Children everywhere might love Marvel and all its superheroes, but the movie franchise is hardly aimed at a younger audience. This is where 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' comes in; bringing back Peter Parker may just be the most teen-friendly thing Marvel have done for a while.

What The Marvel-Sony Spider-Man Deal Means


Spider Man Sony Andrew Garfield

The implications of Sony and Marvel’s Spider-Man deal, which was announced on Monday, are now becoming clearer.

Spider-Man will be included in an upcoming Marvel title for the first time in nearly two decades, and that film is reported to be next year’s Captain America: Civil War.

Variety reported that, in essence, the deal will work out cheaply for both parties. Effectively, neither studio will receive a cut from the proceeds of the other studio’s useage of the Spiderman character in future movies. Without the deal, Disney (which owns Marvel) would have to part with millions in order to use him.

Spider-Man Is Jewish. Because Andrew Garfield Says So.


Andrew Garfield Spider Man Stan Lee Emma Stone

He's The Amazing Spider-Man, and he's very much Jewish - this according to the man that plays the superhero in the latest franchise, Andrew Garfield. The British-American actor, who was brought up Jewish, suggests that Spidey's neuroses are a sure-fire sign that the character is culturally Jewish.

"Spider-man is neurotic. Peter Parker is not a simple dude. He can't just switch off," Garfield told Time Out. "He never feels like he's doing enough. And Peter suffers from self-doubt. He ums and ahs about his future because he's neurotic. He's Jewish. It's a defining feature." Whether or not Spider-Man is of Jewish religion has been the subject of feverish internet speculation for years, but it seems Garfield, 30,has already made up his mind.
