With Spider-Man being taken up by Marvel, there is a blessing for the fans of the comic book dealing with the web-swinging superhero. With Sony and Marvel coming together to restart the Spider-Man franchise, Sony had to bring to an end their plans for The Amazing Spider-Man 3.

The Amazing Spider-Man 3 would have seen Marc Webb finishing his Spider-Man trilogy. However, he doesn’t have any hard feelings for not getting the chance to finish off the trilogy. Marc Webb has in fact gone on to say that he is happy that Spider-Man has been taken up by the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Cinema Blend has reported that Marc Webb has said that the creative team at Marvel will do a great job with the superhero. Spider-Man belongs to the world of Marvel and he is very excited to find out what’s in store for Spider-Man in there.

The Spider-Man has been previously brought to the big screen by Sam Raimi, who directed Toby Maguire in the three films. The Amazing Spider-Man was a second attempt at retelling the story with Andrew Garfield in the role of Spider-Man.

While the first trilogy was a big success, the second two films by Marc Webb didn’t do as well as they were expected to. Sony had plans of including certain spinoffs with venom and a female hero, but then the ideas were shelved since Marvel came into the picture.

Before the Marvel Sony partnership for a new Spider-Man franchise was made official, there were rumors that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 will see Peter Parker developing a potion that will help him bring back lost family members.

Andrew Garfield, who was expected to reprise his role as Spidey in the third part had said that Peter Parker might have to deal with the death of Gwen Stacy in the film.

With Marvel taking the Spider-Man franchise in their own hands, the first thing that they had decided on was to tell the story of the superhero in a way that has never been done before. Everyone knows the story of how Peter Parker was nerd and how he goes on to become a super hero after getting bitten by a radioactive spider.

Marvel decided to focus on Spider-Man as a young teenager, a high school student, something that has never been done before. The earlier films have always touched on that aspect and looked at something else, but the upcoming Spider-Man film will focus on the hero as a high school student.

Marvel plans to introduce the new Spider-Man into their Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War. Jon Watts who set to direct the new Spider-Man movie has confirmed that the wall-crawler will be a high school student in the film.

In an interview with Empire Magazine, Jon Watts said that he excited to work with the new Spider-Man film. He confirmed that Tom Holland is going to play the role of the Spider-Man in the upcoming film.

Jon Watts said that the story and the way it has been told again and again has become old and boring. This time, they will see Peter coming of age in the high school and it will delve deep into that aspect of his life.

Watts said that Tom Holland has just turned 19 years old and he is also very athletic, which makes him perfect for the role of the new Spider-Man that Marvel is going to introduce into their Cinematic Universe. Jon Watt says that Tom Holland can even do a back flip and he is the Spider-Man that they have been looking for.
