Not really feeling about a Madame Web film or better I'm not really feeling about most of the non-MCU films from Sony except Venom 2 and the Spider-Verse films.
From what I can tell, Morbius becoming a dud is 80 to 90% likely to be a done deal already. We haven’t heard or seen any footage for that movie, there’s radio silence everywhere, and I can't find anyone who's even kind of hyped for it.I imagine they'd go with the Jennifer Carpenter version but still... Sony should be incorporating what the characters that they have into building stronger Spider-Man movies but they still think any random side character or villain can become a hit movie. It would probably take Morbius making negative box office to steer them in another direction after Venom made them even more confident than they were.

Right, I remember reading the deal being for one Spider movie and one MCU movie was only so they could keep Jon Watts to direct the third Spider-movie. Rest assured (hopefully), Sony wouldn’t dare pull the same exact stunt 2 years from now.Since we are talking about Sony's Marvel movies and their relationship to Disney it should be pointed out that a lot of people for whatever reason seem to think this new deal that Disney has set up suggests they are trying to set up an "end point" for Spider-Man wrapping up sooner rather then later in their universe. And that after this third movie and the other MCU movie Tom Holland is, they're just going to let Sony make Spider-Man films totally without them and just wash their hands of the character being in their universe.
... Yeah the people who think that totally don't get the game that Disney is playing at how much they are winning and how this deal will only capitalize on that fact further.
In case it hasn't been spelled out whatever gamble Sony tried making with the Spider-Man rights and just keeping him to themselves BACKFIRED. When the break out was announced notice how about 90% at least of fans and general onlookers backed up Disney marvel and NOT Sony. They associated Spider-Man with the MCU now and wanted that particular take on the character there and not to move on to just making straight up spider man movies at Sony again. Even the claims that were made of Marvel making the whole co investment for co profits of the films still looked sour on their part when it was revealed that was just a suggested offer they immeidatley backed away from and didn't renegiotate. See Sony made the bad move of allowing themselves to be painted in a negative light. And the talk of Holland and various other actors from the MCU and even other people in the industry wanting Tom Holland's movies at Disney Marvel without Marvel or Disney directly pushing the issue just made Sony look worse. Sony's last ploy was to try and paint head producer Kevin Feige as too busy and that they needed to focus squarely on the character's future trying to point out "with Fantastic Four and X-Men Feige has to focus on that and not us" but that was instantly swatted the very second the whole "Feige is making a Star Wars movie" was reported indicating that yeah the Marvel producer isn't slowing down and can handle as many projects as possible without people worrying about him being spread too thin. Which is why literally the next day they announced the deal of working together again and notice how this negiotation resulted in instead of keeping the same deal Sony and Disney used to have with the character that now it's a split more favorable to Marvel about getting 25% of the profits instead of a mere 5% of the first weekend gross or something of that nature.
And now that it's been made clear that people want Spider-Man to stay with the MCU that gives Disney instant leverage whenever they meet with Sony about the rights of making more movies with the character. As Sony needs Spider-Man they're most profitable and important franchise right now and can't risk their movies or build with him being lessened any. And thus by blinking like that they give Disney that opportunity to further and further take percentages off all in the name of keeping Spider-Man in the MCU to further bolster the sales and general interest of the character. Especially if Sony gets the benefit of now having their world connect more with Marvel's thus drawing more eyeballs to it. Really so long as this is the state of the rights expect Disney to keep gradually pushing for more and more as yeah unlike say iron Man or Captain America which they fully own and thus if they reach a stopping point with the character they can just stop and no one will do anything else, Sony HAS to keep making Spider-Man movies to keep the rights to the character. Thus Marvel is always going to want a taste of those products especially with an actor everyone loves who keeps wanting to make these movies longer then a Robert Downy Jr or Chris Evans would. Thus I don't really see this whole new deal signifying they are wrapping up Spider Man more that they are wrapping themselves further into getting something from Sony Studios with this and they will keep wrapping and wrapping as much as they can possibly get away with so long as these movies keep getting made.
