If there's a fan out there who thinks Marvel went through the trouble of negotiating shared custody of Spider-Man with Sony because they felt they could get something mediocre out of the character, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige assures you that the bar is set at least a little bit higher.

"Making that agreement ... was great, and was really amazing, and on a personal level making these movies, it means a lot because I think we can do great things with Spider-Man," Feige told IGN. "I think Spider-man can serve great purpose in our universe and that's where he belongs. That was what was unique about him in the comics was not that he was the only superhero in the world; it's that he was a totally different kind of superhero when compared against all the other ones in the Marvel universe at the time."

You know what they say: "With great purpose, comes great profitability,"…wait, that's not right…


Spider-Man will make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Captain America: Civil War. Check out when Civil War and other movies are coming out in's Movie Release Schedule.
