  1. I think another problem with the rumor is that...

    I think another problem with the rumor is that Disney and Sony are unlikely to agree on the value of the character, given Disney already has the rights to everything Spider-Man other than the film...
  2. I don’t know where anyone is even getting the...

    I don’t know where anyone is even getting the information that they are sunsetting Spider-Man as a character in the MCU, aside from their own speculation. I mean, I don’t know why they wouldn’t have...
  3. Honestly, I think the other two are far more...

    Honestly, I think the other two are far more likely. Silk is a more derivative character. Meanwhile, there are places you can go with a Silver Sable story, with her being an international mercenary,...
  4. I don't think they intend to make it that...

    I don't think they intend to make it that complicated or creatively taxing to have Spider-Man go between movies. I think the Deadline article laid out perfectly fine. I don't think the Marvel folks...
  5. I think the reason Feige agreed to allow them to...

    I think the reason Feige agreed to allow them to even have their universe be an adjunct to the MCU is to lay the foundation for more long-term deals in the future. After all, they now will receive...
  6. I can almost guarantee that this is BS. For one...

    I can almost guarantee that this is BS. For one thing, it is from We Got This Covered. If you look back at their record with stories, especially regarding the Spider-Man deal, it isn’t great. The...
  7. I think that Disney/Marvel didn’t really have too...

    I think that Disney/Marvel didn’t really have too much choice in the matter. If they wanted some revenue for any Spider-Man film they produce, they had to give something up. According to Deadline,...
  8. It is worth noting that Sony really seems to want...

    It is worth noting that Sony really seems to want to hitch their wagon 100% to the MCU. After all, according to Deadline, Sonyverse projects will be able to "call and answer" the MCU, creating what...
  9. That’s the thing that scares me. While I enjoyed...

    That’s the thing that scares me. While I enjoyed Venom and both TASM movies, they are no where near the level of quality I’ve come to expect from an MCU film. And the people producing the ones in...
  10. I think that if it was intended to be the “last...

    I think that if it was intended to be the “last hurrah”, they would’ve said so. After all, this would be the best time to announce such a thing. Because, right now, the framing of such a move would...
  11. It’s a deal for one Spider-Man film (I’m guessing...

    It’s a deal for one Spider-Man film (I’m guessing his next MCU appearance will be there) and for one appearance as a side character appearance (so wholly Disney produced). My guess is that this will...
  12. I think this is an appropriate read of the...

    I think this is an appropriate read of the situation. My understanding is that the Venomverse will basically be the pocket universe. There will be certain things that will be referenced in the MCU,...
  13. I disagree. For Sony, that means that they can...

    I disagree. For Sony, that means that they can become more like “essential viewing” for the Marvel faithful that turn up for every MCU movie. We know that is a lot of people that Sony would love to...
  14. I think it’ll be a substantial role that he ends...

    I think it’ll be a substantial role that he ends up in in that MCU film. And I’d guess it gives Disney the ability to tie up any loose ends with the character should re-negotiations go sideways like...
  15. According to Deadline, Disney made some...

    According to Deadline, Disney made some concessions to get Sony to agree to co-financing and profit-sharing of the next Spider-Man movie. Namely?

    The Sony universe of films will be tied into the...
  16. I mean, of course Sony wants to see returns on...

    I mean, of course Sony wants to see returns on the third Spider-Man film before reupping more long term. I mean, they had to give up 25% of the movie to Disney to make this happen. My guess is that...
  17. Looks like I was right that it was a 75/25 split...

    Looks like I was right that it was a 75/25 split after all. Glad to see they came to an agreement. It looks like Sony also got what it wanted by allowing for Spider-Man to be used in Sony’s films too.
  18. My understanding is that Sony had rejected the...

    My understanding is that Sony had rejected the co-financing agreement for a multitude of reasons. One of those being that they wouldn’t make as much with a profit split. Another, less obvious one, is...
  19. Frankly, I think the things that are important to...

    Frankly, I think the things that are important to them should be the same things that are important to fans. We shouldn’t be asking the question of whether or not Spider-Man is joined by Captain...
  20. I think the bigger issue is that both arguments...

    I think the bigger issue is that both arguments seem to have the conviction that “I didn’t like it, and my friends didn’t like it, therefore NO ONE liked it.” And any evidence contrarian to that is...
  21. I guess it depends. Sony does, from what we’ve...

    I guess it depends. Sony does, from what we’ve seen at least, have acknowledged their creative mis-steps. We haven’t heard anything about a Sinister Six movie being rushed out. Venom 2 is getting a...
  22. That would be Lord and Miller actually. I think...

    That would be Lord and Miller actually. I think having them take the story idea and punch it up a bit would be really great. That and I think having them have creative input on all three of the main...
  23. No. McKenna and Sommers were the guys that wrote...

    No. McKenna and Sommers were the guys that wrote the final drafts of Homecoming and Far From Home. I think it is good to ensure some franchise continuity, but get Lord and Miller in there to do...
  24. To be honest, I think we overestimate the impact...

    To be honest, I think we overestimate the impact of this situation on the bottom line. I mean, Spider-Man: Far From Home’s re-release, not even two weeks after the news broke, almost made as much as...
  25. But the truth of the matter is why would Sony...

    But the truth of the matter is why would Sony operate under the presumption that they’d start losing money? They made a Venom movie, that was poorly received, and made over $850 million. Why should...
