Sony Says "The Door Is Closed For Now" On Disney-Sony Spider-Man Split

Sony Says “The Door Is Closed For Now” On Disney-Sony Spider-Man Split. During Variety‘s Entertainment & Technology summit, Sony Pictures chairman and CEO Tony Vinciquerra discussed the Disney-Sony Spider-Man split.

Tony expressed how “For the moment the door is closed” on Spider-Man rejoining the MCU, but also stated that “It’s a long life,” in regards to the possibility of collaborating again in the future with Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige.

“We had a great run with [Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige] on Spider-Man movies,” Vinciquerra said. “We tried to see if there’s a way to work it out….the Marvel people are terrific people, we have great respect for them, but on the other hand, we have some pretty terrific people of our own. [Feige] didn’t do all the work.”

After being questioned about Spider-Man’s future, Vinciguerra shared his belief that Sony will be fine with or without a partnership with Disney. “Spider-Man was fine before the event movies, did better with the event movies, and now that we have our own universe, he will play off the other characters as well,” Vinciquerra said. “I think we’re pretty capable of doing what we have to do here.”

Sony has expressed interest on introducing Tom Holland’s Spider-Man to the Venom franchise of Sony Pictures and is looking to place him in 5-6 films and television shows starring the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.

Reports online have stated that Disney and Sony are planning to meet up once again sometime next week, presumptuously over Spider-Man talks, but that remains to be seen at the moment. It may be time to accept that Spider-Man may not return to the MCU any time soon. (We still hope they can work it out sniffles and wipes tears)
