New Scoop States Spider-Man Rights:
Sony & Disney are in the greatest working relations right now than they could be. Sony & Marvel aren’t just putting out movies that link 2 different Universes, but Sony is also planning Spider-Man shows for Disney+, and the two companies are also not competing a whole lot with their release dates, but rather planning their releases in a way so Sony & Marvel could both profit the most. All the animosity that the two studios might have had in the past is not there anymore.
But from a latest scoop that came from Marvel Scooper Mikey Sutton has stated that the rights for Spider-Man might soon revert back to Marvel/Disney. That isn’t because Disney is buying off Spider-Man from Sony, because Spider-Man alone could prove to be a very expensive property, but it’s because Sony is still in contention to be sold to a bigger company like Apple or Amazon. If that happens, then according the conditions upon which Sony bought Spider-Man from Marvel, the rights of Spider-Man and all the other characters that are related to him will automatically revert back to Marvel.
The war of the streaming services is on an all-time high. Netflix is producing massive original content all over the world. Amazon is also producing great content but their pace is a little too slow. Apple as compared to them is even slower & doesn’t even have a lot of content to make people subscribe for Apple TV+. Disney already had Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar & their own content, but they also bought Fox. So in a few years, they could easily beat Amazon, HBO Max & Apple, if not Netflix. That is why Apple & Amazon are in dire need of rights to more original content, which is why Sony could be bought by them.
Sony has been denying that they aren’t going to sell, but that could just be to prevent any rumors from being circulated before a deal is finalized. According to Sutton and his industry sources, there is still a lot of movement being made behind the scenes & Sony could be bought sooner or later. And that’s gonna be a plus for us Marvel fans who believe in one true Marvel Universe!
