Marvel’s cinematic universe has made significant progress. The entertainment company produced a line of super heroes successfully connecting their storylines in the Avengers. However the main problem for the company is that Disney’s Marvel doesn’t specifically own the rights to all its characters.
The Marvel comic universe as we all know is a vast universe. The Fantastic Four, Avengers and X-Men all are in one colossal interconnected universe.

Spiderman: Homecoming was dated in 2020 which comes as quite a surprise to the audience. Captain America: Civil War which was supposed to happen after Spiderman was set up in 2017 or 2018.
