Marvel nerds rejoice! Our speculation has finally proven right!
Kevin Feige, in an interview with EW.com has confirmed that since Spider-Man exists in the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe and despite him still being a Sony-Licensed property, heroes from the MCU will appear in his July 2017 film!
As he told the magazine,
“He is in the universe now, and the fun of the universe is that characters go back and forth.”
In other words, the door goes both ways!
Sony loaned Spider-Man to Marvel and Marvel Studios, in turn, will loan some of their characters for those films!
Now if we could just figure out how to convince Fox Studios to play ball and let Marvel “borrow” the Fantastic Four the entire world would rejoice with unequivocal joy.
There is no word on who exactly the character (or characters) will be, but it sounds as if the field of possibilities is wide open.
Big Bertha and Mister Immortal — no.
But Squirrel Girl? That’s an absolute necessity.
