Without a doubt, Spider-Man moving into the Marvel Cinematic Universe was one of the greatest things to ever happen in the genre of superhero movies, and Spider-Man: Homecoming director Jon Watts believes that the MCU is where Peter Parker ultimately belongs.
Speaking to THR, Watts admits:
"That's where he was always meant to be, he was introduced to give a kid's perspective on this crazy world of superheroes, and up until now Spider-Man has been alone."
It really does make sense that Marvel should introduce Peter Parker as a young boy in the MCU since he's basically the stand-in for every other kid in the audience. In that sense, every teenage fan of Marvel can now have someone to identify with, and they can watch Peter Parker grow alongside them onscreen over the years.
Though a lot of fans had become skeptical of the agreement between Marvel and Sony, Watts has stated that there is no expiration date with Spider-Man being in the MCU. What's more, we know that the rest of Sony's spinoff movies like Venom and Silver & Black will also be taking place in the same universe. Good on you Marvel and Sony; showing everyone the benefits of sharing.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is set for a release this July 7.
