Last week both Robert Downy Jr. and Chris Evans took time out of their busy schedules to drop by Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk about their upcoming film, Captain America; Civil War, where they dropped a bomb in everybody’s lap by finally showing off the long anticipated first trailer for the film. While our collective minds were all blown by the trailer, we may have all been too busy drooling to catch a little potential spoiler in regard to a bit more information on the future of their respective characters in the MCU.
In a seemingly benign bit of conversation, Chris Evans took a moment to complain a bit about the hot temperatures in Atlanta, where a good deal of Civil War was shot, to which RDJ let slip, “By the way, we are going to shoot in Atlanta again, you and I.”
Evans responded with, “I know, I’m ready, I’m ready.”
While this could be a reference to the upcoming Avengers; Infinity War shoot, the collective internet got to thinking and have instead decided that this could in fact be a reference to the upcoming Sony/Marvel collaborative reboot, Spider-Man, which Tom Holland, the actor portraying the titular Spider-Man, recently explained would be filmed in Atlanta.
While this could just be an insane internet theory, there’s actually a lot too this. Since it’s announcement, it’s been said that RDJ would in fact have some kind of major role in Spider-Man although to date, nothing has been confirmed. Following the events of Civil War, it wouldn’t be a stretch to think that Cap would also somehow factor in, especially if not all wounds have been healed following their fallout.
Other Marvel films that are getting ready to shoot, including Dr. Strange and Thor; Ragnarok, are not set to film in Atlanta, with the exception of James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but it’s been made extremely clear that movie would focus solely on it’s own characters and at this particular juncture would not include other characters from the larger MCU.
So, while this is currently a rumor, having Marvel’s big two cameo in the Spidey reboot would be one hell of a way to catch the web-slinger up in terms of the MCU, but we’re extremely curious to see how it plays out. Early reports explained that the upcoming movie, directed by Jon Watts, would be Marvel’s attempt at a John Hughes style coming of age story so how Captain America and Iron Man fit into that format, but that will also depend on how Civil War wraps itself up.
So what do you think? Are you hesitant to have Cap and ol’ Shell Head join Spidey’s solo movie or you just excited to be getting more of them? As always, drop your thoughts, comments, or crazy fan theories into the comments section below.Follow Us:
