Every movie fan had their dream come true when Sony and Marvel announced that Spider-Man will be joining Marvel Cinematic Universe and that Marvel will produce next Spider-Man film. While this is the best thing to happen to Spider-Man after 3 mediocre movies. Spider-Man is way more famous and popular character than most of the MCU properties and yet Sony had no idea what to do with him while MCU grew. Now that Spidey is back home, can we be sure that everything is going to be all-right now?
Here are a few pros and cons about Spider-Man being in MCU.
1 Spider-Man is now an Avenger – A nerd’s dream comes true. For years we have wished for Spider-Man to fight along side Avengers. Nick Fury or Agent Coulson show up and tell Peter about the mystery of his missing Parents and Spider-Man team up with Daredevil. Think about the possibilities they are limitless and they all can come true.
2 Civil War begins – Earlier Black Panther was filling in for Peter Parker stuck between Captain America and Iron Man but now we can see a Civil War movie as it was in the source material.
3 Kevin Feige as Producer – One of the consequences of the deal struck between Marvel and Sony was that Sony would still own the rights to the character of Spider Man, so long as they have a new movie in production at least every five years. Now that Feige is in charge we will finally get a good Spider-Man film.
1. No Andrew Garfield – After this deal Andrew Garfield is probably no more the Masked Menace, the only thing good about last two sucky Spider-Man movie was his portrayal of Peter Parker and that makes me sad.
2. New release dates – All the Marvel properties are now pushed back because of Spider-Man. These are some of the new properties with a lot of potential and people were more excited to see these movies rather than just another Spider-Man movie.
3. Yet another origin story – With rumors of a teenage Spider-Man we might get to see the origin story of Spider-Man again and that is something no one wants to see. We all are bored of Uncle Ben dying again and again. We all know how a radio active spider bites Peter Parker and we all know about Oscorp so please not again.
I am really hopeful about Spider-Man coming to MCU. I hope he just kills it on the screen, I wish if Andrew could reprise his role but whoever does otherwise I guess I’ll have to wait and watch.
