While Spider-Man: Homecoming will be the titular hero’s first standalone film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the wall crawler made his memorable MCU debut in last year’s Captain America: Civil War. Of course, with the web slinger confirmed to appear in Avengers: Infinity War, fans have been wondering if Spider-Man’s role in the film will be comparable to his first MCU appearance or if he will have a larger presence. In an interview with Fandango, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige commented on just how much of Spider-Man fans can expect to see in the third Avengers film.
Feige revealed that Spider-Man’s role in Avengers: Infinity War will be equivalent to his initial MCU appearance:
“I think it might feel bigger a little bit because of Homecoming and because of what people know from it, but it’s about on par with [Civil War].”
When asked if characters from Spider-Man: Homecoming might appear in Infinity War, Feige played coy:
“There’s a pretty big crew already in those movies, but you might keep an eye out.”

As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautisa, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan, Chadwick Boseman, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Tom Hiddleston, Tessa Thompson, Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin.
Avengers: Infinity War will be released in theaters on May 4, 2018.
5 Ways Venom Could Show Up In The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Even before Sony lent Spider-Man to Marvel Studios, there was talk about Sony doing their own spin-off films focusing on characters they owned, including both heroes and villains. The end of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 even teased a possible Sinister Six film. Many thought that Venom, one of Spider Man’s most popular villains, would also get his own film. Although he appeared in Sam Rami’s Spider-Man 3, Venom was less than well received. If anyone could use a character redemption, it was Eddie Brock.
Those hopes seemed to dash after The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was deemed a failure and Sony’s future with the Spider-Man character seemed uncertain. It seemed as if the movie gods smiled on fans as Sony worked out a partnership with Marvel Studios, which allowed Spider-Man to appear in Marvel Cinematic Universe films. Spider-Man’s first appearance in the MCU was in Captain America: Civil War and actor Tom Holland’s performance as the wall-crawler was universally praised.
But Sony’s not done doing their own thing. It was announced that a movie featuring Silver Sable and Black Cat was in the works. It was then revealed that Tom Hardy is attached to play Venom in another project. Marvel Studios has previously said that these projects would be based at Sony and exist outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, Amy Pascal recently said that the Silver Sable and Black Cat film, as well as Venom, are set within the same universe as Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Did she let something slip, or was this wishful thinking on her part? Either way, that led us here at Heroic Hollywood to think of ways that Venom could be incorporated into and show up in the MCU. Click Next to take a look…
