Kevin Fiege Says No Spider-Man In Avengers: Age Of Ultron Tag


Fans of the mid-credits and post-credits scenes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe are starting to get just a little bummed out when it comes to Avengers: Age of Ultron. First came word from director Joss Whedon that there’s nothing at the very end of the credits this time around. Then Marvel Studios head Kevin Fiege joined in by shooting down one of the most buzzed about possibilities for the mid-credits scene or tag.

I’m talking about seeing Spider-Man before he makes what us presumed to be his MCU debut in Captain America: Civil War next year. The tag would be the perfect place for Spidey to first pop up — even without Marvel having cast the part yet, since he could simply be featured in costume for a quick shot — and one that would jive with Whedon’s assertion that at least one or two suprise characters would show up in Age of Ultron in some form.

Alas, unless Marvel is waiting until the very last minute to do something, we won’t be seeing Spider-Man at all. Collider asked Fiege about a Spider-Man tag straight up and he simply shook his head and said no:

That’s the very definition of an uncategorical denial. Sorry Spider-Man fans, you’re going to have to wait until 2016.

Hmm … unless Fiege was being extremely literal and just shooting down the “Spidey in the tag” speculation and the wall-crawler shows up before the credits start rolling. Nah, surely not. Right?
