Sony and Marvel have finally struck a deal! Spider-Man will be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a reboot of movies.
Andrew Garfield will no longer be Peter Parker. There is no confirmed actor yet. Sony will still maintain the financial and creative rights to the character, but doubtlessly Disney will have some input to their Universe.
The new movie will hit theaters on July 28, 2017. It’s assumed that Spider-Man’s first appearance will be in Captain America: Civil War. There are a number of movies being rearranged to make room for this film. The new Phase 3 looks like this:
- 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

- Captain Marvel: November 2nd, 2018
