Sony Spider-Man MCU Deal Explained

The arrangement between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures to collaborate on Spider-Man movies is reportedly over, with Sony opting to not renew a deal that would have seen Marvel/Disney take 50% of any future Spider-Man movie profits in exchange for the creative guidance of producer and MCU boss Kevin Feige.

That means Spider-Man is effectively out of the MCU and back into his own solo movie universe overseen solely by Sony.

The Sony-Marvel deal has always been a head-scratcher for fans, right up until last month’s San Diego Comic-Con when fans were left wondering why Marvel didn’t announce a new Spidey film along with the rest of their Phase 4 slate. Given that talks between Marvel and Sony were deteriorating at that time, we now know why Spidey was a no-show at SDCC.

Why the Nintendo Switch Lite Has a True D-Pad and Why It’s Such a Big Deal

The Nintendo Switch Lite was announced today, and it features a true, honest-to-goodness D-Pad. The fact that the original Switch’s Joy-Con controllers do not has been point of contention for fans since its launch in 2017, as the four separate directional buttons aren’t as ideal as a true D-Pad for 2D games, retro games, and much more.

The Switch Lite will be released on September 20, 2019, for $ 199.99 USD and is designed specifically for handheld play. That means no kickstand, no dock, and no support for video output to TV whatsoever. While the addition of a D-pad is a boon to many fans, some may find themselves wondering “why now?” or “why hasn’t the Switch added them yet?”

The tour starts June 7 at The Forum in L.A. and includes more than 30 stops in the U.S. and Canada in June and July, including Madison Square Garden in New York, Prudential Center in New Jersey, American Airlines Arena in Miami, United Center in Chicago and Scotiabank Arena in Toronto.
Guess will provide custom pieces for Lopez’s back-up dancers and Lopez herself will wear Guess- and Marciano-branded pieces during fan meet-and-greets. On the merchandise side, Guess created a line of concert merchandise exclusive to the tour and to be sold within the venues. A few pieces from the line will also be sold in the company’s stores and online.

Dolly Parton Signs Global Licensing Deal With IMG to Develop Fashion, Accessories and Home

HELLO DOLLY: Considering the vastness of Dolly Parton’s business ventures, the fact that IMG is now her first exclusive global licensing representative is an eye-opener.
The eight-time Grammy winner, who has been a client in North America of IMG’s partner company WME since last year, plans to delve into fashion, jewelry, accessories and home goods through the new deal. The multiyear pact is set up to help the country music star develop a lifestyle brand. But the truth is, she already is that and more. Gucci’s Alessandro Michele designed a sleeveless jean jacket emblazoned with her name and image on the back for the luxury label’s spring 2019 collection.
Aside from knowing how to make a statement on stage — wigs, sequins, bright colors and body-accentuating silhouettes — Parton also grasps what it takes to execute those ensembles. She and her creative director and wardrobe designer Steve Summers have reportedly been known to create about 300 outfits each year — down to every shoe and accessories.
Beyond her 1.8 million Instagram followers, Parton presents to IMG a built-in fan base. Five years ago, she passed the 100-million mark for records sold, and Parton continues to churn out country music, books and all kinds

In the Spotlight: French Deal

Brand: French Deal
Backstory: Steeven Kodjia, a former professional hip-hop dancer, used to shop the vintage shops of New York searching out the most unique streetwear pieces he could find and resell them when he returned home to France. He soon attracted a following who appreciated his taste and eye for the unusual. And so in 2010, Kodjia decided it was time for him to create his own brand, one that would speak to a couture hip-hop customer — a market he didn’t feel was being addressed. He teamed up with Ian Mahinmi of the Washington Wizards, and Ousmane Dabo, a former soccer champion, to create French Deal that next year. The three share not only an affinity for high-end streetwear, but a common heritage: they’re all originally from West Africa and grew up in France, giving them a similar sensibility and purpose. The brand, which is custom only, soon gained a foothold with celebrities such as Khalid, Maejor, Quincy Brown, Evan Ross, and Ne-Yo, as well as several NBA athletes, including Mahinmi’s teammates Otto Porter, Tomas Satoransky and John Wall, and NFL player Victor Cruz. “From the beginning, I wanted a brand that told our story and that I could

William Middleton Strikes Deal With HarperCollins for Karl Lagerfeld Book

Well, that didn’t take long.
William Middleton, a former Paris bureau chief of WWD and W magazine, just signed a book deal with HarperCollins to write “an unconventional biography” of Karl Lagerfeld and how he turned himself into a cultural icon. Lagerfeld died Feb. 19.
Middleton, who met Lagerfeld in 1995, did many stories with him when he worked in Paris and developed a friendship along the way.  Middleton is the author of “Double Vision,” about the powerful art-world family headed by Dominique and John de Menil that was published last spring.
Middleton said he had proposed a book to Lagerfeld about a year ago, and the designer was not interested in delving into his past. “I don’t think the history of Karl is the most interesting part. There are some elements of his past that are interesting. But it’s really what he turned himself into that’s so fascinating. I didn’t want to do a normal biography,” he said.
Immediately after Lagerfeld died, Middleton wrote a three-page proposal and e-mailed his agent, Binky Urban at ICM. “By 9 a.m., she had me on the phone [with HarperCollins vice president and executive editor Sara Nelson] and we had a contract the next week. It all

