CONFIRMED: Spider-Man to Appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

Posted by Saliv Tuesday, February 10, 2015
Hello Fanboys and Fangirls! This is Sam Lascio, dropping the bombshell that we've all been waiting for:

Spider-Man will now appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Spider-Man is back home! (Kind of)
Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios have finally reached an agreement that will bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe! Not many details are out at the moment, but here's some stuff we know for sure:
  1. This is a "new" Spider-Man (not connected to the Andrew Garfield films).
  2. Spider-Man will first appear in an MCU film, then get his own standalone film produced by Sony Pictures. That second film is slated for July 28, 2017.
  3. The standalone film will be co-produced by Feige and the Marvel team, as well as Amy Pascal from Sony.
  4. "Sony Pictures will continue to finance, distribute, own, and have final creative control of the Spider-Man films."
  5. Marvel and Sony are looking over possibilities for MCU characters to appear in the standalone Spider-Man films.
Marvel has also made announcements regarding changes to the release dates of future slated films:
  • Thor: Ragnorok - November 3, 2017
  • Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 - May 4, 2018 (unchanged)
  • Black Panther - July 6, 2018
  • Captain Marvel - November 2, 2018
  • Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 - May 3, 2019 (unchanged)
  • Inhumans - July 12, 2019
This now makes Inhumans come after Infinity War Part 2, and pushes Black Panther until after the third Avengers film.

What do you think this means for Phase 3? Do you think Sony will be able to handle keeping control of Spider-Man but adhering to Marvel's Cinematic Universe continuity? Do you think Marvel will change the release of Infinity War Part 1 to reincorporate Black Panther? Does the fact that Spider-Man will appear before his 2017 solo film mean he'll definitely be in Captain America: Civil War? Let us know what you think in the comments! Thanks for reading, everyone!
