Now that Spider-Man is a member of the Marvel Studios Cinematic Universe, other members of the MCU family can join the web-slinger’s upcoming solo movie.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Marvel Studios chief, Kevin Feige, confirmed that other MCU characters will appear in the solo Spider-Man film, “He is in the universe now, and the fun of the universe is that characters go back and forth.”
Obviously, Feige didn’t specify which characters. The film can include other Spider-Man characters aside from Spidey, as the film is being produced with Sony. That studio still has the screen rights to the Spider-Man family of characters, but announced in 2015 that it would work with Marvel so your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man could work with the Avengers.
The MCU Spidey will make his debut in Captain America: Civil War and will be played by Tom Holland. The new solo film, directed by Jon Watts, is scheduled to hit theaters July 7, 2017.
