With Spider-Man: Homecoming arriving in theaters tomorrow and Taika Waititi‘s Thor: Ragnarok roughly for months away from release, fans are curious to see how the events of both films might shape the conflict with Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War. In an interview with the Toronto Sun, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige discussed how Thor: Ragnarok will lead into Infinity War and offered a vague hint on the identity of the next Spider-Man villain.
Kevin Feige hinted at significant changes to the MCU following the God of Thunder’s next adventure when asked if Thor: Ragnarok will be the end of a trilogy:
“I think that we are finding ourselves as we complete Phase 3 and finish this 22-movie narrative that it’s working out that way. We did three Iron Man films, three Captain America films, three Thor films. Things change drastically in Ragnarok and then build directly into Infinity War.”
While Kevin Feige would not reveal the identity of the villain who will appear in the Homecoming sequel, he did indicate that it will not be a character who has been used before:
“We are excited to use characters that you haven’t seen before on screen. So that narrows it down a little bit in terms of who will pop up next. Spider-Man has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to villains and there are a lot that haven’t been touched upon. It’s those that we will be looking at first.”
