Earlier tonight Marvel and Sony jointly announced that Spider-Man will finally be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the character was sold in the 1990s. This is great news for every Marvel Studio fan who has longed to see Spider-Man appear alongside Iron Man, Captain America and Thor. The announcement also revealed that a brand new Spider-Man film will debut in 2017 being co-produced by Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures presumably with a new actor. Unfortunately, this forced Marvel to push back some of their already announced solo films. Spider-Man will be released on July 28th, 2017 pushing Thor: Ragnarok to November 3rd, 2017. This then pushed Black Panther from November 2017 to July 6th, 2018. Lastly, this pushed Captain Marvel to November 2nd 2018 and Inhumans to July 12th. 2019. Both Avengers: Infinity War Part’s I and II are expected to be released on schedule.
Sony has since revealed that they will not be forging ahead with The Sinister Six in 2016 and will be delayed indefinitely.
