Could 2017′s ‘Spider-Man’ Film Also Feature Captain America and Iron Man?

For months, people just assumed that the heavily-rumored partnership between Disney/Marvel and Sony to introduce Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, was just a far away dream. Until suddenly it wasn’t anymore, and not only did we have a new Peter Parker/Spider-Man, but the character would also be making his MCU debut in next year’s Captain America: Civil War, with the promise of not only a 2017 standalone Spider-Man film, but also future collaborations and interactions between our friendly neighborhood wall crawler and the Avengers.

While Tom Holland’s iteration of the iconic character was absent from the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War, Holland has been talking briefly about his time on the set during his press rounds for Ron Howard’s In the Heart of the Sea, promising that the character’s introduction into the MCU would not disappoint.

However, the Spider-Man actor also revealed that the 2017 standalone film would be shooting in Atlanta, Georgia, for the most part, which is also the same location that a majority of Captain America: Civil War was filmed as well. Following Holland’s recent comments and the Civil War trailer debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! too, the folks over at, recently spotted that during the trailer’s premiere, Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans talked about filming in the movie in Atlanta, and after the two jokingly complained about the southern heat in July, Downey commented that,  “By the way, we are going to shoot in Atlanta again, you and I,”  with Evans responding, “I know, I’m ready, I’m ready.”

Check out the full video below:

Now, it should be noted that neither Evans nor Downey Jr. mention the film’s title specifically. However, the only other MCU film slated to shoot in Atlanta at this time is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, with both Thor: Ragnarok and Doctor Strange seeming to opt for other locations, and Spider-Man is the only film that makes the most sense as of now where the two characters could appear together. Although Avengers: Infinity War is a possibility as well, but it seems too far away for a shooting location to already be slated.

This makes sense too because the big reason that Sony made the deal with Marvel in the first place was so they could use the other Marvel characters in their films, and after the relationship that will already be established in Civil War next year, it doesn’t seem out of the realm of possibility that the studios may want to help this reboot by promising things Spider-Man fans have never seen onscreen before. Specifically, him interacting with the two leaders of the Avengers.

Captain America: Civil War is set to hit theatres on May 6th, 2016, while Spider-Man will premiere on July 28th, 2017.

    I have a feeling they were talking about Infinity War. Earlier this year Evans said that they would be filming Infinity War starting in the fall or winter of 2016, so I think Downey was referring to that.
