We already knew Spider-Man was going to show up in Captain America: Civil War, especially since that last trailer made it really real. What we didn't realize, is that some of The Avengers would be showing up in Marvel Studios' first standalone Spider-Man movie coming out in the summer of 2017.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed to EW that the Spider-Man reboot starring Tom Holland as the young web-slinger will feature other characters from the Marvel universe (although he wouldn't say which ones).

 “He is in the universe now, and the fun of the universe is that characters go back and forth,” Feige said.

It's unusual, to say the least, to see major character crossover action in a Marvel superhero's first movie. Of course, there were all of those Spider-Man movies already made by Sony, so maybe Marvel feels like we're already familiar enough with Spider-Man's whole deal that they can afford to let him share some screen time with another one of the big dogs. 

There aren't any details out there yet about the plot of Holland's first Spider-Man film, although we have an idea what the storyline will be that brings him into Civil War as an ally of Iron Man's. cited a "source close to the film" saying that Holland's Spidey idolized Tony Stark as a kid and simply couldn't resist the offer to join his hero when presented with the opportunity.

Civil War comes out May 6. Spider-Man will be released July 7 of next year.
