Have Sony And Disney Come To An Agreement

According to the agreements they made, Marvel CEO Kevin Feige will continue to give his production skills to this future Spider-Man movie and Disney will retain the merchandising rights to the character (obviously without video game rights that proved very profitable for Sony Interactive with the launch of a very popular Playstation 4 game). When initial reports broke that Sony did not renew the contract with Disney, allowing Marvel Studios to show Spider-Man in its films, and allowed Sony`s cash gain, while the mouse house got merchandising, fans were apoplecttic. Petitions were soon signed, tears flowed, and Sony was decried by the news media, which I found a little unfair, given that the discussions failed because Disney, one of the richest companies in the world with a growing monopoly on the entertainment industry, asked for more money. However, Rothman and De Horn`s statements suggest theories that news of the stagnant conversations was leaked to the media as part of a Disney negotiating tactic. While the two leaders are now speaking in a very diplomatic way, it is possible that they have made the same decision, that the outcry from Disney fans will serve as leverage. There is a decisive difference between this latest Spider-Man agreement and the one reached in 2015. This initial deal promised a whole series of Spider-Man blockbusters, while this one covers only two films. It is not clear what Marvel and Sony intend to do once these two films have been made; Will the studios return to the negotiating table or will they find a way to complete this partnership? The most important point of friction between the two studios seems to have been related to Spider-Man`s ability to appear in several franchises. With the now ironed, fans should expect to see a lot more of it.

However, it is not known in which other films it will appear. Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures have finally reached a new deal to keep Spider-Man in the MCU, and this is very different from their latest one. The past few weeks have been a difficult time for Spider-Man fans, with the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home, overshadowed by the apparent end of the Marvel/Sony deal. For a short time, it seemed that the wall-crawler would completely leave marvel`s cinematic universe. Fortunately and against all adversity, Marvel and Sony have reached a new agreement that keeps Tom Holland`s Spider-Man in the MCU. But there is a decisive difference between how Marvel and Sony handled this new deal toward their initial deal. The first agreement, signed in 2015, was concluded quite far in the open air. The official statements detailed the impact.

The initial agreement included five films. Tom Holland`s Spider-Man was featured in Captain America: Civil War and then swung through a series of popular and well-received superhero blockbusters: Spider-Man: HomeComing, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home. Unfortunately, while Holland was personally registered for two other films, this seems to have been the end of the old agreement between Marvel and Sony. A new deal had to be made to keep Spider-Man in the MCU – and for a while at least, it seemed like a distant prospect. However, fans may have convinced both studios to come together to rectify the situation. Sony and Disney were alerted to fan discontent via social media and at the D23 conference.
