Its true then the nightmare of Marvel fans is going to be alive as their are talks all over Hollywood of break up between SONY and MARVEL partnership over Spiderman . Yes obviously it was clear that after the success of first two parts of our friendly neighborhood hero there would be tussle and renegotiation deals between the two movie giants but none of us suspected that MARVEL could have to say goodbye to its favourite superhero but according to some people in the business we can still see Spidey starring in some upcoming projects as it is a cash making machine for the companies .
PAST NEGOTIATION TERMS
Originally rights for the character were purchased by various production houses in 1985 which later moved to SONY for estimated amount of 10 million dollars , then from 2002 to 2007 SONY made three movies with the character which instantly made huge numbers at box office for the company then from 2012 to 2014 Peter Parker was again seen on the big screen in the rebooted version of character and this time too numbers were peaking .
In 2015 DISNEY came into picture since its collaboration with the comic book giant company has proven successful over Iron Man ,Thor , Captain America and Avengers it has new plans for the superhero . So this brought the two world biggest production houses to collaborate over the character in which distribution rights for standalone movies went to sony and use of friendly neighborhood hero in other projects went to DISNEY .
SPECULATIONS ABOUT FUTURE
Two weeks have passed since the reports of negotiations first came out but still their is no clear evidence for future as both sides are still tight lipped about their plans for the protagonist but fans around the world are sure that somehow their hero will return and this time may be with a complete different story line and direction .Both the companies know that how many hearts they would be shattering if they do not meet their expectations and they obviously don’t want that .
