Looks like Spidey won’t be leaving us anytime soon. This spider is here to stay! It’s been announced today that Sony and Disney has settled a deal on Thursday night that Spider-Man will remain in the MCu world with the Avengers. Sony Pictures chief Tom Rothman, Feige and Walt Disney Studios co-chairs Alan Horn and Alan Bergman both discussed about the future movies of Spider-Man and finding his place in the Marvel world and they both settled for an agreement. In the summer, Disney-Marvel wanted a 50/50 on the money earned from Sony instead of the proposed 5%. Now, Disney-Marvel agreed to 25% in which they will earn and they hold the merchandising rights. In addition to the deal, it’s been confirmed that they will be doing a third Spider-Man taking place after the events of Far From Home. This new Spider-Man movie will be in theaters July 16, 2021. Kevin Feige even hinted about Spider-Man appearing in Sony’s own Marvel universe such as Venom.

“I am thrilled that Spidey’s journey in the MCU will continue, and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited that we get to keep working on it. “Spider-Man is a powerful icon and hero whose story crosses all ages and audiences around the globe. He also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes, so as Sony continues to develop their own Spidey-verse you never know what surprises the future might hold.”

Sony news update: Spider-Man deal is still split, Sony plans to add Spidey into Sony films!

Related image

Well, this is either good news or bad news. It depends on which side you agree.

According to the Chief of Sony Pictures, it looks like Spider-Man will most likely stay in Sony.

“For the moment the door is closed, Sony Pictures chairman” and CEO Tony Vinciquerra. It looks like the chances of Spider-Man appearing in the MCU world, for now, will be little to none. Spider-Man will be having his adventures on his own without being associated with the Avengers. However, Vinciquerra hinted that Spider-Man could appear back into the MCU in the far future. Here is what Vinciquerra said about Marvel Kevin Feige

“We had a great run with (Feige) on Spider-Man movies,” the Sony chief said. “We tried to see if there’s a way to work it out….the Marvel people are terrific people, we have great respect for them, but on the other hand we have some pretty terrific people of our own. Kevin didn’t do all the work.”

With this bravado, Sony believes Spider-Man will be “just fine” without Disney’s involvement. Sony mentioned it already has plans for “5 to 6″ TV series based on the world of Spider-Man, a Morbius movie and a second Venom movie.

“Spider-Man was fine before the event movies, did better with the event movies, and now that we have our own universe, he will play off the other characters as well. I think we’re pretty capable of doing what we have to do here,” said Tony Vinciquerra.

For now, it looks like Sony has plans for Spider-Man in their own universe. It’s been mentioned that if Spider-Man does stay in his own world, this could lead crossover movies involving Venom and Morbius. Tom Holland will be in movies with Tom Hardy as Venom and Jared Leto as Morbius if this happens.

Funimation exposed: Chuck Huber’s affidavit reveals dark secrets about Funimation Staff

Image result for android 17 win

Affidavit: a written statement confirmed by oath or affirmation, for use as evidence in court.

An affidavit is basically a written proof that that is used for evidence in court and it is sword by oath. These evidences are not tampered and it must be true.

It’s been crazy with Funimation. Besides the recent links of the voice actors recording inappropriate jokes with the characters, let’s not forget the whole Vic Migogna situation with Voice actor Vic and Funimation. If you don’t know, this drama occurred in the last week of January after the blockbuster success of Dragon Ball Super Broly movie. Accusations started to pop up stating that Broly voice actor Vic Migogna has sexually assaulted his coworkers and fans. Some people stated that he harassed them by kissing, hugging and aggressively pulling hair. As far I been hearing and reading, I haven’t seen actual pictures of him doing this to anyone. All these accusations have claimed tha the did this for about 10 years and no one bothered to report him. Regardless, Funimation and Rooster Teeth fired Vic and replaced his voice of his characters. Recently, Vic is suing Funimation and his coworkers for spreading lies and defamation on him and ruining his career.

Today, I found some interesting news that someone from their perspective has seen the shady stuff with Chris Sabat, Sean Schemmel, Monica Rial and Jamie Marchi. Supporting and standing up with Vic is voice actor Chuck Huber. Chuck Huber is a Funimation voice actor who recently voiced characters like Android 17 from Dragon Ball and Hiei from Yu Yu Hakusho. Chuck Huber testified and gave an affidavit regarding to Funimation and how they treated him. I will leave a video of affidavit from Hero Hiei in which he covers all the information down below.

