I don’t know guys. I don’t think Spider-Man could work on his own. I mean, has that ever been done in film before?

So how should they handle the rewrites to excise all the stuff they can't use any more?

Also Sony is desperately trying to put all the blame on Disney.


No, this seems very much Disney's fault... at least as far as it's being reported. Dinsey want to cover some costs, which means they want to share the profits of what is Sony's cash cow. That's obviously untenable for Sony.

If that reporting is accurate then for Sony to be cast as the bad guys they'd need to have been refusing to let Disney use Spidey more outside solo films.

I'm personally blaming both, given that I understand Sony didn't make a counter-offer or anything (ie, negotiation/bargaining) and just refused.

On the other hand, maybe no more of the MCU's morally questionable shit?


It's not just Stark, it's...literally nothing from the previous 4 movies he's appeared in can be used.

So I expect Sony will shit the bed and give us a reboot, and we'll have to go through the origin story yet again.

Disney is being a diabolical corporation.

They didn't get what they wanted, so they made Sony look like the bad guy and sick their extreme fans on them. TBH, this is a shit show from both sides.

They did this with Netflix too, they pulled all their shit except for the MCU shows from there to make their own streaming service, Netflix retaliated by refusing to further support Disney's properties, and then hardcore Disney fans caught wind of this and made out Netflix to be the bad guys.

>Sony should just go all in on Miles Morales and have him star in live-action movies to distance themselves from the MCU.

...I'm OK with this. Both because I like Miles as a character and because it'll drive the chuds crazy.

Also it turns out that the deal Disney was pushing was for a 70-30 split in Sony's favour.

An important caveat is thar Marvel keeps the merchandising rights to sell things like toys and other products. When you account for the fact that Disney is also getting 100% of the indirect revenue from the films, it makes sense why Sony would be hesitant to give them any ground.

Disney already had the merchandising rights, though. It wouldn't have been a change. Sony didn't actually ask for anything, it just went "nah" and peaced out.

You know, the funny thing about all this is that Disney trailblazed modern copyright and trademark laws on fictional characters, and is largely responsible for extending the dates in the first place. They do a lot of lobbying whenever Mickey Mouse is close to becoming public domain.

Spider-Man would have been public domain by now if not for these many extensions.

So, yeah. Bit of irony there.

Yeah, but Disney asked for more then they were already getting, cutting into Sony's profits more than they were. That's just flexing corporate muscles, I wouldn't doubt if sicking the fans on Sony was part of the plan.

Of course, you're also right in that Sony was being a douche canoe by not even counteroffering. Both aren't exactly blameless here.

besides what good is Spiderman now to Sony they could go back to the Andrew Garfield Spiderman films and continue on that story line or make a forth Toby Maguire spider man film but with the way FFH set up further Spiderman/MCU stories Sony's trip ends with FFH.

Honestly I don´t really care who is to blame for this whole Spiderman mess. All I am is just a bit disappointed that we may not get to see more MCU Spiderman as Holland was my favorite live action spidey.
