Sony Pictures Entertainment and Marvel Studios announced a deal that would bring Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

According to Marvel.com, the deal will allow Marvel’s Cinematic Universe to release a new Spider-Man. In addition, Sony Pictures will release the next installment of its $4 billion Spider-Man franchise on July 28, 2017.

The film will be co-produced by Sony and Marvel. Both companies are also exploring opportunities to integrate other Marvel characters in future Spider-Man films.

Spider-Man has always been a Marvel character in the comic books, but a 13-year-old licensing deal with Sony, prevented Marvel from including Spider-Man in its films. 

The new deal has resulted in the dates of future Marvel movies to be changed. Marvel’s “Thor: Ragnarok” will be released on Nov. 3, 2017; “Black Panther” on July 6, 2018; “Captain Marvel” will hit theatres on Nov. 2,2018 and Marvel’s ‘Inhumans” will be released on July 12, 2019, according to ABC News.

The release of “Avengers: Infinity War Part 1” and “Avengers: Infinity War Part 2” have not been changed.
