Spidey Could Appear In MCU!!

Latino-Review have weighed in on those leaked details about Spider-Man which found their way online as a result of the "Sony Hack" (something which is proving to be tremendous fun for us movie bloggers). Before we get to the good stuff, let's talk about the spinoffs. Apparently, the big plans that Marvel and DC have led to a "crisis of conifidence" over plans for Spider-Man, perhaps explaining why we've heard nothing about Sinister Six and Venom for quite some time. That female-led spinoff would have apparently focused on some previously unseen characters - because apparently Sony don't realise how much we'd all like to see Black Cat, Spider-Girl, etc. on the big screen - and the Aunt May movie is still (sadly) a very real possibility.

Now, the Marvel Studios deal. According to Sony sources, Sony Pictures didn't actually reject a trilogy of movies that Marvel would produce but not have creative control over (somthing which didn't mae much sense when Sony are the ones who have run the character into the ground). Instead, it was a co-production deal which would have seen Marvel and Sony splitting costs 60/40, with Kevin Feige and company in control of the character and setting him up for appearances in the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, like that rumoured Captain America: Civil War role.

Here's where it gets really interesting though. Sony bosses in Japan are obviously furious about how this hacking scandal has played out, and aren't happy about the way Spider-Man has been handled regardless. They feel that they need to start producing more profitable "quality" films, and as a result, "Sony Japan thinks the Marvel deal for Spider-Man is still on the table and they want to renegotiate as a return to quality, the 60/40 split is can be negotiated and Sony Entertainment’s October hard-line stance of wanting creative control is now mostly moot in the eyes of the higher-ups." This obviously means that we may still see Spider-Man join the MCU! Does anyone else have a horrible feeling that Sony will end up giving a bunch of terrible sounding spinoffs the green light instead though?
