The Real Reason Disney Let Marvel Make Spider-Man: Homecoming For Sony

As the world anticipates the release of "Spider-man: Homecoming" this July, new details reveal how Spider-man got to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). When Sony gave Marvel the green light to use the popular character in their cinematic universe, "Spider-Man: Homecoming" came to life.

Tom Holland is our new Spider-Man and he's a terrific choice - a little pale, a little splotchy, and - even though he's a 21-year-old Englishman - a totally, believably NY teen.

Sony produced Sam Raimi's "Spider-man" in 2002 which scored $403 million domestically. That would solve a practical problem for Marvel Studios (read: they wouldn't have to pay RDJ exorbitant amounts of money to appear in their movies anymore), and from a story perspective, it would send shockwaves through future films. They lived through the bloated and haphazard Spider-Man 3, then they lived through an ill-conceived reboot that brought them yet another origin story movie, followed by an also ill-conceived mystery surrounding Peter Parker's parents that just bogged everything down. You either feel really, really invested in these characters or you just love yourself a cool superhero flick that looks like all the rest.

Other guests on the carpet included Jon Favreau, Jason Derulo, Robert Downey Jr., Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Karen Gillan and more.

Meanwhile, newly-minted Spider-Man, Tom Holland, arrived in costume, mingling with fans who took selfies with the masked superhero.


Marvel and Sony Pictures have released several new images from the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming film.

Next month, audiences are in for a real treat when Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters. "That was our whole idea about introducing him in [Captain America:] Civil War", he said.

That being said, for men in Hollywood, sometimes duty calls. It sounds like Homecoming stands as a proper movie of its own.

Now that many critics have seen the film, it currently holds a 92 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

Rest easy, continuity crusaders: Marvel Studios knows exactly where the inevitable Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel fits into its overall narrative plan.
