Re: Do you think Marvel will EVER get the film rights to Spider-Man?
kill spiderman in every other form of media and sony will cave
a movie franchise CANNOT survive without an advertising budget, and merchandise pays for that budget.
sorry but EVEN spiderman CANNOT thrive without some sort of support.
and starting with tasm2, sony is on their own, NO merchandise money
no comics, no toys, no nothing, disney does not NEED spiderman money, they got pixar, star wars and amusement parks and the rest of the marvel universe.
and when disney gets nothing for the movies, why not kill him?
fox hasn't had xmen support since disney bought marvel, and look what happened, wolverine and first class made 16.2 million COMBINED domestically, and domestic box office is ALL that matters when it comes to sequels, and before anyone tries to say i'm wrong, please provide INDISPUTABLE PROOF by citing a legitimate example of ONE big budget movie that tanked domestically yet cleaned house overseas that got a sequel.
