Hereís the deal - both companies are terribly greedy, but this one is on Disney for actually being the cause.

I donít give a damn how much money they lost out on with Far From Home, because at the end of the day, the films were finally really good/enjoyable, and sometimes you just need to take the loss in a complicated situation.

Does Disney REALLY need even more money? Are they not one of the most profitable companies in the world at this point? Did Endgame not rake in 2 billion dollars?

On top of that - To the people defending either companyís greed, why the fuck do YOU care about how much money either media conglomerate should make? Youíre not seeing any of that money. Youíre just a fan who they see as nothing more than an open wallet who will consume their product.

At the end of the day, Disney not taking one fucking loss now makes us all losers, because the Sonyís track record with live-action Spider-Man films since 2007 has been, at best, pretty shit.

Sony and Disney are both wrong for not working something out here, but itís Disney who got greedy and decided that they just needed that much more money, not giving a fuck about any of you in the process.

Stop defending greed.

I was at FanExpo in Toronto on Sunday and got chatting to a few comics people who worked for Marvel and other projects... apparently the inside chatter is that it's not so much a money thing as Sony is looking to crank out Spidey related movies at a quicker pace than Marvel is comfortable with; Sony wants a regular cash cow, whereas Marvel wants a more methodical and structured pace (which to be fair has worked for them). Marvel also doesn't want to spread it's talent around too thing... like Feige is crazy busy but still pitched in to consult on Venom; Marvel is fearful that Sony will crank out more middle of the road stuff like Venom and will hurt the overall market.

Such is the comics folks rumours anyway.

Speaking of going to the comic con; got to meet the likes of Klaus Janson and Phil Jiminez among a host of others... Everyone was downright awesome. Weirdest encounter was me and buddy were getting our bearings when an older guy asked if we were lining up for something; We said now and wound up having a friendly chat with the guy for about 20 minutes when I noticed he had a guest pass around his neck... I asked him about it and he said he was just there to support his son and turned and pointed 20 or so feet away at Todd McFarlane... at which point he introduced himself. Funny guy!

Details have yet to be released, but it seems a deal has been struck between Sony and Disney that will see the two companies collaborate to co-produce the third Spider-Man movie, and also allow Spidey to continue appearing in other MCU films.

Cinematic disaster averted.

This is fantastic news.

More so because of THIS

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.

I am all for a Spider-verse, and would love it if Peter stayed mostly in the MCU. Venom, Spider-Gwen, and Myles can get the every other year treatment from Sony.

I mean ideally Disney would just buy back the rights, but Sony wonít sell.

Oh well, this is good news!

I never knew that news involving a fictional character could make me so happy, but dammit was I thrilled earlier today when I heard that Spidey was staying in the MCU. And if anything, I'm surprised that two mega-corporations were able to actually do right by the fans and work this out (and I get this was the obvious choice to make for both companies, but I just didn't have high hopes that a deal was going to be reached).
