Kevin Feige Confirms Spider-Man’s Absence In Avengers: Age Of Ultron; Discusses Why Captain Marvel Was Cut


Press junkets for Avengers: Age Of Ultron began this past week, with the stars, director and producers all geared up to address a whole manner of questions revolving around the superhero sequel. One topic high on that list of inquiry is the little matter of Spider-Man. Since his reabsorption into the MCU was confirmed earlier this year, the web has been plagued with constant chatter about the webslinger’s first appearance. Of course, he’s been the subject of his own two franchises over at Sony, but with the studio striking a deal with his home studio – Marvel – the future iteration of Spidey is positioned to be the very best yet.

With that in mind, the folks over at Collider asked Marvel creative head Kevin Feige about one particular rumor: would Peter Parker appear in the post-credits sequence for Ultron? It’s been commonly assumed that no, he won’t show up in Ultron because he’s being saved for a fleshed-out introduction in Civil War. Also, Feige and director Joss Whedon both went on the record last week stating that there’s no “post-post-credits” sequence, just a little epilogue tag before the film cuts to black. Still, when rumors persist, they need addressing.

And so, during their interview with Feige the matter was brought up and answered as we expected. Spider-Man is definitely NOT appearing in Age Of Ultron. Could this be a shade to throw over the fact that there IS a post-credits scene with the young superhero at its center? Or is Feige telling the truth?
