New Rumor Says Disney Is Looking To Buy Out Spider-Man Rights For A More Reasonable Price

While it was previously speculated that Disney was looking to buy the rights to Spidey outright, it was rumored that he was going for 15 Billion. However, a new report points to a much smaller number!

Disney and Sony have had their share of press in the past several months during the Spider-Man debacle in trying to figure out a way to share the popular hero which keeps everybody happy.

Fans were pleased to know that they finally reached a deal which sees Tom Holland's version of the character in at least one more solo movie and another MCU flick beyond that. But then what?

Mikey Sutton runs the private Facebook Group Geekosity but has a proven track record with his scoops in the past. Sutton has sources at Disney which tell him that the House of Mouse is actually looking to purchase Spidey outright after all, but for a much more reasonable number than we had initially heard.

SCOOP – 10/9/19: Disney wants to buy Spider-Man. While rumors have circulated before the Sony-Disney dispute of such a purchase, it was mere speculation, especially the erroneous high number that was quoted. What I’m hearing is that Disney is looking to offer in the range of $4 to $5 billion for Spider-Man. But now the questions will be asked.


Even 5 billion would be a mere third of the massive 15 billion that it was previously reported Sony would be asking for. While Sutton states that he only has heard from the Disney side, 5 billion is an enticing offer, especially as it is more than Disney paid for Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and the rest. 

Marvel’s most well-known hero, and with Iron Man and Captain America gone, they need an anchor in the MCU.


What do you think of Disney potentially buying out the rights? Be sure to let us know in the comments and if you haven't seen it yet, check out the trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home below!
