Kevin Feige Responds To Rumors That 'Spider-Man' Is Set To Join THE AVENGERS

While Marvel's reveal of their full slate of upcoming movies was obviously huge, many fans expected Kevin Feige to confirm recent rumours that Spider-Man will appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. What did he say when asked about whether it's going to happen?


What a day! With everything from Black Panther casting news to the reveal of a full slate of Marvel releases, there's enough to keep us all going for a very long time. However, conspicuous by his absence was Spider-Man. With Civil War officially kicking off in Captain America 3, and Thanos taking centre stage in a two-part Avengers epic, where does this leave the Sony owned character who has been rumoured to be making the leap to Marvel Studios? Kevin Feige was asked exactly that today, and responded with the following: "Anything that wasn’t specifically and obviously revealed today is either not true at all, or still rumor until it’s worked out." While it would be easy to read into how he ends that sentence (Marvel and Sony must be coming to a deal!), let's look at this logically for a second. Captain America 3 isn't setting up Civil War for a future Avengers movie; it's an adaptation of that storyline which will involve Black Panther and have to address the hunt for Bucky. Will Marvel really shoehorn Spidey into all of that? Probably not, and though he might make an appearance in the two-part Avengers movie, do Marvel need him? No! What do you think?
