Spider-man joins the existing Marvel Cinematic Universe
It’s been made official ladies and gents, Sony has made a deal with Disney and Marvel Studios to bring Spider-man into the existing Marvel Cinematic Universe. Sony will cancel all upcoming projects that is Spider-man related including Venom and the Sinister Six films. Also Andrew Garfield will no longer reprise his role as Peter Parker.
For all the fans (including myself) of Marvel Comics, it is exciting news to finally have Spider-man join the existing Marvel Universe and finally interact, face-off, and team up with fellow comic book characters such as Iron Man, Thor, Captain, America, Punisher, Blade, and the list goes on. Another huge plus is that all the cool characters in the spidey-verse will now be integrated into the existing Marvel Cinematic Universe which only makes things much better.
Marvels Plan for Spider-man
How does the Spider-man deal effect the existing line-up of movies coming out you may ask, well a few movies that were slated for a 2017 release has been pushed back and that includes Black Panther, Thor: Ragnarok, Captain Marvel and Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Spider-man will be getting his own movie on July 28, 2017 and will appear in Captain America: Civil War which release on May 6, 2016.
The plans that Marvel have for Spider-man is a serious one, not only will he get a reboot, feature in other Marvel movies, as well as play a tentative role in the upcoming Infinity War films, his ethnicity may change as well. After two attempts of Spider-man films by Sony, the main question that everyone has is will Peter Parker continue to be Spider-man? Their are some rumors going around saying that a much younger Spider-man will be introduced and it may not be Peter Parker, they may be aiming for Miles Morales who is the Black/Latino version of Spider-man.
Whether this rumor is true or not (Peter Parker or Miles Morales), what ever Marvel decides will work out great. Their is no question that Marvel Studios has everything under control as far as their vision goes when setting up all these phase movies and the build up to the ultimate battle against the mad titan Thanos. Captain America: Civil War is already shaping up to be a mini Avengers movie with a huge line-up of Super Heroes and Villains at the fore-front. Maybe we will see a Spider-man cameo along side Black Panther in the upcoming Avengers Age of Ultron film. Either way, it is all excellent news.
Only if it could happen
The last piece of the puzzle I would like to see but surely we won’t get is for Marvel Studios to get the rights back to Silver Surfer, Galactus, and the Skrulls (which all belong to Fantastic Four, property of Fox). Having already introduced move goers into outer space with Thanos and Guardians of the Galaxy, it would be complete with those characters included. One day it will happen, but no time soon unfortunately.
Their you have it folks, look out for the new Spider-man movie which appears in theaters all around the globe on July 28, 2017.
