It’s Official: Spider-Man Is Coming To The MCU

Ever since the Sony leaks, we knew that Sony and Marvel were working on a deal that would bring Spider-Man back to the MCU. Last night, Marvel confirmed that an agreement was reached:

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.

Marvel and Sony Pictures are also exploring opportunities to integrate characters from the MCU into future Spider-Man films.

While the press release doesn’t state which Marvel film will be first to utilize Spidey, you can pretty much take Captain America: Civil War to the bank.

Our guess is that Andrew Garfield won’t be part of the “new creative direction” either. However, nothing has been confirmed on that front thus far.
