Fans who expect Spiderman to return to the Marvel cinematic universe will be disappointed to hear that "the door is closed for the time being," according to Sony Pictures chairman and CEO Tony Winchicker.
Speaking at the Diversity Summit for Entertainment and Technology, Vincikera cryptically added that "it's a long life", suggesting that perhaps in the distant future the network-based character may return back to Disney property.  Vincicker insists there is no "bad will" between Sony and Marvel after the two failed to agree on financing terms for upcoming Spiderman films, effectively removing Tom Holland's Spider-Man from the Marvel basket of both future self and team functions. However, he also acknowledged the reaction of fans to the news, saying it was an "interesting few weeks" for the studio.
Vincicker said Marvel boss Kevin Fage was "stretched incredibly thin" with new additions coming to the MCU as one of the reasons for the break in negotiations.
"We had a great run with (Feige) on Spider-Man movies," Sony boss said. "We tried to see if there was a way to deal with them …. Marvel people are great people, we have a lot of respect for them, but on the other hand, we have some great people of our own. Kevin didn't do all the work. "
Now that one of his biggest features is in his hands only, Vincicera said that Sony plans to launch its own universe using the vast array of Spider-Man characters.
The studio is in production. the second Venom movie, a picture based on the character Morbius and the five or six TV series set in Spiderman's world, Sony boss reassured that the character would do "just fine" outside the MCU, citing the success of "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" and the Sony-Amazon series "Boys" as proof that Sony is completely with
"Spider-Man was fine before the event films, better with the event films and now that we have our own universe, it will play with the other characters too," said Vincicera . "I think we are pretty capable of doing what we have to do here."
Many expressed the hope that the Spiderman could remain in the MCU, as Marvel Steward John Favreau commented during his keynote talk at Ent & Technical summit that the split was "not for lack of trying."
"I talked to everyone about this … I'm cautiously optimistic," Favreau said of Speedy's situation. "I think this is a long way off and I think the collaboration has been very strong so far, so I hope everyone else, to play together, is moving forward."
Leaving aside the website, Vinciquerra categorically stated that Sony Studios was "not for sale" despite being regularly printed to the contrary. Sony's boss also discussed the studio's decision to avoid the ongoing wars so far in the common market, which it says allows Sony to be "more transparent" with its creators without becoming a "watch on any platform" .
Vincicker said that when he first came to Sony in 2017, he saw the need to make major studio changes in order to keep up with the rise of streaming.
"With the development of business in the current world, from both theatrical and television point of view, the opportunities are great, but the organizations that existed at that time were not suitable or designed to take advantage of these opportunities." , he said. "We were able to go over a relatively short period of time to be representative of what business looks like and that's what I like to do, it's fun to work with."
As for where in the current landscape "Seinfeld," One of Sony's most beloved features, it turns out, is Vinciquerra's suitably closed. But when pressed for the timeline within which the deal would be struck, he cryptically stated that he would be hit "before filming in New York."
