Spider-man to make his MCU debut in Captain America: Civil War?

February 10th, 2015 by Marc Comments


In case you have been under a rock for the last 12 hours or so, Spider-man is coming home to Marvel’s cinematic universe but will still be guided by  Sony (here).

And there has been much speculation as to when he will debut. And, well, it looks like it’s going to be pretty soon.Now reports are suggesting that it will be in Captain America: Civil War which opens on May 6th next year.

A source at the Wall Street Journal has said that Captain America 3 is where we’ll see Spidey, and they also report: “We also know that the next solo Spider-Man film, which is being co-produced by Marvel and Sony Pictures, will arrive in 2017. The Wall Street Journal also claims that Andrew Garfield is out, as there will be “a new version of the web-slinger.”

A new version, huh? Wonder what that means…

But what about the Sinister Six movie Sony were working on with Drew Goddard scripting?: “Sony will delay its planned release of “The Sinister Six,” about a group of Spider-Man villains, in wake of the new deal said a person involved in movie. It had been scheduled for release in November of 2016.” says the Wall Street Journal

We were sort of hoping the Amazing Spider-man movies could now be counted as part of the MCU but it seems that’s not going to happen.

There’s also rumours that we may see Spidey in Avengers: Age of Ultron; perhaps post-credit. Though we find this very unlikely…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
