It’s learned new Spider-Man merchandise is under embargo until the 15th, which is next Friday.
Merchoid.com has a listing for an officially licensed Spider-Man hoodie where it’s stated:
Ok, so here’s the deal: we have photos of the Spider-man hoodie coming very soon. We really, REALLY want to show it to you now, but we’re not allowed to just yet. Make sure you check back on the 15th January for your very first look!
With the images under embargo, it’s possible the pics of the hoodie may give clues as to the design of the new Tom Holland Spider-Man costume. Taking a quick glance at some of the related products seems to match the color schemes for the various properties (Destiny, Super Mario, Assassin’s Creed, Captain America, etc).
This also begs the question, if the site is under embargo, does that mean more Spider-Man merchandise will be released next week? And the obvious: Will Marvel reveal a look at Tom Holland’s Spider-Man costume next week?
Of course, the Spider-Man hoodie could simply have nothing to do with the movie.
“Captain America: Civil War” has a May 6, 2016 release date directed by Anthony and Joe Russo starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Emily VanCamp, William Hurt, Martin Freeman and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther.
Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
