Marvel’s Kevin Feige on Spider-Man McU split: “It was never meant to last forever”

Marvel fans were left reeling this past week with the news that talks had broken down between Sony and Disney with regards to extending their partnership over the cinematic rights to Spider-Man – a deal which has seen the web-slinger rebooted into the Marvel Cinematic Universe to enormous success and culminating with Sony’s most successful movie ever Spider-Man: Far From Home.

While we cling on to some hope that a deal could still be reached (despite the studio blame game already beginning), Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has offered his first public comments on the situation during a chat with Deadline at the D23 Expo, saying that “it was never meant to last forever” and he is simply glad that they got to include the wall-crawler in their universe at all.

“I’m feeling about Spider-Man gratitude and joy,” said Feige. “We got to make five films within the McU

Tom Holland Unfollows Sony on Social Media After Spending the Day With Rdj

Tom Holland may be tied to two more Spider-Man films for Sony, but he doesn’t have to be happy about it. If things remain as they are, the next films will be really weird. It will be like Peter Parker and Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) have amnesia. No recollection of Tony Stark, the guy who made Peter’s suit, recruited him to the Avengers (the who?), and was his mentor. No relationship with Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau). No memory of the last few years of their lives. Bizarre.

But as much as I am sure Holland will stay professional and still do a great job in the role, he is under no obligation to be happy about it in his personal life. While I’m sure he doesn’t want to get caught up in the drama of making a statement, he made his own small protest last night.

Jon Favreau ‘Holding Out Hope’ for Spider-Man to Remain in the McU
Spider-Man’s potential exit from the Marvel Cinematic Universe could throw a wrench in Happy and Aunt May’s relationship, but Jon Favreau is “optimistic” the love affair will continue amid Sony’s dispute with Disney.

“You never know what’s going to happen. I’m holding out hope and being optimistic that this isn’t the final chapter of the story between those characters,” Favreau told Variety‘s Angelique Jackson at Disney’s biennial D23 Expo in Anaheim, Calif.

Sony, which holds the licensing rights to Spider-Man, announced Wednesday that it would no longer partner with Disney and Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige on the superhero movies. The studio released the wildly successful “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and this year’s “Spider-Man: Far From Home” under the partnership, and lent the character to Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War,” “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame.” Unless Sony and Disney can reconcile,

Jon Favreau had more fun filming Spider-Man: Far From Home than any other movie

Jon Favreau, one of the stars of Spider-Man: Far From Home, says he had more fun acting in the film than in any other movie he has been in.

With all the drama surrounding Spider-Man’s apparent exit from the McU, it feels like a long time ago that Tom Holland and co were on our screens for Spider-Man: Far From Home. Jon Favreau returned for the picture as Happy Hogan and it sounds like he had a ball doing so.

Speaking about acting in other people’s movies as opposed to directing his own features, Favreau told the Hollywood Reporter: “Oh sure, I love doing that. And I learn because I get to be on other peoples’ sets. When I get to see the Russo brothers direct, it’s great. When I get to be on Jon Watts’ set for Spider-Man, I had more fun in his last Spider-Man

Jon Watts is not attached to direct the next Spider-Man movie

Following on from Spider-Man’s exit for now from the McU, it is now being reported that Jon Watts, director of Spider-Man: Far From Home, is not attached to direct the third movie in the series.

When news broke that the relationship between Disney and Sony had broken down, leaving Spider-Man shut out of the McU, it was thought that director of Far From Home Jon Watts would still be making the third movie for Sony.

However, Deadline is reporting that this isn’t necessarily the case. Watts might be in the director’s chair for the film but at this time, he is not attached to direct: “Sony is planning two more installments, though it is an open question whether those will include Jon Watts, director of the first two films guided creatively by Feige. Watts isn’t signed on for the next film and isn’t a certainty

Kevin Smith pleads with Sony to give Disney and Marvel what they want after Spider-Man split

Kevin Smith isn’t taking the news of Spider-Man’s apparent departure from the McU very well, pleading with Sony to make it right.

