Re: Sony Fucks Disney Over Spiderman

I expect they just wont mention him again. Or maybe like they'll have someone go 'Hey should we call our friendly neighborhood..." Then someone will interrupt like "No kids!" They managed to get away with no Hulk for a while, but Hulk kind of likes his space so it kind of fits that he'd be absent, ...

Re: Sony Fucks Disney Over Spiderman

Regarding media consolidation, it's worth remembering that without Disney and their messing with copyright law, Spiderman would be a public domain character very soon.
