          Sony ‘Disappointed’ by Disney’s Divorce on ‘Spider-Man’ Projects

          Sony Pictures has gone public over its divorce with Disney on future “Spider-Man” projects.

          In a rare public rebuke to Disney, Sony announced Tuesday night that it was “disappointed” over the decision, highlighting Disney’s refusal to allow Marvel President Kevin Feige to continue as a producer on the projects. It also praised Feige, who teamed with Amy Pascal on “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” which became Sony’s most successful release earlier this week in terms of global box office.

          “Much of today’s news about Spider-Man has mischaracterized recent discussions about Kevin Feige’s involvement in the franchise,” Sony said in a statement. “We are disappointed, but respect Disney’s decision not to have him continue as a lead producer of our next live action Spider-Man film.”

          How the Dead ‘Spider-Man’ Deal Fueled Sony’s Rebound

          • The Wrap
          If Sony truly ends up leaving the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it does so in a far stronger position than it did before Tony Stark and Peter Parker shared the screen together.

          The news broke Tuesday that Disney, which owns Marvel Studios and the McU, was ending its partnership with Sony, which makes the Spider-Man films. A person familiar with Disney’s thinking told TheWrap on Tuesday that the company considers the matter closed, and isn’t negotiating any further. Other sources told TheWrap that Sony believes the dispute is simply over a producer credit, and that negotiations are ongoing.

          The McU’s Spider-Man, played to critical and popular acclaim by Tom Holland, has appeared in five films that have grossed just over $8 billion worldwide combined. Of those five, the two stand-alone films financed and distributed by Sony, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” have grossed nearly $2 billion worldwide, with

          ‘Spider-Man’ Crisis: Can the Marvel-Sony Deal Be Saved? (Analysis)
          If Spider-Man returned from disintegration at the end of “Avengers: Infinity War,” could last-minute heroics also save the deal that brought him into the Marvel Cinematic Universe? It will either take a lot of Infinity Stones, or some major corporate reversals.

          Sony and Marvel Studios’ deal to criss-cross the Spidey and Marvel Cinematic Universes began with Iron Man enlisting young Peter Parker for an airport battle royale in 2016’s “Captain America: Civil War” and continued across two “Avengers” and two “Spider-Man” films. It was one of the most mutually beneficial crossovers in movie history: Sony announced over the weekend that the latest Spidey film, “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” was the highest-grossing Sony film ever, with $1.1 billion at the box office.

          But soon after that happy news came unexpected tragedy — before anyone’s spider sense even faintly tingled. Disney announced it’s walking away from the deal, likely dooming hopes of

          Fox Executives on How Disney Layoffs Have Shaken the Studio: ‘I Have Survivor’s Guilt’

          • The Wrap
          The phones have stopped ringing. The hustle and bustle of the lot that released more than a dozen movies last year is gone. This is the general feeling former and current Fox employees have in the wake of major layoffs since Disney’s acquisition of Fox in March. With the exception of Nancy Utley and Stephen Gilula’s art-house division Fox Searchlight, which continues to both release and produce new movies, work on the regular Fox film lot has ground to a near-standstill, according to half a dozen current and former Fox executives. No new films have been greenlit since the mer
