While releasing reviews early before the film's domestic debut is typical for Marvel in the past, the timing of Spider-Man's review release has an interesting new wrinkle: unlike other Marvel Studios releases, Spider-Man: Homecoming does not have an global release a week in advance, so (unlike with other releases), reviews being released so early is not necessary. Look out! Here come our seven favourite things about Spider-Man so far.

Sony will continue to produce Spider-Man franchise films was questionable following the announcement of Marvel's production of Spider-Man Homecoming. Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine - distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man - but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened. "They may be different locations, but it will all still be in the same world, and they will be connected to each other as well". But before that moment, he looks a little on edge, perhaps not entirely sure what Amy Pascal is talking about. I suppose it's possible that the universe in which the Spider-Man spin-offs exist could simply be separate from the MCU, but again, that's going to be confusing if Tom Holland appears in both.

So we see that basically Spider-Man is on loan to the MCU, which will feature Tom Holland's Spider-Man interacting with the Avengers and Marvel Studios characters, while we can guess not referencing Venom or Silver Sable and Black Cat. However, it isn't surprising that the shared universe would include Peter Parker as Venom has always been a major part of the Spider-Man comics. Personally, I think an even better option would be to create a Spider-Gwen universe to play in instead. Though we've seen the wallcrawler have multiple costumes in the comics, this is undoubtedly one of the suits that has stood out above the rest.
