It’s your friendly neighborhood spider-check-in as Kevin Feig talks Marvel’s involvement in Homecoming, and there’s new footage and details on Spider-Man in Civil War. Get a strange new look at Guardian of the Galaxy Volume 2's new hero. Plus, new Game of Thrones pictures, and Dark Tower casting. Behold, Spoilers!
Kevin Feige says that Marvel has creative control over the movie:
Well, I’ve known all those people for a very long time. Amy Pascal, Tom Rothman, who runs Sony now, I’ve known for years. So, it’s been great. They really are supportive in allowing us to make the creative decisions to make [Spider-Man: Homecoming], but they’ve been great partners. So far so good on that movie.

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
While discussing Nightcrawler’s view of Mystique in X-Men Apocalypse, director Bryan Singer confirms that his adaptation of the Verne classic is set after the Civil War (no, not that one):
[Mystique] is famous, but nobody’s really seen her since. Meeting her is a big deal to him. She’s the great hero from 1973 and he’s starstruck in that moment. She’s not comfortable with it. She’s not interested in being the face of a world that she doesn’t believe exists. She’s not a hero. It’s the same reason I’m setting 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea right after the Civil War. Everything wasn’t suddenly hunky-dory between the North and the South – there was still hostility and tension. The same thing exists here.
Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan are rewriting Colin Trevorrow’s long-in-the-works spec script. [Tracking Board]
To the surprise of no one, screenwriter Paul Wernick confirms Deadpool will continue to break the fourth wall in the sequel:
We’re going to break eight walls! Well, it’s such a signature of the Deadpool comics, breaking the fourth wall. And yes, audiences loved it and we loved to write it. You’ll definitely see more of it in the next movie.
Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2
James Gunn has shared another storyboard, focusing on a shot of new Guardian Mantis (played by Pom Klementieff).
Here’s a new TV spot.
Executive Producer Wendy Mericle teases plenty of death in the season finale:
It’s a pretty grim one, I’m sad to say. We have a huge number of potential fatalities. And you’ll definitely get a hint about where the team is headed for Season 5.
