    this SUCKS. Marvel had done a great job re-booting this Spidey. Wonder how this impacts the Avengers going forward.

    Unbelievable. Marvel did this to themselves by splitting up their properties so much over the years. They fractured their own universe of characters. :|

    Stupid move on Sony's part, IMHO.

    I’ve always liked the actor playing Spider-Man more than the actual character. Tobey McGuire, Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland were all spot on at the time.

    Sony wanted to keep the same deal, Disney wanted to change it.

    I get that, but Marvel's involvement took the character to new heights and Sony cashed in. Marvel was smart and held onto the merchandising rights so they do make money on Spidey regardless of what Sony does with the films. Surprised that Sony was so quick to slam the door on negotiations with the success of the MCU Spidey, that's all. Although some on twitter are saying it isn't a done deal yet.

    Man that’s a crying shame. The last two were really good.

    Didn’t they do that because nobody was buying comic books in the 90s and they were going broke so they had to start selling off stuff

    The Irony is that at the D23 Expo this weekend they unveiled the new Avengers Campus at Disneyland that will feature a new Spider-Man Ride.

    I think they work out a “last second” deal.

    Marvel (Disney) still owns all but the film rights. In 2011, when Sony Pictures was hard up for cash they sold back the merchandising rights to Spider-Man.

    I guess there was a 95/5 split in Sony's favor for the film profits. That's crazy by any standard. Disney was asking for 50/50 split since they were handling production.

    It's such B.S. There is so much money to go around. I have no faith in Sony. None. TH seems to be willing to just go the Sony only path. You can't blame the kid. He gets the role of a lifetime.

    It's just B.S. Now everything that comes out of Disney/Marvel that is Spiderman will be generic. Not TH.

    Sony is going to screw it up and the Avengers property is losing a major peace that young fans love.

    you might not have any faith in Sony, but they did make THE best Spiderman movie ever IMO with Into The Spiderverse. If Sony were smart, they'd make Lord and Miller the godfathers of whatever comes next with Spidey and if they did that, I'd have no issues moving forward. Those guys can do no wrong.
