Looks Like You Won't Be Seeing Spider-Man In The Marvel Cinematic Universe Anymore
It's like losing him in the snap all over again!
In breaking news out of Hollywood this Wednesday, Buzzfeed has confirmed that Disney's Marvel Studios are preparing to farewell Peter Parker from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
As the outlet reports, the decision was made when Sony and Disney-owned Marvel were unable to come to an agreement over future financing and profit splits for the character's films. Deadline states that Disney wanted to split investments and profit 50/50 - something Sony was not willing to agree to.
Although Tom Holland's Spider-Man has become an iconic, and well-loved, part of the MCU, the movie rights for the character belong to Sony Pictures. The only reason we were able to see Spidey in all those Marvel flicks was that the two studios came to an agreement to share the character back in 2015.
It's important to note that the recent standoff means Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige will be stepping away from any future Spider-Man films.
Feige produced both Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home.
What this means for any future Tom Holland Spidey productions, we can't exactly say. But it doesn't look he's going to be hanging out with the Avengers anytime soon.
BuzzFeed News has stated, however, that negotiations may still be playing out.
So, fingers crossed!
