  • SONY Edges MARVEL Out of Future SPIDER-MAN Movies - Report

    Sony had just released the disappointing second Garfield Spiderman movie and were in danger of heading into Fox X-Men territory, that's why they turned to Marvel in the first place.  And Disney is more than happy to put up the money for the films.  Sony's contribution to these movies has been.... superfluous.

    if i read it correctly it seems Sony just wants to keep the same deal as is. Marvel is getting greedy saying its success its based on the MCU so it should get a bigger share. if Sony is just wanting to keep the same deal then im siding with them. 
    It's 100% Disney being a giant asshole and ruining something that was great for everyone. It still blows my mind that Disney does heinous stuff with pretty much everything they touch, yet everyone still seems to love them. It's baffling how many people are mad at Sony over this.

    The deal they had was still super sweet for Disney. They were basically getting free money and creative control over a license they didn't have and have no chance of getting, and they got to throw him in their movies.
    I don't know 5% of the gross sounds pretty bad for making you a Spider Man movie that wasn't sucking wind...  The movie makes a billion dollars and Disney gets 50 million dollars for producing?  I can see why a renegotiation is necessary as Sony is bringing 0 to the table other than a well negotiated licensing agreement.

  • The Double Ds pulled out of SDCC

    You really think two people who ran the biggest TV show in history would be able to swallow their pride that much?  Lucas sure couldn't.

     Like, release a statement like "we are proud of the work we did on Game of Thrones and tried our best to give an ending that would be rewarding to the fans. However, we understand we missed the mark by the estimation of many in the audience. We have heard you, and we're going to take some time to reflect on the feedback and learn from it for our future projects."

    Stirling is stunned for a second.  When the opportunity arises:

    "What?  You buried him alive?  You DO have some explaining to do, goodsir.  Quickly now, I'm feeling a bit exposed out here, and if you don't have a very good explanation I'll be happy to let Ragnuk over there (points his rapier at the half-orc down the alley) try to loosen your lips."

    I think it would be helpful to start off each post with your character's name for easy reference.
