Why Spider-Man Should Get His Own Netflix Show Before Joining The MCU


The Internet lost its collective mind earlier this year when Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures announced a new alliance, finally bringing your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man into the larger MCU family. This is fairly exciting news.

Not sure what the point of this article even is. He's joining next May. No way they're cranking out a whole series before then.

He really should, but he won't.

He won't because he shouldn't. The money is in the theaters for such a big character like him, not on Netflix. He's top 3 heroes of all time. It only makes sense to put him on film.

I think they need to straighten out the whole film franchise before anything on TV.

I would only agree if it meant we can skip the damn origin story. As a Spider-Man fan I'm sick of hearing about it. We get it, we get how he becomes Spider-Man, MOVE ON.

That being said I'd think other characters in the universe would be good for a TV show that intertwines with the main movies. Agent Venom, Spider-Woman, Spider-Girl, Gwen, MJ, Black Cat.... there are all kinds of characters in the Spider-Man world that can carry themselves. It's a shame Sony is so stuck on the origin story that we don't even get hints of them.
