Sony finances it and pays for the marketing budget. I can see why they don't want to then give 50% of the box office to Disney in addition to the fact they already give them all the Merchasding rights. In the end, Sony own the property too.

Re: Movie news, trivia and other snippets

sounds like a fair deal and it is a shame Disney are screwing Marvel over because of it. They must make billions back from merchandising so it is only fair that Sony make something from such a successful and lucrative film as well.

Re: Movie news, trivia and other snippets

Not to mention Sony don't see anything from Spiderman being in things like Infinity War, Disney get to use him in those films as part of the deal too.

Re: Movie news, trivia and other snippets

exactly, this just stinks of Disney being too greedy and now that they have lost the deal they are now going to lose out and be worse off than they were before.

Re: Movie news, trivia and other snippets

I think Marvel/Disney only getting 5% of the box office for Spidey is a poor show though. I don't think 50% is a fair amount either. Maybe 25-30%

Re: Movie news, trivia and other snippets

They will make hundreds of millions in merchandising though which is equivalent to what Sony makes in boxoffice revenue so it is a balanced and fair deal.

Disney announced at the D23 Expo on Saturday that it has set May 6, 2022, as the release date for Black Panther 2. Director Ryan Coolger, who returns to helm and write the sequel to the No. 4-grossing film of all time in North America, revealed the news onstage at the Anaheim Convention Center alongside Marvel’s Kevin Feige.
A bit far ahead I know but...

Except Disney would have been funding 50% of the finance and marketing costs as well.

they didn't. You can read all the info here. I would have copied and pasted but every time you scroll to the bottom of the page a ****ing video loads and there isn't anything you can do about it. It even does it on my phone and it really pisses me off.

Quote:
Producer Amy Pascal, who at the time was the head of Sony Pictures, was able to strike an unprecedented deal with Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige to share the character of Spider-Man. After lengthy discussions, they agreed to move ahead with a new reboot, although this time things would be different. Spider-Man: Homecoming is still financed and distributed by Sony Pictures (i.e. they pay for 100% of it), and Sony gets the box office, but Marvel Studios produced the film and served as the “creative lead.” That means Feige and the Marvel Studios braintrust helped pick the director and cast, helped craft the film’s tone and style, and made sure to bring something fresh and new to character that audiences are already very familiar with. In short, they made a Marvel Studios Spider-Man movie.

So what does Marvel Studios get in return out of this deal? Besides getting to play with a toy they’ve been eyeing for a very long time now, they get to use Tom Holland’s Peter Parker in a set number of MCU movies (five in total, per this initial agreement, including Homecoming and its sequel). That means that Spider-Man: Homecoming takes place within the same Marvel Cinematic Universe as Doctor Strange and Iron Man, and Holland’s Peter Parker—after making his debut in Captain America: Civil War—is appearing alongside folks like Tony Stark and Black Widow in Avengers: Infinity War and the untitled Avengers 4.

While Marvel Studios only gets 5% of the first dollar box office gross from Spider-Man: Homecoming and its sequel, they do still own the merchandising rights to Spider-Man. Moreover, ensuring Spider-Man: Homecoming is a good movie helps the MCU brand—if folks like this Peter Parker, they’re going to want to see him in Infinity War and whatever other MCU movies he's in.
