Spider-Man fans agree that their is no 'Avengers' without Spider-Man, which has lead to a historic deal among Marvel, Disney, and Sony. The deal, which would have normally cost A LOT of money, is actually free and will benefit all parties involved.

True Spider-Man fans out there know that Spider-Man is originally property of Marvel. However, since Sony has controlled the rights of Spider-Man in the film world since 1999, this made it very difficult for Marvel to take Spider-Man and put him in their movies.

Many would agree that Spider-Man belongs in the world of Marvel, who already owns everything besides the film character himself. Now, they will be able to bring Spidey home and watch him in awesome films, like 'Captain America: Civil War.'

Why was the deal so simple?

Once Marvel takes Spider-Man and puts him in their new movies, 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' and 'X-Men: Days of Future Past', as well as others, both parties will benefit, without one owing a lot of money to the other.

Marvel will finally get to use Spider-Man in their films, and Sony will get exposure for their own independent Spider-Man movies, a series which is certainly not over yet.

This deal is a win-win for both teams, and when fans pile into the theaters to watch Spider-Man in the Marvel films, both will get a large financial bonus, whether it be short term or long term. 

Those who love the Sony films don't need to worry-the Spider-Man character is only taking a short break while he appears in the Marvel films. In the meantime, Sony will re-cast Spider-Man for a new film that would feature Spider-Man back in high school, and Andrew Garfield will no longer play the role, according to Variety.
