Spider-Man is out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe
Just when we thought the Marvel Cinematic Universe had found its footing thanks to the Disney and Fox merger, Spider-Man seems to have now, well, snapped out of the franchise.
Marvel big boss Kevin Feige has been removed from producing future Spider-Man projects if the two sides companies can't strike a deal, Deadline's has reported. Disney had asked for a 50/50 co-financing agreement between the two studios on future Spider-Man films. However, Sony turned this down.
As for going back to the way the previous two films were made, where Disney would only receive five percent of first dollar gross, Disney turned this down.
However, a report from Variety has reported that “a deal might still be reached between Disney and Sony but there are no talks currently going on." We hope so.
It would be a big loss for the MCU, seeing as Spidey’s previous film left things on quite the cliff hanger. Also, who will take over the mantle of Iron Man? Let’s get this solved, fellas.
Speaking of Sony, it’s been revealed that Venom is getting a sequel, and its being directed by Andy Serkis. Is Sony thinking of putting the web head back into their flicks? Who knows at this point.
