Is Sony's Spidey Sense Tingling?

(Starts at 00:45)

John talks with Variety's Matt Donnelly about his reporting on the future of the Spider-Man film franchise: "A private and contentious battle over the onscreen future of the beloved Marvel superhero has spilled out into the public square over the past few days. After making nice for two wildly successful films, Sony Pictures, which holds the licensing rights to the Marvel character, will go it alone. As every fanboy and girl out there now knows, it will no longer partner with the Disney-owned Marvel Studios on producing sequels."
