Captain America: Civil War is going to be a huge movie.

That means that Spider-Man will appear in Marvel Studios films, alongside Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow, and the rest of the Avengers. It also means that Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures will be co-producing a new Spider-Man story that will hit theaters in Summer 2017. Read the rest of this entry
