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.

Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben and Sally Field as Aunt May

Sony’s Spider-Man universe sounded like a good idea at first, but the latest rumor makes it look as though they are blindly throwing darts at a board. With each new rumor to pop up, their Spider-Man universe feels more like a desperate ploy to stay in competition with their rivals, DIsney’s Marvel Studios and Warner Bros.’ DC Universe, and more of a reason to keep a tight hold of a once lucrative franchise. We are getting a Sinister Six film sooner than expected, which could work given that the tone of the film will be like that of the Dirty Dozen. There are also rumors of an all-female Spider-Man character team up. Then there is Venom, but the status of that film is still up in the air.

With Sinister Six and The Amazing Spider-Man 3 are pretty much locks, but still far from ready to start filming, a new rumor has emerged to make it look as though Sony will do just about anything to keep the Spider-Man character in their grasp. According to a new rumor, the studio is interested in a movie centered around Spidey’s Aunt May.
