NEWS: SPIDER-MAN JOINS THE MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE
Marvel and Sony announced earlier this week that
Spider-Man will be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That’s right people–the
MCU is one step closer to becoming complete.
While Sony retains the rights to Spider-Man, they will be
working with Marvel Studios to film another reboot of the Spidey series as well
as feature Spider-Man’s character in the upcoming Marvel “Phase 3” films,
including Captain America: Civil War.
Speaking of Phase 3, due to this new partnership Marvel has now altered their movie
release schedule. Here is the current premiere lineup:
- May 6, 2016: Captain
America: Civil War
- November 4, 2016: Doctor
- May 5, 2017: Guardians
of the Galaxy 2
- November 4, 2017: Thor:
- July 6, 2018: Black
- November 2, 2018: Captain
- July 12, 2019: Inhumans
As of right now, we don’t know how these changes will
affect Avengers: Infinity War, but
because those films are scheduled for 2018 and 2019, there is plenty time to
make the proper adjustment.
And as for the Spider-Man reboot, rumors claim that this
Spider-Man will be returning to high school (instead of a graduating
senior/college student). They will also be recasting for the role of Spidey,
and the two names floating around most frequently are Dylan O’Brien (The Maze Runner) and Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson/ Fury). Personally, I
wouldn’t mind seeing Lerman in the role.
With this partnership of Marvel and Sony, it gives me a
glimmer of hope that a deal can be struck with Fox (doubtful, but one can dream).
Don’t forget to check out Avengers: Age
Ultron and Ant-Man this summer.
