Yes you heard right, Peter Parker aka Spiderman aka Tom Holland himself is back as the webslinger in his (true) home, the Marvel Cinematic Universe after it was previously reported that the "door had closed" on any possible deal being reached between partnering studios, Disney and Sony.
In the shock announcement made today from the two studios, it was revealed that Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, will produce the third film in the "Spider-Man: Homecoming" saga. This was a welcome surprise for many fans who had petitioned for the web-slinger to be kept in the MCU and not join Sony's new 'Spider-Verse'. However, those fans- despite small in number- who wanted Spidey to join the Sonyverse, are also appeased as it was revealed by Feige that Peter Parker will be swinging across cinematic universes, with the 3rd and 4th films to include elements from both universes. In exchange for lending Feige’s guiding hand, Marvel and Disney will receive approximately 25% of the film's profits and Disney will retain its merchandising rights as before. As part of the arrangement, Spider-Man will also appear in one future Marvel Studios film.
Feige, who himself had his own breaking story earlier this week (see here) released a statement saying: "I am thrilled that Spidey’s journey in the MCU will continue, and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited that we get to keep working on it. Spider-Man is a powerful icon and hero whose story crosses all ages and audiences around the globe. He also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes, so as Sony continues to develop their own Spidey-verse you never know what surprises the future might hold."
What are your thoughts regarding this breaking news? Are you happy Spider-Man will continue in the MCU for two more films?
