If you didn’t know what’s going on, Sony Pictures and Disney are splitting up due to a disagreement with the finances of using Spider-Man in the Disney movies. According to Variety, it is believed that Sony was to give 5% of the earnings to Marvel and Disney when using the character Spider-Man. With this deal, Sony would let Disney use Spider-Man for merchandising and movie projects such as Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. But now, the reason why there’s a dispute with Sony and Disney is because after the success of Spider-Man: Far From Home in July in which they earned a grossing of approximately $1 billion dollars, Disney demanded that they should get 50/50 of the money. In results, since Sony doesn’t like this new deal, they either want to stick with the old deal or leave Disney in which they will do the Spider-Man movies without any Disney involved. If that is the case, Tom Holland is planned to be in two more Spider-Man titles, unfortunately, they will not have Disney involved such as moments from past movies like Infinity War and Iron Man.

Today I found a response from Sony Pictures in regards to this split. I will share this from this Twitter and I will copy and paste. I don’t know what’s your opinion on this but based on what I been hearing from people I follow, I think Sony made the right choice to leave Disney. As much as I really love how Sony was willing to let Spider-Man team up with the Avengers, I am afraid that Disney would take advantage of Spider-Man for their greedy purposes. Disney already owns Marvel characters and Star Wars and they want Fox Marvel characters. Unless something gets resolved, I don’t want Spider-Man be treated as a marketing scheme for Disney.

Much of today’s news about Spider-Man has mischaracterized recent discussions about Kevin Feige’s involvement in the franchise. We are disappointed, but respect Disney’s decision not to have him continue as a lead producer of our next live action Spider-Man film.

We hope this might change in the future, but understand that the many new responsibilities that Disney has given him – including all their newly added Marvel properties – do not allow time for him to work on IP they do not own.

Kevin is terrific and we are grateful for his help and guidance and appreciate the path he has helped put us on, which we will continue.

  1. Disney is really ruining a lot of great franchises. It’s really become an incredible money making machine, and is not really concerned anymore with what the public wants but only much money they can make of something. Real shame if you ask me 😔

    • Yeah it’s pretty sad to see. To think that this company tried its best to make us happy but in the process of hurting something else. I really hope Disney doesn’t let greed be the one to destroy itself. 😦
