Spider-Man SONY Disney Divorce

Segment 1: MCU Spiderman No More?

The Skinny: Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige won’t produce any further Spider-Man films because of an inability by Disney and Sony Pictures to reach new terms that would have given the former a co-financing stake going forward. A dispute that has taken place over the past few months at the top of Disney and Sony has essentially nixed Feige, and the future involvement of Marvel from the Spider-Man universe, sources said.

Our Take: This is a power play move by Disney/Marvel to sway SONY execs onto their side. If they create enough backlash, SONY President Tom Rothman will have no choice to capitulate or face the wrath of a rabid fanbase of movies. Negotiations are still ongoing. Don’t be surprised if a deal gets reached.

However, because of Hickman’s previous comments in an interview for one of his other comic books, novelist Catherine Webb has made it clear that she’s uncomfortable with aspects of her novel The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August possibly being plagiarized by the new X-Men writer.
