Marvel fans have been heartbroken since Marvel and Sony had their recent fallout on Spider-Man. But now it seems that there may be something to look forward to. In a Facebook post that has since been deleted, it was said that Disney and Sony were still in talks and could soon reach a new agreement. Under their previous agreements, Marvel Studios CEO Kevin Feige will continue to provide his production capabilities for this upcoming Spider-Man movie and Disney will retain the merchandising rights to the character (excluding the video game rights that have proven to be very profitable for Sony Interactive with the launch of a highly popular Playstation 4 game). «For now, the door is closed,» Vinciquerra says, before clarifying that there is «no bad will» between Sony and Marvel and suggesting that there could be a possible solution in the future.

Marvel and Sony will co-produce the film for #SpiderMan 3 and keep Tom Holland in the MCU! #Marvel #Sony pic.twitter.com/tJ8rr13tcW In the post, Sutton wrote, «It looks positive. I hear from sources within Sony and Disney that the two sides could more or less reach a new agreement in a week. Contract negotiations are ongoing. I warn that the smallest differences in the economy could lead to this being presented again. But right now, they seem to be floating in the right direction. Tom Holland recently received strict instructions at a convention not to talk about the Sony-Disney dispute, as he could end up spoiling sensitive information. But somehow, everything has changed. On Friday, the companies announced that Marvel and Feige will produce the third film in the Spider-Man: Homecoming series, which will be released in 2021.
The third film in the «Homecoming» series will be made in 2021. The news is a dramatic reversal for Sony and Disney, who had failed to reach an agreement on the character`s future in the MCU. Producer Amy Pascal added: «It`s great. Peter Parker`s story took a dramatic turn in Far From Home and I couldn`t be happier that we were all working together when we see where his journey goes. This partnership has been a success for the studios, the franchise and the fans and I`m thrilled that it will continue. There always seems to be hope for Spider-Man to continue to be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The post also explained that sources from within had revealed that if all went well, the new deal would be finalized by next week. The companies negotiated until late Thursday night. In exchange for Feige`s work on the films, Marvel and Disney will receive about 25% of the profits from the next film. Spider-Man will also appear in a future Marvel movie, Variety reports.
Fans responded with quotes from Avengers: Endgame like, «It works better. because I don`t know what I`m going to do if I don`t» and even «Whatever it takes.» .
