Kevin Feige, the self-proclaimed head of the MCU, announced in a press release on the early morning of Sept. 27 that Disney and Sony will continue to collaborate on Spider-Man movies.

“I am thrilled that Spidey’s journey in the MCU will continue, and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited that we get to keep working on it,” Feige wrote.

I received the news through an alert from Buzzfeed News. I genuinely didn’t believe it, so I looked it up, and it was true. I was blown away—finally, Disney and Sony came to their senses. Spider-Man has been a part of me since I was a child, so I truly felt like a piece of me was taken away when he left the MCU. Now, my favorite superhero of all time and the person I had always aspired to be (and my Halloween costume this year) is back with the MCU and can finish his arc. 

According to Feige, because of Disney’s new partnership with Sony, Spider-Man can now cross dimensions as seen in the intensely popular animated movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. This opens up a massive door for future franchise opportunities and crossovers concerning the characters from Spider-Verse as well as Marvel. All in all, this is a huge development that restores the MCU back to where it belongs.
