With the papers signed and an impossible deal reached, we will be seeing Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe sooner rather than later. Per the terms of the deal, Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige are producing a standalone Spider-Man film for release in 2017, but the character is officially poised to make his debut first in another MCU movie. Reports have been pretty certain that Spidey will make an appearance in next May’s Captain America: Civil War, but there’s been some chatter recently that the new webslinger might be popping up earlier than that. Much earlier.
Rumors have swirled that Marvel may be adding a tag to the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron featuring Spider-Man, giving audiences their first taste of the Marvel Studios-steered iteration of the superhero. Steve recently spoke with Marvel President Kevin Feige at the sequel’s press day and posed the question directly: Will Spider-Man appear in a post-credits tag on Age of Ultron?
So there you have it. According to Feige, the chatter is simply conjecture. Of course the final post-credits stinger for The Avengers was shot less than a month before that film’s release so things could change, but according to Feige, don’t expect to see the new Spidey next month.
