The fallout from the relationship between Sony & Disney in regards to Spider-Man and his involvement with the MCU has been messy. It has been nothing but bickering about who is at fault, but what was thought to be a lost cause could now be blossoming into something pretty substantial. This is all rumors right now though so don’t take everything literally.
According to boundingintocomics.com, the rumor comes from TVO at Lords of the Long Box. TVO says:
“Disney has made a new offer to Sony and are waiting for them to accept or counter. The hope is that this is agreed upon by D23 so a huge announcement can be made of the renewal of vows. Think about this, D23 wants to pop bigger than Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con.”
“It’s a six picture deal with Tom Holland and an option for a seventh. There are three more Spider-Man films after the third one. In essence, a new trilogy. The second trilogy will focus on Peter Parker’s college years including plans to meet up and team up with Firestar and Iceman.”
“The other three movies are two Avengers films which Spider-Man will have a larger role with the Fantasic Four becoming friends with Johnny Storm… Marvel Studios will helm and co-finance all Spider-Man related movies for 30% of the full profits. Sony will distribute, but Disney will acquire exclusive digital and online rights for Disney+ and affiliated TV networks. Marvel Studios will helm and co-finance Spiderverse live-action spin-offs under the same terms. Venom will relocate into the MCU. Sony will be given permission for TV live-action programs based on Spiderverse live-action properties.”
Whether this is true or not remains to be seen, but this could be huge for the future of the MCU and everyone involved. Hopefully we’ll be hearing about developments soon.
Also, if Venom comes to the MCU, I’ll die. – NVJ
