Hey all…Steve here.
In a move that has excited the entire Marvel fanbase, Spider-Man is coming home! What this means, essentially, is that Spidey can officially become a part of the Avengers films, the superhero alliance to which Peter Parker contributes heavily in the Marvel comics. It has already happened in the cartoon versions as he is with his Avenger buddies in Ultimate Spider-Man (still on Netflix).

What??? Is everyone else feeling a tingling of their Spidey sense?
Spider-Man plays a huge part in the crossover storyline which follows the U.S. government’s passing of the Superhero Registration Act which mandates that super-powered humans make themselves part of an official registry, ostensibly for the purposes of accountability. Captain America, who, of course, fought in the World War II, is opposed to the idea, while Iron Man is for it. Spider-Man is caught in between them.
The next big piece of the puzzle will be to see who is going to play Spider-Man, as it has been widely speculated that Andrew Garfield is out.
The Spider-Man character was licensed by Sony back in 1999, before Marvel Studios had even formed. With five films grossing more than $4 billion worldwide, the Spider-Man franchise remains the most successful in Sony’s history. I guess it comes as little surprise that Sony will still have final say in the creative direction of Spider-Man. That is a minor snag in what is a great day for Spider-Man and Marvel fans in general. The bottom line is that he is free to roam around the Marvel Universe!
What do you guys think about the new and who do you think should play the next Spider-Man?
