It seems as though Marvel and Sony’s plans for Spider-Man are starting to make a bit more sense.
It has been known for some time that Sony and Marvel only currently have plans to work together through the sequel of Spider-Man: Homecoming. Now it seems the two companies actually plotted out a five-part story arc for good old Webhead.
Speaking with The Toronto Sun, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige explained the exact details of the plan.
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.
So now we know the launch of Phase 4 – or whatever Marvel calls everything from there on out – will hinge on its most famous character. This does not mean that Sony and Marvel can’t work out a further deal, but it’s clear they were able to formulate some sort of plan for his inclusion in this current section of the MCU.
Two of my co-workers were lucky enough to attend the premiere of Spider-Man: Homecoming and they have promised me it’s everything we’re hoping for and more, so here’s hoping this plan works out.
