I don't deny that Marvel obviously have their own plans for the solo Spidey flick and how he'll operate in the NYC of the MCU. I'm just saying I don't think that they simply already have plans for how that movie will affect the movies after it that it had to be in that slot. I feel it's more like Sony agreed that they'd reboot and they wanted it to be pretty soon. Feige simply played nice and gave them one of their slots.
I feel a Spidey flick could do fine whenever. It's Spider-Man. I don't believe the solo flick is suddenly time sensitive and had to take that slot or nothing else. Spidey will be more of a blockbuster than ever now that it's in the MCU. Release the movie on xmas and watch it gross the highest.
Might have started as Her Majesty's Secret Service. Could still be. They just have spies in America and probably everywhere else in the world
Millar pretty much always has his American take on things with stuff like this.
