Well the all but confirmed rumor is basically confirmed as The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Sony and Marvel have reached a major agreement to share the future of the Spider-Man franchise.

The details are slim, pretty much non existent basically, but it’s looking like Spidey will show up in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War (if you ask me my money is on a post credits Avengers appearance).

THR is saying that post Spider-Man’s MCU appearance he will get another stand-alone film from Sony in 2017 and that Sony will retain “final creative control, and continue to finance, distribute , and own the films.” Let’s hope Sony learns to step back and not interfere like that did with Spider-Man 3 and Amazing Spider-Man 2.

On top of that, it looks like the door is open for MCU characters to appear in Spider-Man movies as well.

This is really great news and gets us ever closer to a massive Marvel Cinematic Universe. Maybe we can hope to see Fox and Marvel mend fences and get a complete MCU? Probably not though.

There is some bad news here though. Andrew Garfield, who I thought was an excellent Peter Parker/Spider-Man is not expected to return.
