Although it was pretty much a given that our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man would be swinging into Avengers: Infinity War, Tom Holland has taken it a step (swing?) further and confirmed that we'll definitely be seeing the webslinger in the hotly anticipated Marvel movie.
The reveal comes via a Tweet by Tom Holland Italia. Holland apparently confirmed the news in an interview with Vogue Italia (thus the original text is in Italian) that he is set to reprise his role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the epic superhero team-up. The news comes hot on the heels of Zoe Saldana confirming that Gamora will join her fellow Guardians of the Galaxy teammate Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) in helping Earth's Mightiest Heroes take on Thanos (Josh Brolin). Check it out:
It's way too early to tell just how big (or small) Spidey's role will be in the upcoming cosmic conflict between the Avengers and the Mad Titan as production on the movie is just ramping up, though I'm sure everyone is hoping it'll be a little more substantial than the one he played in Captain America: Civil War. (Though, to be fair, I thought they made good use of him. It was
an Avengers a Cap movie, after all.)
However, with a cast of characters that already includes Iron Man, Captain America, Doctor Strange, the Winter Soldier, Ant-Man, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Nick Fury, Star-Lord, Gamora and more (there are even rumors that Liv Tyler could reprise her role of Betty Ross from The Incredible Hulk), things in Infinity War are already way crowded. But, hey -- the world will need ALL THE SUPERHEROES to defeat Thanos.
Avengers: Infinity War will open on May 4, 2018. Until then, you'll be able to catch up with Holland's wallcrawler in Spider-Man: Homecoming on July 7.
