SPIDER-MAN Returns To Marvel Studios; Announces Partnership With Sony

Written by Stefan Blitz

After a few critically disappointing theatrical releases and a number of rumors elevated by the Sony email leak, the dust has settled, and Marvel is once again in the Spider-Man business.

Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios are co-producing the future installments of the web-slinger, who will make his first ‘rebooted’ appearance in an upcoming Marvel Studios feature.  A long time rumor had Spidey making an appearance in Captain America: Civil War, which seems the most likely as the new Spider-Man film is set to release on July 28, 2017 (It would make sense for the character to debut possibly in the rumored Iron Man, Captain America and Thor-less Avengers: Infinity War Part One, but the 2018 release date eliminates that as his first appearance).

As part of the deal, Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige will produce with Amy Pascal for Sony.  The big upside is that Sony gets to retain the very profitable rights to the Spider-Man character as well as integrate him into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

What this does mean is that Andrew Garfield is likely out as the character (as is director Mark Webb).  Producers Matt Tolmach and Avi Arad will executive produce the new installment.

This is good news for fans of the Marvel cinematic properties. With Spider-Man the figurehead of the company, having him be a part of the Marvel Universe as well as having Feige and his team involved with future films is a win all around.
