Spider-Man allegedly pulled from MCU over Disney-Sony spat

Tom Holland in Spider Man Far From Home

If a deal can not be reached, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige will not produce future Spider-Man films, effectively removing Tom Holland's Spider-Man from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

A statement from Sony, as quoted by Deadline, said Marvel President Kevin Feige might not continue as the lead producer for future Spider-Man films.

Sony has released a statement, "Much of today's news about Spider-Man has mischaracterized recent discussions about Kevin Feige's involvement in the franchise". Sony said that it did "not allow time for him to work on IP [Intellectual Property] they do not own".

Sony has now responded to their unexpected fallout with Disney as the fans shared their disappointment on social media with their Save Spider-Man and Save Spidey campaign. That was 9 years before the Marvel Cinematic Universe kicked off with "Iron Man" and became a worldwide sensation, with Feige shepherding 23 blockbuster hits. MCU is looking to bring in Deadpool into the picture to help fans forget everything about Spider Man's unfortunate exit from MCU. Without the MCU tie, it's unclear how the future films will play out. Due to this, Sony has pulled out the film from Disney's Marvel and Kevin is no longer the producer.

The deal meant Disney would co-produce and share profits from films featuring Spider-Man.

Joe shared the video on his Instagram with the caption that read, "Couldn't have asked for a better night, thank you all so much". Nick , 26, wore a black tux to the event, matching his wife Chopra Jonas , who was in a sparkling fringed black dress.

According to the Marvel Cinematic Universe schedule, there are supposed to be two more Spider-Man films with Tom Holland as the lead and Jon Watts as director.

Sony and Disney have previously worked together on Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home, which grossed over $1.1 billion at the global box office.

It's not entirely clear what the next few Spider-Man movies will look like, though there's always the chance that Sony might opt to roll the character into their existing lineup, which includes films centering on Venom, Kraven the Hunter, Silver Sable and Black Cat. Sony is believed to have proposed keeping the arrangement under the current terms, which stipulate that Marvel receives about 5% of first-dollar gross and all merchandising revenues.

In case you're wondering why both production giants can't come to terms with each other, well, apparently Marvel has been receiving only five per cent of your friendly neighbourhood superhero's movie earnings.
