In news sending shock waves through the movie and comic book universe, Sony and Marvel have struck a deal to bring the webbed wonder into the latter's film franchise.
That's right, Spider-Man is coming back! Again!
Yup, it’s a reboot ... again. Really it’s a re-reboot.
It is believed he'll make his debut in Captain American 3: Civil War. As a result of this accord, Marvel has altered its pending release schedule.
What are your plans for July 28, 2017? Seeing the new Thor? Neeeewp!
Because now that's when the new Spiderman is hitting theaters. Sony will be teaming up with Marvel and Disney on this one, and they are taking Spidey in a “new creative direction.”
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield got along famously on the set of their two movie franchise. So where could Sony possible want to take the superhero?
The Spiderman movies combined have grossed over $4 billion worldwide. So everybody else has got to fall in line:
“Thor: Ragnarok," which was originally scheduled for July 28, is now being pushed back to November. “Black Panther” is coming out in July 2018, “Captain Marvel” in November 2018 and “Inhumans” will have to wait until July 2019.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron and its sequel release dates will stay the same.
So now the speculation begins: Who will be the next Peter Parker?
Back in 2010 there was speculation that Robert Pattinson could fill Spiderman's fitted boots. But that seems unlikely now.
Who would you like to see as Spiderman. In what "new direction" could they possibly go?
