Gotta love a man with a plan. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has confirmed the bare minimum of speculation about the future of the Wall Crawler in the MCU — that Marvel has a 5-movie arc planned for Tom Holland’s Spider-Man.
In an interview with the Toronto Sun, Feige laid out the near-term picture for Spider-Man, starting with the character’s debut in last year’s Captain America movie, “We are looking at a five-movie storyline — Civil War, Homecoming, Avengers: Infinity War, untitled Avengers, Homecoming 2 — or whatever we end up calling it — as an amazing five-story journey for Peter Parker,” said Feige.
He added, “In the way that the events of Civil War directly inform the opening of Homecoming and his state of mind as he goes back to high school, so too will the events of the next two Avengers movies as he continues with high school. This original 22-movie arc ends with the untitled Avengers in May of 2019 and then two months later it will be Peter and Spider-Man that usher us into the aftermath and how things proceed from there.”
“Spider-Man: Homecoming” comes out this week, and early reactions (not to mention the pro reviews) are, to put it mildly, extremely positive.
“Spider-Man: Homecoming” opens July 7.
