Spider-Man MCU future in trouble as Disney, Sony fail to reach agreement
According to Deadline, there are two more Spider-Man films in the works directed by Jon Watts and again starring Tom Holland. However, Feige won’t be the lead creative producer.
Deadline goes on to discuss the entire thing coming down to money.
“Disney asked that future Spider-Man films be a 50/50 co-financing arrangement between the studios, and there were discussions that this might extend to other films in the Spider-Man universe,” the report states. “Sony turned that offer down flat, and I don’t believe they even came back to the table to figure out a compromise.”
The news was shocking to fans, who seem to love the latest Spider-Man films within the MCU.
See what they’re saying on Twitter below.
Spider-Man: Far From Home, the latest film to feature the character, just became Sony’s highest-grossing film ever. Without the MCU tie, it’s unclear how the future films will play out. It is also possible that Disney and Sony could return to negotiations, but nothing is for sure.
More Spider-Man news
The latest Spidey film, Spider-Man: Far From Home, is the first Spider-Man movie to make over a billion dollars.
Not only is the new flick the highest-grossing Spider-Man film, but it’s also the 40th movie to gross over $1 billion at the box office.
If the movie continues to soar, it will soon pass The Dark Knight, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Zootopia, Alice in Wonderland, and The Phantom Menace in that order.
