MUMBAI: Sony Pictures Entertainment is bringing Marvel Studios into the amazing world ofSpider-Man.

Under the deal, the newSpider-Manwill first appear in a Marvel film from Marvel's Cinematic Universe (MCU). Sony Pictures will thereafter release the next installment of its $4 billionSpider-Manfranchise, on 28 July, 2017, in a film that will be co-produced by Kevin Feige and his expert team at Marvel and Amy Pascal, who oversaw the franchise launch for the studio 13 years ago.

Together, they will collaborate on a new creative direction for the web slinger. Sony Pictures will continue to finance, distribute, own and have final creative control of theSpider-Manfilms.

Marvel and Sony Pictures are also exploring opportunities to integrate characters from the MCU into futureSpider-Manfilms.

The new relationship follows a decade of speculation among fans about whetherSpider-Man– who has always been an integral and important part of the larger Marvel Universe in the comic books – could become part of the Marvel Universe on the big screen.Spider-Manhas more than 50 years of history in Marvel's world, and with this deal, fans will be able to experienceSpider-Mantaking his rightful place among other Super Heroes in the MCU.

The Walt Disney Company chairman and CEO Bob Iger said, “Spider-Manis one of Marvel's great characters, beloved around the world. We're thrilled to work with Sony Pictures to bring the iconic web-slinger into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which opens up fantastic new opportunities for storytelling and franchise building.”

“We always want to collaborate with the best and most successful filmmakers to grow our franchises and develop our characters. Marvel, Kevin Feige and Amy, who helped orchestrate this deal, are the perfect team to help produce the next chapter of Spider-Man. This is the right decision for the franchise, for our business, for Marvel, and for the fans,” said Sony Pictures Entertainment chairman and CEO Michael Lynton.

“Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios share a love for the characters in theSpider-Manuniverse and have a long, successful history of working together. This new level of collaboration is the perfect way to take Peter Parker's story into the future," added Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group president Doug Belgrad.

“I am thrilled to team with my friends at Sony Pictures along with Amy Pascal to produce the next Spider-Man movie. Amy has been deeply involved in the realization on film of one of the world’s most beloved characters. Marvel's involvement will hopefully deliver the creative continuity and authenticity that fans demand from the MCU. I am equally excited for the opportunity to have Spider-Man appear in the MCU, something which both we at Marvel, and fans alike, have been looking forward to for years,” said Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.
Spider-Man,embraced all over the world, is the most successful franchise in the history of Sony Pictures, with the five films having taken in more than $4 billion worldwide.
