The upcoming “Spider-Man” reboot will include cameos from other Marvel superheroes, the studio has confirmed.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed to EW that Spidey won’t be the only Marvel regular to make the jump to the Sony pic.
“[Spider-Man] is in the universe now, and the fun of the universe is that characters go back and forth,” said Feige.
Though the plot details of Marvel and Sony’s untitled “Spider-Man” film — which is set for a July 2017 release — are still under wraps, Tom Holland is confirmed to play Spider-Man and Marisa Tomei will star as Aunt May. Though details on her role have not been revealed, Zendaya is also confirmed to star in the actioner.
Directed by Jon Watts, the “Spider-Man” standalone movie will center on a teenage, high school-era Peter Parker. John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein will write the screenplay, with Feige and Amy Pascal attached to produce the superhero film. Production is scheduled to begin in this summer.
Holland will debut his Spider-Man in “Captain America: Civil War,” which hits theaters May 6. A recent trailer shows Iron Man calling upon Spidey to use his web shooters against Captain America, implying that Tom Holland’s character is on Team Iron Man in the film.
