We might unfortunately have to say goodbye to Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Fans everywhere were shocked when news broke that Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures are set to part ways on the Spider-Man franchise.
The departure means removing Tom Holland's version of Peter Parker from future intertwined Marvel movies.
The possible departure is reportedly due to money.
Sony Pictures owns the rights to the Spider-Man films including Tobey Maguire's version and Andrew Garfield's version.
In 2015, Sony and Disney-owned Marvel Studios entered a deal where they share the character.
This meant Disney was able to integrate our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man into Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame.
According to Deadline, Disney wanted to do a 50/50 split including profits with Sony on future Spider-Man films, but Sony said no.
When Sony didn't agree to this deal, Disney removed Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios as producers of Sony's future Spider-Man movies and removed Spidey from the MCU.
We are still holding on to some hope because it's not completely a done deal.
Sony and Disney are still negotiating on the future of Spider-Man in the MCU.
If things don't work out with Marvel, this could mean that Tom Holland could be part of the Venom franchise.
What do you think about all of this?
