Sony is being allowed to keep distributing and whatnot their Spider-Man films but Marvel's head honcho Kevin Feige will now be calling the shots creatively to make sure they only make movies that stay true to the sourse material and fall in to continuity with all the other Marvel movies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The first time you see the "New Spider-Man"  will be featured in a upcoming Marvel film (my money is on Captain America Civil War) and then a new movie with Sony distributing it July 28th 2017!!!!!!!!!!

Marvel fans come and rejoice with me as the prodigal son has returned to his family. Seriously, I have so little to enjoy in my life that this news has made my bloody day :P

Here's the original article in full if you want to read it:

Sony Pictures Entertainment and Marvel Studios announced today that Sony is bringing Marvel into the amazing world of Spider-Man.

Under the deal, the new Spider-Man will first appear in a Marvel film from Marvel's Cinematic Universe (MCU). Sony Pictures will thereafter release the next installment of its $4 billion Spider-Man franchise, on July 28, 2017, in a film that will be co-produced by Kevin Feige and his expert team at Marvel and Amy Pascal, who oversaw the franchise launch for the studio 13 years ago. Together, they will collaborate on a new creative direction for the web slinger. Sony Pictures will continue to finance, distribute, own and have final creative control of the Spider-Man films.

Marvel and Sony Pictures are also exploring opportunities to integrate characters from the MCU into future Spider-Man films.

The new relationship follows a decade of speculation among fans about whether Spider-Man – who has always been an integral and important part of the larger Marvel Universe in the comic books – could become part of the Marvel Universe on the big screen. Spider-Man has more than 50 years of history in Marvel's world, and with this deal, fans will be able to experience Spider-Man taking his rightful place among other Super Heroes in the MCU.

Bob Iger, Chairman and CEO, The Walt Disney Company said: "Spider-Man is one of Marvel's great characters, beloved around the world. We're thrilled to work with Sony Pictures to bring the iconic web-slinger into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which opens up fantastic new opportunities for storytelling and franchise building."

"We always want to collaborate with the best and most successful filmmakers to grow our franchises and develop our characters. Marvel, Kevin Feige and Amy, who helped orchestrate this deal, are the perfect team to help produce the next chapter of Spider-Man," said Michael Lynton, Chairman and CEO of Sony Pictures Entertainment. "This is the right decision for the franchise, for our business, for Marvel, and for the fans."

"Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios share a love for the characters in the Spider-Man universe and have a long, successful history of working together. This new level of collaboration is the perfect way to take Peter Parker's story into the future," added Doug Belgrad, president, Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group.

"I am thrilled to team with my friends at Sony Pictures along with Amy Pascal to produce the next Spider-Man movie," said Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. "Amy has been deeply involved in the realization on film of one of the world’s most beloved characters. Marvel's involvement will hopefully deliver the creative continuity and authenticity that fans demand from the MCU. I am equally excited for the opportunity to have Spider-Man appear in the MCU, something which both we at Marvel, and fans alike, have been looking forward to for years."

Spider-Man, embraced all over the world, is the most successful franchise in the history of Sony Pictures, with the five films having taken in more than $4 billion worldwide.

Hey again joe I got a drawing up of my Torrence Beowulf character up in my scraps if you want to look at it. Now you can finally get a reference to the 4-armed blacksmith character. You might have already started him and asked me what he should look like and I remember all the times I responded were with a convoluted inconclusive answer (or at least that's what I remember), but now there's a picture that provides some reference as to what I would want it to look like.

I would post a link but I'm sending this from my iPhone so I don't know how to do that with iOS. However the picture is in my scraps so just go to my profile page and look there.

Hey joe, I got this person to make a rendering of a female N7 slayer operative that turned out pretty well. I would post a link to it, but I'm posting from my iPhone and do not know how to post links with this OS. So, if you haven't already, look into my favorites under the mass effect folder or look at the newest favorites on the front page. The only thing I can complain about are the shoulder pads, which last I heard she was attempting to align them with the arms. However the way they are now may be her attempting to do so (I assume the artist is a she with a name like Gina. I don't know any guys named Gina).

I'm not sure if you ever planned on rendering my OCs the Masako twins or maybe it was just the 4-armed smith character, but I do have some drawings of them that I may post here as soon as my computer gets fixed. I got a new printer/scanner/fax that's wireless (so I'll either be able to post my artwork more often or have another POS holding me back). It might be possible for me to post them with my phone, but it's also possible that it's already screwed up.
