[Editorial] What Spidey in the MCU means for Infinity War

So, thanks to this Marvel/Sony agreement Sony is pumping out a new Spider-Man movie in 2017 and probably setting the record for shortest period of time before rebooting a franchise, for the second time, in the process.

This means that there will be some shuffling of the formally announced MCU line up.


The new Spidey movie will take the slot originally held by Thor Ragnarok, which unfortunately means that some our more anticipated Marvel properties have to be pushed back. Which means; Thor taking Black Panther’s original slot, Black Panther taking Captain Marvel’s, Captain Marvel taking the Inhumans slot, and finally Inhumans getting a new release date of July 12th 2019?

What’s curious is that the dates for Avengers Infinity War part 1 and 2 remained the same. So the question stands; will all of these movies play out chronologically, and if so does that mean we won’t see any Inhumans until the Avengers have already taken down the mad titan. Sure you could introduce them in Infinity War part 2, and with the help of the Inhumans story line agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is taking, they may just be able to pull off such a feat.

So what do you guys think about Marvel changing their plans around to accompany Spider-Man.

Personally I was pretty stoked to be getting three Marvel properties in 2017. Yeah I know Spidey is technically in the MCU now and that means there can be MCU characters in his stand alone; however I don’t think we’ll see any in this first revamping of him. Even if we did, it just wouldn’t be the same as a new Marvel studios movie. So now, I guess I’ll just have to hold out until 2018.
