Sony Almost Allowed 'Spider-Man' To Be in 'Captain America: Civil War'


For the past couple weeks a slew of importation has leaked from the departments over at Sony Pictures from a a group of hackers called #GOP. Some of the documents included the leak of several Sony films including Fury and Annie. As well as salary and earning readings for top Sony executives. Of course many nerds joked "Wouldn't it be great if they hacked the Spider-Man rights back over to Marvel" well something like that actually kinda happened!

The Wall Street Journal got emails between Sony's motion picture chief Amy Pascal and Disney CEO Bob Iger about Spider-Man and the current Marvel cinematic universe. The emails were dated on October 30th had the two discussing a way to have Spider-Man show up in Captain America: Civil War then have his own trilogy with Sony and Marvel sharing the rights:"Sony Pictures president Doug Belgrad tells Ms. Pascal about a potential scenario that would see Marvel produce a new trilogy of Spider-Man movies while Sony retains 'creative control, marketing and distribution." Unfortunately for you true believers talks once again broke down between the two company's and Marvel has made Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) the "Spider-Man" of the upcoming Civil War storyline. This would be the second time talks broke down between the two company's about Spider-Man. The first being OSCORP Tower was almost in The Avengers skyline back in 2012.

However a "Spidey Summit" will now be held in January to determine what Sony will do with the character after the set back that was The Amazing Spider-Man 2. This summit will include the villain team-up The Sinister Six as well as the female spidey universe film long rumored to be Black Cat.
