In a surprise announcement Spider Man is back in the Marvel universe after Disney with its Marvel division and Sony agree on a deal. The new deal will see Marvel produce a Spider Man film for Sony with a planned release date of July 16th 2021.
Sony will continue to develop their Spider Man universe using some of the other characters in future movies including a sequel to the very successful Venom movie as well as their hit video games.
The new deal also means that Spider Man will appear in a future Marvel movie. The fact Sony controls the rights to Spider Man in my opinion is a plus because it’s a huge franchisee for them and if Disney had Spiderman it might get lost in the multiple Marvel characters Disney has. The announcement of a deal is also good news for Disney who hasn’t always had the best news of late.
