Ok, this may be the worst kept secret in the world, but we now have true, undeniable, irrefutable confirmation that Spider-Man (who was recently casted as Tom Holland) will appear in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War.
Why was this the worst kept secret? Because since the deal between Sony and Marvel was announced, and the rights revealed to allow Marvel to have Spider-Man in their films, it wasn’t too hard of a guess as to which upcoming Marvel film would feature him in it. The easy answer was Age of Ultron, and in fact that almost happening, but timing got in the way and thus it didn’t happen. It certainly wasn’t going to be in Ant-Man (no offense to the movie) so thus, it was going to be the next big Marvel film, Civil War. Which just so happens to be having a lot of the Avengers in it. So…
On the topic, Kevin Fiege chatted with The Hollywood Reporter about it, and noted his joy about the arrival:
“Well, we’re producing it for Sony. It’s exciting, and we’re treating it like we treat all of our films,” Feige said. “To try to make the best version now of Spider-Man and a version of Spider-Man that inhabits this universe that we’ve created. We’re in lockstep with [Sony Motion Picture Group chairman] Tom Rothman and [producer] Amy Pascal at every turn.”
Here’s hoping for the beginning of a beautiful (and long) movie career for this form of Spider-Man.
