Marvel Studios Characters Will Appear in "Spider-Man" Solo Film, Feige Confirms

Though it's unclear at this time which characters will make the jump, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed plans for Marvel Cinematic Universe characters to appear in 2017's standalone "Spider-Man" film.

"He is in the universe now, and the fun of the universe is that characters go back and forth," Feige told Entertainment Weekly. However, he didn't offer any clues as to who might join Spidey in his solo film; he simply confirmed that MCU characters would appear.

The new "Spider-Man" film -- which doesn't yet have an official title -- will star Holland in the title role, following the character's introduction in Marvel Studios' "Captain America: Civil War," which opens on May 6. It's the latest take on the iconic Marvel Comics character which has seen two previous incarnations at Sony, first played by Tobey Maguire and then by Andrew Garfield.

Last February, Sony and Marvel announced a deal to share live-action rights to the character, which were previously solely under Sony's control.

Spider-Man is scheduled to swing back into theaters in his own feature film on July 7, 2017.
