There has been a lot of talk for the past few months now, about the possibility of the character Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Sony agreeing to let Marvel take over the character. A deal has now officially been struck between the two studios and Spider-Man will now appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, teaming up with the likes of Captain America, Iron Man, and Hulk in future movies.
While Spider-Man will now appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it has also been confirmed that Sony will still have final creative control over the character, as well as still financing, distributing and owning Spider-Man movies. With that said, it looks like we will be getting yet another take on Spider-Man, with fans hoping that they will finally get the Spider-Man movie that they have wanted for so long.
The reports have suggested that Marvel will want to bring in their own actor to take on the role of Peter Parker aka Spider-Man, which means that it will be the end of Andrew Garfield playing the role of the superhero. The decision seems to have fans split at the moment, with some welcoming a new take on the character, with a new actor involved, while others feel that it is too soon to reboot the character again, believing that Andrew has done a good job.
The decision to add Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe has meant a lot of reshuffling for other Marvel projects. The new Spider-Man movie will open on July 28, 2017, which has led to Thor: Ragnorak being moved from July 28, 2017 to November 3, 2017. This in turn has moved Black Panther from November 3, 2017 to July 6, 2018, while Captain Marvel moves to November 2018 and Inhumans to Summer 2019.
We cannot wait to see what Marvel do with the character and whether they do actually decide to keep Andrew Garfield on board or now. It has been a long time coming and hopefully now Spider-Man can become the big screen hit that we all know he is capable of.
Do you think Andrew Garfield should be replaced as Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
