Iron Man and Captain America May Appear In Marvel’s Spider-Man Film

Sony sharing the film rights to Spider-Man opened bold new possibilities for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. By making the deal with Disney, this meant that the webslinger could play in the Marvel sandbox, and it wasn’t long until it was announced that a new Spider-Man would be introduced into the MCU in Captain America: Civil War. Tom Holland will play the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, and is already prepping for his solo flick. Marisa Tomei is the only other actress confirmed for a role, she’ll play Aunt May. But as to who else could star in the film, that is still unknown.
But that isn’t stopping rumors from swirling. One of the first rumors to pop up surrounding Spidey’s upcoming solo film is that Iron Man and Captain America could make an appearance in it. Check out how this all started in the video below.
Before Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr.debuted the poster and trailer for Captain America: Civil War, the two talked about how they were returning to shoot in Atlanta, GA, after having already shot at the location for Civil War. Of course they wouldn’t give any details as to what they were shooting, leading many to believe that they’re returning to reprise their roles in the untitled Spider-Man film. Here’s the video.
It’s important to note that Spider-Man will be shooting in Atlanta, GA. Holland has confirmed this. Here’s what the actor told ComingSoon:
“We’re shooting in Atlanta for most of it, because they have studios there and I think it’s cheaper to build a New York set than it is to shoot here, because it’s going to be very expensive. We probably will end up here (in New York) for one week or two.”
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 would be the only other Marvel film that we know of that would be shooting in Atlanta, GA. It’s not likely these two will make an appearance in the film, as Guardians director James Gunn has ruled out that possibility. However, an appearance in the Spider-Man movie would make much more sense considering the three heroes have a strong connection to New York.
It’s still to early to tell or even confirm for that matter if Evans and Downey are going to be in Atlanta for Spider-Man specifically. If that were the case, I can’t imagine their roles being too big as it might overshadow the titular character. Still though, it will be just enough to solidify that Spider-Man is a part of the MCU.
Captain America: Civil War is due out May 6, 2016, and the untitled Spider-Man film is scheduled for a July 28, 2017 release.
