Ever since Spider-Man came aboard the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it was rumored that the the web crawler would still be in high school. Marvel’s Kevin Feige confirmed to the press during the Avengers: Age of Ultron tour that Peter Parker will indeed be a high school student in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War movie.
“We want to play with Spider-Man in the high school years because frankly there’ve been five Spider-Man films and the amazing thing about it is, even though there’ve been five Spider-Man films, there are so many things from the comics that haven’t been done yet. Not just characters or villains or supporting characters, but sides to his character. The most obvious being the ‘young, doesn’t quite fit in’ kid before his powers, and then the fella that puts on a mask and swings around and fights bad guys and doesn’t shut up, which is something we want to play with and we’re excited about.”
Latino-Review is reporting that Marvel Studios has cast the role of Carol Danvers AKA Captain Marvel and it looks like they are keeping it top secret. The site reports that they’ve been told, “we will first see her in #AVENGERS #AgeofUltron as originally written in previous drafts of the screenplay. In terms of the standalone film, the Marvel brain trust has blocked out the plot & story with the intention of bringing an established writer to write the script.”
Chris Hemsworth was the host of last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live and he participated in a sketch involving Thor and the rest of The Avengers celebrating their victory over Ultron.
