Disney-Sony Standoff Ends Marvel Studios & Kevin Feige’s Involvement In Spider-Man

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.

Update:

This morning Sony released the following statement to clarify their position on the matter:

“Much of today’s news about Spider-Man has mischaracterized recent discussions about Kevin Feige’s involvement in the franchise. 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.”

Tom Holland Brings His New Spider-Man Costume To Jimmy Kimmel Live

Tom Holland went on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to officially debut his latest Spider-Man costume which is largely faithful to Spidey’s comic book costume, even though it favors red and black over the traditional Spider-Man red and blue.

Holland made his appearance semi in-character during a sketch with Kimmel’s sidekick, Guillermo Rodriguez. Somehow, Guillermo managed to snag Spidey’s mask, and Peter Parker was forced to use another way to hide his identity. Shortly thereafter, Holland unmasked and plugged his Spider-Man sequel. But when Kimmel pressed Holland on whether the movie took place after Infinity War, the web-slinging actor proved to be evasive with his answers.

Holland isn’t the only veteran MCU actor returning from Spider-Man: Homecoming. Michael Keaton, Jon Favreau, Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, and Angourie Rice will all reprise their roles in the sequel. Additionally, Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders are returning as ex-S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Nick Fury and Maria Hill. Jake Gyllenhaal is playing Far From Home‘s main villain, who is widely believed to be Mysterio.

Spider-Man: Far From Home will be released on Friday, July 5.

Avengers And Other Super Heroes To Assemble In New Themed Areas At Disneyland Resort, Disneyland Paris & Hong Kong Disneyland

Highly anticipated new experiences at Disneyland Resort, Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland will soon invite guests to become part of a bigger universe filled with epic heroes and adventures, and today we’re sharing a sneak peek! Developed in partnership with Marvel Studios and Marvel Themed Entertainment, these three new areas will champion the next generation of Super Heroes.

At Disneyland Resort, the new Super Hero-themed land will begin recruiting guests in 2020, with even more new experiences to follow. The Guardians of the Galaxy will be joined by Spider-Man and the Avengers in what will become a completely immersive Super Hero universe, furthering the evolution of Disney California Adventure park. This new land will be anchored by the popular Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!, in the adjacent space that is currently occupied by “a bug’s land.” “It’s Tough to Be a Bug” closed March 19 to make way for this new heroic experience; the rest of the land will close in late summer.

As part of the transformative multi-year expansion announced for Disneyland Paris, the new Marvel-themed area at Walt Disney Studios Park will include a reimagined attraction where riders will team up with Iron Man and their favorite Avengers on a hyper-kinetic adventure in 2020. This will follow an epic experience launching this summer, when Disneyland Paris hosts Marvel Summer of Super Heroes from June 10 to September 30. Favorite heroes will take the stage for a brand new, live-action super-production featuring cutting-edge special effects and spectacular projections.

Multi-year expansion plans are also underway at Hong Kong Disneyland, including a new themed area that will include an exciting attraction where guests team up with Ant-Man and The Wasp. This new attraction will join the Iron Man Experience, which opened in 2017 and is already the most popular attraction at the resort.

Join your favorite heroes soon for these and more epic adventures at Disney Parks around the world!

Did Spider-Man Have A Cameo In Iron Man 2?

A very cool fan theory has been confirmed by Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland. The theory is that the little Iron Man fan who holds up his hand to fight one of the Hammer drones in the 2010 film was none other than Peter Parker.

Holland confirmed the Iron Man 2 Spider-Man, or at least Peter Parker, appearance.

“It is Peter Parker,” he says. “I can confirm that, that is Peter Parker. I can confirm that as of today. I literally had a conversation with Kevin Feige only 20 minutes ago. Maybe I’ve just done a big, old spoiler, but it’s out there now. It’s cool. I like the idea that Peter Parker has been in the universe since the beginning.”

A young Peter Parker / Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

Spider-Man: Homecoming also stars Zendaya, Jon Favreau, Donald Glover and Tyne Daly.

Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters on July 7.