Here are some quick synopsis points he stated:

12. Chris Sabat disparage Vic’s Christian faith and even called him gay for the clothes he wore.

17. Chris Sabat, Jamie Marchi and Monica Rial expressed negative opinions towards Vic Migogna’s success.

22. Sean Schemmel tried to persuade Chuck to participate in a derogatory video in which they make fun of VIc Migogna by calling him a pedophile. Chuck refused because he’s best friends with Vic.

39. When Sony partnered with Funimation, they stated a “no hug” policy, but regardless, everyone ignored it.

41. It’s only a rumor, but during the casting of Dragon Ball Z Kai, some of the voice actress got recasted because they didn’t want any sexual advances with the Funimation employees.

65. Jamie Marchi. Chris Sabat and Monica Rial and even himself has hugged and kissed so many fans of all ages.

75. Chuck and his wife are concerned that by siding with Vic means they would be targeted as well. Chris Sabat would target them

Here is a tweet showing the affidavit:

Confirmation news: Spider-Man leaves MCU. Tom Holland voices his opinion.

Image result for spider man disappear

Like everyone said, it’s been a rough couple of days for Marvel and Disney fans. Just in case are barely reading this, it was announced by Disney and Sony that Sony was planning to remove Spider-Man from the MCU films because of a disagreement of a financial deal. The deal was to let Sony Spider-Man be part of the Disney movies involving characters such as Iron Man and the other Avengers. The money Sony made would also give a percentage to Disney and give them permission for merchandising. However, after the success of Spider-Man: Far From Home, Disney later on wants to change this deal where they get 50/50 of money from Sony. This led to dispute where have been caught in the middle. To picture this situation, Sony and Disney are filing a divorce and Sony is going to take Spider-Man back.

Now, we are getting confirmation from Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and even actor Tom Holland that Spider-Man is leaving Disney.

In a interview with with EW, Spider-Man actor Tom Holland finally talks about his feelings about this news and the future:

“Basically, we’ve made five great movies. It’s been five amazing years. I’ve had the time of my life. Who knows what the future holds? But all I know is that I’m going to continue playing Spider-Man and having the time of my life. It’s going to be so fun, however we choose to do it. The future for Spider-Man will be different, but it will be equally as awesome and amazing, and we’ll find new ways to make it even cooler.”

Kevin Feige also got something to say about this as well:

“We got to make five films within the MCU with Spider-Man: two standalone films and three with the Avengers. It was a dream that I never thought would happen. It was never meant to last forever. We knew there was a finite amount of time that we’d be able to do this, and we told the story we wanted to tell, and I’ll always be thankful for that.”

Here is some Spider-Man facts:

  • Spider-Man jumped into the MCU world starting in 2016’s Captain America’s Civil War movie.
  • In 2017, Spider-Man got his solo movie in Spider-Man: Homecoming. It had Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man/Tony Stark, Happy as John Favreau and it had Michael Keaton as Vulture.
  • Spider-Man appeared again in the biggest crossover movie Avengers: Infinity War where he teamed up with Iron Man along with members of the Guardians of the Galaxy and Dr. Strange.
  • In 2019, he was back in action in Avengers: Endgame.
  • Same year, he got a sequel to his solo movie called Spider-Man: Far From Home. It featured Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and it introduced the character Mysterio who is played by Jake Gyllenhaal.

Friday Funny 227: Spider-Man, Go Home

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome everyone in this funny day in this blazing week! I hope everyone has been keeping cool under the sun. Summer has been hitting us this week, but the sun won’t stop me from sharing these memes on Friday Funny. Before we begin, please be sure to visit my Ko-fi page to help my wbesite to grow and I can write more your entertainment!

