-Man to the world but unmasking and revealing his secret identity just like his comic book counterpart on the final page of Civil War #2. That would have obviously changed his status quo in a massive way! 

"That scene with the press behind the door, that started off as a more clear opportunity for Peter to say to the world, 'I Peter
Parker, am Spider-Man,'" Goldstein explained. "And he decides not to do it and walks away. It’s still that, but it had been set up that if he could just tell the world who he is, he would get all his problems solved and be loved by everyone." Daley adds: "What he realizes is that there is a virtue in being a secret identity and how he kind of has the advantage in many ways over his other superhero buddies." That sounds just like the Spidey we know and love from the comics!

While it would have been interesting to see Peter contemplate unmasking, keeping his identity a secret makes a lot more sense and it will be fun seeing how he interacts with Aunt May moving forward now she knows. What do you guys think? As always, let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
