After a brief and awkward divorce, Disney and Sony have once again agreed to return the Spider-Man by Tom Holland in the Marvel Cinematic Universe of Marvel Studios.
As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, executives Alan Horn and Tom Rothman have admitted that the cry of protest raised on social media thanks to the fans and artistic figures involved (such as the many MCU actors who spoke about the issue on own Twitter or Instagram pages) played a key role in bringing the two companies back to the negotiating table .
” The fan base, which is important to all of us, really seemed to be linked to what Tom and his team had done together with our Marvel Studios, ” explained Horn. ” The public likes the fact that Marvel Cinematic Universe and Kevin Feige were involved in the two Spider-Man films, and after hearing that feedback from all over the world suggested we return to join forces, we thought that probably would have been a good idea. “
While Sony has been virtually pilloried out of trying to continue the Spider-Man stories out of the creative control of Marvel Studios, Disney has been called greedy for the demand for more advanced profits, and both companies soon found each other in his hands a literal nightmare of public relations.
Rothman of Sony added: ” I agree with my illustrious colleague, this was the fateful victory for all the parties involved. A victory for Sony, a victory for Disney, a victory for the fans. The only thing that I would say is that the cycles of news and the pace of negotiations do not necessarily overlap, and this is, in Shakespeare’s words, devotion to being devotedly wished for. in advance he forced his hand. “
