Spider-Man was never Fox. It was Sony. This is why there we no Spider-Man and X-Men crossover films.
Marvel basically made some shitty deals to start so that's why X-Men, Spider-man, and Fantastic Four are in a funky limbo. I believe Marvel approached Sony about getting Spider-man back into MCU.
Sony still has like a lot of the rights to Spider-man films and stuff. Marvel and Sony have basically agreed to have Spider-man in MCU, but Sony can still do their own Spider-man stuff, which is why they are working on a Venom movie and a Black Cat movie and they have nothing to do with MCU or their previous Spider-man stuff. The Venom movie is targeting an R rating too.
This was Marvel's official announcement of the deal:
"Under the deal, the new Spider-Man will first appear in a Marvel film from Marvel's Cinematic Universe (MCU). Sony Pictures will thereafter release the next installment of its $4 billion Spider-Man franchise, on July 28, 2017, in a film that will be co-produced by Kevin Feige and his expert team at Marvel and Amy Pascal, who oversaw the franchise launch for the studio 13 years ago. Together, they will collaborate on a new creative direction for the web slinger. Sony Pictures will continue to finance, distribute, own and have final creative control of the Spider-Man films."
Also, Marvel gets NO MONEY for the Sony made films (so Homecoming, and the potential 2 sequels) is all money for Sony, while Sony gets no money for Spider-man showing up in Marvel Studios films (So Civil War, Infinity War, and I guess the last Avengers film) is all money for Disney and Marvel.
The question is does Sony throw in Spider-man into their new Sony Marvel Universe at some point? I think they should just do Miles Morales if they do and not try to somehow use the Tom Holland one.
Well you don't really watch DP for character growth or plot. You watch it for jokes, gore and breaking the forth wall. DP was always more of parody/satire of superheroes and never took itself too seriously. The biggest strength of this movies was that it was finally a R rated superhero movie that didn't have to play it safe and could be fully for adults. DP humor from the beginning was very specific so not everyone will like it.
The first half of the movie was good, then it puttered out. The jokes were good in the first half then it became just like oh yeah this is his schtick it's really repetitive in this film.
I've never read any of the comics, but I have enjoyed Deadpool's appearances in Marvel vs Capcom 3 and Spider-man: Shattered Dimensions.
At least it was under 2 hours long because then I would've lost my mind.
Yeah, pretty much this. Seems like it's not as much about you not liking the movie as it is about you not liking Deadpool in general.
Speaking of character growth though, Deadpool actually goes through a lot of it in the later comics. Sadly that probably won't ever make it into the movies because it mostly involves characters that Fox doesn't have the rights to. One of his best storylines heavily involves Thanos, for example. Another gem involves Loki and Thor, though mostly for comedic reasons.
But I highly doubt that Disney would even touch Deadpool. If they made a PG-13 version of Deadpool then kids would probably be curious to finding out who the hell Deadpool is and would read the comics. And the Deadpool comics are much worse then any scene in Deadpool that would get it an R Rating.
Never say never. I mean, the guys making Rouge One were worried Disney would tell them to make the ending different but that did not happen. Plus, the Pirates movies always seemed darker than normal Disney stuff. Yeah, all of that is PG-13, but who knows.
They could do it and just not plaster Disney anywhere on it. I had no idea Pirates was a Disney film the first time I saw it. Disney has other studios that they use for more adult films and regular people don't know who owns what studios most of the time.
