Disney, Sony Dispute Ends Kevin Feige & Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man Involvement

UPDATE: io9 paints a picture of these events as less doom-and-gloom as some might think. A representative for Sony told the outlet the dispute between studios “is simply over a producer credit and negotiations are ongoing.” The original story follows.

Deadline is reporting that after Disney and Sony Pictures failed to reach new terms, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige will not be producing any more Spider-Man films following a dispute between the two companies that has lasted for a few months.

The outlet notes that two Spider-Man movies are currently in the works with star Tom Holland and director Jon Watts, meaning Feige will not be the lead producer of those movies as Marvel Studios will apparently no longer have any future involvement in the Spider-Man universe.

The fallout comes after Sony turned down Disney’s offer that future Spider-Man movies be a 50/50 co-financing arrangement. In turn, Sony offered to keep the same arrangement under the current terms with Marvel receiving about 5% of first-dollar gross, and Disney rejecting the offer.

Earlier this year Avengers: Endgame became the highest-grossing film of all time, followed by Spider-Man: Far From Home surpassing Skyfall to become the highest-grossing film ever for Sony, both produced by Feige. Sources told the outlet that Sony feels “they will be fine” without Feige at the producing helm. Watts and Holland are part of the creative template for the upcoming Spider-Man films, along with producer Amy Pascal.

Sony’s upcoming slate includes the Venom sequel, starring Tom Hardy and directed by Andy Serkis, as well as Jared Leto’s Morbius, Kraven the Hunter, and a spinoff featuring Silver Sable and Black Cat.

IO9 riporta le parole di un portavoce della Sony, che afferma che “la disputa è semplicemente sulla possibilità di avere un credito da produttore, e le trattative sono ancora in corso”. Sony aggiunge che Feige ha contribuito ad altri film del mondo di Spider-Man senza ricevere un credito da produttore (il riferimento è a Venom). Deadline, nel contempo, aggiorna l’articolo con una precisazione proveniente da insider della Sony: “Rothman in realtà ha rilanciato offrendo compromessi, ma è stata la Disney a rifiutare”.
Come sempre, probabilmente la verità sta nel mezzo, ma l’impressione è che la situazione sia più fluida di quanto inizialmente sembrava: forse ci sono margini perché le due compagnie trovino un accordo, tanto che Variety ha cambiato il titolo del suo articolo spiegando che le aziende sono giunte a un’impasse, non a una chiusura definitiva.

Le cose non sembrano migliorare, ecco la dichiarazione rilasciata da Sony sulla vicenda:

“Much of today’s news about Spider-Man has mischaracterized recent discussions about Kevin Feige’s involvement in the franchise,” Sony stated on Twitter. “We are disappointed, but respect Disney’s decision not to have him continue as a lead producer of our next live action Spider-Man film. We hope this might change in the future, but understand that the many new responsibilities that Disney has given him – including all their newly added Marvel properties – do not allow time for him to work on IP they do not own. Kevin is terrific and we are grateful for his help and guidance and appreciate the path he has helped put us on, which we will continue.”

Ottime notizie, accordo trovato, Spidey resterà nel MCU per un terzo film e almeno un'ulteriore apparizione in un altro film del MCU. Pare inoltre che Spidey farà parte anche dei film prodotti direttamente dalla Sony, realizzando il proprio universo: iniziato con Venom, e che proseguirà con Venom 2, Morbius ecc.


Sony, Marvel Make Up: Companies Will Produce Third ‘Spider-Man’ Film

Sony Pictures and Marvel have found a way to get back in the Spider-Man business together.

On Friday, the two companies jointly announced that Marvel Studios and its president, Kevin Feige, will produce the third film in the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” series. It will once again feature Tom Holland reprising his role as the title character. The rumor mill roared back to life this week with hints that the two companies were close to brokering a new agreement.

Over the summer, news broke that the Disney, Marvel’s parent company, and Sony had reached an impasse over a new financing deal. Disney wanted the film to be financed on a 50/50 basis with Marvel Studios chief Feige remaining in a consulting producer capacity. Sony is believed to have proposed keeping the arrangement under the current terms, which stipulate that Marvel receives about 5% of first-dollar gross and all merchandising revenues.

The film is scheduled for release on July 16, 2021. As part of the arrangement, Spider-Man will also appear in a future Marvel Studios film. Amy Pascal will also produce through Pascal Pictures, as she has on the first two Holland-led films.

“I am thrilled that Spidey’s journey in the MCU will continue, and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited that we get to keep working on it,” said Feige in a statement. “Spider-Man is a powerful icon and hero whose story crosses all ages and audiences around the globe. He also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes, so as Sony continues to develop their own Spidey-verse you never know what surprises the future might hold.”

Pascal was equally euphoric in her statement. “This is terrific,” she said. “Peter Parker’s story took a dramatic turn in ‘Far From Home’ and I could not be happier we will all be working together as we see where his journey goes.”

Marvel has licensed the rights to Spider-Man to Sony for nearly two decades, an agreement they forged prior to Disney’s $4 billion acquisition of the comics company in 2009. Sony achieved critical and financial acclaim with its first round of Spider-Man movies, which were directed by Sam Raimi and starred Tobey Maguire. Its second effort, starring Andrew Garfield and directed by Marc Webb, were far less successful, sending the studio back to the drawing board.

By bringing Marvel and Feige back into the fold with 2017’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” the studio was able to recapture the creative mojo of the first series. It also got a boost from having Holland’s web-spinner appear in Avengers movies, with Spidey becoming a key member of the super-team.
