Spider-Man In Trouble At Marvel; Needs To Hit A Billion Dollars

Unfortunately certain Marvel properties haven't been so lucky - mostly due to rights issues which kept them from being properly developed by Disney.

After the curtain fell on Spider-Man: Far From Home, you probably remembered two scenes more than any, simply because of their proximity to the ending and how big their impact will be for the future.

"The original Sony/Marvel/Spidey deal to co-produce these movies stipulated that if this Spidey cleared a billion, Marvel would get to oversee a third", Richard Rushfield writes. According to him, his source on the matter is "someone very important and knowledgable".

Luckily, and rather obviously, the film should have no problem crossing that threshold.

While the news may be a bit worrisome for Feige's MCU fans, the good news is that Spider-Man: Far From Home has already passed a half billion dollars at the box office and is now closing in on $600 million after only being in release for seven days or so.

Tom Holland made his MCU debut in Captain America: Civil War and after making his solo movie debut in Spider-Man: Homecoming he returned in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame in order to complete the Infinity Saga.

Sony has several solo superhero movies featuring characters from the Spider-Man roster including Morbius, Nightwatch and Kraven the Hunter, so after this deal runs out the SCU might come to fruition.

In an interview with the New York Times, Spider-Man: Far From Home writers Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers revealed that while it was always part of the plan to reveal Spider-Man's identity, the manner in which it happens was initially very different. How do you feel about Spider-Man continuing under the supervision of Marvel and Disney? Let us know in the comments section down below!
