Speculation has run rampant about the next appearance of the web-slinger since Marvel reached a deal with Sony to integrate the character into its films.
'Captain America: Civil War' was previously tipped as the most likely entrance point for Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, although recently rumours have arisen about a possible 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' cameo, reported Collider.
When Kevin Feige was asked if there would be a specially-filmed cameo for Spider-Man in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron', he said, "No."
Kevin Feige has previously confirmed that the new Spider-Man will be high school age, but stressed that there will not be a third retelling of his origin story on the big screen.
"In Spider-Man's very specific case, where there have been two retellings of that origin in the last whatever it's been - 13 years - for us, we are going to take it for granted that people know that, and the specifics," he said.
"It will not be an origin story, but with great power comes great responsibility. It is inherent to who his character is. But we want to reveal it in different ways and spend much more time focusing on this young high school kid in the MCU dealing with his powers."
Freddie Highmore, Dylan O'Brien, Donald Glover and Ansel Elgort are among the actors who have been linked to the role of Peter Parker. The next solo Spider-Man movie has been scheduled for July 28, 2017.
