Sony Pictures Entertainment and Marvel Studios have announced that they will be joining forces in bringing Spidey into the MCU and back to the big screen! Under the new deal, Spider-Man will first appear in Marvel film form, possibly feating in Captain America: Civil War next summer. From there, Sony will work on the next film, tentatively scheduled for July 2017 which will be co-produced by Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige and his team of Marvel experts. Together, they will collaborate on a new creative direction for Spidey. Ultimate "final creative control" will fall to Sony-- along with financial decisions and distribution rights. This deal also leaves the door open for any MCU characters appearing in future Spider-Man films. I. Am. STOKED.
