Over the past few days there have been a few actors who have confirmed to be in Atlanta, presumably to start production on Avengers: Infinity War. Its more than likely that we can add Tom Holland (Spider-Man) to that list, as mentioned in an Instagram livestream.
In the livestream, Tom Holland comments “We’re obviously working” before questioning if he is allowed to say that yet. He turns to an unseen person for confirmation saying, “People know, right? What we’re here for?” Holland then turns back towards the camera covering his mouth and lets out a chuckle as he says, “Well now they know.” Holland turns off the livestream quickly after out of fear of saying something he is not supposed to.

Clearly, Tom Holland does not explicitly say what it is he is working on, but considering that Infinity War just started shooting a couple days ago and Holland’s secrecy on the matter, it seems pretty evident that this is almost surely what he is talking about.
It’s not a surprise that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will be in the newest Avengers. Just about every living MCU character is thought to make some sort of appearance anyway, but Spider-Man was directly confirmed to have a role in early January.
Before Avengers: Infinity War, audiences will be able to get another look at Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in Spider-Man: Homecoming. It’s not yet known how much the events of Homecoming will affect the MCU, but there may be some hints at what is to come in Infinity War. There are still four films that will come out before Avengers 3, but excitement has never been higher for the “end” of the current state of the MCU as we know it.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is in theaters July 7, 2017. Avengers: Infinity War will debut May 4, 2018.
