Spider-Man Deal not Dead :
We have new reports that Spider-man deal is not dead yet. Sony chief Tony Vinciquerra recently said that for the moment the door is closed about Spider–Man deal. But Now it’s being reported that is not exactly true and that those may be lies.
According to Mikey Sutton, who recently put out that Wolverine vs Hulk MCU rumor. We have already talked about him in our previous post. He explained that Sony is using some business tactics.

Sony is using “The Takeaway” tactics. Which means that Sony is putting pressure on Disney through social media. Sony want Disney to accept an inferior deal.
Sutton also explains that same tactics were used prior to the Disney Fox deal going through. We all know that there were rumours that Disney-Fox deal is dead.
The Sony chief also said that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is too busy to work on Spider-Man, which Sutton also claims is a lie and is just another business tactic to get Disney to sign to the inferior deal.
It’s further claimed that Sony is doing this as a PR stunt in order to cover themselves if the deal does not go through (which makes sense as Spider-Man would be back with them and they don’t want to look like the “bad” guys).
Sutton goes on to emphasize that the Sony chief said “for the moment,” which means talks are still taking place and that nothing has changed.
Sony Playing Dirty Tricks :
Here is what he posted on Facebook :
There was a group of people that totally blasted Mikey Sutton. As he said that Disney-Fox deal wasn’t dead while rest of the sites were saying else. We all know at the end his Intel Proved to be right.
We aren’t completely saying that Sutton is right. Maybe his remarks could be looked at as being pro-Disney and Marvel, with Disney hoping to get some sort of leverage up on Sony to make Sony look bad.
While that could be true, I’m tending to side more with what Sutton has to say and do agree that Disney and Sony are still at the table over keeping Spider-Man a part of the MCU. Following the initial report from a few weeks ago, various Hollywood trades stated talks were dead while others said they were ongoing, so essentially, we see a little game is being played.
Rumors have also offered that if Spider-Man stays in the MCU. Then Sony wants Spidey in the Venom and other Sony’s Marvel movie also.
Regarding the “inferior deal,” reportedly, Disney wants a 50/50 split with Sony over Spider-Man. Which would include more Spidey movies as well as bringing in the Spider-Man-related characters.
Disney wanted other Marvel character such as Venom, into the MCU. However, unfortunately Sony have turned down that offer.
Sony wanted to keep the original deal with Disney that saw Marvel produce Spider-Man within the MCU. With Disney only getting a small amount of the box office, but keep the full merchandising rights.
Disney didn’t seem to like the original deal, which as a results led the talks falling through the current situation.
