Okay so you have now seen Spider-Man: Homecoming. You have witnessed Peter Parker’s triumphant return to the Marvel Universe, and his return to being a teenager instead of a hunky, moody 30-year-old who is still inexplicably in high school. And you have the post-credits scenes. (Fun fact: Everyone at Marvel Studios calls them “tags.”) So what do they mean for the future of Spidey and the MCU?
After delivering two disappointing Spider-Man movies, director Marc Webb recruited Captain America for his return to the intimate realm of indie dramas, free from the tyranny of colorful super-villains, CGI and spandex. The first trailer for Gifted features real people dealing with real problems, like hunky Chris Evans struggling to raise his niece, who just happens to be a child genius — which is still kind of like a superhero story, right?
Of the many bonus features included in each new Marvel Blu-ray / DVD release, the gag reels are always the most special of the bunch, especially when the whole MCU gang gets together. You won’t be able to purchase Captain America: Civil War for another couple of weeks, but thanks to Marvel, you can watch the hilarious outtakes featuring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr. and the rest of the Avengers crew right now.
