I'm still waiting to see if my attempts to sign up for EI have gone through or not. Phone lines are impossible to get through.

@  furrykef : (23 March 2020 - 05:58 PM)

There's talk that they may have found a cure for the virus. Here's hoping.

@  A Fox in a D... : (22 March 2020 - 07:27 PM)

Yeah, our D&D sessions and just going out for drinks at local breweries is basically gone right now. We're thinking of doing remote sessions but it's still not the same.

@  Wulfsbane : (22 March 2020 - 03:28 PM)

It just sucks cause my friends and I can't do our usual weekend stuff cause most of the restaurants we go to are closed or takeout only

@  furrykef : (22 March 2020 - 11:20 AM)

I know exactly how you feel.

@  A Fox in a D... : (22 March 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Yeah, there's a part of me that, as an introvert, should be totally OK with the concept of staying home. But there's also a huge part of me that is incredibly unnerved by the concept of having the choice taken away. Before, it felt like something I wanted to do, but now it just feels lonely and sad.

@  A Fox in a D... : (22 March 2020 - 10:38 AM)

Ah, no worries. Thanks for clarifying. <3

@  Wulfsbane : (22 March 2020 - 05:31 AM)

I absolutely recognize that this is going to have a change in how we do things, for better or for worse. There's going to be some positive changes out of this and some negative changes as well. I get this is something we haven't seen in 100 years.

 

If I came off as insensitive, I should apologize and explained what I meant a bit more.

@  Wulfsbane : (22 March 2020 - 05:23 AM)

You misunderstand. My daily life consists of me going to work and going home. When I order food out I usually get take out anyways. See I work 2nd shift so my options of what I can/can't do is limited by time anyways and hasn't effected me as much, the only real thing being I can't sit down at the diner when I get out at 11pm-12am on a Friday night. So when I say I'm not changing much of my daily life it's because my routine is at a point where my interactions with people, in person, are limited to begin with

@  A Fox in a D... : (20 March 2020 - 11:01 AM)

Regardless of how you feel Covid affects you personally, there's an absolute change this puts on everyone globally, especially small businesses and at-risk people. It will influence how we look at the media landscape, how we deliver entertainment and services, and workplace practices going forward, some long term, some short, some good and some bad. These sort of pandemics don't come around with zero wake, and we've already seen that and are seeing it right now. If you don't think anything is different, then you aren't looking hard enough.

@  A Fox in a D... : (20 March 2020 - 10:09 AM)

No, Covid is it's already costing businesses and lives, and it's made life difficult for just about everyone I know, particularly in my industry where we've having to scramble to ship games from home. What you're doing is unwise and irresponsible, and you're not the only person in existence, so you can keep your "not really".

@  Wulfsbane : (19 March 2020 - 08:57 PM)

Not really. I'm still going about it as if nothing's different

@  GetCrazyWith... : (18 March 2020 - 06:48 PM)

Covid is going to screw up all our lives

@  RedAuthar : (17 March 2020 - 09:43 PM)

I know your pain Ben, I know your pain...

@  Shadow : (16 March 2020 - 08:13 PM)

Lucky you.

@  Wulfsbane : (16 March 2020 - 05:16 AM)

I still gotta work

@  A Fox in a D... : (16 March 2020 - 12:03 AM)

It's only boring if you make it so. I'm stuffing my quarantine with as much art as I can muster.

@  furrykef : (13 March 2020 - 07:16 AM)

Stupid COVID-19 got chess club canceled. I guess I should prepare myself for a particularly boring next few months.

@  furrykef : (24 February 2020 - 08:05 PM)

Not yet. It's complicated.

 

 

Originally reported by Deadline:

 


Disney asked that future Spider-Man films be a 50/50 co-financing arrangement between the studios, and there were discussions that this might extend to other films in the Spider-Man universe. Sony turned that offer down flat, and I don’t believe they even came back to the table to figure out a compromise. Led by Tom Rothman and Tony Vinciquerra, Sony just simply didn’t want to share its biggest franchise. Sony proposed keeping the arrangement going under the current terms where Marvel receives in the range of 5% of first dollar gross, sources said. Disney refused. Two more movies were planned allegedly. Sources said there are two more Spider-Man films in the works that are meant to have director Jon Watts and Tom Holland front and center. Holland is under contract with Sony directly. Unless something dramatic happens, Feige won’t be the lead creative producer of those pictures

 

As per Variety:

 

The deal is still in negotiation even though Disney and Sony reached an Impass. Nothing is final as a deal could still be reached

So from what I can tell, note that sources have conflicting answers, both Disney and Sony want more money out of the deal. While a understanding can be reached, both sides need to burn a bit before a decision can be reached.

I think Disney may cave in this, they have a ton riding on Spiderman now in the MCU. It would be very difficult to replace him.

Possibly. But if they don't, guess who Sony has to reboot again. There last two Spiderman movies were too tied into the cinematic universe. You'd lose Peter's backstory, Happy as he is a Ironman character, Mysterio's Backstory, Vulture's Backstory...

A third one would be terrible pretending none of that happened.

Both are calling the other's bluff, so now it's a game of chicken.
I can't make a joke about your name anymore either!

Things seem ultimately final for Spiderman. Sony never gave up trying to make their own Spiderman franchise after the deal with Marvel, hence their Venom movie to start a string of movies based around his villains instead. Next up is Morbius, and since they have Tom Holland contracted to play Spiderman two more times he will be in their personal projects with any MCU references omitted making it a reboot in disguise. Somehow I think Sony merely bided their time to let Spiderman soak in the disney dollars until the time was right to pull him back, that way they reap the rewards of all the merchandising Disney put in for him.

I mean it's definitely a possibility. I think Disney overplayed their hand and hoped the Stans would come and cause Sony to back off.

 

It could all end up like a Guardians 3 situation where James Gunn returned after 9 months after getting fired.

I kinda think the MCU will take a immediate hit, but will ultimately recover.

I feel the next Spiderman's success will determine if Sony will renegotiate.
