Spider-Man: Homecoming is less than two weeks away from release and the buzz is good! Though the sequel to Homecoming isn’t due out until July 2019, you’ll still have two chances to see the character Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige calls “the jewel in the crown” before then. Spider-Man will appear, and likely have sizable roles due to his popularity, in next year’s Avengers: Infinity War and May 2019’s Avengers 4. But what will life look like for Peter Parker following Earth-shattering events the size of Infinity War?
Cinemablend asked Feige how Spider-Man will readjust to a less cosmic lifestyle after fighting threats like Thanos alongside the Avengers. Feige has this to say about what life for Peter will look like after Avengers 4:
“In Infinity War, we’ll showcase almost all aspects of the worlds we’ve established. What is exciting is that after Infinity War, and the untitled Avengers in May of 2019… everything will be very different, and the universe will have been radically altered after this 22-movie saga comes to its conclusion. And our first foray back into the MCU will be with Peter Parker, and through his eyes, and back on the ground level. And just as the events of Civil War impacted him greatly, when Tony [Stark] dropped him off and he had to go back to school, what in the heck is going to happen, and what is the state of the universe going to be, and how will he deal with it, when he starts his junior year in the next Homecoming?”
It’s great to hear Feige talk about how Spider-Man: Homecoming‘s sequel will be the first part of whatever Marvel plans to do in “Phase 4” (though I don’t think they are calling them “Phases” anymore), scaling down a bit after the two momentous Avengers films. This quote is also a nice reminder that Peter will be a junior in high school, post-Infinity War, not moving on as quickly from his high school years as his two Spider-Man predecessors. We already knew this was the case, but I can’t wait to watch Peter progress slowly though high school and face threats more akin to Vulture than Thanos.
What do you think about Feige’s comments about Spider-Man’s post Avengers 4 readjustment and adventure? Does it sound like Marvel Studios and Sony are still on the right track? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below!
