Sony & Marvel Join Forces On Future Spider-Man Franchise

It has just been announced that Sony Studios and Marvel have formed a partnership to work together on the future Spider-Man movies!

“I am thrilled to team with my friends at Sony Pictures along with Amy Pascal to produce the next Spider-Man movie. Amy has been deeply involved in the realization on film of one of the world’s most beloved characters. Marvel’s involvement will hopefully deliver the creative continuity and authenticity that fans demand from the MCU. I am equally excited for the opportunity to have Spider-Man appear in the MCU, something which both we at Marvel, and fans alike, have been looking forward to for years,” Marvel’s Kevin Feige shared in a statement.

Sony Pictures’ chairman and CEO Michael Lynton added, “This is the right decision for the franchise, for our business, for Marvel, and for the fans.”

Spider-Man is rumored to be appearing in the upcoming Marvel film Captain America: Civil War. Afterwards, Sony will release a new Spider-Man movie without Andrew Garfield, who will not be reprising his role as the superhero. The film is scheduled to drop on July 28, 2017!

ARE YOU SURPRISED that Spider-Man will join the Marvel universe?

    Best decision Sony has made regarding the Spiderman Franchise future…

    What they need to do now is a way to put him inside the Marvel Cinematic Universe, because an origin story is a waste of everyone’s time (We’ve already seen it TWICE on big-bugeted films).

    Or start with the 2nd Spidrman (Miles Morales).

    Now maybe he can become an avenger

  • ilovebigbangtoobutstfu

    Andrew Garfield sucks at his role as a Spiderman. Good thing Marvel won’t do another Spiderman movie with him.

  • soggybiscuit

    Marvel films are overrated, Iron Man films get progressively worse

  • George German

    MCU should also bring Andrew Garfield and let andrew play as the webhead.

    I can’t fully agree in Garfield’s culpability for the franchise’s failure. But he certainly didn’t help it much.

    Maybe they can take a second look at Anton Yelchin.

    Yet another Marvel film? Yeah, this hasn’t been done enough…

  • the boss

    What the? I never thought I could live this day…I wonder if 20th Century will agree to do this with X-Men. But honestly, Sony’s Spider-Man sucks so this is a good decision, since every movie Marvel makes seems to be an instant hit. I wish they could choose a different actor to play Spidey, I like Garfield but his Spidey sucks. I think they will replace him anyway, but Marvel if you make another Spider Man movie, please change those goddamn villains!!! I am so tired of Green Goblin…

  • elisa

    finally !!!! this is great i never thought that i would see spiderman in the avengers movie !! thank you sonny :D

  • [~Fug Face Man!ston~]

    There should NEVER be another stand alone Iron Man film. EVER!

  • [~Fug Face Man!ston~]

    Poor Garfield. LOL

  • thewaronfugs

    Keep the original material coming! Oh wait………

  • datnely

    God already 12 years ago the first Spiderman movie came out and now they are rebotting the fracnhise for a 3rd time? Garfiled was good. Stupid to give him up. I hope to god they don’t make Spidey some nigor/spic like everyone is claiming to be. Whats next, a Nigor Harry Potter? Asian Frodo Baggins? Stupid Politicals Correctness.

  • Jon M’Shulla

    Robert Downey Jr. sucks. Marvel films are great!

  • Jon M’Shulla

    Or be in their film as an independent hero.

  • Jon M’Shulla

    This is good for Spider Man fans.

    Marvel will make the next Spider Man film and share the profits. Sony will make the one after and all others and control Spider Man movie development after the Marvel film.

    Marvel can use Spider Man in their films.

    However four Marvel films, Thor 3, Black Panther, Captain Marvel and The Inhumans will all be pushed back 6 months each.

    Hopefully, when the Fantastic Four film bombs, Fox will be in a weak re-negotiating position and make a deal as well.
