Spider-Man is OUT of The MCU

Some thought it was too good to be true, and that may have turned out to be the case. Sony and Disney/Marvel were unable to close a deal to keep Spider-Man in the current Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Deadline reports that meetings between the two entertainment giants to co-finance and co-produce more Spider-Man films ended with no agreement. This takes Disney and Marvel’s Kevin Feige out of the picture when it comes to any future plans with Spidey.

The split comes at a very odd time. Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame recently became the highest-grossing movie of all time, while Spider-Man: Far From Home became the highest-grossing Spider-Flick, as well as the highest-grossing Sony movie ever made.

According to Deadline, Disney proposed a 50/50 deal that would have seen both companies split the costs and earnings, and presumably would include movies involving Venom, Carnage, Miles Morales, and others. Sony refused and made a counter-offer that Disney turned down.

What this means for the future remains to be seen. But for the time being, everybody’s friendly neighborhood Spider-Man will be swinging solo unless immediate changes happen. The sequel to Venom is in production, and actor Tom Holland is attached to at least two additional films. It is only a matter of time before Venom and Spidey cross paths onscreen. Will Sony keep the billion-dollar income without the rest of the Marvel MCU attached? We may not have to wait too long to find out.

Geekville Radio: Iron Fist Review

Here are the show notes for this week’s show, the first for Spring 2017!

Batman filming delayed until next year. DC may fill the slot with another movie.

Sony has announced plans for a Venom movie. But will it be tied to The MCU?

Deborah Ann Woll confirms she will appear in The Punisher

The middle of the show is a review of Kong: Skull Island. While the review is lengthy, it is very light on spoilers. So if you’re still on the fence about seeing the movie, you can listen without too much getting revealed.

Next up is a very thorough and spoiler-filled review of Iron Fist. Does it hold up to the rest of the Marvel Netflix series? And what’s all the hubbub about anyway? The critically panned show still scored well with viewers.

The final segment of the show is dedicated to remembering the late great Chuck Berry, who passed away this week at the age of 90.
