Admit it: you were pretty psyched when you saw that Tony Stark was going to feature heavily in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming, and then clapped your hands with glee when you saw Captain America in a gym PSA during the trailer. Maybe the two of them managed to talk things out after the events of Captain America: Civil War.
But sadly, it seems like that is still a pipe dream. In a new interview with the UK’s RadioTimes.com during a press tour for his latest movie, Gifted, Chris Evans himself clarified that his part in Homecoming is minimal:
“Spider-Man? I have no idea what it’s about…I really don’t. I didn’t read the script, I did that [cameo]…recently…I have literally NO idea what it’s about. I have no idea.”
Woah. That’s a lot of denials for one question. If I didn’t know better, I’d say the (metaphorical) lady doth protest too much. Then again, Marvel’s secrecy is practically legendary now. One can only imagine what the casts’ NDA clauses are like.
Even if Evans is lying due to contractual obligations, I do think it’s unlikely that they’re going to include two of the most popular Avengers in a movie that’s meant to welcome Peter Parker back into the fold. I’m looking forward to a nice, in-depth look into what makes the MCU’s Peter Parker tick, and what his motivations are going to be like, and I don’t need Cap’s biceps – as much as I love them – making an appearance for that.
