Spider-Man and Tom Holland: Sony 'disappointed' over Disney split

Spider-Man Reportedly No Longer in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

A falling-out between two of Hollywood's biggest studios would mean Marvel President Kevin Feige won't be lending his touch to future Spider-Man films, and the character won't appear in Disney's Marvel films - a series dubbed the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or MCU, that's generated more than US$22.5 billion globally.

Disney asked that future Spider-Man films be a 50/50 co-financing arrangement between the studios, but Sony turned down the offer. Of course, Spider-Man solo pictures are not the only thing Sony Pictures has going right now, as the studio is looking to create its own successful franchise of Marvel-based films after Venom did gangbusters at the box office.

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

A statement released by Sony said the company was "disappointed" by Disney's call for a greater stake in the Spider-Man films.

Sony's representative echoed that, saying Sony was "grateful for his help and guidance and appreciate the path he has helped put us on, which we will continue". It's possible that your average fan may not notice a difference between those two movies and Spider-Man: Far From Home and Spider-Man: Homecoming, both of which were made under the Sony-Marvel agreement. Marvel only received a minuscule amount off the top of the first weekend's gross, as well as Disney retaining merchandising rights. Watts and Holland are part of the creative template for the upcoming Spider-Man films, along with producer Amy Pascal. This deal gave Marvel Studios the access to feature Spider-Man in different MCU movies, including Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and more recently, Avengers: Endgame.

As per reports by Variety, Deadline and other global outlets, Spider-Man's future in the MCU seems gloomy.

It seems as though Spider-Man as a character may be leaving the Marvel Cinematic Universe, leaving Tom Holland's role as the character up in the air. Are fans of the MCU ready and willing to support Spider-Man outside of Feige's steady and knowledgeable hands? Yes, the friendly neighbourhood superhero, who won our hearts with his bond with Tony Stark aka Iron Man, could be kissing the Marvel world goodbye and all this over some money.
