MCU is approaching the culmination of almost everything that has happened as of now as Kevin Feige has put it. The studio has assembled magnificent casts under a roof and created a mega comic-book event as phase 3. The Infinity war movies are the most awaited superhero movies of the 21st century. Fans want to witness the grandest event called Infinity War.
MCU will expand to 70 comic-book characters who will appear in Avengers Infinity War films. The comic-book story will remain the same where Thanos located the Infinity Gems. In Avengers 3, he will assemble the gems and create a powerful Infinity gauntlet and cause a catastrophe, and then in Avengers 4, the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy will join forces and fight the villain.
The Marvel Studios and Sony collaborated and launched a new Spiderman franchise with Tom Holland as the new Spiderman. The movie exceeded expectations of critics and proved to be a blockbuster Marvel movie. It is based on “Spiderman Homecoming,” the comic was launched in 1990’s, and the idea was to re-invent Spiderman character which aligns with the present vision of Sony Pictures.
The talks of a sequel have begun with Amy Pascal who has revealed the timeline of the next Spiderman movie. She said:
“What I think we should focus on is this Spider-Man who started in Civil War and then has this movie, and then will be in the Avengers movie. And we are starting now the next one which will start a few minutes after Avengers 4 wraps as a story.”
Marvel president, Kevin Feige confirmed that Spiderman will return for Avengers 4 was not a surprise as Spiderman is now linked to MCU. Since it is established that Spiderman sequel will begin after few minutes of Avengers 4, fans will look out for potential easter-eggs in Infinity war movies.
Amy Pascal in an interview with Fandom clarified that there is no crossover of Spiderman and Marvel heroes, but they do exist in the same reality. She said:
“First, there is Spider-Man happily in the place where he’s supposed to be which is in the Marvel Universe. I think everything comes from that. This is the signpost, the tentpole, the signature and…the other movies that Sony’s going to make, in their relationship to this (MCU) Spider-Man, take place in this new world. Although you’re not going to see them in the Marvel Universe, it’s in the same reality.”
It seems that Spiderman might not be alone in MCU from comic world, the IMDb added Tiffany Espensen’s Cindy Moon in a cast for Avengers Infinity War. She was cast as Cindy and fans were speculating over her surname. It is clear that Cindy Moon is Peter Parker’s classmate who was also bitten by a radioactive spider.
The Homecoming movie did not reveal her powers when she was trapped in a lift as she wants to remain hidden. In Infinity War she may reveal herself as “Silk” with superpowers.
Marvel top boss, Kevin Feige hints at a possibility of Miles Morales in the MCU.
Heroic’s Hollywood’s Umberto “El Mayimbe” Gonzalez had reported that Miles Morales would feature in an upcoming animated film that will hit theaters in 2018. A quote from Sony Pictures chairman, Tom Rothman from last year’s CinemaCon are claims that the movie may introduce Miles Morales version of a web-slinger.
“The film will exist independently of the projects in the live-action Spider-Man universe, all of which are continuing.”
The animation movie is written and produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
There is more to this story as Donald Glover’s character Aaron Davis features in a deleted scene released by Trenzing Indonesia Youtube Channel. The scene is after Spiderman has webbed David to the car and he is trying to free himself. He called his nephew who is Miles Morales and this confirms that he is part of a larger MCU.
Kevin Feige had this to say about the presence of Miles Morales in the MCU:
“In the meantime, I think Miles is a big part of the animated movie that Sony’s making. But where we go…we definitely want you to go ‘[Miles] is there. He’s there somewhere.’”
Well, let’s hope MCU does justice to both of these beloved Spiderman characters in Infinity war.
