Sony leases out Spider-Man to Marvel for upcoming movie Sony has leased out the rights to Spider-Man to Disney (Marvel), meaning Marvel will put out the next film while Sony keeps the rights to the popular comic hero.
Allegedly, Marvel has been offering billions to get Spider-Man back, but Sony is still not willing to sell. Over time, the franchise has brought in $4 billion in revenue, making it one of the biggest blockbuster series in movie history.

Marvel and Sony have not exchanged any money for the latest deal, by Marvel is still likely to make a mint due to owning the merchandising rights to Spider-Man.

The upcoming standalone Spider-Man film will hit theaters on July 28th, 2017, and Andrew Garfield will be replaced after playing Spidey in the last two "Amazing Spider-Man" films.

First Toby McGuire film was pretty good, it goes down hill after that SPM>AM>SPM2>AM2>SPM3.

Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Lets renegotiate them.
