    Spider-Man: By going their separate ways, Disney and Sony may have just killed the Marvel Cinematic Universe

    Disney hasn’t killed Spider-Man, but they’ve at least left him mortally wounded. It was announced last night, to cries of horror and threats of boycott from Marvel Universe fans, that the pre-existing deal between Spider-Man rights holders Sony and Disney, the home of the Marvel Universe, was to be scrapped, meaning no more Spider-Man/Marvel Universe crossovers, the abandonment of Avengers-adjacent stories set up in this summer’s Spider-Man: Far from Home, and an uncertain future for Tom Holland’s superhero.According to Deadline, Disney wanted to change the financial particulars of the deal, suggesting they and Sony implement a 50/50 co-financing agreement moving forward, which Sony baulked at, as it would reportedly cut into their profits.

    The Emoji Movie trailer is literally a big 'Meh'

    Sony Pictures will next year release an animated movie about emojis. It’s called ‘The Emoji Movie’ and today we got our first ‘Meh’-tastic look at it. That’s not to say ‘meh’ was our reaction to it, it’s just the name of Steven Wright’s Mel Meh, a meh emoji who “announces” the film with all the enthusiasm you’d expect given his name. Mel isn’t the star of the film, that’s TJ Miller’s Gene – an emoji cast as an outsider who teams up Hi-5 (James Corden) and Jailbreak (Ilana Glazer) on an adventure through a teenagers phone. On their way they’ll pass through popular apps such as Candy Crush Saga, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, Spotify, Shazam and YouTube, among others.
