At the price Sony should fetch for Spider-Man's rights, it's basically would be "Buy Spider-Man and get Sony Pictures for free." I don't think either of them are interested in that deal happening right now. Streaming rights? Sure but I don't think beyond that.If Sony gives up Spider-Man, then they might as well close down the studio. I can't imagine Disney meeting the price Sony would ask, especially when the current deal seems agreeable to all parties (otherwise they wouldn't have extended).
And I think there's every reason to believe SPIDEY 3 will open for the holidays as planned, as a Sony-distributed theatrical release.
