The newest trailer for Captain America: Civil War introduces a new character into the Marvel Cinematic Universe whose name is either Spider-Man or Underoos. But who is this mystery man? Speculation ahead.

What does this Spider-Man do? It looks like he shoots some type of sticky spider thread though we can’t tell if it’s from a concealed thread shooter or organic. Does he have any other powers? Is he part spider? A man-shaped spider? Or did his plane crash in the Amazonian jungle and he learned arcane arachnid secrets from a hidden tribe of spider people? Given his costume colors is he a male graduate of Soviet Red Room training (or perhaps a descendant of Dottie Undewood)?

Maybe he’ll get his own movie that will explain his origin.
