Yes, finally, the rumours have turned to truth. In a landmark move, Sony have decided to, while retaining the rights for, allow Marvel to use the character of SiperMan in their cinematic universe going forward. So yes from now on Marvel can use him when and where they like for the most part, but Sony will still retain his rights, in terms of creative control, financing and distribution. We also know that both companies plan on re-casting the role as well. So what does this really mean going forward? It means for one that fan boys across the world all just had to change their pants. It means certain story lines that we always wanted to see how they would be adapted, now don’t have to go through the major changes we would have expected. It means we could even see a different SpierMan, like a Miles Morales SpiderMan even. It also means that Sony and Marvel can have their cake and eat it too. sony can now piggy back on the good name of Marvel, but they can still make a butt load of money holding on to his rights, while Marvel will ALSO be able to ramp up their box office with the addition of the web slinger.
