Spider Man

It seems like Peter Parker has changed more faces than he has suits in the past 20 years. Since its creation by co-creators Stan Lee and Steve Ditko in 1962, Spider-Man has become one of Marvel’s most popular and commercially successful superheroes to date. Over the past two decades alone, the Spider-Man franchise has grown with the release of seven live-action movies, three television series, two movies featuring Spider-Man as an Avenger, one cameo in Captain America: Civil War, and one animated movie. Quickly after Spider-Man’s debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it was reported that Disney and Sony Pictures were unable to reach a deal that would lengthen Spider-Man’s time in the MCU. But like he does in the movies, Tom Holland, who plays the newest iteration of Peter Parker, was able to swoop in and save the day. The new deal reached will allow Spidey to remain in the Marvel Universe for at least one more film. The next movie is set to release on July 16, 2021, and will be produced by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. It was definitely a close one, but the legacy of Spider-Man continues. Even though a deal has been reached, the question still remains; where will he go next?
