    Michael Keaton, Woody Harrelson, possibly Jake Gyllenhaal and potentially Tom Hardy and Jared Leto. This theoretical movie has the potential to have a hell of a cast.

    Hey, Michael Mando is no slouch either! As proven by Better Call Saul.

    Ouch! Forgotten already? You were just down ther

    Wow. Yeah. That's a pretty big hole. It's certainly not too big of a stretch to suggest that Mysterio of all people had a back-up plan to fool EDITH to fake his own death.

    I wasn't sure whether or not to post this here or over in the MCU spoiler/speculation thread: but is there any word on whether or not the current deal between Sony and Disney covers other Spider-people (such as Miles Morales or Spider-Gwen/Ghost-Spider), or would those characters have to be re-negotiated on as an when they may appear in live-action form?

    For example, with an MCU movie in the works for Shang-Chi, my hope is that follow-on movies (and/or Disney+ series) could lead to an on-screen incarnation of the comics' New Agents of Atlas. However, the current Earth-616 version of the team also features Cindy Moon, who as a "Spider-person" presumably falls under the Sony stable of Marvel characters. So if Marvel were one day minded to assemble an Agents of Atlas team in the MCU, would they already be able to add Silk to the mix under their current deal with Sony, or would they have to sign a separate deal in order to allow her to be part of such a team?

    Sony owns the filmic rights to Miles and Spider-Gwen (see Into the Spider-Verse).

    As Digific noted, miles and Gwen are both Sony as seen in Into the Spider-Verse. As for Cindy Moon, though she wasn't named as such in the dialogue, one of Peter's classmates in Homecoming was listed in the credits as Cindy Moon, therefore I imagine that Cindy is also a Sony character.

    As far as I know, the only 2 Spider-Man-related characters that Marvel/Marvel Studios controls in terms of filmic rights are Spider-Woman (Jessica Drew) and Kingpin.

    Yes, they're all Sony characters. What I believe Nerroth was asking was whether Sony's deal with Marvel gives Marvel permission to use them in MCU films other than Sony's Spider-Man films, in the way that Civil War, Infinity War, and Endgame used Spider-Man (and Aunt May and Ned).

    Fingers crossed it's a character I don't care about.
