When did they first announce the Spider-Man movie coming to the MCU?

On February 9, 2015, Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios jointly announced that Spider-Man will join the MCU. Sony would then release a Spider-Man movie that was co-produced by Feige and Pascal. The Spider-Man movies would still be owned, financed, distributed, and subject to ultimate creative control by Sony Pictures.

According to Feige, Spider-Man has been a part of the MCU since at least October 2014. The usage of the Peter Parker version of the character was hinted at by Marvel Entertainment CCO Joe Quesada the following month, and Feige confirmed it in April. In June of that year, Feige emphasised that because the original Sony arrangement was “quite particular… with a limited amount of back and forth allowed,” the character could not have appeared in any MCU television series.

In November 2016, Spider-Man actor Tom Holland said that he has contracts for “three Spider-Man movies and three solo movies,” according to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In June 2017, Holland, Feige, and Jon Watts, the director of the MCU Spider-Man movies, revealed that the young Peter Parker saved by Tony Stark from a drone in Iron Man 2 (2010) while wearing an Iron Man mask was indeed a young Peter Parker. This validated the character’s MCU debut.

Marvel Studios and Feige were reportedly no longer involved in any upcoming Spider-Man movies since Disney and Sony were unable to come to a new deal for those movies in August 2019. Deadline Hollywood said that Disney had hoped for a “50/50 co-financing structure between the studios” for upcoming films, with an option to extend the agreement to further Spider-Man-related movies. Sony rejected this offer and did not make a counteroffer.
