Spider-Man: Homecoming is the first-solo movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirms that Spider-Man will be part of a five-movie story line that has already debuted in Captain America: Civil War.
The first-solo movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Spider-Man: Homecoming with Tom Holland in the titular role is all set to release in the UK and the USA on Friday. Next movies in the series will be next year’s Avengers: Infinity War, untitled Avengers sequel and Homecoming 2,Toronto Sun reported.
“We are looking at a five-movie story line – 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,” Feige told Toronto Sun. “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 (on July 5, 2019) that usher us into the aftermath and how things proceed for there.”
The character, Spider-Man, made his entry in series during the climactic airport battle in Captain America: Civil War and in Homecoming is about how Peter Parker begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging superhero.
Apart from Tom Holland, the cast also includes Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob, Batalon, Laura Harrier, and Tyne Daly among many others.
It is also confirmed that Holland will not appear alongside Tom Hardy in Sony’s upcoming Venom, which is set to be directed by Ruben Fleischer. Venom will kickstart Sony’s own Marvel universe and include films focusing on Silver Sable and Black Cat.
