57450 Sony Breaks Silence On Spider-Man Split With Marvel

Sony Breaks Silence On Spider-Man Split With Marvel





Shots have been fired… or maybe, webs have been slung?

Marvel fans had their worst fears realized on August 20th, when it came to light that Disney and Sony couldn’t come to an agreement to keep Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in upcoming releases. After Sony-produced films like 2007’s Spider-Man 3 and 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 failed to truly capture the essence of the web-slinger, and in light of just how popular and successful Spider-Man has been in the MCU, fans have been quick to denounce the decision. Once the story went public, Sony wasted little time in issuing its response and – surprise, surprise – they are placing the blame on Disney.

The spokesperson stated:

“We are disappointed, but respect Disney’s decision not to have him continue as a lead producer of our next live-action Spider-Man film. We hope this might change in the future, but understand that the many new responsibilities that Disney has given him – including all their newly added Marvel properties – do not allow time for him to work on IP they do not own.”

Apparently, the fallout between the two companies came after Disney suggested it deserved more of the profit from future Spider-Man movies, requesting the standing five percent day-one box office cut to be increased to a 50 percent co-financing stake in the franchise. Obviously, Sony turned that down, wanting the current deal – in which Disney also receives all merchandising revenue – to continue instead.

To be fair to Sony, Feige does seem to have more on his plate than ever before. With the Mouse House launching its streaming platform Disney+ at the end of the year, the head of Marvel Studios is hard at work making sure the numerous superhero offerings that are coming to the platform are up to snuff – not to mention ensuring the success of the various Phase 4 films that are in the works as well.

And with the surprisingly massive box office of Venom and the critical and commercial success of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Sony is in a much stronger place with its comic book franchise than it was back when the original deal was struck with Disney in 2015. Sony has had the film rights to Spider-Man since 1999, back when Marvel Comics was doing its best to recover from bankruptcy and resorted to licensing many of its most popular characters to film studios just to stay afloat. Times have changed for both companies, and Sony is evidently standing its ground in a major way.

For his part, Tom Holland – who has played Marvel’s wall-crawler in five films since first appearing in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War – is contracted to appear as Spider-Man in two more standalone movies for Sony. Of course, Spider-Man solo pictures are not the only thing Sony Pictures has going on right now, as the studio is looking to create its own successful franchise of Marvel-based films after Venom did gangbusters at the box office. Previously announced films that are in pre-production at the studio include an Andy Serkis-directed Venom sequel and a pic starring Jared Leto as classic Marvel antihero Morbius the Living Vampire.

The studio also hasn’t been shy about other possible projects to expand its Spider-Man universe. In an interview with Vanity Fair in late 2018, then-series producer Amy Pascal mentioned that Sony was interested in reviving the previously shelved Sinister Six film based on the iconic group of Spider-Man villains.

In light of all this news, many questions remain. Can Holland’s Peter Parker leave one cinematic universe merely to join another? Are fans of the MCU ready and willing to support Spider-Man outside of Feige’s steady and knowledgeable hands? The last truly successful non-animated Spider-Man film Sony produced came over 15 years ago with Sam Raimi’s iconic 2004 picture Spider-Man 2.

That’s an eternity in Hollywood time, but it’s possible that time has given Sony perspective and that the studio could put together a team that creates a remarkable piece of filmmaking that blows the box office apart. One thing’s for sure: given that superhero films are largely a surefire box office draw in Tinseltown, Spider-Man leaving the MCU is a major shift with billion-dollar implications.

It doesn’t look like either studio is going to budge on this decision, unfortunately, so fans are going to have to get used to a reality where Peter Parker isn’t carrying on the legacy of Tony Stark after all.

