Phew! That was a close one guys! We almost lost Spidey… again. But this time we weren’t sure that it could be fixed with a snap of the fingers.
It seems as if Disney and Sony have come to a custody arrangement and created a new contract for Spidey and Tom Holland. This allegation started when Tom posted a picture of him with Robert Downey, Jr. (all hail) last night and captioned it, “We did it Mr. Stark!”
New Negotiations (Allegedly)
According to Cosmic Book News, Disney now has a 6 picture deal with Tom Holland with an option for a seventh. THANK IRON MAN. It is said that there will be 4 more Spider-Man films, giving Tom two trilogies, the later focusing on Peter with the X-Men. The other two movies are said to be Avengers movies in which he is to have a bigger role. Well… he is Iron Man’s chosen successor.
With this new contract Disney still be co-financing all things Spider-Man but will not be acquiring 50% of profit like was stated before. Instead, they will take 30% and gain special digital rights to air Spider-Man on Disney+ and affiliated networks.
It is also said that Disney will help produce … get ready for this one … Live-action spin-offs of Into The Spider-Verse! We don’t know about you, but here at Pop Sundae we think that Into The Spider-Verse is one of the greatest superhero movies of all-time.
For sure, Disney is trying hard to get this new alleged deal done and signed before the D23 expo this upcoming weekend.
Please remember that nothing is completely set in(finity) stone yet. But we should expect some type of news within the next 48 hours!
If Thanos can’t even take Peter away from us, why would we ever think that this could?
