So Marvel is a big deal, right? And this year’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 could’ve gone better, right? Yes and Yes. Looking in, Spider-Man is one of the few franchises that Marvel hasn’t been able to reel back in since going Blockbuster several years back.
New intel suggests that Marvel has guided the franchise to course-correct itself in a possible crossover for the coming Captain America: Civil War. Wow, this is big. This means that Spider-Man could be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe going forward, at least in some capacity, possibly canonizing The Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel as well as the upcoming spin-off The Sinister Six. Big deal indeed.
Now this isn’t exactly the first time Marvel has guided a franchise. Essentially it happened in a far lesser capacity with The Incredible Hulk.
I’m excited as can be with this news. I wasn’t hating on the newest Spidey outing, but it could definitely could have used some assistance picking itself up. What do you think? Is the Marvel Cinematic Universe about to get a whole lot bigger? Let me know!
