After it was reported that Sony and Disney's Spider-Man deal had gone sour, a group of Facebook users devised a plan to bring the webslinger back to the MCU. So how do they intend on doing this? By simply dressing up in Spider-Man costumes and raiding Sony Studios.
As of Wednesday night, over 4,000 people have pledged to attend the Facebook event titled "Storm Sony and Bring Spider-Man Home to the MCU." The raid is scheduled to take place from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. on Oct. 31 at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, California.
"We storm Sony Pictures in solidarity dressed in Spider-Man costumes and bring our boy home!" the event description reads.
On Tuesday, it was announced that Sony and Disney failed to reach an agreement on the future of their Spider-Man partnership. The former reportedly proposed a 50/50 co-financing deal that would give them half the profits of future Spider-Man installments. Sony rejected the deal and has since confirmed Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige would no longer be involved with the franchise.
As Spider-Man's future in the MCU remains uncertain, many Marvel fans have launched online campaigns in attempt reunite Disney and Peter Parker. Some have called for a boycott of Sony and the next two Spider-Man films, starring Tom Holland.
"After the news today that Sony walked away from their deal with Disney, I cannot in good faith stand by while Spider-man and his fans around the world become collateral damage," read a Change.org petition. "Spider-man in the MCU has brought some of the best moments in modern cinema history. SONY you must let go of this property or renegotiate with Disney to keep all of the fans happy [...] Please join me in standing against Sony who I'll be boycotting until this matter is properly resolved."
