Peter Parker's journey is going to be a long one.
It began in "Captain America: Civil War," continues in "Spider-Man: Homecoming," and will span across three more movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
"We are looking at a five-movie storyline — 'Civil War,' 'Homecoming,' 'Avengers: Infinity War,' untitled 'Avengers,' 'Homecoming 2' — or whatever we end up calling it — as an amazing five-story journey for Peter Parker," Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige told the Toronto Sun.
What happens in the upcoming movies will impact the story for the sequel to "Spider-Man: Homecoming."
"In the way that the events of 'Civil War' directly inform the opening of Homecoming and his state of mind as he goes back to high school, so too will the events of the next two 'Avengers movies' as he continues with high school," Feige explained.
And Spider-Man will be a pivotal character who helps usher in "Phase 4" of the MCU.
"This original 22-movie arc ends with the untitled 'Avengers' in May of 2019 and then two months later it will be Peter and 'Spider-Man' that usher us into the aftermath and how things proceed from there," he said.
It's unclear, though, if Spider-Man will be part of Phase 4, though, since Sony and Marvel's unusual deal to allow the character to be part of the MCU ends after "Homecoming's" sequel.
