This week: Spiders are attempting to take control of your television

MarvelBlog News for November 21st, 2022

Spiders are free with Amazon Prime. The shocking news this week relates to some upcoming Marvel television series

But Disney has nothing to do with this tale in any way

Instead, Sony is prepared to expand Spider-Man Universe on streaming platforms

MarvelBlog News for November 21st, 2022

Disney and Sony don’t have a legally-binding agreement for the use of Marvel characters, so Sony is free to look elsewhere. Jeff Bezos, do you know who has a lot of money

The founder of Amazon recently demonstrated this by committing $700 million to a Lord of the Rings television series

Bezos is now prepared to fill the Brink’s truck with the money and send it to Sony

MarvelBlog News for November 21st, 2022

In a ground-breaking agreement, Sony committed to developing a number of new series for.

well, that part gets a little muddled

MarvelBlog News for November 21st, 2022

You might be unaware of Epix, a linear cable channel

You may only be aware of it if you’re a comic book reader because of Pennyworth. That is the tale of Alfred Pennyworth’s beginnings as Batman’s father-like butler

For a while, Epix used Pennyworth as its lead character, but when HBO Max was created, Epix lost the rights. Since then, as part of its overall acquisition of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, also known as MGM, Amazon has acquired the rights to Epix

MarvelBlog News for November 21st, 2022

This is where things really start to get complicated. The MGM service, which is merely a rebranded Epix, will soon replace Epix as Amazon’s preferred service. The shows we’re about to talk about will therefore air on a streaming service that doesn’t even yet exist rather than a cable channel that does but won’t for a while

All right? Yes, the consolidation of Hollywood has produced some peculiar discussions

MarvelBlog News for November 21st, 2022

One thing is still true, though. Beyond 2022, there will be an unheard-of demand for content

Referring to the Sony Programs Sony has the freedom to choose the best offers for its products because it is one of the few independent players in the market

This is what has taken place

MarvelBlog News for November 21st, 2022

Sony couldn’t refuse the offer that Amazon made to the Spider-Verse guardians

As a refresher, Sony’s Spider-Man Universe (SSU) is made up of all Spider-Man-related characters for which Sony has obtained licenses

Collider, in image. By incorporating new characters into the SSU, this Amazon/MGM deal will increase the scope of those rights

MarvelBlog News for November 21st, 2022

The series will focus on Silk specifically

A classmate of Peter Parker’s gets bitten by the same spider, and this television show, Silk: Spider Society, will follow the consequences. The character is described as in the official description:

As she escapes from prison and looks for her missing family while en route to becoming the superhero known as Silk, a Korean-American woman who was bitten by the same spider that bit Peter Parker. “

MarvelBlog News for November 21st, 2022

Silk: Spider Society will be produced by Angela Kang, who directed The Walking Dead’s final three seasons. She will, however, have a lot of support

The Walking Dead Picture: AMC

In addition to Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the minds behind Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and former Sony studio head Amy Pascal, this project also has executive producers. Therefore, the production appears fantastic on paper

There will be an odd release pattern, though. According to a deal between Sony and Amazon, the show will debut on traditional television

MarvelBlog News for November 21st, 2022

Beginning in 2023, it will air on MGM, the new name for Epix

At a later time, Amazon will stream the series globally on Prime Video. It is wise marketing on Amazon’s part to use the SSU to effectively increase awareness for MGM

It will nevertheless lead to confusion at the beginning of Silk: Spider Society

MarvelBlog News for November 21st, 2022

Future Plans Since Silk is only the beginning of this agreement, which Amazon and Sony have referred to as “multiple series,” Sony will continue to provide MGM/Prime Video with SSU content for the foreseeable future

It’s the new Disney in this sense. To increase its visibility and popularity, Disney has used the Marvel Cinematic Universe

There were 73 users of that service in total

MarvelBlog News for November 21st, 2022

For the three months prior to WandaVision’s debut, 7 million. Disney now asserts 164. two million customers. Naturally, the MCU cannot claim ownership of all or even half of that, but it does highlight the popularity of Marvel superhero tales

For its upcoming MGM service to raise awareness and lay the groundwork for its early years, Amazon recently made the same acquisition

Sony has noted that due to the Spider-Man license, it actually has control over 900 Marvel characters

MarvelBlog News for November 21st, 2022

A number of those who were already involved in things like Black Cat and Silver Sable may now become part of television series

Characters from the upcoming SSU films, such as Kraven the Hunter and Madame Web, are also fair game

Given the odd position Morbius currently occupies in popular culture as a terrible movie/terrific meme, we might even witness an effort to redeem the character

MarvelBlog News for November 21st, 2022

Everything is on the table, and Amazon is paying Sony’s expenses! Disney will never again be able to use the Spider-Man characters unless it spends the money to purchase Sony

Update on Black Panther

MarvelBlog News for November 21st, 2022

I’m currently looking into a number of intriguing rumors

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is still the most significant development

MarvelBlog News for November 21st, 2022

The movie made an additional $67,000 over the previous weekend. 3

3 million. As a result, the weekend box office dropped by 63 percent, leaving a running total of $288 million. Wakanda Forever has performed remarkably well internationally, earning a total of $546 million globally after already collecting $258 million abroad

Black Adam’s global take has already been surpassed by more than 50%, as a point of comparison

Here are three more sums to keep in mind

MarvelBlog News for November 21st, 2022

Thor: Love and Thunder came in second with $760 million; The Batman came in first with $770 million. Overall, Dr

Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, who has been heavily criticized, gave the best non-Spider-Man performance since the pandemic began. $955 million was made from it. The sums that Black Panther 2 is aiming for are those

MarvelBlog News for November 21st, 2022

I’m hoping it’ll be the first MCU movie to gross $1 billion since 2019! It should outperform The Batman and Thor 4 at the very least. Here, the early signs are somewhat conflicting. I can make it happen or significantly miss it, depending on how I do the math

Thus, word of mouth is still important. Wakanda Forever may be given a longer run in theaters than other recent films, according to Disney, which has hinted as much. Disney has quickly screened its films on Disney by using the 45-day window

As a way to increase Disney holiday viewing, I had anticipated the same for BP2

MarvelBlog News for November 21st, 2022

But that might not occur right now

In order to watch it in 2022, you should go to the theater as soon as possible
