In a deal fans have been speculating on since 2008, Marvel and Sony have come together to merge The Amazing Spider-Man franchise with the MCU. Spidey will first appear in an upcoming film for Marvel, before Marvel head Kevin Fiege goes on to co-produce (with Sony's Amy Pascal) Spider-Man's next solo film set for July 28th, 2017.
Based on the date, we can assume Spider-Man will be introduced to the other Avengers in Captain America: Civil War on May 6th, 2016. The movie will pit Captain America against Iron Man over the civil rights of costumed heroes, and Spider-Man played a huge role in the storyline in the comics.
No word yet, as to what direction Spider-Man will go after this change. WIll Andrew Garfield still be Peter Parker? Will we get another reboot? What do you hope to see from Spidey in the future?
