Deadpool 3 in works with Marvel Studios
Marvel is a real popular franchise that no only still gives us comics of our heroes like Avengers, Spider-Man and X-Men, it has also expanded into movie companies. Disney holds some rights for characters and gave us movies like Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy and Black Panther. Fox has X-Men, Deadpool and Fantastic Four. Sony has Spider-Man and Venom. Thanks to an agreement with Disney and Fox, Disney has more access to Fox titled characters from Marvel meaning we could get a potential X-Men and Fantastic Four movie withing the Avengers world. However, this also includes the rated-R comedy action movie Deadpool. Today, I found some interesting news in regards to Deadpool and the people behind Marvel Studios. In a talk show from Live with Kelly and Ryan, Ryan Reynolds (actor who plays as Wade Wilson/Deadpool) made an appearance on the show and stated that he is currently working on Deadpool 3. He also mentions that they are working on the movie at the Marvel Studios. So far there is no release date or no confirmation on any returning directors or producers. Some people are speculating that if the movie is going to be working at Marvel Studios it could be possible for Deadpool to be in a world where Avengers exists. What do you think?
Rumor news: Tom Holland MIGHT make a cameo in Venom 2
Even though Spider-Man is part of the MCU, he is still owned by Sony. If you remembered a whole back, Spider-Man was briefly removed from the MCU world all because Disney wanted a new deal with Sony where they get 50/50 of income from the webhead and this caused Sony to pull him away; fortunately, Spider-Man is still in the MCU with the Avengers with a settled deal. However, Sony does have plans for Spider-Man in their own Sony Universe with Venom and Morbius.
What I am about to say is not 100% confirmed but it is a rumor. According to rumors and sources, there is talks of having Tom Holland Spider-Man appear in the sequel movie Venom 2. Thanks to a deal with Sony and Disney, Marvel-Sony is in talks of having MCU Spider-Man appear in their own movies. However, there are some negotiations that needs to be talked before anything is confirmed. If it is true, sources say that this Spider-Man might be an alternate version where he is not involved with the MCU world. Another claim is that if it is MCU Spider-Man, then that would mean Venom is also part of the MCU.
How do you feel about this rumor news? Do you want this to happen?
2022 is going to be a long wait for Spider-Man fans. It was announced by Marvel and Sony that 2018’s animated movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is going to be getting a sequel. The sequel will be out in theaters on April 8th, 2022. It looks like Miles Morales and Peter B. Parker are going to be meeting some new Spider-Men versions. In a old post I wrote, movie co-producer and writer Phil Lord commented on Twitter that if Spider-Verse makes a lot of money and break records reaching $200 million, he would consider adding the Japanese live action Tokusatsu version Spider-man or also known as Supaidāman.
Tokusatsu Spider-Man synopsis:
1978 Spider-Man tokusatsu series is well known inside and outside the genre, both as a curiosity and as a sign of just how widely popular the Marvel hero is. This iteration of Spidey is a biker named Takuya Yamashiro, who gains his powers after a blood transfusion from the last warrior of Planet Spider. As Spider-Man he can perform all the heroic feats we’re used to, plus transform the ship Marveller into the giant robot Leopardon.
Greetings spider fans! I hope you seen and enjoyed 2018’s movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Sony wanted to do a movie based on the 2014 comic called Spider-Verse and have Miles Morales be the protagonist and this movie became a huge success. It was so good, it even beat records against Disney’s Incredibles 2. Revealed yesterday, Sony released a teaser revealing that we’re going to get sequel movie. The sequel will be released in April 8th, 2022.
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.”
How do you feel about this news?
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.
Greetings Spider-Man fans! I got some exciting news for you if love Spider-Man. If you haven’t gotten the chance to play 2018 Marvel Spider-Man for the PS4, today is your lucky day! It’s been announced by the Playstation Blog that Insomniac Games is re-releasing this PS4 best selling game with all the DLC in it in the lowest price. This version is called Marvel Spider-Man: Game of the Year Edition. This game will be coming out digital and in physical format for a price of $39.99. This includes the standard game with the DLC story “The City That Never Sleeps.” This DLC includes many costumes and challenges and it focuses on characters such as Black Cat Silver Sable and Hammerhead. If you haven’t got this game and you’re interested in playing as Spider-Man in a immersive world, get this game in a moderate price.
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.

Ko-fi: My Ko-fi
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!
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.
