This week we heard the news that American film and comic company, Marvel has just obtained the rights to beloved character Spiderman from Sony Pictures Entertainment. This means that the current series of Sony’s The Amazing Spiderman franchise has come to a sudden end and will be rebooted in upcoming Marvel projects. The article did not give a lot of information regarding the situation other than it was something that Marvel had been “looking forward to for years.” We do not know exactly how long this deal was being discussed for but cannot have been long as Sony was planning another 2 films to its franchise as well as a spin off which they will still produce but have now delayed.
