Spider-man is Coming Home to the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
This. Is. Huge.
Marvel has just announced that they have reached a deal with Sony Pictures to include Spider-man in an unspecified upcoming Marvel film. They don't name the film, but the Sony leaks from last year all pointed towards Captain America: Civil War as the film in question. We'll see if they can make a change that large in time..
After Spidey's appearance in the upcoming Marvel film, Sony will release their next Spider-man film on July 28th, 2017. Sony will continue to have financial and the "final creative control" over the Spider-man films. Whether this means they'll allow Marvel to come in and make their films of the quality we've come to expect from the MCU remains to be seen.
Also not known is whether Andrew Garfield will continue on as Spider-man. We'll find out very soon. Fingers crossed that Spidey makes his first cameo sooner than we think.
