Sony Pictures may be being bought over…this would send Spidey back home to Marvel/Disney

Just as we are all gathering ourselves up from the whole Spider-man in the MCU ordeal, it looks like there’s possibly another possible dip in this rollercoaster yet.

While there’s constantly reports that the deal may be back on and that Sony and Marvel/Disney are still thrashing it out, now a new report is that they aren’t.

Because they may not need to.

A new tweet (below) from Lords of The Long Box had this to say: No update on The Sony deal, its at a stalemate. Disney is in no hurry to make a deal now that they know Apple, Amazon and maybe Netflix is interested in buying Sony Pictures for the streaming content. Disney can get Spider-man back for free so why pay?

Em, what?

So, basically, the terms of Sony’s Spider-man deal/ownership is that should anyone buy Sony Pictures, then Spider-man and all related characters automatically – you guessed it – revert back to Marvel/Disney.

Therefore, if this is true – and I’d say it’s a longshot but there could be something to it for sure, remember how long the MArvel getting the X-Men rumours went back before it finally happened? – then all the overlords are Disney need to do is sit back, relax and wait for Spidery’s, em, homecoming.

So, don’t hold your breath, but this is certainly worth watching because if there’s anything beyond fans’ wish fulfilment to this then it may move fast.

Another day, another dip in the rollercoater. Hold on tight and let me know your thoughts.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
