#SaveSpidermanfromSony has been floating around the Twitterverse, bringing every Marvel fan out of the woodwork with something to say about the Sony-Disney debate. 

     In case you aren’t one of the die hard fans, you need to know that many years ago Marvel went bankrupt due to a lack in comic book sales. It led to its property being split up between many different companies, who all began the movie making process, bringing Marvel out of comics and into other media.(https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2019/08/23/behind-scenes-disney-sony-fight-spider-man/?noredirect=on)

     The controversy today comes from a dispute between two of those companies, Sony and Disney, over money and rights to Spiderman, a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. On the surface of the issue, Disney wanted to be made full partner in their arrangement with Sony, asking for a 50-50 share of the profits, in order to keep lending out their top producer, Feige. Sony turned down the deal, leaving Disney with a choice. They could either keep Feige on the project, despite their rejected proposal, or they could take back their producer and leave Sony to fend for itself. Disney chose the latter, leaving Spiderman to Sony, which has led to an uproar from loyal Spiderman fans. 

     Leaving Spiderman to Sony was a critical and well maneuvered decision; Disney had to do it. Feige is a legend among producers. Everything he touches turns into a hit. Without him, Sony will have a much more difficult time maintaining the Spiderman hype. If they fail, they’ll have no choice but to come back into the welcoming embrace of Disney. They know what they’re doing. Disney is making decisions to set themselves up in the end. Disney has a plan, and, for now, that plan entails Spiderman leaving the Marvel Cinematic Universe.(https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2019/08/23/behind-scenes-disney-sony-fight-spider-man/?noredirect=on) #SpidermanFarFromDisney
