Sony Closes The Door On Spider-Man's Return To The MCU

Sony Closes The Door On Spider-Man's Return To The MCU


Jay Cochran - September 05, 2019
Variety reports that Sony Pictures chairman and CEO Tony Vinciquerra has closed the door on Spider-Man returning to the MCU, at least for now.

“For the moment the door is closed, We had a great run with (Feige) on Spider-Man movies. We tried to see if there’s a way to work it out….the Marvel people are terrific people, we have great respect for them, but on the other hand we have some pretty terrific people of our own. Kevin didn’t do all the work.”

With the deal between Sony and Disney over, Sony can once again use the Wall-Crawler to more directly help boost their own universe of Marvel-based spider characters such as Venom and Morbius. Of course if things don't work out and these Sony Spider-Universe movies start to bomb at the box office, it seems like Vinciquerra is trying to leave the door open just ever so slightly in hopes they can go back to Disney and renegotiate a new deal.

No, on the contrary, I loved EVERYTHING about the MCU, but with Guardians of the Galaxy, they pretty much just started flushing the whole thing, piece by piece ,down the porcelain crap-catcher.

Well, it just comes down to taste as usual. GotG is my all-time favourite film. I know it's not objectively the best in the MCU or the world, but it is my personal favourite and I recognize several things that make it a great movie. Still, I understand you not liking it at all. It is a complete tonal shift from Winter Soldier.

Well, you prefer dancing Emo for no reason Parker over Thorbowski with depression, and you've made clear you've enjoyed next to nothing from the MCU, so I'm not surprised.

And frankly, is what the MCU did with Spider-Man so great? Five movies in and he was still basically Robin to Iron Man's Batman.

The thing about this whole split is it was always going to happen. Sony was perfectly willing to let Disney take the wheel for a bit, but there's a world of difference between handing somebody the keys and giving them your pink-slip.

Fact is, Disney doesn't own the movie rights to Spidey, Sony does. Sony wants to build their own Spidey-Verse without having to share creative control . . . or revenue, with Disney. A clean break is better for both parties.

*shrugs* I'd say Tom Holland Spidey's world has been built up enough that Sony could make a good movie without leaning on the mcu as a crutch. Granted their track record doesn't fill one with confidence (although the 1st two Raimi movies were pretty great) but we'll see. I definitely expect that when the next big 'event' movie in the mcu rolls around, disney will throw enough money at sony to bring back spidey, which of course will be huge. So overall i'm not worried about it, especially since given what we know about phase 4 so far, there aren't a lot of movies where you'd expect spidey to make an appearance anyhow.

Its really not smart for Sony to continue Spiderman disregarding everything that took place in the MCU and for Disney to continue their story in the MCU without Spiderman.... I think when it finally comes down to making the next movie a new deal will be made. Its just one big game of "Chicken".

It's so weird people keep saying this as if what Sony dd with their first version of Spider-Man didn't unlock the door for the MCU in the first place. How about Sony keeps doing what they do best, and somebody tell Disney to stop "F#*$ up"

I'd take a hundred Emo Peters over a single Big Thorbowski.

If Sony had stopped at the first two original Spider-Man movies that would be a valid argument. But since then we've had 3 crappy Spider-Man movies by Sony not to mention a pretty weak-ass Venom movie.

No team ups with any of the heroes that live in New York, like any of the defenders, its was just a stupid move, they could have done a Disney show with team ups with daredevil or Jessica Jones or anything Im so upset. The only thing they have that would be kinda cool is venom and Spider-Man. But being part of the mcu is much greater. Sony you suck everything you sell is over priced #$##. You have failed
