    At least Jon Favreau knows the correct way to fan service, don't stuff it in my face an say "see, see this? Member this? This is cool, right?" He just puts a ton of props that I see and say "Hey, isn't that...? That's cool."
    Agreed. This is something the spin off films thus far have clumsily handled. As much as I love Rogue One, still cringe a little at the C-3P0 cameo and the run in with the ANH cantina drunks. And don't get me started with the fan service in Solo, so god awful. 
  • The Mandalorian - SPOILERS

    I liked it alot. Something I actually never truly took into consideration was pacing. I'm so used to Star Wars movies where the pace generally has to be kinetic, so the first 15 minutes or so I realized I had to adjust my brain to the "slower" pace that an television format permits. It was weird for Star Wars but real nice. I'm interested in where this goes next.

    Quite liked maybe even loved the latest trailer for Episode 9. Glad it didn't spoil any plot details like some rumors had suggested.

    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.  
    Sony was fully financing the solo Spider-Man MCU films and paying for the marketing of them. So they weren't bringing 0 to the table and 5% is more than fair. Plus under what was their deal, Disney got all the money from merchandising which obliterates the money Sony was making off Homecoming or Far From Home. And more Sony doesn't get any box office grosses from any other MCU film that features Spider-Man. So yeah sounds to me like Disney is being a little greedy here.

    I don't deny that I am concerned that if this completely falls through that Sony will muck up the live action Spider-Man films but I also don't blame them for not taking the deal even though Disney was also offering to pay 50% of the production costs of future solo entries.
