But we'll still be getting Tom Holland in the role, still directed by John Watts, and I don't know that there's any reason that they wouldn't bring back screenwriters Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers. I don't think the fact that they can't use the word "Avengers" (assuming that the two companies even really have completely and definitively parted ways as the Deadline report suggested) will do all that much damage.
Well, that and the fact that they (supposedly) won't have Marvel to look over their shoulder, anymore.
Because it worked so well for Spider-Man 3, Ghost Rider, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, and both (Un)Amazing Spider-Man movies, right?
Not to mention every attempt of Sony's to start a franchise has ended in failure. Resident Evil, jumanji, Ghostbusters, Men in Black, etc. They've also produced so many garbage films like the Emoji movie, Pixels, The 5th Wave, the Dark Tower, the RoboCop and Total Recall remakes, Sex Tape, Jack and Jill, Grown Ups 1 and 2, also complete failures both critically and commercially. Yeah they have the occasional sleeper like Superbad and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (which Tarantino wrote, produced and directed with full creative control and Sony only distributed and signed the checks, so I'm not even sure this counts), but that's not exactly a boastful list right there.
And people wonder why others are petrified of them taking Spider-Man without Papa Marvel overseeing them. They're bound to skreeonk it up eventually (it might not take them long judging by their track record, lol), that's just how they roll. They make terrible decisions on their films.
