VENOM's Success May Close The Door On SPIDER-MAN Rights Ever Returning To Marvel Studios
I'm sort of wondering about this as well.

The only reason Sony gave in and started to play ball with Marvel is because the ASM series was tanking and Garfield's behavior got him fired.

Sony's been itching to do a Spidey cinematic universe for years, and with Venom doing "well enough" considering it's relatively small budget seems to be enough for them to go full steam ahead with all those movies they've been threatening to make for years.

Though, I do have to wonder, where does the Spider-Man Homecoming/Far From Home series fall in terms of rights? It was a Sony production with Marvel in a "consultancy" position if I remember correctly, as per the conditions of the deal with Marvel. Does this mean Sony can just continue on that series entirely independently? Basically they've just "used" Marvel to restore Spidey to being popular again, then breaking off at the soonest chance they get.
