BREAKING NEWS: Sony Brings Marvel studios Into The Amazing Spider-Man

Marvel’s Kevin Feige to Produce Next Installment of the Spider-Man Franchise with Amy Pascal

                    (Culver City, California, and Burbank, 

California February 09, 2015) – Sony Pictures Entertainment and Marvel
Studios announced today that Sony is bringing Marvel into the amazing
world of Spider-Man.
Under the deal, the new Spider-Man will first
appear in a Marvel film from Marvel’s Cinematic Universe (MCU). Sony
Pictures will thereafter release the next installment of its $4 billion
Spider-Man franchise, on July 28, 2017, in a film that will be
co-produced by Kevin Feige and his expert team at Marvel and Amy Pascal,
who oversaw the franchise launch for the studio 13 years ago. Together,
they will collaborate on a new creative direction for the web slinger.
Sony Pictures will continue to finance, distribute, own and have final
creative control of the Spider-Man films.
Marvel and Sony Pictures are also exploring opportunities to integrate characters from the MCU into future Spider-Man films.
The new relationship follows a decade of
speculation among fans about whether Spider-Man – who has always been an
integral and important part of the larger Marvel Universe in the comic
books – could become part of the Marvel Universe on the big
screen. Spider-Man has more than 50 years of history in Marvel’s world,
and with this deal, fans will be able to experience Spider-Man taking
his rightful place among other Super Heroes in the MCU.
Bob Iger, Chairman and CEO, The Walt Disney
Company said: “Spider-Man is one of Marvel’s great characters, beloved
around the world. We’re thrilled to work with Sony Pictures to bring the
iconic web-slinger into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which opens up
fantastic new opportunities for storytelling and franchise building.”
“We always want to collaborate with the best
and most successful filmmakers to grow our franchises and develop our
characters. Marvel, Kevin Feige and Amy, who helped orchestrate this
deal, are the perfect team to help produce the next chapter of
Spider-Man,” said Michael Lynton, Chairman and CEO of Sony Pictures
Entertainment. “This is the right decision for the franchise, for our
business, for Marvel, and for the fans.”
“Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios share a
love for the characters in the Spider-Man universe and have a long,
successful history of working together. This new level of collaboration
is the perfect way to take Peter Parker’s story into the future,” added
Doug Belgrad, president, Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture
“I am thrilled to team with my friends at
Sony Pictures along with Amy Pascal to produce the next Spider-Man
movie,” said Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. "Amy has been deeply
involved in the realization on film of one of the world’s most beloved
characters. Marvel’s involvement will hopefully deliver the creative
continuity and authenticity that fans demand from the MCU. I am equally
excited for the opportunity to have Spider-Man appear in the MCU,
something which both we at Marvel, and fans alike, have been looking
forward to for years."
Spider-Man, embraced all over the world, is
the most successful franchise in the history of Sony Pictures, with the
five films having taken in more than $4 billion worldwide.

so looks like sony sold some of their rights to spiderman. wonder if it’ll be a full reboot or if they are gonna keep andrew Garfield around.

Not sure if Andrew Garfield wants to do more. I thought I heard he was done.

Regardless, I can really see the civil war arc coming along here. I think they’ll probably do a 3 part series of movies for it.

No more Spider-Man movies, please. I think we’ve had enough.

Garfield is confirmed out. I have tired of the spider man movies but if Marvel can start steering them instead of Sony I have faith.

doing the civil war arc would be tough and i actually don’t want them to do it. For me there was a lot of crap in there that I did not like so i am hoping they don’t unless they change a bit of it. just my opinion though. I with lala. I think they messed up spider-man to many times.

There has been a lot of speculation that they want Phase 3 to be the Civil War story line. I believe that was the rumored direction they wanted Capt America 3 to go.

Spiderman 1 and 2 are good, 3 wasnt and raimi admits that’s was his fault and he should of let somebody else do it.

The amazing spiderman was pretty good story wise. Iv like they killed off gwen. But then the movie kept going, and I wasnt a bog fan of shocker.

As far as civil war. Marvel said capt America will do civil war. That’s a lot for one movie. 3rd avenged movie will deal with thanos directly to close ot that arch. I can’t look at the time line now but that might be too big of a gap btween avenged 4 and capt 3.

I just wanna see punished back on action. And with civil war coming up. There is a good chance he pops up.

Nah they still need to do the infinity war. Supposed to be two movies for that. after the civil war movie. which i am weary about.

They are doing civil war(confirmed) starting with cap America 3. Spider makes first appearance there. Also, marvel is moving 3 movies up by six Months to fit his appearance in. That is prolly the best news. I hate waiting.

That’s because he has soooo much more going on. :sweat_smile:


hm… so then all of civil war is in one movie??? that sounds like a lot for 2… even 3 hours.

Some good info on Civil War.
