The idea that Marvel and Sony are antagonistic is simply not true and they have a history of working together.
Exactly. They're not antagonistic at all. Can't say the same thing about Fox and Marvel.
Sony also let Marvel use the Empire State University in one of Marvel's One-Shots (Item 47). One of the characters wears an ESU shirt. ESU is a Spider-Man property who is a Sony property at the moment.
