Sony earned $86 million in the Second Quarter of 2017 due to the Playstation video game system and a little movie called Spider-Man: Homecoming, and an even littler movie, Baby Driver.
Spider-Man snared almost $900 million ($875,885 million worldwide) which is a lot of ducats for a movie that was supposed to underwhelm due to franchise fatigue (which is essentially a myth that says if you make crappy movies often enough people will eventually wise up and not pay to see them. And sure, it might take longer than anyone would like–but it WILL happen).
And Sony might want to consider re-upping their deal with Marvel Studios (especially when they botch their Venom solo movie. Come now, you know you were thinking the same damn thing).

I enjoyed the movie a lot. Let’s hope the Marvel deal endures.
The Marvel Studios/Sony deal has rebooted Spider-Man and the sequel (on the strength of Homecoming and the Infinity War movies) will likely send the Homecoming sequel into the Billion Dollar Club.
So, OF COURSE Sony is going to fuck with the goose that lays the golden egg! It’s Sony!
