‘Captain America: Civil War’ Screened For Sony Execs For Spider-Man Clearance

Captain America: Civil War is deep into post production while Marvel is basking in the success of the record shattering 61 million views for the recent trailer. That is a pretty impressive number. Marvel movies are approaching $8 BILLION dollars in worldwide box office. Even more impressive. So it is pretty safe to say Marvel has a winning formula and they especially know they’re doing.

So I find it quite HILARIOUS, when according to sources, executives from Sony have to screen Captain America: Civil War so they can “give their notes” and “sign off” on the portrayal of Spider-Man in the movie. Seriously? Are you kidding me? I was in stitches when I was told that. When I told other sources that, they cracked up as well. I felt like a Comedian on the Sunset Strip doing a bit.

Yes, executives from Sony – the studio that brought you After Earth, White House Down, Aloha, and most recently Pixels – have to clear Spider-Man’s portrayal in the upcoming Marvel movie. Do you folks not see the comedy in that? The screening happened either last week or is taking place this week. It is probably also the reason we haven’t seen Spider-Man in the trailer.

Sony doesn’t realize how incredibly lucky they are. Instead of giving notes, they should send Feige a holiday fruit basket and be THANKFUL that they’re even allowed into the editing bay. Technically, Spider-Man belongs to Sony and they are within their right, but still, take a backseat and let the professionals handle it. Spider-Man is in good hands yo.

Seriously guys, I can’t make this stuff up. You find this funny as well? Chime in below.
