Spider-Man New Details From The Marvel And Sony Spider-Man Deal written by Sean Gerber February 10, 2015 The Hollywood Reporter has additional details on the announced deal between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures Entertainment that will see Spider-Man included in an unnamed Marvel movie and a new solo film from Sony on July 28, 2017. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal, who will be enjoying a new production deal from Sony, will co-produce the solo feature. The new details show that no money has exchanged hands between the studios. Sony gets a much needed shot in the arm for Spider-Man via his inclusion in a Marvel film while Marvel gets to continue enjoying all the merchandising revenue Sony’s Spidey films generate. Sony still holds creative control for Spider-Man films, as we already know, and this includes final approval over casting a new Spider-Man. Yes, Andrew Garfield is out. Sony will look for a younger actor to play Spider-Man in that unnamed Marvel film, which many believe will be CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR. That film shoots in April, so if Spider-Man is going to be in it, expect that casting search to be conducted and concluded rather quickly. Marc Webb, who directed the last two AMAZING SPIDER-MAN films for Sony, is also out. Franchise producers Matt Tolmach and Avi Arad will serve as executive producers going forward. As noted in the original announcement, Marvel and Sony will explore opportunities to include MCU characters in future Spider-Man films. THR’s sources acknowledge that this could be the first step in Marvel acquiring the movie rights to Spider-Man in full, or in an even bigger step than that, Disney acquiring Sony should the latter become available.

April 13, 2016 LoganGarrett I never even considered the possibility of Disney buying Sony. While possible i think thats extremely unlikely…but never say never. Hey, if Disney/Sony bought Fox then all the Marvel characters could play together finally. Lol Adrian Edmondson Still hard to believe this has happened Adrian Unfortunately, he’s busy with his own YA franchise now but I really like Dylan O’Brien for Peter. Michael Lalaian How important of a studio is Sony outside of Spider-Man? I haven’t done any research before posting this (I suppose I should have), but I can’t really think of any major releases or franchises that Sony has outside of Spider-Man. It probably doesn’t need to exist as its own studio, at least not from what I can tell. If Disney buys it, all the better. Kerry Vanderberg If they can make it work with his schedule with THE FLASH, then I’d say get Grant Gustin in there! Other than that, I’m not sure who would be the best actor. I’m hoping we get someone who’s good in both the suit AND as Peter Parker. Personally I didn’t care as much for Garfield, but that had more to do with the overall characterization of Peter Parker than Garfield’s performance. The two are kind of linked now, so I’m ready for a different take. Maybe this means that they’ll be able to bring back Shailene Woodley to play Mary Jane by the time they start making a solo MCU Spider-man film. That would make my day a few times over! David Rosen If Disney buys Sony, do we need to start talking about the M word? that being monopoly… Sean Gerber Of course not – Warner Bros., Paramount, Universal, and Fox would all still be there, among others. oliver_chang Disney planning to buy Sony movie studio or the whole Sony company? Can’t imagine Disney making TVs and phones…and sue Samsung and others for everything. Sean Gerber THR said Sony, so I wrote it that way here, but my guess is it would only be the movie studio. T.J. If you’ve got access to Spider-Man already, buying the rest of Sony seems a little like buying The Matrix on DVD and then buying Reloaded & Revolutions just to complete the set.
