unfortunately, spider-man has to pack up and find a new home

all hell broke out today on the internet involving spider-man.
even he couldn’t save it.
every scroll on my twitter timeline was the same tantrums.

Spider-man is leaving the Marvel universe

it’s a pretty sad day via “newsweek“…

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige will not produce any other “Spider-Man” movies after Disney and Sony hit an impasse in their discussions about co-financing future projects.

The partnership ends after Feige and Marvel Studios, a division of The Walt Disney Company, relaunched Spider-Man as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). There, he made five films, including Avengers: Endgame, the highest-grossing film of all-time, according to CNBC, and Spider-Man: Far From Home, Sony Pictures’ highest-grossing film of all-time.

Under the old agreement, Disney received a small percentage of the profits from standalone Spider-Man movies that Feige also produced so the company could use the character in other Marvel movies. But according to a Tuesday Deadline report, Disney wanted to change the agreement so as to split the profits evenly, while Sony wanted to keep the current arrangement.

Unable to come to an agreement, Sony apparently decided that the combined creative team of director Jon Watts—who helmed Spider-Man: Homecoming and the sequel, Far From Home—actor Tom Holland and producer Amy Pascal will be enough to keep the Spider-Man franchise relevant for future projects, even without Feige’s involvement.

um…

spidey sense is detecting a whole load of trash!!!
spider-man being in the marvel universe was epic.
i haven’t seen “spider-man: homecoming” yet…

…but did it end of a note of “we’re done here”?

thank God none of this went down during the avengers trilogy.
we’re gonna have to endure whatever studio that sony decides on.
nothing will top what life marvel breathed into spider-man.
all the ughs.

lowkey: does this rule out a spider-man/deadpool movie as well?

  1. Spiderman has had some good movies with Sony and the spiderverse was great and it was all Sony. I wonder if venom had anything to do with this fallout. I know marvel didn’t want venom anywhere near their MCU and Sony did. We shall see, but I think marvel has some struggle ahead of it as it’s infinity saga is all done and they start something new.

  2. And don’t forget Amy Pascal was exposed as straight up racist during the Sony hack a couple of years back. Making racist jokes about funding for Denzel and Kevin Hart movies comparing them to Madea movies and some such. She barely survived that scandal. Now this? This is gonna be Dark Phoenix all over again because the fans are gonna side with Disney and wait till that shit runs on TNT.

"off topic" and other nonsense gets sent to my spam folder. other than that, play nice and let's discuss!
