Piecing together clues from various actors’ statements, Comicbook.com supposes Captain America and Iron May be showing up in the solo Spider-Man film Marvel and Sony are co-producing.
They note a seemingly innocuous quote from Robert Downey Jr. on last Monday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live in which the actor said to Chris Evans, “By the way, we are going to shoot in Atlanta again, you and I.”
“I know, I’m ready, I’m ready,” Evans replied.
Until recently Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was the only Marvel film scheduled to shoot in Atlanta, Georgia. Spider-Man is now said to be shooting there, according to a recent Superhero Hype interview with star Tom Holland. The actor noted the city was chosen because “they have studios there and I think it’s cheaper to build a New York set than it is to shoot here, because it’s going to be very expensive. We probably will end up here (in New York) for one week or two.”
Are Downey and Evans part of the expense? Comicbook.com noted there is “a lot riding on Sony’s second relaunch of the Spider-Man franchise” and it might prudent to include Marvel’s biggest cinematic stars to buoy the webcrawler’s new status quo.
Of course, this is conjecture, but considering Spider-Man’s upcoming appearance in Captain America: Civil War, why wouldn’t a couple of Avengers want to stop by his solo outing and say hello? Hmm. Does make the solo Spider-Man film seem like an uncomfortable sitcom spin-off from the 1980s, though.
