BREAKING: Spider-Man has joined the MCU!

From The Verge:

Spider-Man will appear in upcoming Marvel movies. Sony Pictures has announced a deal with Marvel that will see the web slinger appear in an as-yet-unspecified movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe — the same universe that contains Iron Man, Thor, and the rest of the Avengers.

The timing of the deal means Spider-Man’s likely to make his first Marvel movie appearance in Captain America: Civil War, but the agreement doesn’t mean that Sony is giving up the movie rights to the character. The next Sony Pictures Spider-Man movie is due on July 28th, 2017, and the deal works both ways — Sony Pictures said it was also “exploring opportunities to integrate characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe into future Spider-Man films.

Can you say Avengers 2 Post Credit Scene?  I can.

Seriously though, this is a HUGE deal for Marvel as they have finally made the first step in wrestling the rights back to one of their most popular characters from Sony.   I wonder if Andrew Garfield is attached to this or if Marvel has insisted on recasting him?   Here is the link to Marvel's Press Release.
