Marvel Studios has been working hard to create the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a world in which the Marvel comic properties all work together. This began with the movie Iron Man, but kicked into full gear officially with Captain America: The First Avenger. Now Marvel Studios has several movies out and planned for the future, as well as television shows, all with the same characters crossing over between movies and shows.
One major Marvel super hero has been missing from this equation. The nerdy Peter Parker and his alter ego Spider-Man have been gracing major films for years now. The property rights of Spider-Man is owned by Sony Pictures for movie purposes, making it difficult for Spidey to swing into an Avenger film or Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode.
That is, until now…
With a new deal being struck between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios, which will bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe said Marc Sparks. He will first appear in an upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film, and then in a Sony Pictures Spider-Man film scheduled to be released July 28, 2017.
