In a deal with Sony, it has been decided that Spider-Man will be a part of the next two Avengers movies, according to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. Spider-Man will appear in the Avengers: Infinity War that is slated for 4 May, next year and an untitled Avengers movie in 2019.
The deal with Sony will allowed the wall-crawler to enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe with his debut in Captain America: Civil War and his stanalone film Spider-Man: Homecoming that is set to release this year.
After his appearance in the second Avengers movie, Spider-Man will be seen again in the Homecoming sequel, also set for 2019 release.
Meanwhile, Sony is going ahead with the bug-boy’s spinoffs like Venom and a Silver Sable/Black Cat team up movie, but in that Marvel is not involved.
Sony’s animated theatrical Spider-Man movie focussing on Miles Morales will also not have any relation to the Marvel universe.
With characters from the various Marvel movies coming together for the war against Thanos and bringing in their individuality and distinctiveness, it will be interesting to see the web-slinger’s quirks, innocence and spunk.
