Since 2014 Kevin Feige has volunteered to help Sony remake films Spider Man (who at that time was still played by Andrew Garfield).
The deal issues between Sony and Marvel Studios are tough, especially the profit-sharing issue for the film. Until finally a deal was found and Spidey appeared in Civil war.
6. Doctor Strange: in the Multiverse of Madness
This film has not yet been released, in fact production has finished in April 2021.
As Spider Man, the problem was not during production but pre-production where there were disagreements between original director Scott Derrickson and Marvel Studios (again).
Scott Derrickson is experienced enough to make horror films, that’s why he wants to make Doctor Strange 2 with the nuances of horror, but Marvel Studios somewhat disagreed, discussions ensued until finally Scott Derrickson left this project.
Finally, Sam Raimi was chosen to work on the film and also used a horror theme.