News has broken that Spider-Man’s future in the McU is in serious jeopardy as Marvel apparently wanted to renegotiate a few details and ensure Kevin Feige received the correct producer credits. Sony didn’t agree with Marvel’s stance and now Spidey will be going forward without Marvel.

There are a lot of fans left feeling disappointed as a result and one of the most vocal is comic book superfan, Kevin Smith. Taking to his Twitter feed, the director posted: “Just stop it! Please Sony Pictures – give Disney what they want and millions of us will keep giving you our money!”

Sony blames Disney for breakdown in Spider-Man negotiations

Yesterday brought us the rather disappointing news that negotiations have broken down between Sony and Disney over Marvel Studios’ continued involvement with Spider-Man, seemingly bringing to an end Tom Holland’s time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe after five hugely successful appearances in Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Given how well received Holland’s wall-crawler has been (and how sketchy Sony has been with its previous handling of the property), fans were understandably upset with the news, and had no hesitation in taking to social media to make their feelings known. And, amid the backlash, Sony has released an official statement, in which the company seemingly puts the blame on Disney:

“Much of today’s news about Spider-Man has mischaracterized recent discussions about Kevin Feige’s involvement in the franchise,” reads the statement. “We are disappointed, but respect Disney

McU Spider-Man No More! Disney and Sony fail to reach new Spider-Man deal

Well, here’s the news that fans of the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man have been dreading… after steering the franchise to its highest-grossing instalment – and indeed, Sony’s biggest movie of all-time – with Spider-Man: Far From Home, Disney and Sony have failed to reach a deal to continue sharing the web-slinger and Marvel Studios will no longer have any involvement with future Spider-Man movies.

According to Deadline, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige was reportedly sidelined during a dispute between Disney and Sony, with Sony said to have turned down a deal which would have seen a 50/50 financing deal between the two studios. Sony is said to have wanted to continue with the terms of the current deal, with around 5% of the first dollar gross going to Marvel, and weren’t prepared to budge on negotiations.

As a result, Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige will no longer be involved with future Spider-Man movies,

Spider-Man: Far From Home to be re-released with new footage

Sony Pictures will be re-releasing Spider-Man: Far From Home with four minutes of additional footage over Labor Day weekend, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

This version of Spider-Man: Far From Home will hit theatres on Thursday 29th August in the United States and Canada, as well as being available in IMAX and other large formats in select locations. This extended version will be four minutes longer than the theatrical cut due to the addition of a “never-before-seen action sequence.”

Although Sony has claimed it will be a brand-new action sequence, this could well be the dropped action scene set in the restaurant with Tom Holland’s Peter Parker wearing the Iron Spider suit that was shown in the trailer and multiple TV spots for the film.

This announcement comes quickly off the heels of Far From Home setting a brand new record of becoming the studio’s highest grossing release ever by hitting $1.109 billion,

‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Adds New Action Scene For Labor Day Weekend
Spider-Man: Far From Home is getting a new scene in time for the long Labor Day weekend.

Today Sony announced a new extended cut of the film will be re-released in theaters in the United States and Canada on Thursday, August 29. The revamped version features four minutes of a never-before-seen action sequence, and will be available in IMAX and large formats in select locations.

As Deadline reported exclusively this morning, Far From Home just passed Skyfall to become Sony’s all-time top grosser worldwide.

The Sony/Marvel sequel opened domestically on July 2. Its split is expected to hit $376M domestic and $733M at the international box office through Sunday.

The milestone comes about three weeks after film crossed the $1B worldwide mark, when it also became Sony’s highest grossing wholly-owned movie of all time. It is the only non-Disney title to cross $1B globally this year.

Spider-Man: Far From Home becomes Sony’s highest-grossing movie ever

The Walt Disney Company has been dominating the box office this year, with five of the six movies to reach the $1 billion mark so far in 2019 coming from the Mouse House.

However, the other – Spider-Man: Far From Home – has now just set a brand new record for Sony Pictures, with the McU superhero sequel hitting $1.109 billion this past weekend to overtake Skyfall on $1.1 billion to become the studio’s highest-grossing release of all time.

