One of the biggest entertainment stories of the month took place earlier this month when it was reported that discussions between Marvel and Sony about the future of Spider-Man movies have collapsed. Years ago, Sony – which owns the rights to the movie on Spider-Man – and Disney / Marvel signed a contract that allowed Spider-Man to appear in MCU films, starting with Captain America: Civil War 2016. It was reported last week that Disney and Sony were talking about new terms, but the two sides reportedly could not agree. Now Marvel boss Kevin Feige has talked more about the matter and said he never expected the deal to run forever, and strongly suggests that Spider-Man has officially disappeared from the MCU.
"I feel grateful for Spider-Man and Joy," Feige told Entertainment Weekly. "We have to make five films with Spider-Man inside the MCU: two separate films and three with the Avengers, it was a dream I never thought would happen.
" It should never take forever. We knew we could only do this in a limited amount of time, and we told the story we wanted to tell, and I'm always grateful for that.
Under the long list of unanswered questions The battle between Marvel and Sony comes when Spider-Man: Homecoming and Far From Home director Jon Watts returns for the third new Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland Films, of which the latter earned $ 1
According to Deadline, "it is not certain" that Watts will return for the third film, Watts for One engage in new film that is unlikely to have anything to do with Spider-Man.
Holland was at the Keystone Comic-Con in Philadelphia this weekend, confirming that he will return as Spider-Man back to Spider-Man 3, the he described as a movie "I'm just so thankful that Marvel changed my life and made my dreams come true, and Sony allowed me to continue living my dream," he said, as reported by GameSpot sister site C "It's a crazy week and it has never been done before, so we'll see how it works and it will be so amazing and so entertaining."
In a separate statement, Sony said the news about the dispute between her and Disney were "mis-characterized." Part of the drama involved Feige's involvement as the lead producer of Sony's Spider-Man films, which reportedly will not continue for the next film.
"We are disappointed, but respecting Disney's decision not to continue as the main producer of our next live-action Spider-Man movie," said Sony. "We hope this will change in the future, but understand that the many new responsibilities that Disney has assigned to him – including all the newly added Marvel features – will not give him time to work on IP, which she does not Kevin is great and we are grateful for his help and guidance and appreciate the way he has enabled us and we will continue to do so. "
Marvel Series Producer Jon Favreau said he hopes Sony and Marvel will arrange but that could not happen. Deadline sources said, "It's been so bad that some are wondering if it's even possible to think about Spider-Man and come to an agreement."
Although Disney and Sony can not agree on a new deal The House of the Mouse will continue to benefit from Spider-Man, as it currently receives 100% of Spider-Man's merchandise.
Regardless of whether or not Spider-Man stays on the MCU, Marvel is planning a larger number of superhero films. At D23 last weekend, the company announced even more shows for Disney, including Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk and Moon Knight.
