No more Spider-Man in MCU As Marvel & Sony Part Ways; Devastated Fans Trend #SaveSpiderMan

There has been yet another blow for the fans of MCU. First Daredevil’s sequel was canned, then Iron Man departed leaving us with a lump in our throat with just four words – “I Love you 3000”. Now It's our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man to say goodbye to MCU as Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studious announced that they will not be involved in the production of Spider-Man movies. 

What this news really means that we will no longer get to Spider-Man in Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe films including crossovers from characters like Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man or Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury in future Spider-Man films.

The Walt Disney Company announced a deal to acquire Marvel Entertainment for $4.24 billion back in August 2009. The deal between Marvel Studios and Sony regarding Spider-Man came through in 2015. As a part of this deal, Spider Man could appear in crossover Marvel films, however the rights to the character remained with Sony which was also responsible for financing, distributing, and “final creative control.”

Shortly after Marvel and Sony joined hands, they got Tom Holland to play the role of Spider Man and he went on to part of three Disney films — Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame. He was also the part of two Marvel Studios-produced, Sony-owned solo films.

As per Hollywood site, Deadline, the recent for the fallout is that Sony rejected an offer from Disney that future Spider-Man films be "a 50/50 co-financing arrangement between the studios."

Coming back to Tom Holland, there are sources claiming that according to his original contract, he still has one solo film left, while Deadline’s report suggests that there he has two more Jon Watts-directed films in the works.

This news has come as a major blow for MCU and Holland fans and it was not surprising to see #SaveSpiderMan , Spider-Man, Disney, Sony, Tom Holland and Tony Stark all making top trends in Mumbai.
