In case you haven't heard yet, Marvel Studios will be co-producing a new Spider-Man franchise for Sony Picutres, and the webslinger will now be part of Marvel's cinematic universe. After Spidey enters the MCU in a forthcoming Marvel Studios film, he'll begin his new franchise with his own film on July 28th, 2017. Some of you may have realized that summer date was the announced release for Thor: Ragnarok when Marvel had their big Phase Three presentation last year, and Marvel has addressed that fact by shifting some of their dates from 2017 onward, beginning with Thor: Ragnarok moving to November 3rd, 2017.
In addition, Black Panther has been shifted back to July 6th, 2018, while Captain Marvel moves to November 2nd, 2018, and Inhumans now has a July 12th, 2019 release. As for the two-part The Avengers: Infinity War, each movie will still arrive on May 4th, 2018 and May 3rd, 2019. This is such huge news that it sent a shockwave of time through the rest of the Marvel cinematic universe. It's so nice to have Spider-Man back home (for the most part), and knowing that we'll finally get to see everyone's favorite webslinger swinging around Stark Tower in New York City. Excited?
