In 2019, it was also reported that a call from Tom Holland to Disney CEO Bob Iger saved Spider-Man. Tom Holland`s Spider-Man has become a great weapon for the MCU since its debut in The Marvel Movies, but the rights to the character are still held by Sony. Now the two production giants have reached a new agreement. Read more for more details: Disney understands the powers to earn money from Spider-Man, while Sony is aware that it is not able to compete with the mouse at the moment. A new deal is expected to appeal to many Marvel fans. In February 2015, Disney, Marvel Studios and Sony announced a Spider-Man movie rights-sharing agreement, which led to the introduction of a new Iteration of Spider-Man and its integration into the Marvel Cinematic universe. The deal allowed Sony Pictures to continue to own, finance, distribute and have final creative control of spider-man films solo, with Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures distributing the films with its other releases. Tom Holland portrays this version of Spider-Man, which has appeared in five films, from Captain America: Civil War (2016) to Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019). In September 2019, Disney and Sony announced a new deal for Holland`s version to make at least two more appearances: in another solo film and another team film. It is reported that Sony and Marvel will settle the dispute over Spider-Man. Tom Holland`s Spider-Man is one of the most popular characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Spider-Man Holland has moved away from the MCU for some reason, but due to the overwhelming resonance of fans and the tendency of #Savespiderman, the two production giants have redesigned their plans for the characters.
According to the agreements they made, Marvel CEO Kevin Feige will continue to give his production skills to this future Spider-Man movie and Disney will retain the merchandising rights to the character (obviously without video game rights that proved very profitable for Sony Interactive with the launch of a very popular Playstation 4 game). When James Cameron agreed to do Spider-Man, Carolco lawyers simply used his previous Terminator 2 contract as a model. A clause in the agreement gave Cameron the right to decide on film and advertising credits. Show-business trade items and ads did not mention Golan, who has yet to actively compile the elements for the film.  In 1993, Golan complained publicly and eventually filed a lawsuit against Carolco for refusing his contractual secured loan as a producer. On the other hand, Cameron had the contractual right to decide on credit.  Finally, Carolco sued Viacom and Columbia to reclaim the broadcast and home video rights and counter the two studios.  20th Century Fox, although not involved in the litigation, denied Cameron`s involvement and stated that he had used his merits as a director only once in connection with another contract. In 1996, Carolco, 21st Century and Marvel went bankrupt. Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures have finally reached a new deal to keep Spider-Man in the MCU, and this is very different from their latest one.
