Spider-Man no longer in the MCU after disagreement between Sony and Disney (UPDATE #2): Sony releases statement

Forums - Movies Discussion - Spider-Man no longer in the MCU after disagreement between Sony and Disney (UPDATE #2): Sony releases statement

Well, Raimi's first two films and Spider-verse are better than Homecoming and Far From Home. They don't need Disney to succeed with the character, but they could just as likely faceplant, too. Regardless, I'm sure this is disappointing for MCU fans.

If I still gave a fart about the MCU, I'b be PISSED! Anyway, as a Sony fanboy, and someone who is no fan of Disney: Fuck Disney! Just in general. Fuck their cinematic pablum. Fuck their identity politics. Fuck their weak-ass, creatively bankrupt remakes. Fuck their monolithic presence in the world of entertainment. Yeah! Vinland Saga!

As for the business end of this as it concerns Sony......It's an iffy move. However, if people like the movies, I don't think it's going to matter much if Falcon doesn't have a cameo in the next movie. Or whoever. Most of the integration with the rest of the MCU would have been mostly fluff until the next big story convergence, which is a ways away. Hopefully the MCU train will have pile-driven into the valley by then.

I went to watch aladin.... it was so damn weak, compaired to the old cartoon version.
What Ive read of reviews on Lion King is the same, even dumbo looks bad imo.

Its like they ran out of orinal ideas or story telling talent.
Disney of old, used to rock with animation.... and there was passion and life in their characters.
These old classics havnt done well as remakes.

Thats ontop of what they did to Star Wars (its gone crap after disney took over)

I didn't even want to bring up Star Wars. I mean yeah, the prequels were....worse than I thought they were initially. I had no desire to see them again before TFA and TLJ. But oooh boy, those 2 are trash. Disney stink was beginning to waft over the most recent MCU movies. I can't even express how much I though Spider-Man Homecoming sucked. I almost stopped right there, but watched GOTG 2 then Infinity War, both of which I liked well enough, especially GOTG 2. Anyway, I came out swinging because it I don't like Disney. I should have kept out of it, because there's lots of MCU fans who don't appreciate negative comments in a thread like this.



Chinese food for breakfast

 

Sony só fucking dumb to refuse a shit deal when they finance the movies, Disney gets 100% profit from merchandising and still wanted 50% of the Money tickets lol.

Get greedy get fucked. But ofcourse disney Fanboys Will go balistic on Sony.

Sony should make a Kraven the Hunter movie , the last hunt adaptation, after that time for Venom vs spiderman.

Marvel need to fucking start with xmen and fantástic Four , i have no interest in the Direction they are going.



 

On the bright side, at least Tom Hardy (Venom) and Spiderman can be a thing now.



I'm very amused at the amount of people in this thread who think that Spider-man never experienced success at the cinema until he was part of the MCU.

Thing is, Sony "flopping" (let's say to the tune of Amazing Spiderman 2 numbers) would still easily earn them more money than "succeeding" with Disney under a 50/50 deal.



In my opinion Spider-Man doesn't need to be mixed in with MCU, it is better as a stand-alone film.

Agreed. Infinity War was the last one I watched. GOTG3 and Dr. Strange 2 are the only two I MIGHT see in the future. Their remakes are trash. The only one I watched was Lion King because it was supposed to be faithful to the OG cartoon. Unfortunately the lions in the film are a perfect metaphor for Disney's direction of late. Expensive, soulless representations of the classics that came before. 

Sadly, because it is Disney, parents will shove their kids down into the seats, regardless of quality.

So does this mean no more spider man game on PlayStation?

Well, considering insomniac made the best selling super hero game ever.... i think spider man 2 is prety safe as playstation exclusive.



Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.

Tobey maguire spider man 1 and 2 are still the best spiderman movies. I wonder, what if sony makes spiderverse movie whit Tobey, Andrew garfield and tom holland. It would be amazing to see spiderverse whit 3 incarnations of spiderman!
