Spider-Man Returns to Marvel With Disney Deal

Updated on

Sony Corp. is returning Spider-Man to the onscreen brotherhood of Marvel superheroes, teaming with Walt Disney Co. on movies featuring the web-slinging crime fighter.

Kevin Feige, president of Disney’s Marvel Studios, and Amy Pascal, the outgoing co-Chairman of Sony Pictures, will co-produce the next “Spider-Man” movie for release in July 2017, according to a statement from the Culver City, California-based unit of Sony on Monday. The superhero will appear earlier in an unnamed Marvel film, and the companies will look for ways to bring other Marvel characters into Spider-Man films.
