Sony Rumored To Be Selling Its Entertainment Division

Could Spider-Man be coming home to Marvel?

Source: Deadline

Sony CEO Kaz Hirai is stepping down from his role and he'll be succeeded by CFO Kenichiro Yoshida. As Sony stock rose 6% from the news, rumors on Wall Street say the reason behind this rise is because of speculation that Sony will attempt to sell off its entertainment division. Hirai has been an advocate for Sony's entertainment division, while Yoshida sees Sony as a technology company first and foremost.

If Sony does spinoff its entertainment division, it's possible that Disney would be interested in returning Spider-Man to the fold, just as it did with Fantastic Four and X-Men.

Sony is currently expanding its own Spider-Man cinematic universe with Venom releasing this October and Silver and Black to start shooting in March.
