Disney recently removed a 2021 film from its roster, one that seemed to compete with a Sony film releasing at the same time. What could this mystery movie be?

When it comes to the Disney and Sony deal, we have more questions than answers. Recently, there was an untitled film on Disney’s lineup, but it was taken off the schedule. Why? Well, nothing is confirmed, but the mystery film seemed to directly compete with a Sony film set to come out at the same time. So, now the question is this: What was Disney’s untitled film?

The release, which was set for October of 2021, might just be a scheduling conflict, since the third installment to the Spider-Man series is set for July of 2021. But we have to wonder what is going on with both Sony and Disney. Why was Disney set to release a movie at the same time as a Sony Marvel film? It’s possible the two have nothing to do with one another. But let’s, for a moment, look at the deal between Sony and Disney.

The Marvel deal is simple: They basically get to share Peter Parker. So, while Sony has been making standalone films for Spidey’s bad guys, Marvel has been working on keeping Peter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

With that comes the knowledge that maybe the untitled Sony Marvel film that was scheduled for 2021 could have been some kind of combination of Peter’s MCU connections with the world that Sony is building. That certainly could have affected whatever movie Disney was planning on releasing.

Again, we don’t know the inner-workings of the deal. So, maybe the movie was supposed to be there without our knowledge or … perhaps this is proof that the Mysterio movie with Jake Gyllenhaal that was rumored is actually happening. Maybe the two films were one and the same?

So far, the Spider-Man portion of the MCU has mostly been comprised of Peter. Even his “villains” are heading into the Sony standalone films, like Venom. Michael Keaton’s Vulture is set to be in Morbius, so what is to say that they didn’t talk it through and decide that Sony would release the Mysterio movie?

Whatever the actual reasoning behind this scheduling change, it’s going to be interesting to see what happens with the future of Sony and Disney.

Next. Apple won’t let villains use iPhones in movies so no 11 Pro Max for Thanos then. dark
