Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will not be seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in future films, as the deal between Disney and Sony fell through. Reportedly the two studios were unable to meet at a middle ground.
Despite Spider-Man: Far From Home broke all the records for Sony and become their highest-grossing film till date.
Reports suggest that there had been a dispute between the two studios for months now over the co-financing stakes. Marvel Studios owned by Disney had creative control of the Spider-Man films but they were only receiving a meager 5 percent of the first-dollar gross. On the other hand, Disney was looking for a 50/50 co-financing arrangement between the two studios for going forward.
Sony released an official statement, which reads:
“Much of today’s news about Spider-Man has mischaracterized recent discussions about Kevin Feige’s involvement in the franchise.
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.
We hope this might change in the future, but understand that the many new responsibilities that Disney has given him – including all their newly added Marvel properties – do not allow time for him to work on IP they do not own.
Kevin is terrific and we are grateful for his help and guidance and appreciate the path he has helped put us on, which we will continue”.
Over this latest development, Hawkeye Jeremy Renner has asked Sony to return Spider-Man back to MCU as fans trend #SaveSpiderMan on Twitter.
OG Avenger Hawkeye aka Jeremy Renner took to his Instagram account and posted a photo of his character from Avengers: Endgame asking Sony to return Spider-Man back to Marvel.
He captioned his post, “Hey @sonypictures we want Spider-Man back to @therealstanlee and @marvel please, thank you #congrats #spidermanrocks# #please”.
This comes as a huge shocker for all the Spider-Man fans, disappointed by this development, many have taken to Twitter:
I’m lost and confused but I swear if IRON MAN DIED AND PASSED HIS LEGACY ONTO THE ANGEL THAT IS TOM HOLLAND ALL FOR IT TO BE FUCKED UP I- PUNCHES WILL BE THROWN. PEOPLE WILL BE SUED. BUILDINGS WILL BE RAIDED. Together we HAVE TO #SaveSpiderMan pic.twitter.com/2xZmUyrwpV
