Leaked Sony documents reveal Marvel discussion about Spider-Man movie crossover

Hackers got into Sony Pictures’ network and stole over 100TB of private data at the end of November, and it’s slowly being leaked online. New emails obtained by The Wall Street Journal reveal that Sony and Marvel had discussions in October about a potential scenario that would see Marvel produce a new trilogy of Spider-Man movies while Sony retains “creative control, marketing and distribution”. The emails also revealed that Marvel wanted to include Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War. Unfortunately, the two companies were unable to come to an agreement.

While sourcing internal documents from November, The Wall Street Journal says that Sony is now planning a “Spidey summit” for January to discuss future plans. Among projects in development are an animated Spider-Man comedy that would be produced by Chris Miller and Phil Lord, the team behind 22 Jump Street and The Lego Movie, as well as previously disclosed Spider-Man spin-offs focused on villain team Sinister Six, super-foe Venom, and women from the webslinger’s life.
