Disney, Marvel Have No Respect For Stan Lee, Spider-Man Says Daughter

Disney, Marvel Have No Respect For Stan Lee, Spider-Man Says Daughter

Lee has weighed in on the dispute, telling TMZ that she believes it would be wrong for all of the Marvel Comics characters to exist under one roof.

The late Stan Lee of Marvel Comics is a revered figure in the world of superhero fandom.

The fragile compromise between the two studios reportedly collapsed over Disney's demand that future Spider-Man films be financed on a 50/50 basis, rather than the current arrangement, under which Marvel Studios receives 5% of the gross.

While the corporations might not have reached out to J.C. directly following her father's death, the degree to which Marvel and Disney supported Lee financially is a complicated matter.

"From day one ... they have never shown him or his legacy any respect or decency", she adds. "Whether it's Sony or someone else, the continued evolution of Stan's characters and his legacy deserves multiple points of view". "In the end, no one could have treated my father worse than Marvel and Disney's executives".

Spider-Man's future might hang in the balance, but the dispute between Sony and Marvel over the character - having spilled into the public - is another prime example of super-powered silliness, exposing the limits of turning fans and click-hungry websites into foot soldiers in a corporate standoff.

Spider-Man: Far from Home is still in theatres.

He also reunites, in a way, with Downey Jr.in the upcoming The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle, with Downey Jr. playing the title character and Holland voicing Jip, in theaters January 17, 2020. However, that all came to a halt when the news broke of Sony and Marvel's failing negotiations earlier this week.

Renner, who plays Hawkeye, was disappointed over the Spider-Man drama and expressed how he would like to be in more movies with the web-slinging defender, Fox News reported. "Both of those solo Spidey films were set in the MCU and co-produced by Sony and Marvel, and outraged fan reaction to the idea that there won't be any more of them puts pressure on both sides".
