Spider-Man: Homecoming is just a few days away, but fans are already looking past the new film to what the future holds. We know that Sony is creating a massive “Spider-Verse” that includes films like Venom, Black Cat/ Silver Sable, and Kraven/Mysterio, but that world will seemingly not be tied to Tom Holland’s Spider-Man or the MCU. So what is the plan for Spidey and how he ties in to the Marvel Cinematic Universe on the whole? Kevin Feige has given a new statement on the matter that is not only interesting, but reminds us of the enormity of the cinematic universe that he’s helped create…Has it really been 22 movies?
“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. 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.”
