It may be time for Spider Man to give up on Audi and drive in in a new Sonata as Hyundai and Sony recently signed a 'multi-picture promotional partnership' which could have cars made by the Korean manufacturer figuring prominently in movies produced by the entertainment company.

"Hyundai Motor’s new models and technologies will be featured in five upcoming Sony Pictures films including Uncharted (July 2021); the sequel to Spider-Man: Far From Home (November 2021); the sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (October 2022); and other tentpoles to be determined," a release from the car maker announced.
