Sure Thing: Sony to Give Spider-Man Movie Rights Back to Marvel!!!

If by "sure thing" we mean "total speculation" and by "give Spider-Man rights back to Marvel" we mean "not give them back."



Source: ComicBookMovie.com

It must be a slow day for unique hits over at ComicBookMovie.com, because they're really stretching to come up with sensational headlines. In an article titled "Sony May Part With SPIDER-MAN Movie Rights; Will Peter Parker Join The MCU?" the gossip website claims that Sony, in an attempt to escape financial troubles and focus on their electronics division, is considering selling off their entertainment franchises, including Spider-Man and Resident Evil. the assertion is based on a quote by Sony chief executive Kazuo Hirai, responding to a proposal by investor Daniel Loeb that includes selling off the franchises, which reads, "Third Point’s proposal involves the way we manage a core business of the Sony group and the direction of our management. So the Sony board will give it thorough consideration before replying to Mr Loeb."

Hopefully, Sony will not fall vicitm to one of the classic blunders, the most famous of which is "never get involved in a land war in Asia," but only slightly less well known is: never follow the advice of a man named Loeb when it comes to Spider-Man-related entertainment franchises. In any case, we're very pleased that ComicBookMovie was willing to so shamelessly farm hits with this article, as it allows us to do the exact same thing while simultaneously making fun of them for it.

At this point, Marvel/Disney is making money off of Spider-Man whether the movies are in their stables or Sony's.
I don't see Disney ponying up a significant amount of money just to put Spidey in the next Avengers movie.

definitely agree.. Sure Disney could make a lot of money if the X-Men and Spider-Man franchises were back, but they don't have to spend a dime to make the movie, but all of the profits from merchandise goes back to them.

It'd be nice but not as big as say Spider-Woman.

I think Marvel might actually have the rights for Jessica Drew, seeing as how she's not really tied into the Spider-Man universe...

True, which is why she could be made into a movie and part of the Avengers in a future wave.

The costume could be interesting with the texturing that keep putting on Spidey's. Also... injokes for the comics fans. :-D

I wish Marvel could magically get the rights to Spider-man back from Sony

If Whedon could give us Wanda & Pietro from Wundagore Mountain, he could easily introduce Dr. Drew and his daughter Jessica... :spidey :smt038 :smt035
