With the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming just around the corner, fans are already looking ahead to the character’s appearance in next year’s Avengers: Infinity War but it doesn’t sound like we’ll see much of the character. According to Marvel president Kevin Feige, Spidey’s role in the next Avengers movie will be similar in size to his small cameo in Captain America: Civil War.
See what Feige said below:
I think it might feel bigger a little bit because of Homecoming and because of what people know from it, but it’s about on par with [Civil War].
It’s easy to understand why Spidey will have a smaller role in Avengers: Infinity War. This is going to be the most crowded superhero movie of all time, and the directors will want to focus on the core Avengers lineup and only briefly gift audience with other characters within the universe. It’s likely that characters like Spider-Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy will take a backseat to the major Avengers.
