@TheOneMCMK: Not sold per se. They made an agreement. Spider-man could be part of the MCU but Sony had to give up merch rights. After the flop of Amazing Spider-man 2, Sony was desperrate to get the movies back on track. Well...it worked. MCU spidey movies made a fortune.
So, I see Spider-man will be exclusive and free to sony consoles for the Avengers game. Not surprised honestly. They own the game and movie rights to the character . Sucks for users on the other platforms though.
The basic plot is, along with some of what happens to the family. The rest is added. But they do that with all H.P. adaptations and, all book adaptations really. I think it looks great, some of the other adaptations of this story have been trash.
Annihilation, so far, is the closest they've come to the book. Even though that was based on another book, the story is pretty much Color.
