Marvel and Sony have not reached the desired agreement on the exploitation of Spider-Man, with Sony have decided to do everything by itself.
Marvel / Disney and Sony on a collision course on the agreement concerning the Spider-Man franchise (which apparently includes the exploitation of nine hundred characters altogether). Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, will no longer produce Spider-Man films, which will then come out of the MCU, due to the lack of agreement between the two companies. The character’s rights remain in Sony’s hands.
In recent months there has been a strong clash between the top management of Sony and those of Disney for the economic terms of the exploitation of the character. A clash that ended up knocking out Feige, despite the immense success of his last two films: Avengers: Endgame is the film that has grossed the most ever, while Spider-Man: Far From Home has become Sony Pictures’ biggest hit, able to overtake Skyfall.
The two multinationals simply could not find a meeting point, with Sony not wanting to give in to Disney’s proposal to divide the revenues of Spider-Man 50 and 50, given that it is currently its strongest name, both in the cinematographic field, both in the videogame field. In short, Sony wants to go it alone with Spider-Man (Disney would have taken part in the production of the films) despite the recent plots between his films and those produced by Disney.
In the videogame field the recent acquisition of Insomniac Games by Sony it can hide the company’s willingness to entrust the videogame side of the franchise to a well-established and prestigious company, capable of realizing that Marvel’s Spider-Man which is the most sold PS4 exclusive ever. Not for nothing the first PS5 demo shown behind closed doors was an optimized version of the Insomniac game.
