In recent news, it has been reported that the world’s favorite Superhero-Spider-man is not going to be part of the Marvel Universe anymore. This will result in the exit of Tom Holland as Spider-man from the MCU.
The disagreement arose after Disney proposed for a 50/50 co-financing agreement for all the future spider-man movies between the two. This proposal was blatantly declined by Sony, who wished to stick to the current agreement. But, Disney refused to partner any further with Sony.
Sony will have a hard time with this split since it will be losing half of its valuable franchise, while it won’t be so tough on Disney who owns all of the Spider-man merchandise. Few insider sources have mentioned that these talks have been going on for months.
According to a statement issued by Sony, it understood that Feige has been too busy with his other commitments with Disney. Sony praised Feige for his workmanship and thanked him for his guidance and help in the years they worked together.
Sony is planning on producing two more movies; however, speculations are on regarding if John Watts will be chosen to direct them.
Rumor has it that there are two more Spider-man movies that are being planned with Tom Holland as the lead and directed by John Watts.
Spider-man was first incorporated in MCU in 2015, when Disney, Sony, and Marvel Studios agreed to share the rights of all future Spider-man films.
Both Marvel and Sony had their biggest blockbusters released this year which set new box-office records. Sony released “Spiderman: Far Away From Home” which became its highest-grossing film of all times, while Marvel released “Avengers: Endgame” that became a superhit.
