In 1998, when an almost-bankrupt Marvel Studios was trying to sell the rights to all of its characters in order to save the company from failure, Sony had the possibility to purchase the rights to ALL of the Marvel characters for a mere 25 million dollars check.
According to sources, the offer reached a Sony executive and the prospect of making a movie about Iron Man, Ant-Man, Black Panther, Thor or Guardians of the Galaxy wasn’t really an exciting thought!
Sony decided to pay $10 million for Spider Man alone. For “just” $15 million more they could have had the rights to all the Avengers and many other characters. As we all know, nowadays the Marvel Cinematic Universe grossed more than 20 Billion dollars worldwide. Sony clearly missed out on a great investment here!!
