Sony’s cooperation with Marvel is over for the moment due to profit-sharing dispute

Marvel Studios has pulled out of producing future Spider-Man movies, due to disputes between Sony. Disney owned Marvel Studios’s President announced to break up after dispute over revenue sharing Sony.

This means that Spider-Man’s appearances in Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe films as well as crossovers from characters like Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man or Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury in future Spider-Man films could end with Spider-Man: Far From Home, which released earlier this summer.

Sony still owns the rights to the webman.




Disney reportedly asked that future Spider-Man films be 50 / 50 coproductions between Disney and Sony, instead of the current deal, which is said to give Marvel (and Disney) 5 percent of gross box-office revenue. Sony apparently disagreed, and that is why the two studios will go separate ways.

The flick Spider-Man: Far From Home made over $1 billion at the box office, which translates to more than $50 million for Disney which is nowhere close to the money it brought to Sony.

Marvel Studios and Sony first agreed on a deal over Spider-Man in 2015, which would allow for the character to appear in crossover Marvel films, even though Sony maintained the rights to the character and was responsible for financing, distributing, and “final creative control.”
