So as per the news article by marvel.com, Spiderman after a long awaiting will finally be coming to marvel cinematic universe!
So what are we supposed to expect from the arrival of the friendly neighborhood hero into the realms of the cinematic avengers, or lets say a solo franchise?
I have tried to focus this article as per the news published by marvel.com, and they are as following:
1. A Reboot:
"Under the deal, the new Spider-Man will first appear in a Marvel film from Marvel's Cinematic Universe (MCU)", are the words written in the article.
So clearly we are set to see a new actor playing the masked hero, which means Garfield is out. Or, we could still see Garfield as the "new spiderman" - New meaning new to the marvel cinematic universe. I absolutely love him as spider-man.
If he IS to go, then i would love to see a COMPLETELY new spidey. By which i mean marvel seeking out for a new spidey, like Miles Morales or Superior spider-man. (Ok civil war needs peter parker as per the comics, but the cinematic universe has already twisted various storylines before, So it could kill peter parker and let doc octopus install his mind in parker's body and be the superior spiderman) (Crazy theory). But, we will still be seeing peter parker in the universe.
That is because, Doug Belgrad, president, Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group pointed that "This new level of collaboration is the perfect way to take Peter Parker's story into the future". So, yeah we are definitely seeing peter again as the spider-man. And a new form. ( P.S. My money is on Daniel Radcliffe or Jake Gyllenhaal as the new Peter Parker.)
2. A blissful collaboration:
Michael Lynton, Chairman and CEO of Sony Pictures Entertainment stated that "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".
The new collaboration will surely create amazing potentials for peter's story to flourish. We could see amazing comic storylines and a refreshed Spider-man franchise which will, hopefully, be stable this time which will then run for an interesting series.
3. New Characters:
There are so many potential characters that marvel can now ponder upon with the addition of the spider-man franchise into its cinematic universe. Some of the Characters Marvel could use are:
C. The sinister six
D. The Inheritors
F. I REALLY WANT KING-PIN AS THE VILLAIN!!
4. A room for spider-man
Marvel has pushed some films to make room for the web slinger (the names in bold have been shifted for Spider-man):
Avengers: Age of Ultron: May 1, 2015
Ant-Man: July 17, 2015
Captain America: Civil War: May 6, 2016
Doctor Strange: November 4, 2016
Guardians of the Galaxy 2: May 5, 2017
Spider-Man: July 28th, 2017
Thor: Ragnarok: November 3rd, 2017
Avengers: Infinity War, Part 1: May 4, 2018
Black Panther: July 6th, 2018
Captain Marvel: November 2nd, 2018
Avengers: Infinity War, Part 2: May 3, 2019
Inhumans: July 12, 2019
5. Possible ends:
The plans about the spider-man spinoff movies are now no longer possible. BAD NEWS!! Drew Goddard's Sinister Six movie, as well as Alex Kurtzman's Venom spin-off, are both now unlikely to happen. That's not been confirmed, but it's tricky to see where they'll fit in now.
However, with this new collaboration we could see Marvel taking these spin-offs seriously and fulfilling the fans' expectations. Let's hope for the better.
6. Characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe into future Spider-Man films.
Sony Pictures said it was also "exploring opportunities to integrate characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe into future Spider-Man films." which also means good news. We can now not only see spidey as a character in avengers, but the characters like captain america and thor build up their hold in the spider-man movie.
As sony mentioned about exploring opportunities, we still need to wait for the big announcements the companies will make.
However, I would love to see spiderman and hulk together in a movie.
7. Spidey's Appearance:
So which film will spider-man first appear on?
Age of ultron and Ant-man are clearly not in the answers. The most possible one is Captain America : Civil War, since the story supports Spider-man's grand entry.
Marvel could still make a new video within a week or so for the post credits scene of Age of Ultron showing Spider-man doing something. I would love that!!!!!! Only mentioning his name in the movie would kick-ass!!
NOW FOX NEEDS to make a deal with marvel!! I NEED to see wolverine in the avengers movies before I die!!
Are you guys up for spider-man finally joining the marvel cinematic universe? I surely am.
