SPIDER-MAN (2017): Kevin Feige Suggests Avengers Will Appear

Captain America Civil War

Kevin Feige says The Avengers might appear in Spider-Man. The Marvel Studios president commented that the webslinger’s role in Captain America: Civil War has opened the way for future crossovers.

For years, fans have lamented the fact that Marvel was unable to include the popular character in it’s cinematic universe. It was only recently that Sony relented and gave the film rights to the character back to Marvel. This makes it possible for the spider-themed superhero to play a role in the company’s flagship movie series.

As Feige explained, there is also a chance that characters from The Avengers will appear in solo Spider-Man films, noting that “the fun of the universe is that characters go back and forth.” The Marvel Studios chief’s comment may be far from definitive, but it does open the door to numerous possibilities:

He doesn’t elaborate further, but it’s safe to say Chris Evans‘ Steve Rogers and/or Robert Downey Jr.‘s Tony Stark are the two most likely candidates to pop up in the upcoming Jon Watts-directed film, that is if they first make it out of Captain America: Civil War alive. Outside of those two, it’s anyone’s guess. Over the past eight years, Marvel has built a vast cinematic universe with a plethora of rich and likable characters, so it could be one or a combination of any of the following: Black Widow, Hawkeye, Winter Soldier, Black Panther, Falcon, Scarlet Witch, Ant-Man, Vision, War Machine, Agent Peggy Carter, Nick Fury, Maria Hill, Sharon Carter, Hank Pym, Wasp, Doctor Strange, Daredevil, Punisher, Elektra, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and/or Mockingbird. However, with Thor: Ragnarok kicking off production in Australia around the same time as Spider-Man, it’s highly unlikely we’ll see either Chris Hemsworth‘s Thor or Mark Ruffalo‘s Hulk.

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.
