Mega Rumor: Spider-Man joining MCU with ‘Avengers: Infinity War Part 1’
Don’t. Don’t even fucking joke around with me on this one. Don’t even fucking play me, Latino Review!
Today’s juicy rumor comes from the land of Marvel. We all know about the talks Sony and Marvel Studios had over the last year about what to do with Spider-Man. Marvel wanted him back. Sony was open to sharing after The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Both sides discussed it, but as far as we know an agreement could not be reached. The original plan was for the web-slinger to appear in 2016′s Captain America: Civil War. For now, as far as we know, Spider-Man remains at Sony, maybe appearing in The Sinister Six or The Amazing Spider-Man 3, if those movies even happen.
Well, the latest rumor doesn’t know what’s happening with Spider-Man at Sony but believes the company was able to work out a deal with Marvel. But since Captain America: Civil War will be in production very soon, the next opportunity for the character to appear is Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 in 2018. Which, supposedly, is what’s going to happen. Read more about the Spider Man Avengers 3 rumor below.
The rumor comes from Latino Review, a site well-known for its ability to land bing superhero scoops. Sometimes they get to the news too early and it doesn’t work out; often, it does. Still, this is such a huge jump, we’re still going to continue to classify it as a rumor.
Their article has a lot of details about how Marvel’s Phase Three plays out and how Spider-Man will fit in. If you want to read those details, please do, but be aware they involve some MASSIVE possible spoilers I myself was kind of upset I read. They involve fates of major characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that kind of thing. I don’t want to get into specifics because it’s all potentially so huge.
But their declaration is plain and clear: “Spider-Man IS in [Avengers: Infinity War Part 1], the Sony deal went through.
