Movies Spider-Man Far From Home Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Assuming the rumor is correct, then yes it should be the same deal moving forward for Disney/Sony. Without looking at the contract though, no one can be entirely sure.

I mostly agree with you, but I imagine it depends greatly on the deal they have with Disney.

 

Far From Home will end up grossing maybe $200M more than Venom, which was terrible and didn't have the advantage of being in the MCU, and Far From Home cost $60M more to make. I have no clue what kind of profit share deal they have, if any, but it's not that hard to imagine Sony looking at that and thinking "it can't be that hard to make another live action Spider-man movie." Then again, with Venom making money, Spider-Verse likely kicking off a franchise of its own (though to relatively poor world wide numbers), and an MCU live action Spider-man, it does seem like Sony is currently getting all they can from this license.

Does Venom make as much money without the popularity of the MCU movies? I think a lot of people thought it was part of the MCU and would feature an appearance from Tom Holland's Spiderman. Pulling Spidey from the MCU would be a mistake i think for Sony... there's no reason for them to do so because with Venom and Spiderverse, they have two potential franchises going forward.

The popularity of the MCU movies might have played some part, but it was hardly the reason for the insane box office take. I'm still stunned by how much it made. It was a fun movie, despite how insanely flawed it was.

This is the same company that had all of their files hacked in 2014 because the password for their encrypted files was "password".

Sony is so incompetent it took my sales rep there over a year to get his Sony email account back after the hack.

 

Don't put a single thing past them.

I think the rumored contract is that they’ve fulfilled his appearances in non-spiderman movies and still has one more standalone film.

I bet his password was upgraded from “password” to “Password1”.

It took a while to get going, but once it came together, I really enjoyed it!

 

Now time to read what y'all wrote because I watched the post-credits scene and my friend couldn't help me crack what I saw.

Yeah! There's that whole joke about him being head of security and his password is password and Hogan's like, "Yeah, I'm not proud of it!"
