You’d think Spider-Man joining the MCU would have been a shake up of epic proportions. Not the case, according to Feige. In our interview for Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Marvel president gave us a little peek at how Marvel works by explaining that they had a plan already in place in case Spider-Man became available again.

An Avengers junket wouldn’t be an Avengers junket without a big surprise. In 2012, it was the reveal that the cast was filming one more scene. In 2015, for Avengers: Age of Ultron, Kevin Feige premiered the new trailer for Ant-Man, which went online Monday. Watch it here.

After Edgar Wright left the project, star Paul Rudd called his friend McKay to work on the film. The pair worked together on the script and McKay was considered to helm the project, too.
