Marvel fans and comic book enthusiasts know that “The Avengers” are among the key characters on “Captain America: Civil War.” But aside from that, Marvel reportedly hinted that the film will focus on another epic superhero — SpiderMan — saying that this is “where he belongs.”
Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige provided some hints on how Spider-Man will be essential to the highly- anticipated film of 2016.
“I think Spider-Man can serve great purpose in our universe and that’s where he belongs,” Feige revealed on IGN.
“That was what was unique about him in the comics was not that he was the only superhero in the world; it’s that he was a totally different kind of superhero when compared against all the other ones in the Marvel universe at the time,” he continued.
Spider-Man, which will be played by the young Tom Holland, will be featured first on “Civil War” before his standalone film in 2017. Marvel recently collaborated with Sony Pictures for the still untitled “SpiderMan” reboot.
He also said something about the much- awaited standalone movie remake.
“The most important thing as a standalone is relaunching Spider-Man in his own standalone movie with his own storylines that fits into this universe.”
Despite explaining how Peter Parker could be pivotal for the “Civil War,” Feige noted that the story will still focus on Captain America and will be “very much a sequel to the Winter Soldier.”
Meanwhile, it has been reported that actor Chris Evans, who plays The Cap, said that the “Civil War” film will be the completion of a Captain America Trilogy.
“It’s very much, in a certain way, the completion of a Captain America trilogy. I think one day you’ll look back and watch — Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Captain America: Civil War,” he told Screen Rant.
“Captain America: Civil War” premieres on May 6, 2016.
