Last night, Marvel Studios broke the internet once again by revealing they would co-produce a new Spider-Man movie in 2017 after introducing the character into the Marvel Cinematic Universe via one of their own films. Now, The Wall Street Journal reports that Spidey’s debut feature in the MCU will be none other than Captain America: Civil War, set for release on May 6, 2016.
“Civil War” is also set to introduce Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther into the realm of the MCU in what is described as “a big part” of the film. It seems unlikely that this would change, but alterations are possible now that the web slinger has returned home.
In other Spider-Man news, WSJ also reports that Sony’s Sinister Six feature film remains in development but has been pushed back from its November 2016 release date as the studio “rethinks” their plans for it. The Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard is attached to write and direct the film.
The Amazing Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield will not reprise his role of Peter Parker in the upcoming film, which is scheduled to hit theaters on July 28, 2017. Who would you like to see take on the part in the MCU?
