Sony & MARVEL are friends again; Spider-Man is back in the MCU

If you search their website (I posted a screen cap) you'll see them claiming live action remakes of Black Cauldron and Treasure Planet.
They aren’t the only one claiming a Black Cauldron remake. Disney reacquired the rights to the entire Chronicles of Prydain 3 years ago and are supposedly making it into a Disney+ series. Treasure Planet’s remake has also been reported in many places.

And it’s not hard to believe that Disney is developing more live action remakes on all their other films. Although I know nothing about the quality or accuracy of that website, criticizing them for this seems like overkill.

I've seen Yahoo! and Fox News both share stories about Robert Downey Jr. returning to the MCU based on their made up news. If I feel they had even an ounce of legitimacy I wouldn't criticize them. Here's some examples relating to this deal.

During the negotiation:

As it stands, Spider-Man is currently out of the MCU and back with Sony. However, WGTC has heard from our sources – the same ones who confirmed those Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk TV series before their official reveal at D23 – that both Disney and Sony are working on re-opening negotiations to try and map out a new deal next week. Before Tom Holland’s web-slinger does return to the MCU, though, Sony apparently has a few requests for Marvel.

From what we understand, Sony has a couple of stipulations they want Kevin Feige and co. to agree to before they hand Spidey back. To begin with, they want Holland in Venom 2 or 3. Not only that, but they’re also asking that Disney lets them use certain MCU characters in their own Marvel-related movies. Specifically, our sources say that Sony has eyes on Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury and Sam Wilson’s Captain America, as played by Anthony Mackie.

Kevin Feige doesn't want Captain America and Nick Fury running around the Sony universe.

What about after this deal?

Sources say that it’s expected that the studios will be able to work out a new arrangement in a few years but one of the things Sony is hoping to get from Marvel is access to Deadpool and the X-Men. To what extent they want these characters is unclear, but from what we’re told, they’d like permission to use them in at least some capacity in their own Marvel films. That doesn’t necessarily mean we’ll be getting a Wolverine and Venom crossover or anything like that, but the studio would definitely want some sort of access to the mutants and they may request that from Disney if the Mouse House hopes to strike a new deal.

So they made a claim that's never likely to come true, but then hedge their bets by say "at least some capacity"

"Benedict Cumberbatch is putting on the cloak of levitation and will reprise Marvel supernatural hero Doctor Strange for the latest Spider-Man movie installment, starring Tom Holland and being made by Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures.

The move puts Cumberbatch in the mentor role that was previously occupied by Robert Downey Jr., who played Tony Stark/Iron Man in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and by Samuel L. Jackson in Spider-Man: Far From Home, the latter reprising Nick Fury. The role gives Holland a chance to play opposite seasoned actors, gives Peter Parker a father figure and gives the movies extra star power while also tying them to the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe."

Sounds like more hinting of a multiverse which revolves around Wanda, Doctor Strange, and Spider-Man (who already had his own animated multi-verse movie).
