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.

If Spider-Man Is So Amazing, Why Isn't He In 'The Avengers'?


Andrew Garfield Spider Man

Marvel Comics characters are all over cinema screens this year, from Captain America to SPIDER-MAN to the forthcoming X-Men and Guardians of the Galaxy. But after The Avengers united several characters, fans are wondering why there isn't more crossover. For example, why isn't Spider-man in the Avengers?

The Amazing Spider-ManAndrew Garfield as 'The Amazing Spider-Man'

The answer is pretty boring: it's down to business. Disney owns the Avengers and the Guardians (and Marvel itself), but Sony owns the rights to Spider-man and the Fantastic Four, while Fox owns the X-men.

Andrew Garfield Spider Man Stan Lee Emma Stone

He's The Amazing SPIDER-MAN, and he's very much Jewish - this according to the man that plays the superhero in the latest franchise, Andrew Garfield. The British-American actor, who was brought up Jewish, suggests that Spidey's neuroses are a sure-fire sign that the character is culturally Jewish.

"Spider-man is neurotic. Peter Parker is not a simple dude. He can't just switch off," Garfield told Time Out. "He never feels like he's doing enough. And Peter suffers from self-doubt. He ums and ahs about his future because he's neurotic. He's Jewish. It's a defining feature." Whether or not Spider-Man is of Jewish religion has been the subject of feverish internet speculation for years, but it seems Garfield, 30,has already made up his mind.
