I'd still say Spiderman 2 and Into the Spiderverse are the best Spidey movies, but yeah, FFH is really good. That whole ending stretch right to the post-credits scene fucked with my head.
Say FFH does 1B and Sony wants to renew the deal. I think both sides will ask for things and Disney can ask for characters to go into the shared section as opposed to exclusive to Sony section. A higher priority thing that Disney will undoubtedly ask for is the removal of the fee they have to pay Sony altogether (if not reinstating the licensing fee Sony originally had to pay, which was 5% of the gross, but they'd probably settle for the 2% Fox had to pay for X-Men). Another - if they haven't already - is the annulment of the rights to transfer and possibly live action tv rights.
So the live-action TV rights would allow Spider-Man characters to get MCU shows on Disney+, right? Obviously the part about all Sony characters going in the shared section would allow for characters like Norman & Kraven to appear in other MCU films.Say FFH does 1B and Sony wants to renew the deal.

Assuming Sony agrees, then yeah Kraven will probably happen in the MCU. I do think modifying that fee structure is a deal breaker for Disney. They modified it in 2015 where they don't pay 3.5% of the movie anymore if it grosses over 750MM. Money is always a big issue, so that will be the most important one for them.
Yeah, but those are all things I'm throwing out that I would ask for if I were a Disney exec coming to the negotiation table. If I'm a Sony exec I'm asking for the characters I create in my universe to be connected to the MCU.
That might have been done in 2015. We don't know all that was changed at that time.
First timeI read this I was left wondering whether I had missed a scene in Frozen with a talking pig.The other thing we know changed was the Frozen characters. Peter Porker went from being a Frozen character to at the very least a shared one, so we know other things changed. It's possible the rights to transfer were changed as well in 2015, but it's conjecture.
With Spider-Man: Far From Home raking in cash, I find it hard to believe that Avi Arad’s malign influence will ever be felt in the MCU Spider-Man franchise. Sony would be all kinds of stupid to ever allow that. And by the way, for the love of all that is sacred, once Morbius and Venom 2 bombs, just let Kevin Feige to take care of fucking EVERYTHING.“There is an accessibility and cool factor that makes Spider-Man the greatest superhero in the world, and we embraced this by working with promotional partners to not only break records, but more importantly to create breakthrough creative executions,” said Godsick, EVP of Brand Strategy and Global Partnerships. “Each promotional partnership program delivers at least one publicity or marketing extension that gives fans a more immersive and interactive experience, or something never done before.”
Among those brands tubthumping Far From Home is returning Marvel partner Audi. They worked on Endgame with Disney displaying their Audi e-tron Sportback concept and Audi e-tron GT vehicles, while on Homecoming they showcased the Audi A8 luxury sedan. Similar to Sony’s Homecoming, Audi is both a promotional and product placement partner. Audi vehicle placement in Far From Homeincludes the all-new, electric Audi e-tron SUV and the all-new Audi A7 and Audi Q8. As part of the team-up with Far From Home, the German car manufacturer released the digital short “Science Fair,” which features Peter Parker (Tom Holland) and his best friend Ned (Jacob Batalon), who conspire to come up with a winning project and stumble upon the perfect scientific advancement, the Audi e-tron GT.
what makes you think Venom 2 will bomb?https://deadline.com/2019/07/spider-man-far-from-home-record-promo-campaign-audi-united-airlines-dr-pepper-doritos-1202643198/

Jon Watts can already be crown the best Spider-Man director of all time.
The biggest responsible for Venom’s success was China, not really the USA. Audiences in China are fickle, and while Venom lucked out there at first, I fully expect the sequel - which certainly won’t have Tom Holland as Spider-Man - to perform at the level of its critical success. There is a history for critically panned sequels to bomb, see BvS and Justice League, or even more recently, Apocalypse and Dark Phoenix. Unlike Into Spider-Verse and Far From Home, Venom was cheer luck. I expect audiences to react accordingly to that.
The thing is, JK Simmons is such a versatile actor. Look at what he’s done over the years since his iconic portrayal of this character in the Sam Raimi films. And then all of his work, Whiplash being one of the biggest ones. It can be the same actor with that somewhat similar voice inflection, but with a totally different persona. That had never been done before. We really liked the idea that it’s a new Jameson, he’s not from another dimension or multiverse or something like that. It’s a new Jameson in this world played by the same actor.
FFH has had more promotional tie-ins than any movie I've seen in a while. I mean they even sponsored an episode of Chopped Junior on the Food Network.wait what
how did it top endgame? WHY did it top endgame? isn't that a little much for a solo spidey movie? also... it's following fucking ENDGAME. Endgame is all the promo you need!
very weird. I saw way more promotion for endgame than spidey. maybe I'm looking in the wrong places.
yeah I definitely wasn't watching the food network so maybe I missed it
"While Kathleen Kennedy worked wonders relaunching this property from the abyss of the Lucas prequel trilogy and turning it into a bigger than ever all-devouring cultural force, there has to be more than some thought that it's time for new blood at the helm. The talk out there is of a September changing of the guards. We'll see."
I would love The Spot as a secondary villain along with Scorpion.
The re-release is happening here in Brazil this weekend. Just bought two tickets to watch with a friend. Can’t wait to watch Endgame and Far From Home back to back.So I decided that in trying to go see Spider-Man a second time, I might as well make a day of it and see Avengers Endgame again before it leaves theaters. So I'm sitting in the credits for Endgame, waiting for the special features. This will be the third viewing (the second I started to fall asleep, comfy chair + no sleep will do that to you), and man, this movie is really rewatchable. So many callbacks to previous movies, and so many crowd pleasing moments. There was maybe 20 people for a noon showing in the Times Square AMC in NYC. I'm definitely copping the home release and watching it multiple times.
Now, off to get some food and then go see Far From Home again!
It sounded a bit farfetched anyway. The idea that Sony would predicate their deal upon Far From Home hitting a billion is silly. They'd really want to keep him in the MCU for as long as possible because it puts Spidey in more movies, which in turn makes the Spidey movies perform better.There's a story in OT Slashfilm ran about Sony pulling out of the Spider-Man deal if FFH doesn't make a billion, but the source on this is The Ankler, who was the same guy who said Kathleen Kennedy would be FIRED right before she signed a three year contract extension:
Edit: They locked the thread, but expect this to be spread around social media a lot now that Slashfilm ran it for the clicks.
Eternals continues to add to its already STACKED cast.Variety reports Millie Bobby Brown is cast in Eternals. Interesting since Kevin Feige denied having a role for her. And she herself denied it as well, but Benedict Cumberbatch and Paul Rudd also denied their castings initially.
I guess she could be Sprite.
Well, they got plenty more to cast if that casting sheet from last November is anything to go by.
That's the rumor currently.
This is just for their production company. Don't think we'll get much Marvel stuff from this event. Other than a chat about Avengers: Endgame maybe.
