Spidey lives on – and let’s wish Sony a sweet goodbye! That’s right true believers, the Japanese high tech company which gave us the Walkman, Blu-Ray Discs and the Playstation video game console, will from now on call itself Spidey – in honor of Spider-Man, the Marvel created wall crawling, web slinging and JJ Jonah Jameson employed superhero. Excelsior!
Spidey Webs Sony – That Ain’t No Baloney
Laugh Trek needed to get our web fluid refilled. We decided to wall crawl to the nearest Sony – um, make that Spidey – office to set the record straight on the wild name change and the overall future of Spider-Man in the Sony Verse and even the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
LT: We’re actually hanging onto the side of a wall courtesy of webbing. Mind blowing mode activate! This is too cool!
SO: Ain’t it just the most amazing thing? Hanging onto a wall all webbed up helps our collective creativity.
LT: I bet. Is there a net down there? Ya know what, I’d rather not know – let’s pretend we’re in no danger at all, shall we?
SO: Spidey’s webs hold everything in place like super glue. No worries.
LT: OK. So Bye-bye to Sony, and a big hello to Spidey. This is a major step. Any regrets?
SO: Look, the Sony name did us damn proud for a long time. But guess what? Spidey is doing us a hell of a lot more proud these days.
LT: Indeed. And Marvel is kicking itself for lots of reasons.
SO: Disney is kicking Mickey Mouse in his tiny rodent arse. Marvel is kicking Iron Man for not talking Spidey back into the fold. Ya know, it’s truly a beautiful thing. Bottom line, folks: We got our grubby, corporate hands on Spider-Man now, so why not name our company after our main man. It’s Spidey all the way, comic book loving babies. Prepare to be razzle dazzled by a continuance of Spidey in the Sony universe.
LT: Marvel is completely shut out for good? No more MCU for Spidey?
SO: Look, deals can always be made, right? Is there too high a price to pay for Spider-Man to appear in a Marvel movie? Can Spidey not be bought? We say – nah!
LT: Cards on the table, bubs. How much will it cost?
SO: For our beloved Spider-Man to grace the Marvel Cinematic Universe once more? Let’s see. I know… (takes on Dr. Evil look) Merely pay us One Trillion Dollars! Or maybe just a wee bit more! (Laughing)
