Great news, True Believers! Sony Pictures and Disney’s Marvel Studios have just, via a joint press release, announced that, for now, they will continue their partnership and let Spider-Man (played by Tom Holland) stay in Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe. Together they will co-produce a sequel to Spider-Man: Far From Home set to be released on July 16, 2021, and, the press release adds, Spider-Man will also appear in a future Marvel Studios-film.

It has been a lot of fun being a big fan of Marvel’s favorite wall-crawler since Marvel Studios and Sony agreed to ‘bring Marvel into the amazing world of Spider-Man’ back in February 2015. Since then we’ve seen this new version of Peter Parker appear in Captain America: Civil War where he stole Steve Rogers’ shield for a minute, and that was probably one of the best on-screen moments ever for the character.
But they say that all good things come to an end, and during these last few days Spider-Man’s future involvement in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been called into question. Continue reading “How Long Will Spider-Man Be in the MCU?”
Confirmed. It has been confirmed. Calm down, Jeffrey. Calm down. … ARE YOU KIDDING ME THIS IS AWESOME.
Okay, let’s process what just happened. Today – on February 9th in the US, February 10th in Europe – Marvel Studios has released the following information: “Sony is bringing Marvel into the amazing world of Spider-Man.” This means that everyone’s favorite webhead ‘will appear in a Marvel film from Marvel’s Cinematic Universe’, and thereafter be featured in a Sony Pictures film on the 28th of July 2017 – which will be co-produced by nerd-king Kevin Feige – and mark the beginning of ‘a new creative direction for the web slinger’.
Disney and Sony announce that Kevin Feige will team-up with Amy Pascal to bring forth ‘the next chapter’ for Spider-Man. There are couple of notes that one should not read too hastily – Sony will ‘continue to finance, distribute, own and have final creative control of the Spider-Man films’; it seems we’ll get a new Spider-Man – but they do mention Peter Parker.
Miles Morales isn’t likely then, but, regardless, I think Marvel and Sony just won over nerds and geeks across the globe – now that Sony listens to Marvel, we have the opportunity to get the Marvel Cinematic Universe we deserve.
What does this mean for Andrew Garfield, though, is he gone for sure? It seems so.
We must note that the release dates for some other phase 3 films are changed due to this – but I think I speak for every Marvel geek when I say – that I’m just glad Spidey’s home.
