Spider-Man Back In The Marvel Cinematic Universe After Sony, Marvel Reach New Deal




<div _ngcontent-c15 = "" innerhtml = "

It seemed inevitable because it was. Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures announced this morning that Spider-Man will return to the MCU after the studios reach a new deal to continue their partnership. Fans and investors around the world will rejoice in the news as it ensures billion dollar business for the wall-crawler for years to come.

Today's news comes after the studio sparred over who was responsible for breaking the conversation and resulting in initial announcements that Spider-Man would no longer appear in the MCU, and future Spider-Man sequels would not include a crossover with Marvel's shared superheroes world.

The new deal sees Marvel Studios producing Spidey's next installment of the cinematic franchise, with Kevin Feige taking a lead role in production. Spider-Man will also appear in other MCU movies going forward, as he has previously. The third film in the modern series releases July 16, 2021.

Feige made an interesting remark during today's announcement, and it's hard to say whether there is a throw-away line or a hint at something more substantial to come. When commenting on his pleasure at reaching a new deal with Sony, Feige said, "& lsqb; A & rsqb; s Sony continues to develop their own Spidey – you never know what surprises the future might hold."

Does that imply Sony's planned series of Spider-Man spinoffs will somehow wind up merged into the MCU, possibly by having the spinoff characters – notably, Venom – appear in the solo Spider-Man movies? Does that mean Marvel is offering (again) to copy the spinoff films as well, even if kept separate from the main Spider-Man series? Is it just a friendly endorsement of Sony's other unrelated spinoffs?

My guess is, part of making the new deal happen is Marvel's (and Feige's) involvement in Sony's spinoffs, and some plans to allow the MCU version of Spider-Man to cross over those spinoffs – or for spinoff characters to appear in the solo Spidey releases.

Another option that would definitely count as a welcome “surprise” for many people would be an idea I previously suggested back in June. Marvel could have convinced Sony that the ideal scenario is not to use Peter Parker's Spidey iteration for the planned "spider-version" of spinoffs, but instead to use Miles Morales, thus giving Sony not one but TWO Spider-Man solo franchises – one within the MCU, and one as part of a separate shared "spider-verse."

Down the road, such a separate second Spider-Man and his collection of shared-world spinoff characters could appear in a crossover event alongside Peter Parker's MCU version of the character, and perhaps some other MCU heroes as well. A multiverse setup of this sort would pay off enormously – imagine a story starting in Peter Parker MCU Spider-Man movies, continuing in a Miles Morales Spider-Man movie, and then culminating in a big crossover Avengers event with various multiverse characters.

Even lacking such an MCU-Spider-crossover event, Sony's idea of ​​cultivating two different Spider-Man franchises within two different superhero worlds is quite enticing, and any desire to just have Peter Parker's MCU incarnation in Venom and other spinoffs should be dwarfed by the appeal of multiple Spider-Man franchises and playing in two different shared universes. Add in the dangling carrot of possible future MCU crossover events, and it's hard to imagine Sony turning it down.

Whatever comes to pass, though, the big news today is that Spider-Man is back in the MCU – and truth be told, he's never really left. It was always a game of brinksmanship, with too much money on the table and too much potential for both sides to walk away forever. I said before Spider-Man's return to the MCU was inevitable, because it was. The only question was whether the right people would see that "sooner" rather than "later" had the most financial benefits for all involved. Luckily, precisely what happened, and every reason for everyone to be mindful the next time a brinksmanship scenario of this sort plays out.
