There May Be a Ton of Marvel Heroes in the New ‘Spider-Man’ Movie
Who would you like to see join the web-slinger?
Spider-Man’s solo outing may get real crowded.
Based off the latest Captain America: Civil War trailer, we knew that everyone’s favorite wall-crawler will be swinging on-screen in a new costume to assist #TeamIronMan come May 6th. What we didn’t know is if any of the superheroes from the Avengers universe would make an appearance once Tom Holland gets his own standalone film down the road.
Due to updated, yet still extremely confusing, contractual agreements, comic book staples like Captain America, Black Widow, and Thor could possibly show up in the untitled Spider-Man feature out July 7th, 2017. Speaking with EW, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige stated that with Spider-Man’s appearance in the latest Captain America film, anything goes. “He is in the universe now, and the fun of the universe is that characters go back and forth,” Feige told EW.
And diehard fans should be thankful of this rare occasion in cinema. Due to the underwhelming response to Andrew Garfield in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (plus, you know, that whole Sony hack), the studio made a deal with Marvel to loan out the rights to Peter Parker in exchange for a deadline extension at another chance to do Spider-Man right on the big screen. Of course, Marvel agreed. After all, sharing is caring, right?
