It's safe to say that Spider-Man is one of the hottest topics in the world of Marvel right now. After making his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in last year's Captain America: Civil War, the web-slinger's first in-universe solo film, Spider-Man: Homecoming, will debut on July 7th.
With the character (played by Tom Holland) becoming a fan favorite, some are already wondering how significantly he factors into next year's MCU epic Avengers: Infinity War. Well, it appears we have an answer, thanks to Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige.
During a recent interview with Fandango, Feige revealed that the character's screentime will be very similar to what audiences saw in Civil War.
"I think it might feel bigger a little bit because of Homecoming and because of what people know from it," Feige revealed, "but it’s about on par with [Civil War]."
With Homecoming introducing a whole slew of supporting characters into the MCU, is there a chance that any of them could reappear in Infinity War? Feige, as well as Sony exec Amy Pascal, chose to be vague.
"There's a pretty big crew already in those movies," Feige explained, "but you might keep an eye out." Pascal joined in, saying "Yeah, you never know."
We’ll find out when Avengers: Infinity War premieres May 4, 2018.

As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment - the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
Avengers: Infinity War is described by Marvel Studios as the culmination of everything in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since Iron Man in 2008. The movie is filming now under directors Anthony and Joe Russo, from a screenplay by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.
The expansive confirmed cast includes Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bethany, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Benedict Wong, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Pom Klementieff, and Josh Brolin as the villain Thanos.
