Andrew Garfield in The Amazing Spider-Man

This deal just keeps getting better all the time. Disney has deep pockets, you’d think that Sony would ask the rival studio to pony up some cash to regain the rights to Spider-Man. Well, if you’re already thinking of a number in the billions, you might want to take it down all the way to zero.

Hours after it was announced that Disney would be “sharing” Spider-Man with Sony, details about the deal are being revealed. First up came info regarding when Spidey might make his Marvel debut, whether Andrew Garfield will still be playing the role of Spider-Man, and if the Sinister Six movie was still on or not.

Now new details have arrived, this time revealing some of the financial details of the deal and the status of The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and other spinoffs like Venom. More on all of this after the jump.

Last night the comic book world experienced a shake up when it was confirmed that Marvel and Sony made a deal to share Spider-Man. Marvel will not have full rights to the character, as Sony still retains the marketing and final creative control. However, studio head Kevin Feige will co-produce alongside Amy Pascal.

News of a “new Spider-Man” being introduced brought up a couple of questions about the current Spider-Man. The current franchise reboot, The Amazing Spider-Man, has already had two films and launched potential spinoffs. The press release used the word “new” meaning that everything we have come to know about The Amazing Spider-Man and its potential spinoffs are moot.

But a new report suggests otherwise, and that some things are changing while others will remain the same. Hit the jump to find out more.

the amazing spider-man 2 andrew garfield

As expected, we are learning more about Sony’s plans to share Spider-Man with Marvel since news of the studio’s e-mail hacking scandal broke in late November. With The Amazing Spider-Man 2 underperforming at the box office, and Sinister Six and Venom spinoff films showing no signs of development, the once lucrative franchise was beginning to look more like a lost cause. So would make sense for Sony to share the character with Marvel. It’s definitely a move that would benefit both studios. But as we all know, there was a fallout, and any plans to share the webslinger never came to be.

However, had those talks ended successfully, we would have seen Spider-Man make his big Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Captain America: Civil War. But we wouldn’t see the current Spider-Man, played by Andrew Garfield, in the sequel. According to reports, this would be a different actor playing Spider-Man, who is already an established character in the MCU. Hit the jump for more.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Trailer Header Image

There is just no end to the Spider-Man franchise rumors. Yesterday, we reported that Sony might be willing to let Marvel use the character in attempts to reestablish him as the lucrative franchise character he was while Sam Raimi was directing. While it is a long shot, it is definitely a move that would benefit both houses, but also should be a huge service to fans.

Now comes a new rumor that Sony is rebooting the franchise yet again, but that it will be a “soft reboot.” There are also murmurings of the Alex Kurtzman-directed Venom being cancelled. Hit the jump to learn more.
