The initial reactions to Captain America: Civil War are now out, and some are saying it is the best comic book movie they’ve ever seen. One noticeable thing in most reviews is that Spider-Man is not only in the film a lot more than reviewers expected, but he steals the show as well. That’s a rather good thing, too, as it has now been revealed that other Marvel characters are going to appear in the new, solo Spider-Man movie.
CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR is literally going to make all the money.

There is plenty of action. There is a tangible storyline. There is also a lot of Spider-Man. Yes, there is much more Spider-Man than anyone could have expected, and it’s being said that he is perfection.
First things first: we finally have the perfect Spider-Man and the greatest Peter Parker.

It truly is great that Marvel has finally been able to get Spider-Man right. Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield had versions of the web-slinger that each had some good things and some really bad things, but fans never latched on to either one of them.
Casting Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man meant that not only was he meant to be a young kid in the costume, but he truly is a young kid in a costume. That’s the way things are supposed to be, and now that’s exactly what has happened.
A fantastic reaction to Spider-Man is great for the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and it bodes very well for the solo Spider-Man movie which is currently set to sewing into theaters on July 7, 2017, if all goes well.
Yes, others from the MCU will be joining in on the fun. Marvel characters are going to appear in the Spider-Man movie, and it has been officially confirmed.
“He is in the universe now, and the fun of the universe is that characters go back and forth.”
It isn’t known if Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, or Chris Evans’ Captain America, or what other character will show up, but it could be anyone. The problem with speculation about RDJ is that he’s only under contract for Civil War and both parts of Avengers: Infinity War.
Similar deals are in place for many members of the Avengers cast, but a contract or two could be amended to include another appearances. It also depends on how much money is going to be put forth by Marvel and Disney to get the actors back.
For now, the identity of the Marvel cameos in Spider-Man are being kept under wraps, but the universe is going to keep growing and getting bigger.
Spider-Man finding his way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe is something that fans have wanted for a long time, and now it has finally happened. While his introduction in Captain America: Civil War is a great start, it will be Spidey’s solo movie that truly puts Tom Holland on the map. Until then, rumors will keep web-slinging as to what other characters will cameo alongside him.
