When Spider-Man is fighting Bucky and Falcon during the airport scene in Captain America: Civil War, Bucky (apparently) throws door at Spider-Man.

Spidey instinctively ducks avoiding the door from hitting him. There are theories about this being the spider-sense warning him about imminent danger..

But was this incident officially confirmed (by writers/producers or anyone) to be the first occurrence of the Spider-sense in the MCU?

  • There's nothing of any use in the film's official audio commentary

There was an interview right after Spider-Man: Homecoming, where Kevin Feige confirmed that this Spidey does have the spider-sense.

I recently asked Marvel Studios president and Homecoming producer Kevin Feige if the Spider-sense exists in the MCU or if the need for such a super-power was negated thanks to Spidey's costume now being decked out with AI and other Stark tech that aids him in exploring his surroundings.

"No, I think he has it. And I think he has it with or without that suit," Feige told IGN. "I think how we explore it in a cinematic sense will change. I mean, that was sort of a big showy part of previous versions and we thought that we'd make it more of an internal, sort of second nature thing for him."

Feige continued, "But there are ways coming up that will slowly hint at that and also just make it part of his, you know, his natural abilities. But we don't know that if it will be -- I think we'll explore it further down the line, but [it's] definitely him not the suit."

If that is the case, we can safely conclude that this version of Spider-Man does indeed have the spider-sense.

So by extension, his "reflexes" in Civil War would certainly be an outcome of the spider-sense.

So far that I was able to search, I did not find any commentary specifically on that incidence in Civil War.

    He see his arm hairs raise in infinity war. Many assume that is his spider sense. Apr 19, 2019 at 14:42
  • @JackBNimble Yes, I too believe that was a subtle indication of spidey sense.
