"Sony Hack" Documents Confirm Marvel Wants Spider-Man For CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

Leaked emails from the "Sony Hack" have found their way online which reveal that Marvel approached Sony about taking over the Spider-Man franchise and including him in Civil War. Is it going to happen? Hit the jump for details on that, an animated movie, and much more...


The "Sony Hack" has seen a number of emails and confidential Sony Pictures documents leaked online by what are believed to be North Korean hackers retaliating against the upcoming release of The Interview starring Seth Rogen and James Franco. Details about why the Steve Jobs biopic moved to Universal have been making headlines, while it's believed that major Spectre (a.k.a. James Bond 24) spoilers are now also online. Now, it's Spidey's turn, and there's a lot to digest here. 

According to The Wall Street Journal, emails to and from Sony’s motion picture chief Amy Pascal have been released which reveal discussions between her, various Sony executives, and Marvel/Walt Disney owner Robert Iger among others. In one dated October 30th, "Sony Pictures president Doug Belgrad tells Ms. Pascal about a potential scenario that would see Marvel produce a new trilogy of Spider-Man movies while Sony retains 'creative control, marketing and distribution.'" In another, Pascal tells a business partner that Marvel want to include Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War, a series 
which saw the character reveal his identity to the world. 

Sadly, these talks apparently broke down, and a "Spidey Summit" is planned for January which will see Sony decide where to take the franchise next. According to the site, "Among projects in development are an animated Spider-Man comedy that would be produced by Chris Miller and Phil Lord, the team behind “22 Jump Street” and “The Lego Movie,” as well as previously disclosed Spider-Man spin-offs focused on villain team Sinister Six, super-foe Venom, and women from the webslinger’s life." So, Spider-Man could have become part of the MCU...thoughts?
