After years and years of keeping Marvel Studio's Marvel Cinematic Universe time-line continuity in order. A feat that no other studio has come close to achieving.
It now appears that it will be Sony and Marvel's team-up film, the highly anticipated Spider-Man: Homecoming that will lead to the beginning of the end for our beloved Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Here's what Spider-Man: Homecoming producer Eric Carroll revealed about Sony's Spider-Man and how his time-line won't really fit in with the overall Marvel Cinematic Universe, but they don't care.
"There will be some awkward chronology in that the movie comes out almost two years after Civil War, but we’re playing it like it’s a few months after Civil War. It hasn’t been years since Tony called him back. It came down to one of things we wanted to do was keep him in high school as long as possible. Let’s have him do something fun and different. Sony came to ourselves when we sat down and we thought, ‘Why do this version?’ And it is because we can really do a high school. Show that this is a young hero. Otherwise you have seen it all before…"
So it seems like Spider-Man's time timeline will kind of be slowed down, while everything over in the MCU will be going regular speed? I mean, if it works? Hopefully fans won't begin to notice huge screw-ups with the continuity over the next few years.
So what do you guys think? Could Sony's half-ass attempts to keep more control over the Spider-verse eventually ruin the beautiful continuity that Kevin Feige and crew have worked so hard at keeping together?
