The fight over whether Spider-Man should have organic or mechanical web shooters in film / TV adaptations has been ongoing — Sam Raimi went against canon by making Spidey’s web-slinging abilities the result of a mutation, while one of the only thing Marc Webb’s films did right was give the hero mechanical web shooters. But what will Marvel and Sony’s newly rebooted Spider-Man have when he makes his debut in Captain America: Civil War?

Everyone loves superhero movies…at least right now. But, if there’s one thing 2015 has shown us is that there is success to be had, and lots of it, without them.

Or have they? New production art from the season really wants you to believe in an Arrow / Green Lantern teamup.
