Spider-Man Officially Joins The MCU, Making Fans Weep With Joy

Tis true! Marvel has just confirmed via their own website that Spider-Man will be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe for at least one film. According to the news, Spider-Man will be in one Marvel movie, then move on with his solo films for who knows how long.

Official statement:

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.

But if that wasn’t enough excitement, they also teased that they are working on ways to bring in characters from the MCU into the Spider-Man films. I don’t know about you, but I am super excited about this new venture for Marvel and Sony!

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

Are you excited for Spider-Man to join the MCU and vice versa?
