Spider-Man Will No Longer Be Part Of The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Sony and Disney could not come to a mutual agreement due to Disney’s demand of having greater shares
Spider-Man has a new enemy, and it’s probably his most fearsome one yet.
The new planned Tom Holland-starrer Spider-Man films could be put on a long halt, or even worse, it could be ended altogether. A dispute between Disney, Marvel’s parent company and Sony, the studio that owns the rights to the comic book character, has threatened the future of new Spider-Man movies.
Sony released a statement on Tuesday night which said the company was “disappointed” by Disney’s demand for a greater share in the Spider-Man films and by its proposal to minimise Marvel president Kevin Feige’s involvement in the movies.
“Much of today’s news about Spider-Man has mischaracterised recent discussions about Kevin Feige’s involvement in the franchise,” said the statement. “We are disappointed, but respect Disney’s decision not to have him continue as a lead producer of our next live-action Spider-Man film.
Hawkeye himself, Jeremy Renner took to Instagram to share his thoughts on the matter.
But this might not be as bad as you think. Yes, we probably won’t be seeing Spider-Man make an appearance in any upcoming Marvel movie, but Spider-Man’s franchise can still go on without a hitch. Spider-Man: Far From Home solely relied on Spider-Man and didn’t have any other veteran Marvel superhero like Iron Man to help him out. So, when it comes to the smooth continuation of the franchise, we’re good. But coming to the character of Spider-Man himself, Sony will most probably not replace Tom Holland to play the superhero’s role. The real concern now is if Holland still wants to play Spider-Man with Sony now pulling all the strings.
