Sony Still Moving Ahead With SINISTER SIX, VENOM, And More...Without Kevin Feige's Involvement

Have we all started getting prematurely excited about the deal between Marvel and Sony ? Some fascinating new details have now emerged about the financial aspect of their arrangement, while all of the previously announced spinoffs are still expected to happen, minus Kevin Feige!

So, just how much did getting Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War and (probably) Avengers: Infinity War cost Marvel Studios? Nothing. Sony aren't getting paid for loaning him out either, and there are also no plans for Marvel to receive a cut of the box office from any future Spider-Man films. Similarly, Sony won't be compensated with a percentage of the revenue Disney makes from their releases featuring the wall-crawler either. Instead, both studios are relying on the box office boost that the character's involvement with the Marvel Cinematic Universe will provide them. 

Kevin Feige meanwhile also isn't being paid for helping to revive the franchise for Sony according to Variety's report. They too report that a younger Peter Parker is being looked for, and that he WILL indeed return to high school. Here's the worrying part though. "The studio is still moving forward with the Spider-Man villain-centric “Sinister Six,” and “Venom” spinoff, as well as a film that features female characters in the “Spider-Man” universe. “The Amazing Spider-Man 3″ has been cancelled. While Marvel’s Feige is involved with Sony’s new “Spider-Man” films, he currently is not expected to be creatively involved with the spinoffs, sources say." Should we be worried?

It's hard to imagine Sony souring their relationship with Marvel by releasing a string of mediocre spinoffs, and how can Feige NOT be involved with them when he's helping to steer the 2017 Spider-Man movie? They'll take place in the same world after all, but if Sony do suddenly decide to release a Sinister Six movie without Spidey and a Venom movie from the chump who wrote The Amazing Spider-Man 2, perhaps we're getting a bit too excited too soon about this deal? Let's hope not!
