Avengers: Infinity War is going to have to handle the challenge of juggling the biggest cast ever assembled for a Marvel movie, and one of the biggest additions to the team is going to be the addition of Spider-Man, which was seen as incredibly unlikely prior to the unprecedented deal between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios. But from the sound of things, Spider-Man is going to have a pretty big part in his third appearance in the MCU.
In a conversation with Yahoo Movies, Tom Holland noted that his role in Avengers: Infinity War is much larger than it was in Captain America: Civil War – which is to be expected, given that Spider-Man’s role in Civil War was a late addition made possible only by a last-minute deal on the part of Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures. However, expect the web head to be more than just Tony Stark’s trump card this time around:
“It’s been crazy, man. It’s been a really, really surreal experience… When I did Civil War, I only worked with Chris [Evans] and Robert [Downey Jr.] very briefly. Everyone else was sort of like, I was acting with a tennis ball or all this sort of stuff. I saw everyone, but I never got to work with them. For this now, I’m in a situation where I’m on set with all these guys doing scenes, fighting bad guys. It’s been a real whirlwind. It’s been a lot of fun.”
So we now know that Spider-Man will definitely be going up against baddies this time around, unlike his cameo in Captain America: Civil War where he fought against Captain America and the Winter Soldier and helped capture Giant-Man, Falcon, Hawkeye, and Scarlet Witch. Since Spider-Man is in effect being leased over to Marvel, it’s not surprising to hear that they’re going to make the absolute most of his appearance in the biggest movie that they’ve ever made.
