To back down, we learned that Marvel Studio President Kevin Feige would no longer produce future spy films, as companies were unable to “get new terms that would have given (Sony) a share of co-financing for the future.” Fortunately, it seems that the studios have reached an agreement to co-produce a third film in the back-to-school franchise by the two studios, with Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige aboard the third part. Marvel has been granting Spider-Man rights to Sony for nearly two decades, a deal they forged before Disney acquired the comic book company for $4 billion in 2009. Sony got critical and financial applause with the first round of Spider-Man movies, directed by Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire with tobey Maguire. The second attempt with Andrew Garfield in the lead role and under the direction of Marc Webb was much less successful, sending the studio back to the drawing board. With “Spider-Man: Homecoming” of 2017, the studio was able to win back the creative mojo of the first series. He also got a boost by getting the Dutch web-madmen into the Avengers movies, with Spidey becoming a key member of the super team. Sony said it was pleased that a deal was reached The Unthinkable Happened – Spider-Man will return to Marvel Cinematic Universe after his departure, when Sony and Disney could not reach an agreement. Spider-man may be able to swing between skyscrapers, but his most important power might be to stay fixed. It is after a new agreement between Sony and Walt Disney that allows the superhero character to remain in the Marvel universe of movies. The little nightmare of Spider-Man fans is over. Tom Holland`s superhero character returns to Marvel`s Cinematic Universe after Disney and Sony removed the character from future Marvel movies earlier this year.
Sony Pictures Entertainment and Walt Disney Studios have jointly announced that a fourth film with Tom Holland`s “Spider-Man” is scheduled for July 16, 2021. The announcement also says that Disney and Sony have secured a new agreement to share the character in a later MCU movie. Details of the agreement are currently under lock and key. Over the summer, it was reported that Disney, Marvel`s parent company, and Sony had reached an impasse because of a new financing agreement. Disney wanted the film to be financed on a 50/50 basis, with fig remaining within an advisory production capacity. Sony reportedly offered to maintain the agreement under current conditions, which stipulate that Marvel will receive about 5% of the first gross dollar and all merchandising revenue. According to the agreements they made, Marvel CEO Kevin Feige will continue to give his production skills to this future Spider-Man movie and Disney will retain the merchandising rights to the character (obviously without video game rights that proved very profitable for Sony Interactive with the launch of a very popular Playstation 4 game).
