The upcoming Marvel superhero film Ant-Man may include "lots of" references to Spider-Man.

There are also rumours about references to OsCorp in Ant-Man, reported Aceshowbiz.

The upcoming Paul Rudd starrer, directed by Peyton Reed, "will start planting the seeds for the character to make his first appearance in Captain America: Civil War as a fully-formed hero without an origin story retread. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, by the time Ant-Man occurs, Spider-Man exists.

Spider-Man will not make an appearance in Ant-Man as "current plans do not even have him in a post-credits scene, that is still saved for Captain America: Civil War."

OsCorp, however, could come in a scene involving Darren Cross trying to sell the Ant-Man/Yellowjacket weapons technology to other corporations.

The scene will also include other nefarious Marvel organisations like The Ten Rings and Roxxon.

Also starring Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale and Michael Pena, Ant-Man is set to hit US theatres on July 17.
