Crazy Theory Suggests Reason Behind Untitled Spider-Man Reboot

The Spider-Man reboot is coming out in 2017, and up to now its title has remained unknown. By contrast, other Marvel films coming out in the next few years, many of which set for release after Spider-Man, have firmly established their titles already.

There's Deadpool, Captain America: Civil War, and Doctor Strange this year; Thor: Ragnarok and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 the following year; Ant-Man and The Wasp, Black Panther, and Avengers: Infinity War - Part I in 2018; and
Captain Marvel and Avengers: Infinity War - Part II in 2019. It's very uncanny that Marvel still hasn't decided on a title yet, which is why a Movie Pilotwriter has taken it upon himself to propose a crazy, yet plausible theory explaining why.

According to the theory, Spider-Man could be introduced only at the post-credits scene, which is when Marvel will reveal the title for the reboot. This could explain why there hasn't been any sign of the web-slinging swashbuckler in any of the marketing art for Captain America: Civil War even though Marvel made it clear that the superhero will appear in the film.

The site explained further:

At the end of the film, Steve Rogers is defeated, captured, and taken to jail. Tony Stark begins his new initiative to have all superheroes unmasked and working with the government.
After the credits have rolled, he turns up in New York searching for someone while wearing his Iron Man suit. Eventually he finds the person he is looking for fighting some street criminals.
He lands next to him and they have a conversation about coming in and being unmasked. Peter Parker, wearing his Spider-Man costume, reluctantly accepts, but as they are about to leave he hits Tony with a blast from his web and swings away. Tony gives chase, but Spidey has escaped and has gone into hiding.

If this theory pans out, it certainly goes well with previous rumors of Captain America forming an underground group of rebel Avengers.

According to the Spider-Man theory, if The Cap ends up in prison after Civil War, Tom Holland's Spider-Man might decide to join the Steve Rogers' team to fight an "evil" Tony Stark. Apparently, there's the possibility that Stark could become so evil that he would use villains to hunt Cap and his team. This would help introduce Spidey's nemeses and the storyline for his reboot altogether.

Need more proof?

If you read between the statements of Evans and Downey in the video above, it appears the two actors will be appearing in the Spider-Man reboot.


Downey said: "By the way, we are gonna shoot in Atlanta again, you and I."

Evans replied: "I know and I'm ready, I'm ready."

This is due to the fact that the only Marvel film confirmed to film in Atlanta is the untitled Spider-Man reboot. This would also mean that Steve Rogers won't die in Civil War. If he ends up in jail after Civil War, his band of underground superheroes.

This theory might be crazy, but I say it's quite genius. It certainly explained a lot of the mystery behind the untitled Spider-Man film.

Do you think this theory's possible?
