  1. I don't know how they'd possibly do it since SM isn't established in the MCU yet, but I'd love seeing tony outfit him with an Iron Spider suit...

    Most movie characters don't need to be established. They just show up.

    I'd like to hear Spider-Man reveal how Iron Man and Captain America are his role models with the latter inspiring his iconic blue and red outfit and the former inspiring him with his scientific endeavors and both of them inspiring him to become a hero. That'd be neat.

  2. Maybe they'll rely on Spiderman being such an iconic and well-known character, and bypass all the backstory. They can set the general story for the MCU: bitten by spider, Uncle Ben, Mary-Jane or Gwen Stacy, etc, but do it without a lengthy set-up.

  3. He could be established as one of the younger generation of heroes that are upcoming now. Great thing about Marvel establishing him first is that I don't need watch Uncle Ben die a third time.
