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.

Spiderman Tells That He Is Slinging Into More Solo Films

Well Spidey himself Tom Holland at one point had said who he would LIKE to go up against or team up with in future films but never really directly said if he would be back for solo sequels. Well now we have a definitive response and it’s YES Spiderman will have two more solo films after HOMECOMING.

During an interview with French site Allocine, Peter Parker actor Tom Holland appeared to let slip that there is indeed a third installment on the radar:

“There is still plenty of room to see Peter grow up Parker and especially Spider-Man in the next two movies, and at the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming, the story is definitely not complete, I’m really looking forward to exploring how it will grow, [and to] see what will happen after puberty. Yes, [they’re] going to be exciting movies.”

Just to be certain, the site asked Holland to clarify his words, to which he responded: “Yes, there will be Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming 3. Now, you know, sorry, Marvel, oops!”

Though this has obviously yet to be made official, Holland’s comments do seem like pretty solid confirmation.

Not a huge surprise, perhaps, but there was always the possibility that the deal between Marvel and Sony was only going to allow for two solo movies, so it’s nice to know for sure that this won’t be the case.

Spider-Man Homecoming: Zendaya’s Character Revealed

At this point, you should know that “spoiler alert” is all over this one, so if you don’t want to know who Zendaya is going to be playing in the new Spider-Man: Homecoming movie, leave now!

…We’re serious!

…Last chance

…According to the novelization of the movie which is always released before the movie and often doles out a few spoilers, Zendaya’s character has been given a first and last name. That name is Michelle Toomes. Yes, Toomes, as in Adrian Toomes daughter. This adds even more of a spark of intrigue to the movie, as we’ve seen interactions between Peter and Michelle in trailers, so you can only assume her being the Vulture’s daughter is going to matter. Now we know why they hid who Zendaya was playing this whole time. Spider-Man: Homecoming premieres on July 7th, everywhere!

We were told we’re getting it and now we have it. Its a brand new trailer for Spiderman-Homecoming starring Tom Holland as the Web slinger, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron man and also Michael Keaton as Adrian Toombs/The Vulture.

We see Spidey,post Captain America Civil War returning back to “normal” life as a regular teenager but now trying to deal with a new “local” threat. The action is non stop in this trailer and makes the anticipation for the July 7th release even higher.

The First Official Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailer Is Here!

Do we even need to say anything here? Obviously this has everything – a heavy dose of Robert Downey, Jr as Tony Stark, and our first look at Michael Keaton as the Vulture. This will obviously lead off episode 49 of our podcast, but until then, check it out!

“Hamilton” creator wants to be apart of the MCU

The man at the center of one of many Twitter wars with the President-Elect now wants to potentially go to war with some of the Earth’s Mightiest heroes .

Lin-Manuel Miranda the creator of the hit play “Hamilton: An American Musical” has said on the podcast Meet The Movie Press reveals that he apparently really wants to play Carnage. “He said if Disney and Marvel were looking at doing a Maximum Carnage movie or bringing Carnage in as a character, he wants to be Carnage,” co-host Simon Thompson explained. “That’s a goal of his.” It’s somewhat hard to imagine the often jolly Miranda playing the crazy, murderous Cletus Kasady, but perhaps his wish is derived from fandom and a desire to stretch his acting muscles.

Miranda now is deeply embedded in the Disney machine, so if he wants a part in a Marvel movie it might not be that hard to get one. (We’re imagining this could be orchestrated with just a quick call from John Lasseter to Kevin Feige.) In fact, it’s almost surprising, come to think of it, that he wasn’t cast as a cool teacher in Spider-Man: Homecoming, which has enlisted every other Internet fave.

I know we here at the Trusty Sidekick would love to see that. What about you all?
