SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Could Totally Confuse The Marvel Cinematic Universe's Continuity

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Could Totally Confuse The Marvel Cinematic Universe's Continuity

Some new details on how Spider-Man: Homecoming is going to fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been revealed, but they could complicate how the wall-crawler fits into this world's timeline!

The Marvel Cinematic Universe moves in real-time, and while that means gaps between movies like Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Avengers: Age of Ultron results in there being a lot we don't see on the big screen, it's an easy way to keep track of what's going on in this shared universe. 

Spider-Man: Homecoming, however, will be shaking things up. We already know that the franchise will follow the Harry Potter movies by having each instalment set during a different year in high school, but in a recent interview, producer Eric Carroll revealed that even this first movie plays with the timeline.


"There will be some awkward chronology in that the movie comes out almost two years after Civil War, but we’re playing it like it’s a few months after Civil War. It hasn’t been years since Tony called him back. It came down to one of things we wanted to do was keep him in high school as long as possible. Let’s have him do something fun and different. Sony came to ourselves when we sat down and we thought, ‘Why do this version?’ And it is because we can really do a high school. Show that this is a young hero. Otherwise you have seen it all before…"

It sounds like Marvel will play fast and loose with where Spider-Man fits into the Marvel Cinematic Universe then. While over two years will have likely passed between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War for every other character, it will have just been a matter of weeks for Peter Parker. Honestly, this is something it's best not to think too much about, but it is interesting.
