Due to contractual obligations between Sony and Marvel, it is currently questionable
whether Spider Man FFH can and will continue to be part of the MCU despite the sensational
success of Spider Man. Now The well-informed reporter Richard Rushfield brings some light
into the darkness with his new newsletter The Ankler. According to the current information,
the agreement between Sony and Marvel includes that Marvel will have creative control and
Sony financial control over the solo films featuring Tom Holland. According to Rushfield, the
existing contract between the two megacorporations stipulates that if the $1 billion mark is
cracked, the contract will automatically be extended for a third film. If this were not the
case, Sony would have full control over Spider Man and Peter Parker would no longer be
part of the MCU.
So if you believe this information from Rushfield, the chances of extending the contract are
not so bad for Marvel. To reach the 1 billion dollar mark, Spider Man FFH needs only a little
over 300 million US dollars. In view of the fact that the film has only been shown in cinemas
for a week, it is more than likely that they will loosely pass the one billion dollar mark.
We are curious to see how quickly this will happen and look forward to further
announcements about the future of Spider Man.
