It turns out that Captain America (Chris Evans) may have been aware of Spider-Man and his powers before their fight in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.
Thanks to the cliffhanger ending to Avengers: Infinity War, theories regarding that film and its upcoming sequel have popped up all over the place. One of the latest Marvel fan theories actually goes back a couple of years to Captain America: Civil War, which saw the introduction of Peter Parker (Tom Holland), a.k.a. Spider-Man, into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The airport fight is one of the most iconic fight scenes in the MCU and according to a fan theory, there may have been an interesting detail that some fans missed.
The theory comes in a Reddit post from user j_u_s_t_i_n and claims that the reason for Captain America dropping the sky bridge on Spider-Man is that Cap knew about the existence of Spidey all along. The theory even claims that both Tony (Robert Downey Jr.) and Cap were observing Spider-Man’s crime-fighting for later Avengers recruitment. Check out the full fan theory in the post below.
Captain America: Civil War featured many of the MCU heroes battling against one another, so much so that the effects of the events in Civil War bled over into Avengers: Infinity War. Captain America is a soldier and has shown in his films that he’s not afraid to kill the enemy, but this fan theory brings up a valid point that Cap probably wouldn’t drop a sky bridge on Iron Man’s ally, even given the circumstances.
