Everything We Know About Spider-Man's Role In Avengers: Endgame

Spider-Man in Avengers: Endgame SR

Tom Holland's Spider-Man will be back in Avengers: Endgame after disintegrating into dust in Avengers: Infinity War. Arguably having the most emotional death in Infinity War, Peter Parker begged Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) about not wanting to go during Thanos' snap, aka the Decimation. But, despite his current status, he's expected to be brought back into life in the upcoming Phase 3 capper alongside some, if not most, of the heroes who suffered the same fate.

Working hard to become an official Avenger ever since debuting in Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man finally earned the title on his way to Titan with Iron Man and Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), following their initial encounter with Black Order members Ebony Maw and Cull Obsidian in New York. He previously refused the gig after the events of Spider-Man: Homecoming where he took down the Vulture (Michael Keaton), opting to be a street-level criminal for a while as he continues to learn the ins and outs of being a superhero. But when the threat of Thanos (Josh Brolin) became imminent in Infinity War, while the Earth's Mightiest Heroes remains split up due to Stark and Captain America's (Chris Evans) conflict, the latter promoted his protegé to officially become an Avenger as they sought Thanos in his home planet.

Not knowing exactly what he was up to, Spider-Man boarded the Q-ship in the hopes of halting the Mad Titan's devious plans of wiping half of life in the universe. Little did he know, though, that his very first mission as an Avenger would also be his last - at least for now. He'll be back for a brand-new solo adventured in Spider-Man: Far From Home. But before that, we'll see him return in Avengers: Endgame.

Spider-Man Will Return In Avengers: Endgame

Spider-Man Dead in Avengers Endgame

Tom Holland was spotted in Atlanta during Avengers: Endgame's reshoots, which would suggest he's still got a role to play. This backs up an earlier report saying that wall-crawling hero is also confirmed for the Infinity War sequel back in April 2017. It's no secret that whatever goes down in Endgame will somehow result into the resurrection of some of the dead MCU heroes, including Spider-Man. In fact, most heroes who perished during the Decimation, like Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), and most of the Guardians of the Galaxy, are contracted to star in their future standalone films hinting that their supposed deaths are only temporary. This is also why some have gripes with Infinity War's twist ending - although directors Joe and Anthony Russo insist that there are intense stakes in the twin Avengers sequels.

While Marvel Studios is operating on the notion that the unfortunate heroes are dead, countless theories suggest that it may not be the case. Some claim that their souls could be trapped in the Soul World, others meanwhile are convinced that they might be in the Quantum Realm - the alternate dimension introduced in the Ant-Man franchise. Regardless of their current whereabouts, fans can expect that they will be brought back to the real world where they can continue their adventures past the current Thanos debacle.

It remains to be seen how exactly this will go down, but the core Avengers alongside some supporting allies, not to mention the addition of Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and Captain Marvel (Brie Larson), are expected to seek out Thanos and have him pay for the catastrophe he ensued in the universe with the Decimation. A supposed synopsis for Avengers: Endgame claims that the heroes will try to undo Thanos' snap, and while Disney said that the blurb is unofficial, it fits the most popular theories surrounding the movie, which includes the Avengers time traveling.