Sony’s deal with Marvel Studios has certainly proved hugely beneficial for the studio, with 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming and Far From Home pulling close to $2 billion between them, and the latter no doubt enjoying a decent bump thanks to Disney and Marvel’s record-breaking Avengers: Endgame.

After making the ultimate sacrifice in Avengers: Endgame to defeat the Mad Titan Thanos, Iron Man made his return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe – in a fashion – in Spider-Man: Far From Home, with a zombified version of the Armored Avenger appearing to the web-slinger during one of Mysterio’s illusions. And, thanks to Marvel artist Henrik Tamm, we’ve got a look at some concept art for the sequence, which also reveals that an army of zombified Iron Men were considered for the sequence; check it out here, and visit Henrik’s Instagram for more Far From Home concept art…

‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ To Become Sony’s Highest-Grossing Film Ever As WW Box Office Swings Past ‘Skyfall’ On Sunday
Exclusive: With a projected $1.109B through tomorrow, Spider-Man: Far From Home will swing past Skyfall ($1.108B) to become Sony Pictures’ highest-grossing global release ever. The Sony/Marvel sequel’s split is expected to hit $376M domestic and $733M at the international box office through Sunday.

The milestone comes a little over three weeks after the webslinger crossed the $1B worldwide mark, when it also became Sony’s highest grossing wholly-owned movie of all time. It is the only non-Disney title to cross $1B globally this year.

Well-reviewed, sporting an Avengers: Endgame halo and swinging in after a series of underperformers when it bowed in early July, the film continued to weave through an increasingly crowded summer. It is the No. 2 Hollywood movie of the year in China, behind only Endgame.

Directed by Jon Watts and starring Tom Holland, the film opened early in China, Hong Kong and Japan on June 28. From there,

Isabelle Huppert Coordinates a Family Reunion in U.S. Trailer for ‘Frankie’

An official selection at Cannes and Tiff, Sony Pictures Classics has unveiled the trailer for Ira Sachs’ Frankie. While the filmmaker is known for his films contending with family dramas in Manhattan, his latest feature transplants him to the beautiful locale of Portugal. Starring Isabelle Huppert as the matriarch of a family, bringing them to her seaside town for a reunion and to unveil a secret that could shake their dynamic to the core. Co-starring with Huppert are Brendan Gleeson, Marisa Tomei, Greg Kinnear, and Vinette Robinson.

Our review by Rory O’Connor notes, “It is a heartfelt and modest work but an oddly languid one, a movie that asks the viewer to dig beneath the awkward, stilted topsoil of uneasy family reunion and find the tangled roots beneath….The film tries so hard to position Huppert’s character as something larger than life, a shadow under which these characters

This premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, and they originally put out a teaser trailer just before that festival to build up some buzz. Frankie is set in the lovely town of Sintra, Portugal outside of Lisbon, where a number of palaces and castles are nestled on a hillside. The story follows three generations grappling with a life-changing experience during one day of a vacation. Starring Isabelle Huppert, along with Brendan Gleeson, Marisa Tomei, Greg Kinnear, Jérémie Renier, Vinette Robinson, with Carloto Cotta, Ariyon Bakare, and Sennia Nanua.

‘Frankie’ Trailer: Isabelle Huppert Is a Star With a Big Secret in Ira Sachs’ Family Drama — Exclusive
There’s good casting, and then there is good casting. Indie auteur Ira Sachs has long excelled at populating his tender, family-driven films with big names, but for his latest, he’s reached a new level: casting beloved actress Isabelle Huppert as, well, a beloved actress. In “Frankie,” Huppert stars as the eponymous Frankie, a famous French performer with a big secret. When she requests that her family join her on a trip to a sunny Portuguese hamlet, what follows is warm, often confusing exploration into family dynamics, with Huppert at the center.

“Frankie” also stars Brendan Gleeson, Marisa Tomei, Jeremie Renier, and Greg Kinnear. The film premiered at Cannes in May and will next screen at Tiff next month.

At Cannes, IndieWire’s David Ehrlich wrote that the film features Huppert’s most vulnerable performance to date. He continued, “Set across a 12-hour stretch of a misbegotten family vacation
