Marvel Wanted Spider-Man For Captain America 3...

But Sony said no.

 

In the treasure trove of info that are the leaked Sony Pictures emails, one conversation has been discovered that would blow Marvel comics fans' minds — the fact that Sony and Marvel was indeed discussing a way for the Sony-owned Spider-Man to appear in Marvel Studios cinematic universe. That's the good news.

The bad news is, of course, Sony decided not to let Spidey be a part of Captain America: Civil War, despite the fact that Spider-Man plays a large role in the original comic storyline and Sony's Spider-Man franchise could desperately use the kind of reinvigoration joining the MCU might provide. According to the Wall Street Journal, the discussions went all the way to the top of both companies, Walt Disney's Bob Iger and Sony's Kaz Hirai, before Sony decided no go.

That's a shame, but on the plus side the emails reveal that Sony is also working on an animated Spider-Man film to be produced by The Lego Movie's Chris Miller and Phil Lord, which sounds potentially very awesome indeed. Between this and the aforementioned 21 Jump Street/Men in Black crossover, it sounds like Sony should just give these two guys the checkbook and ask them if they wouldn't mind making all their movies.

sucks... because Spidey is a huge part of Civil War

with 100+ million in expected damages from the hack Sony might just reconsider

It turns out that Sony was trying to do the Steve Jobs biopic penned by Aaron Sorkin.  When the deal was falling apart, they desperately tried to get TOM FUCKING CRUISE to sign on for the role, but Cruise declined and the deal fell apart.  The movie is now being made by another studio, and it looks like Michael Fassbender is getting the role.

These hacks are awesome.

Sony's hackers leaked that sony IS going to let marvel have spiderman back in the avengers and captain america.. who's right here?

Sony should die Phone Post 3.0

Sony is the innovative leader of all companies. Apple copied them. Apple founder Steve Jobs started Pixar. Pixar was bought by Disney who then promoted all of Pixar's top talents to high positions within Disney. With the Pixar run Disney, Marvel got bought up and folded into Disney. And now Disney wants to partner with Sony. This trail shows once again how Sony innovates and Apple/Disney copies.

because the source in the OP (WSJ) says exactly the opposite.

New reports are saying that Sony Japan ordered their American counterparts back to the table.

https://www.nerdist.com/2014/12/new-details-say-a-marvel-cinematic-universe-spider-man-is-still-possible/

Last night, news broke that among the sea of leaked Sony Pictures emails obtained and released by hackers over the last few days were communications between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures over the possibility of bringing New York’s famed webslinger to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, talks eventually broke down and Sony ended up going back to the drawing board with the character, a drawing board that apparently includes a potential animated film from the 22 Jump Street duo, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. But, a new report from Latino-Review seems to indicate things have swung back in fans’ favor.

Here’s the condensed version: following lengthy negotiations that eventually concluded with Sony walking away from what would have been a “co-production deal where Marvel and Sony would split future Spider-Man film costs 60/40 (Marvel paying the larger part) while MARVEL retained control of the Spider-Man creative property with the potential to have him cross-over into Marvel’s Phase films, like an appearance in Captain America: Civil War.” Well, it turns out not everyone at the overall Sony corporation is thrilled to hear about this news.

The report explains Sony Japan has apparently stepped in to get its subsidiary back at the negotiating table with Marvel. The reason? Quality. Latino-Review’s reporter, Da7e, indicates Sony isn’t happy with the current state of the Spider-Man franchise, and it views a partnership with Marvel as the best way to bring the series back to its Sam Raimi glory. “Sony Entertainment’s October hard-line stance of wanting creative control is now mostly moot in the eyes of the higher-ups,” said Da7e.

And with that, it appears Spider-Man’s chances of a Marvel reunion with all his Avengers buddies just got a second wind. However, as we’ve learned time and time again from Hollywood, nothing’s official until it’s official, and even then it’s no guarantee.

Bull shit if spidey isn't in civil war.

Would be awesome if they get spidey into the marvel/avengers movies Phone Post 3.0

Daredevil is going to come out next year. I expect with it being his 50th anniversary, it's going to tie in to some big event in his comics.

I haven't heard anything on the Punisher.
