Prior to the Spider-Man deal, certain characters such as Georges Batroc, Christine Everhart, Ben Urich, Wilson Fisk, Mister Hyde, and Frank Castle have already shown up in the MCU prior to the webslinger's arrival.
In Ant-Man (2015), when Luis is recanting Falcon's search for Ant-Man, a woman had mentioned "we got a guy who jumps, a guy who swings, and a guy who climb up the walls", which is the first MCU reference to Spider-Man.
Once Holland finally got the role, Evans took to twitter to write, "HUGE congrats to @TomHolland1996!!! Well deserved, We're lucky to have you."
However, due to the fact that Holland portrays Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the MCU and Bernthal portrays Frank Castle/Punisher in the MCU, a chunk of fans who didn't know about Pilgrimage (2017) were confused by the photo, assuming that Tom was on the set of the upcoming Captain America: Civil War (2016), which sent fans into a frenzy. A news site even published an article saying "Civil War Spoilers: Tom Holland Teases Punisher's Role In Civil War".
