What better way to start this thread up again than with this news....

Sony Pictures Entertainment Brings Marvel Studios Into The Amazing World Of Spider-Man

(Culver City, California, and Burbank, California February 09, 2015) – Sony Pictures Entertainment and Marvel Studios announced today that Sony is bringing Marvel into the amazing world of Spider-Man.

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.

The new relationship follows a decade of speculation among fans about whether Spider-Man – who has always been an integral and important part of the larger Marvel Universe in the comic books – could become part of the Marvel Universe on the big screen. Spider-Man has more than 50 years of history in Marvel's world, and with this deal, fans will be able to experience Spider-Man taking his rightful place among other Super Heroes in the MCU.

Bob Iger, Chairman and CEO, The Walt Disney Company said: "Spider-Man is one of Marvel's great characters, beloved around the world. We're thrilled to work with Sony Pictures to bring the iconic web-slinger into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which opens up fantastic new opportunities for storytelling and franchise building."

"We always want to collaborate with the best and most successful filmmakers to grow our franchises and develop our characters. Marvel, Kevin Feige and Amy, who helped orchestrate this deal, are the perfect team to help produce the next chapter of Spider-Man," said Michael Lynton, Chairman and CEO of Sony Pictures Entertainment. "This is the right decision for the franchise, for our business, for Marvel, and for the fans."

"Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios share a love for the characters in the Spider-Man universe and have a long, successful history of working together. This new level of collaboration is the perfect way to take Peter Parker's story into the future," added Doug Belgrad, president, Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group.

"I am thrilled to team with my friends at Sony Pictures along with Amy Pascal to produce the next Spider-Man movie," said Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. "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."

Spider-Man, embraced all over the world, is the most successful franchise in the history of Sony Pictures, with the five films having taken in more than $4 billion worldwide.

I wish Marvel had more creative control but this is great news! And seeing as July 2017 is the date for the next Spider-Man film I assume we will see Spider-Man in Civil War next year. Very exciting news! Thanks 2.0!

This is something that had to happen, made a ton of sense and yet seemed unlikely to the greatest extreme.

With the huge announcement of Spidey going home, 4 Marvel films have officially been delayed to make room for a Spidey appearance: Thor: Ragnorak, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Inhumans will all be pushed back. Thor will now debut the date Black Panther was supposed to, Black Panther gets pushed to Captain Marvel's debut date, and so on.

Sinister Six has also been temporarily shut down until Sony rethinks its direction, in light of the partnership with Marvel.

Infinity Wars is still on schedule and it looks like Spidey's first appearance may be in Captain America: Civil War (as everyone had hoped for).

I wonder if they are rethinking the idea of having Black Panther & Iron Man appear in Civil War.

It's really going to be interesting to see how Marvel Studios fits in Spidey considering he's a central figure of the Marvel Universe, yet his first appearance will be like 11 MCU movies in.

I seriously doubt his standalone movie in 2017 will be an origins movie. I'm sure Marvel Studios knows everyone is tired of Spidey origin movies.

$20 says they go with Miles Morales and not Peter Parker, so they can get some more ethnicity/diversity in the MCU.

Spider-Man origin story has been done twice. Thats not what people are tired of. People are tired of Peter Parkers love life. It's been the main focus of every Spider-Man movie except maybe the 1st one.

Why would they reconsider Iron Man in the movie? It is a must for Civil War. If Spidey appears I doubt it will be a huge role and it may force the Russos to re-do their script now at the last second.

Anywho, I'm pumped for him to be in the MCU. He belongs there, just get the Fantastic Four back now.

Speak for yourself. I know a lot of fans who are tired of the whole origin story for Peter Parker (yes, along with the sappy love life story). We can only take the "Uncle Ben with great power comes great responsibility, then Uncle Ben dies" movie so many times in a span of 15 years...

He's not a very good actor though. So I don't expect much from this.

For some reason, I thought that was already confirmed.

Running time for AoU is going to be ~142 minutes. Many thought it'd push 3 hours but doesn't appear to be.


That whole weekend is gonna be great — NFL Draft and Age of Ultron.
