In a general press interview, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige gave a rundown on when films in Marvel's slate will be filming.

"We literally just crossed the halfway mark of '[Captain America:] Civil War' last week, it's day 42 or 43 of 80," said Feige, as reported by Collider. "We start filming 'Doctor Strange' in London in November. We start shooting 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' in February-March [2016]. We start filming 'Thor: Ragnarok' and 'Spider-Man' around the same time, around June of next year."

"Captain America: Civil War" opens on May 6, 2016; "Doctor Strange" opens November 4, 2016; "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" opens on May 5, 2017; "Thor: Ragnarok" opens on November 3, 2017; "Spider-Man" opens July 28, 2017


While talking with the LA Times, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed how he thinks their new Spider-Man franchise will differ from the previous two.

"Well, you see the casting right away. [Tom Holland's] younger by I think five or six or seven or eight years than either Tobey [Maguire] or Andrew [Garfield] when they were cast and that's very intentional," said Feige. "That the younger he was, the more truer he was to the original Spider-Man comic book stories and also the more unique and different he would be in comparison to the other Marvel heroes."

He continued: "The one thing that hasn't been able to be explored in the other five ['Spider-Man'] movies is his relationship to the broader Marvel Universe and that's something that was exciting to us. To go back to those Stan Lee, Steve Ditko origin tales of having him be younger and that dichotomy with dealing with the rest, and also in Brian Michael Bendis' 'Ultimate Spider-Man.'"