Bonobos Signs PGA Golfer Justin Rose to Apparel Deal

Justin Rose, the number-two ranked PGA Tour player, is making a number of major changes before his 2019 season kicks off later this month.
On Thursday, he left his former apparel sponsor Adidas and jumped ship to Bonobos. Two days ago, he inked a 10-year equipment deal with Honma Golf, a Japanese equipment manufacturer seeking to gain a foothold outside its home country. He had previously been with Taylormade.
Bonobos’ signing of Rose is for a similar reason. The men’s e-commerce brand, which is now owned by Walmart, is also hoping to further make its mark in the golf world by aligning itself with a high-profile professional.
While financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, the marketing component of the agreement calls for Rose to wear Bonobos both on and off the course.

“When we decided to draw attention to our golf line, we wanted to work with someone who not only was a great representation on the course but in everyday life as well,” said Micky Onvural, chief executive officer of Bonobos. “Justin’s presence and power in the game of golf was a huge draw for us as a brand. He brings a level of credibility to who we are and what

Sears Inks Real Estate Deal for Certain Sites for $62M

Sears Holdings Corp. is selling a combination of real estate assets to Amerco Real Estate Co. for $ 62 million.
The retailer said it had been in talks with potential buyers for certain assets, and had determined to sell to Amerco just before its voluntary Chapter 11 petition for bankruptcy court approval on Oct. 15. The discussions yielded an agreement in principal, but no executed agreement memorializing the contract’s terms until this past Thursday.
The property that will be sold includes 12 parcels of land that either is now occupied by or in the past housed a Kmart store and one location houses a Sears store. Included in the transaction are six commercial leases, all of which are leased to Sears or one of its debtor affiliates.
In a court document seeking approval for the sale, Sears said “three locations are ‘dark’ and six locations have negative EBITDA [earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization]. Although the remaining four locations are generating positive EBITDA, the purchase price being paid by [Amerco] warrants proceeding with the sale.”
The parties have entered three-month occupancy agreements for 10 of the 13 parcels that provide for Sears to pay related real estate taxes and water and sewer charges and

Under Armour Signs Embiid to Endorsement Deal

For Joel Embiid, his newly inked deal with Under Armour is going to be “bigger than just shoes.”
Turning aside other reported suitors including Puma and New Balance, the center for the Philadelphia 76ers instead opted for a five-year apparel and footwear endorsement deal with Under Armour. He had previously been sponsored by Adidas.
At Under Armour, Embiid joins Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, skier Lindsey Vonn, ballerina Misty Copeland and others. The terms of the deal were not disclosed but ESPN reported that the endorsement will make him the highest paid center in the NBA.
In a first-person account on Under Armour’s web site posted on Wednesday, Embiid wrote: “When I sat down with Under Armour, one of the first things we talked about was how this can be bigger than just shoes, bigger than just basketball. I want to help change people’s lives.
“Basketball has given me everything, but it has to be bigger than basketball. That was the first thing that I said to Under Armour, and they were behind it 100 percent. This isn’t about a shoe deal. I mean, listen…I’m gonna make sure they design some shoes as pretty as I am. Don’t

Activist Investor Questions Perry Ellis Acquisition Deal

The battle for Perry Ellis International might be heating up again.
On Thursday, Water Island Capital disclosed a 5.5 percent ownership stake in the company and in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing said it “does not believe that the merger consideration” by Feldenkreis Holdings LLC “represents fair value to the Issuer’s shareholders.” It went on to say that it is “considering various options and remedies to maximize the value of its shares in connection with the merger.”
As reported, in mid-August, the Perry Ellis Special Committee ended discussions with Randa Accessories which had submitted a higher $ 444 million offer for the company and reiterated a commitment to a $ 437 million transaction it inked with former chief executive officer George Feldenkreis to take the company private. Randa had offered $ 28.90 a share to Feldenkreis’ $ 27.50.
The special committee said the decision was a response to news that an inbound licensor would not approve a change in control of the license to Randa should it buy the company. It said the inbound licensor was the company’s largest, leaving speculation that it was Nike Inc., which has a business with Perry Ellis valued at more than $ 100 million.

Primark Seals Deal With Unicef to Help Cambodian Children

CHILDREN’S HOUR: Primark and Unicef have inked a three-year partnership aimed at contributing to the latter’s work in education and emergency response for vulnerable children.
Primark confirmed it has committed $ 4.5 million to fund an education program enabling vulnerable children to attend and remain in school in Cambodia.
Planned activities include targeted support for children from minority language groups, girls, and children with disabilities; investment in school sanitation facilities; and training for teachers in positive discipline approaches.
Primark has committed a further $ 1.5 million to Unicef’s worldwide emergency response operations. In 2017, the aid organization responded to 337 humanitarian situations in 102 countries. In most humanitarian crises, children are most at risk, with women and children comprising 60 to 80 percent of the affected population.
“Unicef is the world’s largest humanitarian organization for children with operations in more than 190 countries,” said Unicef Ireland’s executive director, Peter Power.
He said the organization relies significantly on the private sector “to help fund our life-saving and life-changing operations for children and we are pleased to welcome Primark’s generous contribution to this work.”
