The rights of Spider-Man films have lied with Sony since 1999, a time when Marvel was dealing and recovering from bankruptcy. Along with Spider-Man, Sony posses the rights to a number of Spider-Man-related characters, like Venom.
On Monday, Sony announced that the latest Spider-Man release 'Far From Home' has dethroned the James Bond film 'Skyfall' to become their most successful release with a global earning of over USD 1 billion.
The film is getting a re-release on August 29 with four minutes of extra footage.
