Between “Captain America: Civil War” and the upcoming “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” the wall-crawler’s reintroduction is in full swing. However, what comes after the 2017 solo movie isn’t exactly clear.
Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been building toward 2018’s “Avengers: Infinity War,” which will feature a sprawling cast, from Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man to Josh Brolin as Thanos to Brie Larson as Captain Marvel. But actor Tom Holland admits he’s not sure whether he’ll be part of the ensemble, either in “Infinity War” or the untitled fourth “Avengers” film.
“It’s all up in the air,” he said Saturday at the New York Film Festival premiere of “The Lost City of Z.” “I believe some sort of deal is in the mix, but I’m unclear as to what that deal is.”
The 20-year-old actor also addressed the issue of Spider-Man’s snug-fitting costume, saying, “The suit’s not the greatest thing,” he said, “but sometimes when it’s uncomfortable, you just have to remind yourself of the long list of actors that would love to be in that suit and you just go, ‘do you know what, fuck it. I’m the luckiest kid alive. I deserve to be here and I’m going to give it my best.’”
Production wrapped two weeks ago in New York City on “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” less than four months after cameras began rolling outside Atlanta. Directed by Jon Watts (“Cop Car,” “Clown”), the Sony Pictures/Marvel Studios joint production picks up after the events of “Captain America: Civil War,” as Holland’s Peter Parker attempts to balance his life as an ordinary high school student in Queens, New York, with fighting crime as Spider-Man.
Although few details are known about the plot, Marvel released concept art in July confirming the film’s primary antagonist is classic Spider-Man villain the Vulture, widely believed to be played by Michael Keaton.
The sprawling cast also features Marvel Cinematic Universe veterans Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, Marisa Tomei as May Parker and Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, joined by Zendaya, Tony Revolori, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Donald Glover, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Michael Chernus, Logan Marshall-Green, Michael Barbieri, Hannibal Buress and many more. Stan Lee will also have his traditional cameo.
“Spider-Man: Homecoming” arrives in theaters July 7, 2017. “Avengers: Infinity War” opens May 4, 2018.