Let me share some recap news just in case you been slacking off on reading the news. Gamescon 2019 has been going on this week and this means we are getting tons of video game news. Final Fantasy VIII Remastered is planning to hit the digital stores on Sept 3rd for all platforms. Mortal Kombat 11 has just unvieled the full roster for the DLC pack in which players will be able to play as Joker from the Batman comics, Spawn from his comics created by Todd McFarlane and T-800 Terminator from the Terminator movies. Anime gamers got some news as well from Bandai Namco and Atlus. We are getting some new characters and fun gameplay in the upcoming One Punch Man video game and people can expect to play as Goku’s son Gohan in the upcoming Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot game. Persona fans can expect to play Persona 5 Royal in early spring of 2020 if you are in the West and not Japan. I also have some sad news for Marvel fans. It’s been reported that due to a financial deal dispute with Sony and Disney, it’s unlikely that Spider-Man will return in future MCU movies. From I heard, it’s not finalized yet, but the chances of Spider-Man going back to Sony is pretty high. Once this happens, there will be two more planned Spider-Man movies with Tom Holland still retaining as Peter/Spider-Man, but since Disney won’t be involved, Spider-Man will have to go on his adventures without mentioning anything from Disney. Which means, we’re going have to forget the moments with Iron Man, Thanos and anything related to the Avengers. This could also mean that Spider-Man could be part in movies with Venom since Sony does own Venom. On a probably good news, on August 29th, Sony is bring back Spider-Man: Far From Home into theaters again but this time, they are going to be showing you deleted scenes that were removed from the original showing. In random news, I saw the Netflix movie Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus. I might do a review on this movie, but I will say that this movie was really good. It reminded me of watching the cartoons when it was on TV and still had the same type of humor.

With all this said, let’s go spider fans!

With all this Spider-Man news going on, here are some Spider-Man videos!

That’s all folks! I hope you enjoyed your memes and dose of Sony humor!

 

Stan Lee’s daughter responds to Disney’s treatment towards Stan Lee’s Legacy and Spider-Man

The fans took the news rough about Sony taking Spider-Man back and leaving Disney. Some fans blamed Sony for not letting Spider-Man hang out with the Avengers, while others blamed Disney for being greedy and only wanting Spider-Man to make an extra buck.  There is one person who also took it rough not just about the character, but also personally. Stan Lee’s daughter Joan Celia has something to say against Disney. In a interview with TMZ, here is what she said:

“Marvel and Disney seeking total control of my father’s creations must be checked and balanced by others who, while still seeking to profit, have genuine respect for Stan Lee and his legacy. Whether it’s Sony or someone else’s, the continued evolution of Stan’s characters and his legacy deserves multiple points of view. When my father died, no one from Marvel or Disney reached out to me. From day one, they have commoditized my father’s work and never shown him or his legacy any respect or decency. In the end, no one could have treated my father worse than Marvel and Disney’s executives.”

That’s her response to Disney.

Sony’s response to the fans in regards to Disney’s divorce

Image result for spider-man sad

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.

*UPDATE: 8/20/19* Spider-Man movie news: FFH returns to theaters! Spider-Man no longer in MCU?

Image result for spider-man far from home ending

I don’t work for the Daily Bugle, but if I was, I would be filling your timeline or feed about Spider-Man 24/7. I got some Spider-Man news for you and it’s about the movies. I will give you the good news first and then some bad news! I am not J. Jonah Jameson, but I am here to give you the spider scoop!

Following the same strategy as Avengers: Endgame, Marvel and Sony are bringing back Spider-Man: Far From Home into theaters again. The movie will be in theaters in August 29th and it will include scenes and moments that was not present in the first running in theaters. Be careful if you plan to see this movie, this movie takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame, there will be spoilers!

Here is some bad news for the fate of this young hero. There might not be anymore Spider-Man MCU movies in the future. According the sources from IGN and Deadline, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige stated that there won’t be any plans for more Spider-Man movies because of the financial dispute with Sony and Disney. Based on what Deadline is describing, Sony wants more money as opposed to what Disney intended to do which was a 50/50 deal. Since Sony refuses to do this, MCU are willing to let Sony take back Spider-Man. There are rumors that there are two planned Spider-Man movies, but it will most likely not have MCU involved. In results, Kevin Feige will unlikely be the creative lead writer to any Spider-Man movies.

UPDATE: 8/20/19 There could be one chance of hope!

Earlier today, it was announced that the plans with Sony and Disney have been dismissed and Spider-Man wasn’t going to be present in the MCU world. However, there could be hope. According to sources, it is possible for “a deal might still be reached between Disney and Sony.” There could be hope in this news.
