Rumor: Spider-Man To Appear In Captain Marvel 2?
Will Peter Parker Team Up With Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel 2?
As you know, there are plenty of Marvel Cinematic Universe on the distant horizon. However, figuring out how exactly the next phase of the MCU will shake out is an exercise in futility.
But it is fun to think about.
Case in point: The latest rumor drops Spider-Man in the middle of a Marvel “Secret Invasion” scenario; wherein Peter Parker teams up with Captain Marvel.
Carol Danvers and Peter Parker had a memorable first meeting in Avengers: Endgame. In the midst of battle, the heroine appeared to take the Infinity Gauntlet from Spidey; he was clearly in awe of her. A further team-up would be a lot of fun to see, then. And it seems there’s a good chance of a Cap’n Marvel/Spider-Man partnership happening in Captain Marvel 2 in a couple of summers’ time.
Scooper Mikey Sutton shared his latest bit of intel on his Geekosity Facebook page; something corroborated by The Cosmic Wonder YouTube channel. Sutton claims that Marvel is planning for Tom Holland to play a key role as the wall-crawler in the upcoming sequel. As he’s previously told us, CM2 will tackle the Secret Invasion comics storyline. It’s been said elsewhere that this event is being adapted for a TV series but according to Sutton, the show will act as a direct lead-in into the movie, which will properly handle the nuts and bolts of the arc.
As part of this, Sutton says the Super-Skrull will appear. In contrast to the comics, where the villain has the powers of the Fantastic Four, this time he’ll have the web-head’s abilities. The scooper points out that the inspiration here is Marvel Team-Up #62, which saw Carol and Peter fight the Super-Skrull together. He also says that the studio set up this connection by deliberately dropping the Skrulls in Spider-Man: Far From Home‘s post-credits scene.
Fun To Speculate on Captain Marvel 2
Again — and as I have said regarding other movie rumors — why not enjoy the speculation; knowing, of course, full well that the idea remains, well, an idea, utile we see it on the screen.
