We have no clue how Captain America: Civil War will shake out, though we have a pretty good idea of what to expect. Be that as it may, it doesn’t sound like the breakup between Iron Man and Captain America will last long, as the two heroes could show up in the solo Spider-Man movie in 2017.
While promoting the Civil War trailer on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans were both on hand to discuss the footage, which gave us our first look at the next big Marvel movie. And while much of the conversation was focused on Civil War itself, Downey Jr. may have let slip Marvel’s upcoming plans.
“By the way, we are going to shoot in Atlanta again, you and I,” Downey Jr. said, to which Evans replied, “I know, I’m ready. I’m ready.”
Now, you can spin this one of two ways: One, the two might be going back to Atlanta to re-shoot some scenes for Civil War, which wrapped up filming not that long ago. Or, two, both heroes are going to shoot scenes for Spider-Man, which actor Tom Holland already revealed will film primarily in Atlanta. Coincidence? We don’t think so.
Of course, we have no clue how prominently the two Avengers will feature in Spider-Man’s solo flick (if at all), and we don’t know what roles they’ll play. Ant-Man successfully incorporated Falcon into its story without making him the focal point. My guess is we’ll see something similar in Spider-Man.
If Captain America does appear in the solo Spider-Man flick, it means the character won’t meet the same fate he did in the Civil War comics. You can probably infer what I’m getting at without me completely spoiling the conclusion. In any case, it sure sounds like both Captain America and Iron Man will be quite busy as we move past Civil War and toward Infinity War.
Captain America: Civil War is set for a May 6, 2016 release, while Spider-Man is currently scheduled to hit theaters on July 28, 2017.
