AVENGERS 4 (2019): Spider-Man Confirmed To Appear

Marvel Confirms Spider-Man Will Play A Role In Avengers 4

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige announces that Spider-Man will continue to play a role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and appear 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.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
