Spider-man Returns to Marvel

So big geek news Sony and Marvel made a joint announcement today, Spider-man will be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The reason this is such a huge thing is that Sony owns the rights to the Cinematic version of Spider-man, they acquired them years before Marvel that is, ever came to be.

Spider-man has been such a huge part of the Marvel universe for over 50 years and we had heard rumors that this might be happening but with two very large companies there is a lot of red tape.

We don't know all the details, all we know at this moment is that Spider-man will show up in one of the already announced Marvel titles, rumor has it that it's going to be in Captain America: Civil War since his character did play a big part in the comic books. After his appearance in one of the Marvel movies there will be another stand alone Spider-man movie.

Whats crazy is this will be the third time they have re-booted Spider-man as neither Tobey Maguire nor Andrew Garfield will be reprising the role of Peter Parker / Spider-man.

They also announced that they are working on getting some Marvel Cinematic characters in the next Spider-man movie.. so it looks like the two companies are gonna play nice and will be getting a lot of crossover.

Now if Fox would do the same for Fantastic Four and The X-Men life would be grand.
