Marvel Studios, along with its president Kevin Feige, will no longer be producing Spider-Man films. Two more Spider-Man films are reportedly in development, with both director Jon Watts and star Tom Holland attached.

-C!

We need better gun regulations so that Sony can stop shooting itself in the foot.

Disney will just buy Sony at some point

This where I get confused on all of this he can't appear in any Marvel films or this is just in regards to the solo movies?

Marvel Studios was the hottest free agent quarterback in the league....who went to the very worst team in the league...for a very modest two year contract....and took them to the Super Bowl both times...and won!

And now that its time to negotiate a deal that reflects the contribution of the free agent....and the team looks at two Super Bowl trophies and tells the free agent to screw off....without ever negotiating in good faith.

Sony probably thinks the ‘success’ of Venom and Into The Spiderverse means they can take the ingredients of the current Spider-Man franchise and make a winning dish on their own.  But I sure if it was that easy....Andrew Garfield would be on his 4th Spider-Man movie right about now.

This is probably good news.  Tom Holland et al are contracted with Sony.  They can integrate him into their other Spider-verse movies and he’ll be the headliner instead of an ancillary Avenger.  

Frankly, I’d rather the X-Men we’re still separate, though at a more competent studio than Fox.  Disney has too many characters now to fully utilize all of them.  We’re probably looking at one X-movie every two or three years as is.

And no, from the reports I’ve read, Disney was trying to renegotiate the deal.  Before Marvel got to use the Spider-Man character and Sony got to release the solo movies and collect virtually all the profits.  Disney wanted half the profits from all future solo movies but offered Sony nothing in return.  Sony decided that releasing their own movies would be more profitable than taking a cut of an MCU movie.  And they may be right.

They wanted 50/50 co-financing. Which would probably mean half the profit, but also half the budget and half the risk. It would be incorrect to say they offered nothing in return. Sony just didn’t value what they were offering.

Ironically, I read somewhere the Sony/Disney Spider-Man deal to co-produce these films stipulated that if FAR FROM HOME cleared a billion, Marvel could oversee a third. If it hadn’t, full control would've reverted back to Sony.

Sony is definitely cocky after Venom's success & Spider-Verse's Oscar.

I'm still confident they will settle this before Tom Holland needs to suit up again.

So Marvel/Disney has lost Peter Parker Steve Rogers and Tony Stark take a minute and let that sink in

The one bummer in all of this is not seeing the FF and Spider-Man together on the big screen.
