Spider-Man movies were not mentioned in Marvel’s phase 5 and 6 announcements at Comic-Con, but there’s a reason…
The course of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and upcoming projects were announced at Comic-Con last week. It will be released in November”Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” with the movie ending the 4th phase, all the movies and series in the 5th phase have been announced. Also, the 6th phase will start with the movie “Fantastic 4” and “Avengers: Kang Dynasty” and “Avengers: Two new titles “Secret Wars” Avengers It was also announced that it will end with the movie.
Expected to be released in 2025 Avengers The films will also close the “The Multiverse Saga” era, which Marvel announced for the first time at Comic-Con. It’s no surprise that the near future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is built on multiple universes.
“Avengers: EndgameAfter “in brought time travel to the Marvel universe, the “Loki” series made an introduction to this subject by introducing multiverses. In the continuation, Marvel had the opportunity to examine different stories, timelines and characters using the multiverse concept. In addition to the “What If…?” series, 2021 ‘s blockbuster “Spider-Man: No Way Home” and currently the second most watched movie of 2022 “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” movies were built entirely around this concept.
Hence Spider-Man (Tom Holland) and Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) also became key figures in the “Multiverse Saga”. However, there was no Spider-Man movie among the announced projects, and Spider-Man was not even mentioned. Actually, there is a technical reason for this. Spider-Man’s rights are owned by Sony Pictures, so Sony needs to announce possible Spider-Man movies to come.
The agreement between Sony and Marvel (Disney) allows Spider-Man to be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but Marvel produces Spider-Man movies on behalf of Sony, not Disney. Therefore, it is not appropriate for Marvel Studios under the umbrella of Disney to make a statement about Spider-Man movies at Comic-Con.
In addition to being a Spider-Man movie, one of the movies in the 6th phase, where only 3 movies have been announced yet, there is a high probability that we will encounter a Spider-Man movie in the 5th phase. Apart from these, Spider-Man, who plays a very important role in the multiverse issue, is the ending of the “Multiverse Saga”. Avengers It seems inevitable that it will be in the movies.
