Looks like the Venom / Spidey team-up is v likely
why be sad about mcu when you can remember the spider-verse exists and rules and we still get that
mostly because I know what Sony has historically done with the franchise when left to their own devices (Spider-Verse being the exception) and I am nervous because I love Holland's version of the character so much
Yeah more so I don’t expect Sony to not fuck up the movie in their own.
oh yeah I’m the same. Holland is my favorite Spider-Man love action so I’m scared for how they’ll handle him.
Do we even know for sure that Tom will stay in it though? Isn’t his contract up? If I’m him I’m playing hardball with Sony cus I want to stay in the MCU. Though I suppose playing Spiderman on your own is better than not playing him at all.
I just hope they don’t do anything to like directly conflict with the MCU. I’m fine with Spidey doing his own thing as long as I can believe he still exists in the same universe. If that makes sense
The IGN article I read indicated he was still on board along with the Far From Home director but I haven't cross checked that source
They’ve put themselves in the unenviable position of making a movie as (meh) or good as the last two and it facing the “welp it sucks now” chants from minds already pre-made up.
Good luck with that.
Feel like Disney is being dumb here? Maybe I’m wrong or misunderstanding.
The best Spider-Man stories really don't have much of anything to do with the larger Marvel universe. In fact, arguably his worst story is a direct result of being involved with other heroes (One More Day). As long as the same love and care that was given to Spider-Verse is given to whatever Sony does with the character going forward, they can do whatever they want as far as I'm concerned.
Honestly though f Disney on this you’re raking in literally billions upon billions of dollars from the MCU, can you not just like let this one slide for the fans’ sake? How much more do you really need.
Asking for 50:50 was always gonna get turned down.
It sounds like they're drunk with power and just want another billion-dollar revenue stream. You can make the argument that Feige gave them the most profitable two "Spider-Man" movies and maybe that's the reason. But "Venom" making a ton of money probably gave Sony the confidence to tell Disney to go away and they'll do fine on their own.
(Also Disney's fault.)
If the news about them melting down 20th Century Fox for reboots and remakes is to be believed, they'll never have enough money and everything is expendable if it doesn't maximize profits.
Disney is going to make the money where it matters. Licensing and toys are going to net them the real profit.
Just make the spider-verse sequel. Thats all we want.
So Sony wanted to continue the deal as it was but Disney asked for a huge cut? Yeah, Sony isn't the bad guy here
I don't care who the bad guy is here, I just want the next movie to be as good as the last two have been
(and for the spider-verse sequel)
Disney had to ask for 50/50 - they are hurting financially since Dumbo under-performed and are at risk of going under.
I think this has a bigger impact on both sides than people here are saying.
That being said I would be shocked if they don’t come to an agreement in the near future.
I agree that I think this is a bigger impact for both sides than people seem to be saying.
Thus... my fear. I love this iteration of Spidey so much.
In my work as a publicist, I've often had clients who I got so much coverage for that they fired me, having convinced themselves the coverage was a result of their inherent awesomeness, instead of my hard work. (Oddly enough, this never proved to be true.)
While a heavily flawed metaphor, my concern is that this might be one of those scenarios based on nothing but years of having watched Sony's Spidey films.
And it's obv a huge blow for Marvel, since they were framing Peter as Stark 2.0. Dunno what their crossover plan was going to be, but it's clear there was going to eventually be one.
It'll be interesting to see what happens.
there goes me caring about any remaining MCU characters
i guess t'challa is it
