Which Avenger might appear in Spider-man: Homecoming? PLUS Great new Civil War clip

It seems only fair that if Spider-Man is going to pop up in other Marvel super hero films – making his debut in the MCU once Captain America: Civil War hits cinemas – then another character can return the favour and crash in on his solo film. That seems to very much be on the cards, as an Avenger’s member has hinted that there is a chance of the crossover going down in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

After he dropped in on Jimmy Kimmel Live! (via Squareeyed) the host was very eager to quiz Robert Downey Jr about Marvel’s latest arrival and Tom Holland’s take on the wall crawler.

“He’s fantastic,” he says about the young Brit’s appearance in Civil War, getting us even more excited for his solo film.

When Kimmel brings up the possibility of seeing Iron Man (or even just Tony Stark) in Homecoming, Downey replies with his typical wit “Perhaps I will, we don’t have a contract yet.” We’re taking that as a yes.

Speaking on the comics run of the friendly neighbourhood wall crawler, Downey said that “Growing up, Spider-Man was my whole deal. He was funny, he was cool, he was young.”

In related news, we have a very cool new Captain America: Civil War clip to show you – Bucky vs pretty much everyone:

Hidden deep in the woods, past the abandoned insane asylum and long-forgotten summer camp, off the old dirt road, across the creaky timber bridge, lies a log cabin. Under the full moon some have said they've heard blood-curdling howls from deep in the basement, though none have been brave enough to explore further... If they had, the shocking reveal would be that the screams come from old horror VHS tapes, accompanied by the maniacal laugh of Phil Robinson, brought on by comics and wrestling promos. The self-confessed "horror guy", he has also been known to talk about Spider-Man and heavy metal at great, unnecessary lengths. Yes, he knows he needs a haircut.
