Marvel Confirms Spider-Man Will Play A Role In Avengers 4
The wallcrawler’s involvement with the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War has been known for some time now, but it was unclear if the character would remain a part of the franchise beyond that movie. Questions were particularly raised after it was revealed that Sony Pictures would release its own series of Spider-Man films unrelated to the MCU, causing some to fear that the character would revert completely back to the company.
After today, however, fans can rest assured that Spider-Man will continue appearing in the MCU. Additionally, Feige went out of his way to clarify the relation between the planned Sony spin-off films.
Per CBR.com, the source of this story:
Feige’s statement echoes that of “Spider-Man: Homecoming” director Jon Watts, who revealed that “Venom” won’t be connected to the MCU in an earlier interview: “[‘Venom’ is] not connected to the Marvel world, so that’s really intriguing… what that will be.” As the president of Marvel Studios, Feige’s latest comment seems to put a nail in the coffin of the idea that Venom, Black Cat or Silver Sable could show up in Spidey’s solo films.
For almost twenty years, Spider-Man’s film rights have remained solely with Sony, which churned out two “Spider-Man” series starring Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield respectively.
