    Sony now has a chance to put Spiderman and Venom into one movie now. I could care less about homecoming or far from home. All I wanna see is interactions between Spiderman and Venom.

    Sony could set it in another dimension that is one of the many earths and having him wear a classic costume with villains like the green goblin venom and other villains we haven’t seen on the big screen yet.

    It serves Disney right for what they did to poor Netflix, plus now every Marvel movie doesn’t have to be owned by Disney which leads to more diversity.

    You think this is bad; do a little research on The Six Million Dollar Man....and THAT was a complete trashy mess of throwing away money like drunken sailors. A Theatrical movie, made well of The Bionic Man, would have spurred a giant, money-grabbing franchise....but no. I don't like you.

    • Joe Vazquez

      Sam Raimi's first two Spider-Man installments are the best. Period. And that was before Marvel Studios existed. I agree that Tom Holland is the best portrayer of Spider-Man, but Raimi's movies were better and gave Spidey the limelight he deserves. Marvel's movies were great movies, but they weren't entirely true to the character.

      I do agree that the best course of action for both companies is to share the character, but Disney is greedy as shit. They have all merchandising rights to Spider-Man, so they're going to make bank off of the Sonyverse movies regardless. They should have taken Sony up on their 10% offer, but it's obvious Disney doesn't care about the fans, and Sony isn't going to lose money because muh MCU.

      Even Venom, which is widely regarded as "meh" made over $800 billion. Why would you sacrifice $500 million to make a decent MCU film when at worst you could make more money with a "meh" film like Venom?

      And remember: Sony was sold the movie rights by Marvel 20 years ago.

    I think that maybe Warner's & universal need to merge,start buying up the intellectual propertys of other great series of stories,fantasy novels,comic books,and other things and build a powerhouse that REALLY competes with those assholes at Disney. Warner's should be ashamed that they so horribly screwed up the DC comics movies with the exception of the Batman movies. I mean they just seemed to not care.

      Sony isn’t that small of a company, they also have more than entertainment unlike Disney. Since they make cameras, some phones, the play stations, and even make Apple’s iPhone cameras, plus movies obviously too.

    As a long time Spidey fan, I was thrilled to see him with the other marvel characters. Sony has every right to want to hold onto their best characters, but I think both companies loose if they don't come to a deal. Spider man is finally a big success, in no small part because of Marvel. Sony, Marvel, you girls are both pretty, now lets get along eh?

      @TOTALLY RAD!! with josie! No that's the whole opposite...The movie starts like that, but finishes with Peter realizing he is still a friendly neighborhood spider man. And him revealing his identity to super heroes he is fighting with shouldn't be a huge deal. He just got revived and teleported to a battle zone against Thanos and his army. He's not gonna be thinking about hiding his identity. He just got pulled into this mess. His first thought isn't to put on his mask so he can hide his identity.

    Just clarification, Marvel asked to include Spider-Man and agreed to some pretty steep cuts to help propel their own films; which it did (and Sony benefits from a revitalization). In turn, Sony funded and co-produced the stand-alone films with access to creative head Kevin Feige and the greater Marvel roster. Sony would pay them a cut for it's use, but keep majority profits. After the stand-alone Spider-Man films destroyed at the box office, Disney played hardball for a larger cut and producer credit. Sony called their bluff, which was a smarter movie tbh
    With the name brand of Spider-Man and the success of onto the verse. Sony's confident they don't need Disney; which I agree

    • jtreynol
      jtreynol 5 months ago +1

      Sony definitely made the right call for their business...just sucks for the fans. Not sure why Disney is all of a sudden playing hardball.

  • Mr Ahnaf

    For those who are foolish enough to blame Sony entirely for Spidey's fate.
    Sony-Disney initial deal was Sony (as Spidey's owner) will finance, distribute and co-produced with Kevin Feige's Marvel Studios for Spidey's MCU solo movies.
    Sony will get 95% box office profit, while Disney (under Marvel's banner) will get 5% profit + merchandise right + theme parks right + rights to make their own Spidey's cartoon at Disney XD w/o Sony taking even 1 cent for the rights Disney get regarding Spider-Man.
    The problem right now? Disney want to co-finance Spidey's upcoming MCU solo movies (50/50 with Sony) and taking 50% *gross income* of the movies, not net income. That means Sony will also 100% responsible for the other expenses, while Disney just only incur cost for production, while maintaining special privileges given by Sony to Disney.
    To MCU's fandom, from here, you know who are too stupid for failing MCU's Spider-Man. Sony may known for making bad Spider-Man movies (yes, those with Garfield and Stone), but that doesn't you can't take advantage on people's difficulties.
    Disney should be grateful for *bought and owned* Marvel as a whole, where Marvel plays part for Disney's big profit in recent years (that's not even including Lucasfilm movies, Pixar movies and upcoming Fox franchises). They do really have too much money and customers' power, so they don't have to worry about not owning Spider-Man, unlike Sony
    As long as Sony do well in box-office and Oscars with Spider-Man while they remain faithful with its comics, Disney should just be happy with their deal with Sony. At least they able to use Spidey through the earlier deal. In fact, Sony is the one who offers the initial deal to Disney !

    All that's left to do is throw Spiderman in the trash and dust off hands and walk away.

    You really believe they'll let Spiderman go away for no reason?
    1.1 billion profit sounds like some pretty good incentive, they aren't done milking that franchise for all it's worth, I'm not worried.
    He'll be back.
