Some more details have now emerged about the involvement of Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach on the MCU SPIDER-MAN and the standalone movie that is set for 2017.
According to Latino-Review, Avi Arad and Matt Tolomach are producers in name only, and added the following:
“We have information from a source suggesting there is no financial involvement whatsoever and no direct creative control over Spidey coming from the old guard. Amy Pascal still has a say in the Mom-and-Pop arrangement she has with Kevin Feige, but Disney didn’t want to unite Pearlmutter, Arad and Feige in earnest. This means Marvel might have a bit more control than we thought. It means the new SPIDER-MAN has been insulated from both Avi Arad and new Sony head and superhero property curse, Tom Rothman.”
