If you have had concerns about Spider-Man's future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you can breathe a short sigh of relief now. Over the last month, conflicting reports have surfaced which indicated that Peter Parker might not stick around the Avengers for long. However, during a press gathering earlier today, the president of Marvel Studios stressed the company still plenty of plans in store of the web-slinging hero.
So, for now, it looks like Tom Holland's take on the vigilante is secure.
ComicBook's Brandon Davis was in attendance at the press event, and it was there that Kevin Feige said Spider-Man is confirmed to appear in the fourth Avengers film as well as a sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming. The character will get his first solo outing this summer with the first Homecoming feature, and Holland is also part of the extensive cast of Avengers: Infinity War.
However, it does not look like Marvel is extending its reach to other Spider-Man spinoff features. At the event, Feige said the Avengers film and Homecoming sequel are all Marvel Studios has planned with Sony Pictures. Well, for now, that is. Feige also said Marvel Studios has no part in the upcoming features starring Venom, Silver Sable, and Black Cat.
