Sony plans to pull Spider-Man from Disney films

Sony and Marvel have been unable to come to a new deal to keep Spider-Man on the big screen. Sony says it will not co-produce any more films with Marvel Studios, which also means Disney, and Marvel's President Kevin Feige. Sony has owned the rights to the Spider-Man character since 1999, and Disney was seeking a 50-50 split co-financing stake in any future films with the character.
