Marvel Studios and Sony 'Spider-Man' Negotiations Still On The Table

Last night an email leaked at the hands of a hacking group known as the #GOP that revealed some new information of Sony Pictures Spider-Man franchise. Apparently towards the end of October Sony and Disney were discussing a possibility that would allow Spider-Man to appear in Captain America: Civil War but Sony would keep creative control in a new MCU trilogy of the character. So obviously it sounded like talks broke down given that Marvel obviously would like creative control in their Marvel universe and not the other way around.

Well, now Latino-Review has gotten a little bit more information on this back and forth negotiations between the two company's. Apparently Sony Japan is furious at this email leak scandal and the leadership over at their subsidiary Sony Pictures. That they are actually going to keep Marvel negotiations on the table and may force Sony Pictures to make a deal with Marvel so they can get financing and distribution but Marvel gets creative control. A 60/40 split of the web slinger. Sony Japan are the ones who flip the bill when it comes to the salary's of the Sony executives:
"Sony Japan thinks the Marvel deal for Spider-Man is still on the table and they want to renegotiate as a return to quality, the 60/40 split is can be negotiated and Sony Entertainment’s October hard-line stance of wanting creative control is now mostly moot in the eyes of the higher-ups."
 It's entirely possible this renegotiation can happen as early as next month when Sony holds a "Spidey Summit" to figure out what they will do with their character and the spin-odds that hang in the balance.This would explain why we have heard next to nothing on the next film in the franchise Sinister Six because Sony may actually be holding off to figure everything else out. It's also entirely possible Marvel may take Sinister Six director Drew Goddard (Who worked on Daredevil for Marvel) and bring him on to direct the new Spider-Man films set within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Unfortunately, it's unlikely Marvel would bring star Andrew Garfield back in the new trilogy even though everyone agrees he is the best Peter Parker we have seen on screen.

If Marvel does by some miracle get Spider-Man back don't expect to see him before Avengers: Infinity War. At least nothing more than a cool cameo...Lest we forget a couple months ago Badass Digest got word that Sinister Six may actually be a soft reboot of the character teaming up with the Sinister Six like The Dirty Dozen but with a new actor. Marvel could take this concept for their Spider-Man instead of once again doing his origin story.

Stay tuned as this story develops....
