What The Marvel-Sony Spider-Man Deal Means


Spider Man Sony Andrew Garfield

The implications of Sony and Marvel’s SPIDER-MAN deal, which was announced on Monday, are now becoming clearer.

Spider-Man will be included in an upcoming Marvel title for the first time in nearly two decades, and that film is reported to be next year’s Captain America: Civil War.

Variety reported that, in essence, the deal will work out cheaply for both parties. Effectively, neither studio will receive a cut from the proceeds of the other studio’s useage of the Spiderman character in future movies. Without the deal, Disney (which owns Marvel) would have to part with millions in order to use him.

Playstation 4

It’s a fresh and exciting move from Sony, who marketed their next generation console, which has been a selling sensation, on its gaming capabilities. This was in contrast to Microsoft, who billed the Xbox One as an all-purpose entertainment machine. Suffice to say, Sony won the PR battle in the run up to both consoles being released, and now they’re exploiting the other capabilities of the PS4.
