Spider-Man Contract Reveals How Sony Could Regain Control

That's a twist most probably didn't see coming, and of course when breaking down the film with the New York Times, screenwriters Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers were asked why they chose to shake up the MCU that much.

"We played with the idea that Peter is the one who sacrifices his identity out of necessity during the final battle", explained McKenna. Mysterio's risky maneuver - placing himself in the line of the drones' fire in a last-ditch effort to defeat Spider-Man - ended in his apparently being mortally wounded, and Spidey emerged victorious.

What's also interesting is that Marvel's team took inspiration from the Vision for Mysterio's MCU aesthetic, which makes sense, all things considered and yet the character still has a distinctiveness to him that makes his presence on the screen feel unique.

The specifics of major Hollywood contracts are notoriously hard to ascertain, and the occasional insights we do receive often come from actors revealing how many movies they have left in a particular franchise. Ultimately, we decided that both was the way to go. Could Spider-Man on the run speed up his third film, so that we get a resolution to that cliffhanger faster, or will he be a vigilante figure for the foreseeable future as he protects the neighborhood while avoiding being arrested? What did you think of Tom and Jake's performance in the MCU movie?

The good news is, Spider-Man: Far From Home is already getting great reviews and has cleared half a billion during its opening week.

Then the idea of Mysterio framing Spider-Man for his crimes - much like the villain does in his first ever comic book appearance - came into their heads. We've already seen him in Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame, and now Spider-Man: Far From Home.

The Sony/Marvel Studios deal looks set to hold for one more movie having produced together two solo movies distributed by Sony Entertainment and three distributed by Disney has part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
