In an interview with the Toronto Sun, Marvel Cinematic Universe mastermind Kevin Feige revealed his plans for the new Spider-Man, after discovering the episodic nature of comics. He's working toward a five movie story arc for the character, which started in Captain America: Civil War and will conclude in Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 Or Whatever

"We are looking at a five-movie storyline — Civil War, Homecoming, Avengers: Infinity War, untitled Avengers, Homecoming 2 — or whatever we end up calling it — as an amazing five-story journey for Peter Parker," Feige says. "In the way that the events of Civil War directly inform the opening of Homecoming and his state of mind as he goes back to high school, so too will the events of the next two Avengers movies as he continues with high school. This original 22-movie arc ends with the untitled Avengers in May of 2019 and then two months later it will be Peter and Spider-Man (on July 5, 2019) that usher us into the aftermath and how things proceed from there."

Spider-Man: Homecoming is set to release July 7.

The Outhouse EXXXCLUSIVELY overheard Feige asking the Marvel boardroom, "Has anyone else heard of comics? Each issue connects to the next one. It's unheard of. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?"
