Now when the Avengers were dropped into a random theatre it was certainly a surprise. Now most of these people had not seen each other since the “civil war,” as it had been dubbed by the media. Tony, Steve, Natasha, Thor, Clint, Bruce, Bucky, Wanda, Sam, Rhodey, and Peter were all there. They all kind of migrated towards the seats and there was a clear separation between “Team Cap” and “Team Iron Man.” Bruce and Thor were kind of making a barrier between the two.
“So... does anyone know what we’re doing here?” Clint asked.
“Good question Mr. Barton,” a voice came over the speakers. “I’ve brought you all here today to watch a trailer of a movie about Mr. Parker, or Spiderman.”
Everyone looked to Peter and suddenly fights were breaking out.
“You brought a kid into this?” Steve yelled at Tony.
“You brought Wanda into this, so you have no room to talk. Besides I regret doing it, I shouldn’t have!”
“Mr. Stark didn’t do anything! I wanted to go!” Peter defended.
The voice cleared their throat. “You can call me The Author or just Author is fine. Basically, I’m going to show you a trailer and a few short clips. This is to show you the issue with you all being apart. And to warn you. A titan called Thanos is coming. And none of you are prepared or even aware that this is happening. He wants to destroy half the universe and he will succeed if you don’t work together. These clips are of the aftermath.”
Everyone was visibly tense after that and Tony threw an arm around Peter’s shoulder, pulling him close.
“Great, now let's get started.”
The screen showed an older looking Peter crouching on a roof top, his mask off.
“Everywhere I go, I see his face,” Peter voiced over.
The screen showed a short shot of a mural of Iron Man.
“I just really miss him.”
“Wait, hold up did he just imply that Tony was dead?” Sam asked.
Peter whimpered and looked at his totally not father figure and Tony instantly let him curl into his side.
“I don’t-I don’t know,” stuttered Tony.
The screen faded to black and Happy showed up.
“Yeah, I miss him too.”
The screen showed a heart broken looking Peter.
“I don’t think Tony would have done what he did if he didn’t know you were going to be here after he was gone,” Happy told him.
“So, Tony’s really dead?” Rhodey said uncertainly.
Tony shook his head. “We’ll fix it.”
The screen showed Peter in his Iron Spider suit flying around inside a building, webbing up shooters.
“You going to be the next Iron Man now?” a police officer asked.
“Well no I don’t have time, I’m too busy doing your jobs,”
They all laughed at Peter’s snarky comment but there was still an air of sadness in the room.
The officers made sounds of protest.
“I’m kidding I’m kidding; look keep up the good work because I am going on vacation.”
The screen faded once more, and the music swelled.
“Whoa!” a web slinging Peter yelled.
“Heads up Nick Fury’s calling you.”
The screen cut to Happy. As if on cue Peter’s phone started to buzz.
“I don’t really want to talk to Nick Fury.”
“Answer the phone.”
“Because if you don’t talk to him then I have to talk to him, I don’t want to talk to him.”
Then Peter hung up the phone.
Happy looked appalled. “You sent Nick Fury to voicemail?”
“I got to go!” Peter started to leave.
“You do not ghost Nick Fury!”
“Got to admit kids got guts,” Natasha said seriously.
“He’s doing what I told him to do, making sure that Fury stays far away from him,” Tony said a bit proudly.
“What up dorks,” MJ came on the screen.
“What’s up? We're just talking about the trip,” Peter told her.
The real Peter had a small blush on his face.
“I'm here in Saint Marco Pollos-ugh!” Flash yelled as he lived streamed.
“I think MJ really likes me,” Peter voiced over as MJ sat by the water with a camera.
“Ooo Petey has a crush,” Rhodey teased and Tony just smirked as he ruffled his hair.
“Reminds me when I first fell in love,” Ned said. Then suddenly a dart flew into his neck.
Peter looked a little worried for a second, but Tony assured him that he was probably just fine.
Onscreen Peter stopped brushing his teeth.
“You’re a very difficult person to contact, Spider Man.” Nick Fury said in the dark corner of the room.
It then showed Peter pulling of his mask and some crazy disco ball guy.
“This is Mr. Beck,” Fury said.
The two shook hands.
“We could use someone like you on my world.” Beck told Peter.
“Mr. Beck is from earth just not ours,” Nick confirmed. “The snap tore a hole in our dimension.”
And the screen showed Maria and Nick shooting at some rock monster.
“Your saying there's a multiverse?” Peter asked as he came back into view.
“You are sch a nerd!” Tony told Peter.
“Oh, come on your telling me that doesn’t in the least bit intrigue you?”
“We have a job to do,” Fury said. “And you’re coming with us.”
“Pete you better not go with him,” Tony told him.
“I haven't even done this yet."
The scene cut to a water monster erupting from under a bridge.
“There's got to be someone else you can use," Peter voiced over.
Fury came back on screen.
“What about Thor?” Peter asked.
“Unavailable," Maria told him.
A fire monster practically exploded in front of MJ’s face.
“Look I’m just the friendly neighborhood Spiderman.”
The screen showed a Spiderman decked out in an all-black suit, hanging off the side of the building.
“Bitch please you’ve been to space.”
“When did you go to space?!” All them yelled collectively.
“I never went to space!” Peter yelled back.
That Beck guy flew across the sky, shooting at the water monster.
“What do you want Peter?”
“I want to go back on my trip with the girl who I really like and tell her how I feel.”
The scene cut to Peter and MJ walking.
“No, of course I’m not...”
“I mean it’s kind of obvious.”
Peter just shook his head and the scene changed to one of the elemental monsters attacking a bridge.
“You’re right you may not be ready. But this is my responsibility,” Beck told him. “Saving the world requires sacrifice. Sometimes people die.”
“I don’t trust that guy,” Bucky spoke up.
“Yeah, me neither, I recognize him from somewhere,” Tony agreed.
The scene showed Peter taking off Tony’s glasses.
“Oh my god,” he whispered.
“I gave you my glasses?” Tony asked.
“I guess? Thanks Mr. Stark.”
The scene showed devastation then Peter swinging along in a new red and black suit.
“I just always feel like I’m putting my friends in danger,” Peter voiced over. “The world needs the next Iron Man.”
The screen showed Peter setting up his suit in a very similar way to Tony’s.
“You guys are like the same person,” Sam said.
“Hey, you don’t need to be the next Iron Man, one, I’m not going anywhere, two, you just stay in the neighborhood bud.”
Peter just nodded and rested his head on Tony’s shoulder.
Then a scene of Beck submerged in green smoke.
“Are you going to step up or not?” Nick asked Peter.
Peter looked to another mural of Iron Man and a look of determination came over his face.
A fire monster attacked, and Peter swung from one building to another.
A plane flew by and the screen showed Happy and a group of teenagers.
“I got to get you guys out of here!” he yelled. “Get on the jet!”
“Who are you?” MJ asked.
“I work with Spiderman.”
“You work for Spiderman?” Flash’s voice cracked in excitement at the end.
“I work with Spiderman not for Spiderman,” Happy insisted.
The jet blew up behind them.
“New plan!” The screen cut to black.
“Well, that was enlightening...” Tony said.
“Everything will make much more sense about why Peter was emotionally traumatized from this event, well much more than usual I guess” The voice came over the loudspeaker.
They all looked at each other uneasily at that.
