Marvel Studios Wants 'Spider-Man' For 'Avengers: Infinity War'; Solo Film in 2019?

Over the last several weeks we have gotten word through the infamous Sony Hack that Sony and Marvel came close to a deal that would allow Spider-Man to finally crossover into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and appear in Captain America: Civil War. Well of course talks broke down and the "shipped sailed" on that idea with Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) assuming that lead role. Well Marvel and Sony are still apparently in discussions to have Spider-Man appear in the MCU eventually and Marvel has just the movie for him. According to Val Broeksmit (via Comic Book Movie) who dug through more Sony emails found that Andrew Gumpert the President of Worldwide Business and Operations for Columbia Pictures (Subsidiary of Sony Pictures) told Sony Pictures chairman Amy Pascal if the deal goes through with Marvel. Marvel Studios wouldn't want the next Marvel/Sony Spider-Man film to be a continuation of Civil War but be a teenage superhero who lives in the aftermath. That there will be two sides for all superheros. In the purposed Civil War cameo it would have Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) giving Peter Parker the infamous Iron Spider suit seen in the Civil War comic. He would also meet Black Widow (Scarlett Johannson) as well as Captain America (Chris Evans) himself.

He also goes onto mention that Marvel wants to have a solo flick out by 2019 with Spider-Man having a semi-major role in The Avengers: Infinity War Part's I & II in 2018 and 2019 specifically. In a way this is a lot like how The CW introduced Flash into the Arrow-verse. First letting him appear on Arrow as a "back door pilot" before debuting in his own show a year later. This is how Marvel seems to be treating their introduction to Peter Parker. First appearing in Civil War and Infinity War before getting his own film a year later.

All will be known come January when Marvel and Sony hold a meeting regarding this Spider-Man deal. It may actually come to pass with Sony Pictures losing tens of millions of dollars per day since the initial hack as well as an extra $75 Million after cancelling all plans to release The Interview starring Seth Rogen and James Franco.
