Spiderman Finally Coming to Marvel Cinematic Universe
The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is the ultimate in nerdtastic adventure. Marvel has grown from an independent movie studio in 2008 to a multi-billion dollar Hollywood powerhouse. Everyone in the industry is looking to work with this movie studio. For a while, it was being rumored that one of the biggest stars of the Marvel Universe, Spiderman, would be joining the Marvel Universe, and now the news has been confirmed.
Spiderman is one of the major characters in Marvel comics, but the movie rights of the character were with Sony Pictures. Sony has made several successful movies based on the Spiderman franchise. But when Marvel came into the movie business, the fans started demanding one of the star Avengers to come join the big boys of Marvel. After months of negotiations, Sony Pictures and Marvels have signed the deal to get Spider in MCU.

There are speculations that Spiderman may make an appearance as soon as next year with the Captain America: Civil War. This would be a great news for the comic book enthusiasts as Spiderman is one of the major characters in the Civil War storyline.
Spiderman is one of Sony’s biggest cash cow, so the company is not giving up complete control over the character yet. They reserve the right to make independent standalone Spiderman movies. This seems like a precautionary act as Marvel can do much better job with the character than Sony has ever done.
Marvel has reshuffled its release plans and introduced an Untitled Spiderman movie instead of Thor: Ragnarok. Andrew Garfield, who played Spiderman in the last two movies, is not going to be reprising that role so it’s still unclear who would be playing the new Spiderman. But this story has got us on the edge of our seats, and we can’t wait for the Captain America: Civil War to come to our nearest movie theater.
