Not to mention, their other franchises like Angry Birds, Men in Black and Charlie's Angels have been flopping lately. If this continues in 2020, they'll be forced to sell Spider-Man back to Marvel permanently. Maybe some of the behind the scenes situation might involve Marvel increasing their ownership to 50% early-to-mid next year.What would be in it for Disney? Disney already has a pseudo “creative control” and Sony is begging Disney to step into its other Spider-verse movies. If Sony try’s to leave the relationship with Marvel Studios again, the fan back-lash will be even greater. They blinked this time and not doing so again, will be brutal.
Two events I am watching: 1) the success / failure of the next non-spider-man Sony Marvel production (Morbius) and 2) after these next two Spider-man movies (the Disney event and the stand-alone Spider-man movie) Tom Holand’s contract is up. Now Tom is under contract with Sony, but I could see him moving to Marvel/Disney. If the Morbius movie flops, Sony’s position weakens even further.
