Spiderman Has Been in the MCU for a While Now

With Spiderman:Homecoming just a week away not only is the anticipation building but we are starting to get a bit more information about Peter Parker. Now we initially thought that our first introduction to Peter in the MCU came in Captain America:Civil War but the web-slinger himself Tom Holland has delivered another tidbit of information.

Remember in Iron Man 2 when the hammer drones went rogue at the Stark Expo? Well there is a belief that the youngster wearing an Iron Man mask who stands up to one of Justin Hammer’s drones is, in fact, the future Spider-Man.

In a recent interview, the actor revealed that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has told him that the kid saved by Tony Stark is indeed Peter.

“I can confirm that is Peter Parker. I can confirm that as of today. I literally had a conversation with Kevin Feige only 20 minutes ago. Maybe I’ve just done a big, old spoiler, but it’s out there now. It’s cool,” he added. “I like the idea that Peter Parker has been in the universe since the beginning.”

Whether or not that was meant to be Peter at the time is hard to say and it’s something that only Feige and Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau probably know for sure. Either way, this is an incredible Easter Egg and one hell of a retcon which gives Spidey a very special place in the MCU. We’ll have to wait until next week to find out whether or not this moment is actually referenced in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

James Gunn will Help Oversee the Marvel Cosmic Universe

In a move that pretty sure would never upset anyone, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 1 & Vol 2 director James Gunn has said that he will help to oversee the Marvel Cosmic Universe after Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3.

Back in April , he first brought up that he would return to helm Guardians Vol 3. Now he has told to IGN that he will not only be at the helm of Vol. 3, but he will also work with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige to help oversee the future of the entire Cosmic Universe wing of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the post-Avengers: Infinity War phase of the MCU.

“We talk about it all the time,” Gunn said of his role in the overall Marvel Cosmic Universe. “It’s already a part of what I’m doing with Marvel and the conversations that Kevin and I have every day. When we’re talking about ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 3,’ and that story, that’s a story that will lead to other stories. It’s innate to the DNA that that’s the end of a trilogy but it’s the beginning of a whole other element of the Marvel Cosmic universe. That’s a part of what I’m doing now.”

Gunn had previously stated that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will take place years after Vol. 2 and will conclude the story of this iteration of the Guardians, and serve as a launching pad for new Marvel characters that will permeate the MCU for years afterwards.

This is some amazing information after hearing that the MCU can and will span into different individual universes being the aforementioned Marvel Cosmic Universe and the Marvel Quantum Universe.

The Hulk Does Cribs: Where The Magic Happens

Even a giant green monster has to sleep sometime, right? We uncovered pictures on where the Hulk will be laying down his mighty head in Thor: Ragnarok. It appears it’s the skull of a giant beast. No telling whether he killed it himself or whether that’s just where the champ gets to rest no matter who it is, but it looks pretty epic!

This all star cast is loading up with more and more talent by the day

Marvel Studios is looking for Avengers: Infinity War and the subsequent followup Untitled Avengers to work as a closing for Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With 18 films due to be out by the time Infinity War rolls around, there is no shortage of characters at the disposal of directors Joe and Anthony Russo. They’ve already showed an ability to manage a large number of characters in Captain America: Civil War, but Infinity War will be a test on an entirely different level.

Not only will the Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, and other solo heroes be involved in the fight against Thanos, but secondary MCU characters from movies past have also been linked to Infinity War. While many may still be waiting for TV characters to crossover as well, one more cosmic entity may have just been confirmed to appear.

MCU Exchange is reporting that Josh Brolin posted (and has since deleted) an Instagram video discussing what scenes he will be shooting next for Infinity War and among the cast members he listed to be working with was Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), and the surprising reveal of Benicio Del Toro, who plays Taneleer Tivan aka The Collector. Del Toro made is debut as the character in the post-credit scene of Thor: The Dark World and later appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy, but no further appearances had been confirmed until now. To make this report even more believable, Del Toro was recently spotted in Atlanta – where Marvel is currently filming Infinity War.

With so many other characters set to appear, it is none too surprising that The Collector will also be making an appearance in the film. After all, he does still have the Aether (the Reality Stone) and Thanos will have to retrieve this artifact in order to completely power the Infinity Gauntlet. What is interesting however, is that the scene mentioned by Brolin also involves Gamora and Star-Lord. Neither Thanos nor The Collector are set to appear in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, so this could indicate that the Guardians get involved with stopping Thanos well before he reaches Earth.

The Collector could also play a larger role depending on what other secrets he has stashed away in his massive collection. Even with one of his bases now destroyed, he does potentially have Adam Warlock’s cocoon in his grasp. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is laying the foundation for Warlock to appear; and if Peter Dinklage is playing his sidekick Pip the Troll (as his hair may have revealed), then having The Collector release Warlock later on in the movie could further make his appearance that much more important.
