The upcoming Spider-Man films won't be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as per reports. This comes after Sony Entertainment and Disney, the parent company of Marvel Studios, had a dispute regarding profit-sharing, reports added.
After Spider-Man was reported to not be a part of Marvel Cinematic Universe, Sony has said that they respect Disney’s decision not to have Kevin Feige continue as a lead producer of their next live-action Spider-Man film.
Sony, who couldn’t crack a deal with Disney to keep Spider-Man in the MCU, has come out in support of Disney producer Kevin Feige who is busy with the announcement of the next phase of MCU movies in the pipeline.
In the wake of the announcement that Spider-Man: Far From Home is now the highest-grossing film ever in Sony Pictures’ history, reports surfaced that Marvel Studios may be stepping away from the cross-studio partnership.
Sony has held the rights to the Marvel character since 1985 but announced its union with MCU and Disney which would allow Spider-Man to be used in MCU films like Avengers: Endgame. And this cross over was well received by the fans as the teenage web-slinger who maintained a close relationship to Tony Stark that drove the storylines in both Endgame and Far From Home.
To strengthen the reports, Spider-Man also has no official MCU appearances planned in the fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Megastar Chiranjeevi's son-in-law Kalyaan Dhev made his debut as a lead hero with the 2018 film Vijetha. He is currently busy with the works of his next Super Machi. Meanwhile, the actor said that he has no plans of entering into the OTT space anytime soon.
Speaking in a recent interview, Kalyaan Dhev said that no one has an issue if a star hero enters into the OTT arena. But if an upcoming actor like him do web series or a web film will make people think that we lack offers. He added that entering OTT platforms will be a risky move to his career. Thus, Kalyaan has no intention of entering digital space as of now.
