Poor Spidey by MauricioAbril Poor Spidey by MauricioAbril
I suppose this is what happens when you cross fan art with social commentary. I came up with the idea for this gag illustration after watching “The Amazing Spiderman 2″ on opening weekend, but only just now got around to finishing it. It pretty much summarizes how I felt about the new franchise, the larger Marvel cinematic universe and the realities of binding contracts.

As always, behind-the-scenes and making-of blog posts will be found on my site at MauricioAbril.com

The movie rights to Spiderman are owned by Sony, so he can't be in a Disney Marvel movie unless they sell back the rights :/

I would care more if this related to the older, Tobey Maguire Spiderman instead of the new one. That one was more "adorkable" like I think he was should be. The newer one was too much of a cocky ass for me to like him. As Spiderman, he acted like Ironman without the reason to be. :shrug:

This is what I hate about the rights. I love Spider-Man; he's my most favorite super hero ever! I also love Disney and I think it's cool that they own Marvel now. And the fact that Spider-Man belongs to Marvel makes it more awesome to combine both!
--
But what I REALLY hate is the fact that Disney doesn't own the film rights to Spidey; not even Marvel owns him! :X Why? Why!? WHY!?

Is that the Sony logo on the guy's coat?

That's because Marvel sold Spiderman's rights to Sony I think before the first Spiderman movie. I think they are regretting it now.
