Sony and Marvel have just announced that Spider-man will officially be added to the roster of heroes in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe). After months of speculation it seems Sony has realized the boat load of money that can be made by loosening their grasp on “Spidey” just a little bit.
Under the deal, the new Spider-Man will first appear in a Marvel film from Marvel’s Cinematic Universe (MCU). Sony Pictures will thereafter release the next installment of its $4 billion Spider-Man franchise, on July 28, 2017, in a film that will be co-produced by Kevin Feige and his expert team at Marvel and Amy Pascal, who oversaw the franchise launch for the studio 13 years ago. Together, they will collaborate on a new creative direction for the web slinger. Sony Pictures will continue to finance, distribute, own and have final creative control of the Spider-Man films.
I am one of the millions of geeks who is jumping for joy now that Spider-Man is in the capable hands of Marvel Studios. I haven’t been this excited since the day those nice police officers rescued me from that “handsy”, bearded creep at the mall. I know what you’re going to say. “You were arrested for attacking the mall Santa, because he said they don’t make Kate Upton real sex dolls at the north pole.” Well I didn’t know magic had limits. “You were nude.” Touché.
