    Default So...if the Sony partnership is off how long until Spidey has an "accident"

    https://www.cbr.com/sony-kills-spide...l-with-marvel/ Of course doesn't Sony have the film rights to the other Spider-characters?

    If you mean will Spider-Man get Perlmutter'd the way X-Men did?

    Not a chance. Not gonna happen. The Fox deal with X-Men was different from the deal with Sony. And Spider-Man's merchandise of which Marvel owns rights is way bigger than X-Men.

    And in any case, X-Men went from the center of the Marvel Universe to the margins. Spider-Man has always been a largely solo hero who was a junior figure in the Avengers and other teams. So it's not the same situation.

    At least X-Men was still being published. Fantastic Four was outright canceled after Secret Wars (2015) and wasn't relaunched until Fresh Start.
    The spider is always on the hunt.

    I love that when the FF was gone people were swearing up and down that was not the reason the FF was gone. Then when the FF came back everyone did a 180 and admitted that was indeed the reason they were canned. Sony should just do the deal, Disney needs the money.

    accident? Nothing's going to happen to Spider-Man
    The J-man

    I post via my phone a lot, therefore I make the occasional grammatical error. Not an excuse just forewarning you. Feel free to call me out I won't mind.

    I have a feeling that Sony will lose some money with Morbius-because why is that movie being made at all?-and then the next Spiderman will bomb critically. Give it a few years and Sony will be begging Disney for help.

    Because Venom worked.

    If Morbius is made on a low-budget and released carefully, it could succeed.

    -and then the next Spiderman will bomb critically.
    ITSV which was a non-MCU movie was seen as far better as the MCU stuff and you know walked home with an Oscar.

    And after all, the most critically respected Spider-Man films, the first two Raimi films were made well before Disney bought Marvel. And the success of those films are what revived interest in Marvel's properties allowing them to attract capital investors to get the MCU running.

    If the deal is dead the one upside to this is that we no longer have to put up with Spidey's hero worship of Iron Man. It was the most grating aspect of the character

    thing is I would not be surprised if Sony gets gobbled up by another company. That could put a damper on future deals.

    Apple needs to buy a library and CBS/Viacom needs to get bigger. Sony is probably a desirable piece for someone else.

    A Spidey vs Venom movie was always gonna happen, but I predict it will be sooner now than later.
