It’s already known that May Parker, Peter Parker’s aunt, won’t be making an appearance in Avengers: Infinity War, which means that we won’t get to see a resolution to the last scene of Spider-Man: Homecoming. In fact, from the sound of things, we shouldn’t expect to see a resolution until 2019 at the absolute earliest.
Spoiler alert: Spider-Man: Homecoming‘s closing scene features Aunt May finding out that her nephew is moonlighting as the superhero Spider-Man, at which point she bellows “WHAT THE FU-” in disbelief before the movie smashes to The Ramones rocking out over the credits. While some were hoping that this scene would be shown in a more climactic light as opposed to a closing joke, the scene did what it accomplished by having Peter’s secret identity discovered by someone who he’s close to. But according to Kevin Feige in an interview with IGN, the full extent of May’s concerns over Peter’s double-life won’t be revealed for a bit:
“I think it might be a few years [before we find out about Aunt May].”
Obviously, that doesn’t mean that we won’t hear another mention about Aunt May when Peter gets drafted into the Avengers again, but from the sound of things it doesn’t seem like she’ll show up in Avengers 4, either. So it appears that we will see how the new Peter-May dynamic plays out in the next Spider-Man movie. Thankfully, if there’s anything the audience who stuck around through the credits of Spider-Man: Homecoming have learned about, it’s the virtue of patience.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is playing in theaters. The film features a cast that includes Tom Holland as Peter Parker (Spider-Man), Robert Downey Junior as Tony Stark (Iron Man), Zendaya Coleman as Michelle, Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds, Tony Revolori as “Flash” Thompson, Laura Harrier as Liz Allan, Marisa Tomei as May Parker, Jon Favreau as Harold “Happy” Hogan, Donald Glover as Aaron Davis, Michael Keaton as Adrian Toomes (Vulture), Bokeem Woodbine as Herman Schultz (Shocker), Michael Chernus as Phineas Mason (Tinkerer), and Michael Mando as Mac Gargan.
Superhero Teams Too Powerful For Their Own Good
This past week, those of us who are both superhero fans and basketball fans, got to see the Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA finals, getting Kevin Durant his first championship ring. Those who criticized him joining the Warriors for the sake of the security of gaining a championship have a pretty good argument (but Lebron did the same thing when he took his talents to South Beach a few years ago). An even better reference for us superhero fans: Spider-Man joined the Avengers eventually for the security of being on a “championship team” over the years in the comics, even though he was more successful when on his own. Some would say that the Warriors were not a regular team, but a “superhero team” as they (like the Yankees) stacked their team with athletes too good for their own good.
Ok, enough about sports, but this makes you think about teams of superheroes in comics/movies that are unnecessarily overpowered. It’s to the point that some teams are just too strong for their own good. How could they be defeated when they are literally the strongest people in the world (or even the galaxy)? Some of these members of these teams are literal gods and undefeatable on their own, let alone teaming up with heroes that are equally if not more powerful than they are. Here are a few superhero teams that are just too powerful for their own good. Click Next to take a look….
