For those who aren’t aware of the significance of this news ought to know that Marvel Studios cannot make a Spider-Man movie. The reason for that is because the film rights for the web slinger belong to a different studio, Sony. For years comic book fans have been shouting for Sony to give up, or sell the rights for Spider-Man to Marvel, and in recent years have demanded a crossover for Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There have been rumors of talks between Sony and Marvel to find some sort of agreement into bringing the Spider-Man character into a film with Iron Man and Captain America, but those have only been rumors, until now.
Sony at the moment is going through a crisis right now with hackers releasing films like The Interview and Annie, before their scheduled release date. The damage doesn’t stop there, as emails from the company were also released onto the internet. One of those email were in regards to Sony and Marvel having serious talks into bringing the Spider-Man character into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, more specifically into Marvel’s upcoming Captain America: Civil War film.
