Sony May Have Pulled Spider-Man Out of the MCU

Tom Holland Spider-Man

Sony is reportedly working on two more Spider-Man movies with Tom Holland and director Jon Watts, sand Disney.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige won't produce any further Spider-Man films because of an inability by Disney and Sony Pictures to reach new terms that would have given the former a co-financing stake going forward. While 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming was a box office success, outgrossing every previous Spider-Man movie except for Spider-Man 3, this summer's sequel Spider-Man: Far from Home is a genuine box office smash to the tune of $1.109 billion worldwide.

For now, however, I think Sony can rest easy knowing it made the right call in bringing Marvel in to help reboot its prized superhero possession.

Sony reportedly has two more Spider-Man films in development which are both meant to have Tom Holland and Spider-Man: Far From Home director Jon Watts return.

Sony has walked away from negotiations before, only to return to the bargaining table with Marvel.

Spider-Man: Far From Home has surpassed the worldwide collections of Skyfall to become the biggest global earner for Sony. Let us know in the comment section below! Internationally, Far From Home is the highest-grossing film in the Spidey catalog.

Directed by Jon Watts from a script written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, the film stars Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, Martin Starr, Numan Acar, J.B. Smoove, Oli Hill, Remy Hii, Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton, Jon Favreau, Cobie Smulders, and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. It's not yet clear whether this means Spider-Man will no longer appear in any of the other Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, but with Feige no longer guiding the creative side of the webslinger, it would be hard to reconcile any plans Sony might have for Spidey if they don't jibe with the future of the MCU.
