Will Ant-man give us our first MCU hint at Spider-man?

We are now only slightly over a month to the release of Marvel’s Ant-Man movie. The film’s publicity campaign has had various ups and downs, though I still maintain hope in the film, particularly after the most recent trailer.

With all of this being said, it turns out that Marvel’s “true believers” may need to be more excited for this film that they already are. According to Latino-Review, we may be getting our first references towards Spider-Man in this entry to the cinematic universe.

Now let me clarify, this does not mean that we will see Spider-Man, nor does it mean that we will see any of his villains or supporting cast. What this means is that we will get small Easter-Eggs for what is to come.

If I had to guess, the reference will probably be something similar to the Doctor Strange reference we saw in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. We will here a reference to Peter Parker, Norman Osborn or OsCorp and that will be it.

However, with all this tempering of expectations to one side, it is exciting that we will begin to see elements of the Wall-Crawler’s backstory be introduced into the MCU. As far as Ant-Man goes, there may be hope for the little guy yet… and yes I am aware I used this pun before.

My name is James and I am a long time fan of Movies, TV and Comics. I am currently a student, wrapping up my education at Aberystwyth University. I have an undergraduate degree in film and television and I’m working on my Masters in scriptwriting. My personal favourite comic character is the Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), and I view the film adaptation as one of the most horrifying experiences I have had in a movie theatre. As far as film and television go, I am usually willing to give any genre a try, as long as the project is well executed.
