Many moons ago, when the studio was negotiating for Peter Parker's screen rights (they only owned DVD rights at the time), Marvel boss Ike Perlmutter presented a bumper deal to Sony that would have seen the company gain control of Captain America, Iron Man, Black Panther, Thor, Hulk and numerous other pillars underpinning the current Marvel Cinematic Universe - for the record, by 1998, the X-Men and Fantastic Four were already shacked up at Fox. At the time, Marvel Entertainment was recovering from bankruptcy and just branching out into the film world.
Mr. Landau took the offer back to his bosses at Sony, whose response was quick and decisive, he recalled in an interview: "Nobody gives a sh-about any of the other Marvel characters".

"The deal was, this is of course a Sony movie, but that we would produce it".

"It would have been silly for Sony to do this movie with Marvel and not get the benefit of what Marvel knows".
