Pop! Pop! Ep. 44 – Spider-Man: Homesick! (Sony/Disney Fallout)

Spider-Man: Homesick!? BUT WHERE’S HE GOING!?  We’ll get there, but first, it’s a HUGE news week so let’s just dive right in!

Lauren has finally caught up on The Boys but she’s not too sure how to feel about it! James Bond 25 has a title and boy oh boy is it very Bond-y. The Keanu-ssance has finally peaked with the massive announcement of The Matrix 4!  Disney’s version of Comic-Con: D23 is this weekend where our very own Taylor Salan will be reporting LIVE from the field! Long time wrestling-hater, Joel, is geeking out hard on Collider’s Movie Trivia Schmoedown and he’s very passionate about it!

The juiciest news to be squeezed this week is that Sony and Disney are in a custody battle over Spider-Man.  The monumental deal struck over Spider-Man being used in the MCU has fallen apart when Disney asked for a 50/50 co-financing deal and Sony declined. Later reports claim that a rebuttal from Sony was delivered and Disney wasn’t impressed either.  So, without Spider-Man, the MCU is in a storytelling pickle but we definitely don’t trust Sony with a solo Spider-Man film after the train wreck that was The Amazing Spider-Man series.  50/50? 70/30? 80/20?  WHAT’S A FAIR DEAL!? WHO’S FAULT IS THIS!?  Will the third solo Spidey film be called Spider-Man: Homesick! ?  Tune in to find out what the hell is happening!

Some bonus content for your eyeballs! Alongside this chonky podcast, Joel created a short little video on the subject over on his new Youtube channel! Check it out here!
