Third ‘Spider-Man’ movie is a go in MCU after Sony and Disney make up
Sony's plans for their Spider-Man spinoffs continue apace. Naturally, there's been intense speculation about just what that film may be, but there's also been another interesting reaction online. A lot of fans are understandably frustrated at all the maneuvers and uncertainty, wishing Disney would just buy Spider-Man back outright. Unfortunately, that's not going to happen. It's important to begin by understanding just what's at stake here. Sony owns the exclusive film rights to Spider-Man and all his associated characters; there are also a couple of shared properties, namely Kingpin and Jessica Drew.
That means Sony's revenue streams encompass things like box office takings, network deals, promotional agreements, and distribution of the various Spider-Man movies. Sony doesn't own the merchandise rights, having sold those back to Disney in when they were struggling financially; they've learned that short-sighted decision was a mistake.
To Sony, Spider-Man is their biggest and most successful franchise. Contrast this with Disney. Sony's or so Spider-Man characters would be a nice to have, but they're hardly essential because it's not as though Marvel Studios is in danger of running out of ideas anytime soon.
The MCU's Phase 4 is already introducing a staggering number of new heroes and franchises, both popular and lesser known, ranging from Blade to Shang-Chi. This explains why Disney came close to allowing the Spider-Man deal with Sony to lapse with Iger only persuaded to reopen negotiations when Holland reminded him of the human dimension. Spider-Man is therefore more valuable to Sony than he is to Disney, and in practical terms this means Sony would naturally want more money than Disney is willing to pay.
So Disney would presumably need to pay out even more in order to fill in the gaps in their back-catalog. Under Bob Iger, Disney has developed a certain reputation for acquisitiveness. The sums are eye-watering, and they've understandably led to a general assumption Disney will buy anything they're interested in and money is no object.
The reality is very different; note that Disney only really conducts one major acquisition at a time, and there's a gap between the biggest purchases. All streaming services face exactly the same challenge; there's a critical balance between cost and content.
In general, the more content a platform has, the more popular it will be; but it costs to make that content. But, again, this means this is not a time for Disney to be paying out - unnecessarily, in their view - for Spider-Man.
There is, however, one way Disney could eventually get Spider-Man back. The film industry is contracting, and it's generally believed Sony Pictures will be unable to remain competitive in the long term; after all, this contraction was a major reason even a giant like 20th Century Fox believed it had to sell up rather than continue to make movies. There have been credible reports that a clause now exists in the Spider-Man deal that means should Sony be sold off to another studio, Spider-Man will revert to Marvel.
In this scenario, it would do so for free - and, ironically, this makes it even less likely Disney will choose to buy Spider-Man now rather than just wait it out.

Spider-Man Will Stay in the Marvel Cinematic Universe
By Brent Lang. Executive Editor of Film and Media. After briefly breaking up, Sony Pictures and Marvel have found a way to get back in the Spider-Man business together.
These past few months have been quite hectic for the web-slinging Spider-Man character as only several weeks ago was it revealed that the superhero portrayed by Tom Holland would no longer appear in the Marvel Studios cinematic universe—only to then be reinstated thanks to a new deal by Disney and Sony Pictures. Now, it seems Disney may be ready cut Sony completely out of the picture by purchasing the friendly neighborhood crime fighter in what could be a very expensive new deal. According to a new report circulating around the inter webs, it seems Disney might be ready to fork up major money to Sony for Spider-Man. But now the questions will be asked. Judging from all of the issues Disney has encountered with Sony over Spider-Man in just the past few months alone, the idea of the company wanting to purchase the superhero is not too far-fetched.
The film will star Tom Holland and is scheduled for release on July 16, He also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes, so as Sony continues to develop their own Spidey-verse you never know what surprises the future might hold. The news comes a month after Deadline first reported in August that Disney and Sony Pictures decided to part ways. The two companies were not able to reach an agreement that would have given new terms to a co-financing stake between the two studios. The terms of the new deal were not disclosed. Sony declined to comment on the terms, but said, "We have had a great collaboration over the last four years, and our mutual desire to continue was equal to that of the many fans. We are delighted to be moving forward together. According to Deadline , Disney had reportedly proposed a co-financing deal in August, meaning each company would put up half of the production costs and then split the profits. Sony had reportedly refused.
Is Spider-Man back in the MCU? What happened between Sony and Disney
When Disney Studios and Sony Pictures split up on Spider-Man fans were furious, but they were also joking around about how Disney should just buy the rights to Spider-Man back from Sony. I actually came across the new on Yahoo. While rumors have circulated before the Sony-Disney dispute of such a purchase, it was mere speculation, especially the erroneous high number that was quoted. But now the questions will be asked.
The internet was aghast this August when word broke that negotiations between Disney and Sony Pictures over future Spider-Man movies had come to an abrupt halt , effectively pulling Peter Parker out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But when the two sides finally reached an agreement last week, a not-so-secret hero brought both sides back together: Tom Holland. Marvel worked with Sony to cast Tom Holland as the new webslinger, and he endeared himself to fans instantly with his inaugural appearance in Captain America: Civil War all the way through his emotional return at the end Avengers: Endgame. Disney offered to co-finance the next Spider-Man movie , in exchange for half of the box office, to which Sony balked.
