exactly what I feared.
But Marvel was going bankrupt or declared bankruptcy, so they had to sell those properties.
X-Men being stand alone is fine. Other than a select few of X-Men members (Wolverine, Beast) there isn't really a lot of interaction with those groups.
Why would it? I'm sure Marvel already has BP as a key role in Civil War. As it has been said many times, Spider-Man doesn't necessarily have to have a big role in Civil War in order for the story to work.
Marvel will find a way to creative way to tie him into the universe.
Also, who is this Jack O'Connell actor?
