Captain America to mentor Spider-Man


Marvel fans may have Ant Man and Doctor Strange to pass the time, but the next big tentpole movie event in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is Captain America: Civil War which will see Tony Stark and Steve Rogers on opposite sides as Iron Man and Captain America. Oh, and Spider-Man will make his Marvel Cinematic debut too!

There’s been a lot of speculation as to how Spider-Man will fit into Captain America 3 given that it seemd Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther was going to assume the ‘caught in the middle’ role usually reserved for Spider-Man in the original comic book storyline. But now that Spidey’s back it’s possible that he’ll be the one caught between a vibranium shield and an Iron-Man suit, or a rock and a hard place.

This is something that both Robert Downey Jr and Chris Evans seem to be be hinting when asked about Spider-Man on the press rounds for Avengers: Age of Ultron. We’ve already seen Downey Jr hint that Iron Man might appear in Spider-Man’s solo movie, suggesting that Stark Industries could fund Spider-Man’s activities.

And now Chris Evans has hinted to IGN that he’d love to see Captain America having a direct influence on Spider-Man, although he was significantly more vague and non committal than Downey Jr.

"“Sure, I like seeing Cap play mentor to anybody, you know what I mean? He’s been through so much, and I think he’s a good man, so anytime he can take anybody under his wing I think would be great. I hope Marvel pulls that off.”"

Can you see the cogs for Civil War turning already? Because I can!
