‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Director Confirms Involvement with ‘Avengers: Infinity War’
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is absolutely huge, with several movies already beginning production and due out over the next year and a half, including solo movies Spider-Man: Homecoming and Black Panther, and Ant-Man and the Wasp, due to begin production later this year with their new logo.
However, the biggest movie coming to screens in the MCU will be coming in 2018; Avengers: Infinity War.
The vast majority of the characters across the MCU are slated to appear in this, and the currently unnamed Avengers 4 sequel, but the crew members will also be involved in the process. Joe and Anthony Russo are the official directors of the next two Avengers titles, and Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn is also involved. Now, Jon Watts, director of the highly anticipated Spider-Man: Homecoming, has told Fandango that he will be involved with the production of the massive MCU crossover.
Watts says: “Yeah, everyone is aware of what’s happening on all the other movies. So if one thing shifts, you make sure it doesn’t have dramatic repercussions for your movie. But yeah, that’s all on the Russos right now.”
Spider-Man: Homecoming released its official trailer earlier this week. Following the events of Captain America: Civil War, the movie will tell a coming of age story of Peter Parker trying to find himself somewhere between hero and teenager, balancing school and vigilante-ism – until The Vulture emerges, and threatens everything young Peter holds close.
Spider-Man: Homecoming will swing into theatres July 7th 2017, and Avengers: Infinity War is currently scheduled for release on May 4th 2018.
