I think Sony’s artistic if they actually think they can keep Spiderman popular without Disney

Well at least I got to see Spidey on screen with his fellow MARVEL heroes. There were some opportunities and things I think should’ve been done differently, but all in all it was a solid cinematic mash-up/run

Damn. I never cared too much for him but that's actually sad. Lol. Holland stans are going to destroy twitter and it'll be even worse when they say he retired and moved somewhere with his cast and never hears of again due his identity reveal

This is quite disappointing. Sounds like they're pretty far off on a deal. Hopefully both sides can come back to the table and work something out down the line.

Apparently, Holland is still going to be in future movies. I guess it just means that they can't have any marvel cameos

This doesn’t seem to indicate that Spider-Man can’t appear in any Avengers movies though, so arguably he could still pop up in the grand scheme of the MCU.

Also Sony keeping Watts, Holland and confirming they’ll go off of the template set by Homecoming and Far From Home does seem to hint that they’ll still follow that continuity and tone.

Holland will still be Spiderman, and Jon Watts will still be the director since both were chosen by Sony anyway.

Yeah, Disney is gonna murder the next Sony Spider Man movie. Watch them open a massive movie same month as the next Spider Man movie.

We might get X Men and Fantastic Four earlier than we thought.

@rbt: Spiderman > X-Men and F4 in popularity, if anything that would be suicide for Disney.

Considering Disney stripped the character of nearly everything that makes him great, I say this is probably for the best.

https://deadline.com/2019/08/kevin-feige-spider-man-franchise-exit-disney-sony-dispute-avengers-endgame-captain-america-winter-soldier-tom-rothman-bob-iger-1202672545/#comments

EXCLUSIVE: Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige won’t produce any further Spider-Man films because of an inability by Disney and Sony Pictures to reach new terms that would have given the former a co-financing stake going forward. A dispute that has taken place over the past few months at the top of Disney and Sony has essentially nixed Feige, and the future involvement of Marvel from the Spider-Man universe, sources said.

There is a lot of webbing here, but it all comes down to money, and it’s easy to understand why both sides refused to give ground. Disney asked that future Spider-Man films be a 50/50 co-financing arrangement between the studios, and there were discussions that this might extend to other films in the Spider-Man universe. Sony turned that offer down flat, and I don’t believe they even came back to the table to figure out a compromise. Led by Tom Rothman and Tony Vinciquerra, Sony just simply didn’t want to share its biggest franchise. Sony proposed keeping the arrangement going under the current terms where Marvel receives in the range of 5% of first dollar gross, sources said. Disney refused.

So it seems like it was Disney who wanted more and ended the deal.

Disney has had it rough the past few weeks:

1. Opening of Star wars theme park falling flat.

2. Mulan film being openly boycotted due to Actress retweeting Chinese propaganda (may have been under duress).

3. SEC may be investigating claims of financial book cooking

4. This

Finished reading the article. So basically Disney wanted more money and Sony thought the increase from 5% first day to 50% total would have been excessive. Seems reasonable.

I expect one Spiderman movie from Sony before the two companies renegotiate.

So it sounds like Sony feels like Disney was able to resuscitate the Spider man franchise and is now taking it back 100% without any involvement from and sharing of profits with Disney. Dont know if I have faith that they can keep up what Disney essentially built for them. But on the bright side, they can bring Venom into the fold now.

Guys there's still another 2 movies with Holland and Watts but Feige won't be involved anymore, neither will the rest of the MCU be.

hahaahaha. Moral of the story. Don't be greedy.

Does this mean that Spiderman won't appear in the MCU?

How can Holland be in the MCU if there is no deal with Sony? Holland's version of the character is tied to the MCU. I can't see how any sequels work without it

At least this guarantees Holland Spiderman will have nothing to do with Tony Stark anymore

@gxrevs06: Any planned flashbacks with Tony will be replaced with some dude named Ben ?

That's unfortunate. The MCU Spider-Man films where very good IMO. Seems like a horrible time for him to be removed.

While I enjoyed Homecoming and thought FFH was serviceable, Marvel's treatment of the character that is, by far, their greatest hero was unfortunate at best and deplorable at worst.

However, I have no confidence Sony will do any better.

Is x-men/F4 worth more to Disney than Spidey?

Maybe we'll get Spidey's supporting characters back now and stop making it Avengers and friends.
