Spider-Man fans are in a frenzy right now. With these two warring parents refusing to get along for their child, Spidey, people are starting to take sides. With most people agreeing that Disney/Marvel should get a 50/50 percent cut from the gross, and a smaller amount of people believing Sony is in the right. There is one person who is not freaking out over this fiasco. Stan Lee‘s daughter, Joan Celia Lee isn’t to happy with Marvel.
“When my father died, no one from Marvel or Disney reached out to me. From day one, they have commoditized my father’s work and never shown him or his legacy any respect or decency … In the end, no one could have treated my father worse than Marvel and Disney’s executives.“
With everyone trying to keep Spider-Man in the MCU, with the likes of Jeremy Renner, Tom Holland’s dad, and Ryan Reynolds all taking to social media to start the platform #savespidey, it seems that J.C. Lee is in the minority. One noticeable absence is Tom Holland. Known for his blabber mouth, it is particularly interesting that he hasn’t said anything.
But what do you think? Do you think Sony is being greedy and should hand over the rights to Spider-Man essentially giving Marvel back all their properties? Or do you think Disney is being greedy for wanting that 50/50 split rather than the five percent, plus all merchandise, that they had before? Or for the third and final option, should the two of them work it out and settle upon some sort of deal? Let us know with your comments.
