Marvel Cinematic Universe is so huge and it’s spread far and wide. If you’re a fan, you know how important all these superheroes are.
And thanks to the late Stan Lee, we got to witness and fall in love with the neighborhood’s friendly superhero Spider-man.
When it was announced that Spider-man would join the mighty Avengers, everyone believed it to be out of pity.
You know, since everyone had a team, even Deadpool.
But Tom Holland was so impressive that he was able to win the hearts of almost all the fans.
And we, as fans, happily accepted him as a part of the Avengers and the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Well, you know how the phrase goes, “all good things come to an end”. Similarly, it looks like Spider-man’s days as a Marvel superhero might come to an end.
What is going on on spider universe?
Spider-Man is a Marvel comic book character – yet in 1999 Sony purchased the film rights for the superhero.
Sony made five movies of their own with the character. Three of them with Tobey Maguire and two with Andrew Garfield.
In 2015 the studio hit an arrangement with Disney and Marvel Studios to bring Spider-Man into the MCU.
The deal implied Disney would co-produce and offer benefits from movies with Spider-Man.
Deadline, an entertainment site has revealed in the course of the most recent couple of months that Disney and Sony were “not able” to arrive at new terms for the financing of future motion pictures.
What’s more, it was seen at Comic-Con a month ago Marvel’s declarations for its next phase of movies and shows neglected to incorporate Spider-Man.
Hence, it means that we might no longer see actor Tom Holland as Spider-man in the new Marvel films.
Sony Vs. Disney.
Film rights for the superhero are possessed by Sony – and Holland appeared in films like Avengers: Endgame in light of an arrangement among Sony and Marvel Studios that Disney owns.
However, both Sony and Disney haven’t been able to come to a conclusion.
An announcement released by Sony on Tuesday stated the organization was “disappointed” by Disney’s interest for a more prominent stake in the Spider-Man films.
And also by its proposition to downsize the contribution of Marvel president Kevin Feige in the motion pictures.
“Much of today’s news about Spider-Man has mischaracterised recent discussions about Kevin Feige’s involvement in the franchise,” said the statement.
“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.”
An Ongoing Battle.
Negotiations had been in progress for several months among Sony and Disney over the fate of the property, with Disney requesting future movies be financed uniformly between the two studios and Feige go about as consultant producer.
Yet, Sony wanted to adhere to existing terms, which qualified Marvel for 5% of first-dollar gross and all marketing income, with the rest going to Sony. However, the accurate financing proportion is obscure.
Disney at that point questioned the profundity of Feige’s association, given the super-producer’s connection to other Marvel ventures, including the new streaming channel Disney Plus, set to launch in November.
Feige has been intently connected with the Avengers since the introduction of Iron Man in 2008 and has been generally credited with fulfilling the establishment’s committed fans close by Disney’s craving for honors and critical acknowledgment.
What does the future hold?
If Sony and Disney don’t come to an agreement as soon as possible, it might mean that there won’t be a Spider-man.
It means no saving the earth and mankind associating with the Marvel universe.
And it means no more Tom Holland as Peter Parker and his alter-ego, neighborhood’s friendly superhero Spider-Man.
Also, we won’t be seeing the beautiful Zendaya as Mary Jane.