  12. Malcolm Bunyoli

    I get it both studios are being greety but I’m sorry I think Sony needs to stop being dumb and trying to ruin everything on the high note like for a different matter Sony wouldn’t let ps4 crossplay for the longest time with Xbox not even in Minecraft even though Microsoft owned Minecraft I’m on Disney side because Sony always try’s to force things down my throat because of money cough amazing Spider-Man 2 and spider man 3 cough just my opinion also the new realest said it wasn’t 50/50 it was 70/30 marvel offered

  13. Malcolm Bunyoli

  17. KK Lao

    Sooo can we get a Spiderman Venom now? 😍😍

  18. chris m

    People fighting over disney being at fault and sony being at fault. I like the mcu but then I think about sony who actually owns spider man.
    Spider man vs venom
    Spider man vs green goblin
    Spider man vs carnage
    Relationships
    Gwen Stacy
    Mary Jane
    Felicia hardy
    Other characters
    Mile Morales
    Spider gwen
    Venom
    Sony could do more with spider man then disney ever could.

  19. Trayton Paicu

    All right, people, let’s do this one last time…

  20. ColdaTundra 28

    hopefully both sony and disney get their fingers out of their asses and actually start negotiating for the first time

  21. Master.

    Spiderman, spiderman
    Does whatever a spider can
    Spins a web, any size,
    Catches thieves just like flies

  22. anthony damico

    For me The MCU. Died with avengers endgame.

  23. Cate Rush

    apparently Sony and Disney dont care about what the fans want

  24. Sergeant Arch Dornan

    Sony is just angry that mcu Spider-Man never said pizza time

  25. TRENDING

    Sony is greedy asf

  26. Need For Speed Fan Channel

    Solo Spider-Man is the best Spider-Man!

  27. HZRD SpideysHyperr

    So now tony died for NO FUCKING REASON cause like that was the motivation for tony in endgame it was peter so if marvel doesn’t get him back this is what’s probably gonna what I’m gonna see on the news: suicide increases because of Spider-Man leaving the mcu

  28. Keenan Jones

    50/50 is fair. Marvel is the one writing the scripts and filming everything. The only thing Sony does is own the rights to Spider-Man, and we all know how making Spider-Man movies isn't Sony's strong suit. Now Disney will just have to buy them out ¯_(ツ)_/¯

  29. bob

    Tom holland was on top of the world by playing spiderman and meeting all the marvel stars but then in one day all hell broke loose

  30. Mr. OldGod

    Hot News! Spider Man is back in MCU and Venom is now a part of it too .

  31. Purple Dog

    GOOD NEWS MARVEL AND SONY MADE AN AGREEMENT
    AND NOW SPIDERMAN IS BACK IN THE MCU!!!!

  32. Unknown Z

    I hope he come back to marvel

  33. Armando Uribe

    none of this matters, deals where remade….. EVEERYONE BACK TO WORK !

  34. Where’s the milk?

    As smart as Sony is being. They’re being greedy as well as Disney, if any of the companies cared about our feelings for Spider-Man. They’d try to push back the negotiations until the next 2 movies Tom Holland had we’re here. Smh, I blame both tbh. Disney the most.

  35. Sentient Potato

    Doesn't Disney make enough money?

  36. Mc Knight

    Nothing but a bunch of shills, these people on youtube blaming disney and not looking at the big picture bullying sony for more money, 50% is HUGE especially when the property is NOT own by them your not suppose to be demanding. Thank you someone who knows what the fuck they're talking about rather then some idiot fanboy who can't think about the business side of things, how about i cut 50% of you paycheck. The mouse wants cheddar.

  37. Teddy Kurniawan

    Disneyland: happiest place on earth.
    Disney Studios: destroyer of childhood.

  38. James Chung

    Boycott Sony!

  39. Corey Robinson

    Boycott Sony.. I loved MCU Spider-Man that’s BS.

  40. Mattybdbz

    I think this bad deal might be the beginning of the end of the superhero movie Trend.

  41. Richard Pisano

    I mean didn't it end like SPIDER-MANs future is in jeapordy? I'm talking about in the movie, right….

  42. Richard Pisano

    The Amazing thing folks don't seem to realise that movie into the Spiderverse/Venom/Morbius the living vampire…it is a multiverse after all but I'm excited see as a fan Im not worried at all the movies coming sound great!!Not a popular view right now but sorry ….

  43. Luís
