The Sad Reason Spider-Man Will Be Cut From The MCU

  • Peter Parker continues to have bad luck with his parents.
    While his real mom and dad are long gone, Spider-Man's real-world guardians Disney and Sony have been disputing over how best to look after him.
    The web-flinging vigilante is a member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe thanks to two Tom Holland-starring films - 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming and 2019's Spider-Man: Far From Home. He's also made a handful of appearances in the MCU's ensemble movies - but he's always remained the property of Sony Pictures.
    For months now, Disney, Marvel Studios, and Sony have been in talks over how to split financial stakes in the Spider-Man franchise as they worked to update the shared custody deal they struck in 2015. That landmark agreement allowed Marvel to have access to the Spider-Man character while Sony retained ownership.
    The stand-off reportedly ended on August 20, when, according to Deadline, the two companies failed to reach an agreement.
    The inability to strike new terms in a deal, which would have seen Disney obtaining a co-financing stake in the property, means that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige will no longer produce Spider-Man films. Furthermore, Marvel will cease any involvement in the Holland-starring Spidey universe moving forward - meaning that Spider-Man is swinging away from the MCU and crawling back into Sony's web.
    Deadline's sources indicated that the talks ended because of a disagreement over money. Disney is said to have requested a 50 percent co-financing stake in future Spider-Man films - of which there are reportedly two, anticipated to feature both actor Tom Holland, and Jon Watts returning in the director's chair. The talks also involved Disney potentially extending that stake into other Spider-Man-adjacent films, like the growing Venom franchise.
    A 50 percent stake is a hefty increase from Marvel Studios' current share of the Spider-Man movie series, which is "five percent of first dollar gross" - or the money that a film makes during its first day out in theaters. Sony wanted to keep that deal intact, Disney didn't, and so Disney came forward with its own proposition.
    As Deadline's Mike Fleming Jr. put it, Sony executives, quote, "turned that offer down flat" - apparently not even approaching Disney with a counteroffer. According to the report, the studio had no interest in splitting ownership over what has become its most commercially successful franchise. It's probably not a coincidence that just a day before this news broke, Spider-Man: Far From Home officially edged out Skyfall to become Sony's highest-earning movie ever.
    Kevin Feige, a big fan of Spider-Man, reportedly had every intention of continuing to produce movies featuring the teen hero if Disney and Sony were able to renegotiate terms.
    Sony is clearly confident that the franchise has a bright future ahead without Feige or Marvel Studios involved in producing it.
    In addition to the now Sony-controlled Spider-Man sequels, the studio is confirmed to be working on a sequel to Venom directed by Andy Serkis, a Morbius: The Living Vampire movie starring Jared Leto, and a film centered on Kraven the Hunter. According to Deadline, they're also still working on that Black Cat/Silver Sable thing they've been trying to get made forever.
    The big question surrounding this news is how it will affect the MCU, which has heavily featured Spider-Man in its overarching narrative up to this point. In just a handful of movies, Holland's Spider-Man went from a spunky kid who played pinch hitter during one tense airport battle to a universe-travelling hero who would put his life on the line to save other people.
    Peter Parker also developed a deeply moving dynamic with Tony Stark, serving as his protégé-on-the-rise and standing as the closest thing to a son that Tony ever had. For Marvel fans, now it looks like they're both gone.
    It seems like Spider-Man will never again cross paths with other MCU heroes, and will instead spend his next few movies cozying up to characters in Sony's Spidey universe.

    Look for there to be another avengers move it will take at least 2 years and maybe even more. Hopefully they would have struck a deal by then. Sony said they were “disappointed” that the hero might no longer be able to appear in MCU films, but said that it hoped things “might change” in the future. I really hope they do because spider man is my favourite superhero and the mcu will not be the same without him

    Spidey needs to return. Sony just want money and they do not care about quality. The SUMC has just one movie and the MCU has Over 20. Morbius may become a good movie, but people do not seem to care about the next Jared Leto project. Sony has too many problems. They should invest on the projects they have for the animated spider-verse.

    Why don't tom Holland leave spiderman role when spiderman is going to sony . If Holland leaves sony would have no chance to reboot spiderman again which the won't do . As soon as diseny gets the rights of spidermans back . Tom holland should apply for the role again.
    No other reboot no other spiderman flop film by sony.

    I don't care how many people will talk about how greedy Disney is because even if they didn't own as many properties as Warner Media does, that won't save their live-action record that has been awful since the 1950s and even during the Renaissance era. Maybe we should stop having adaptations of books and fairy tales and actual original stuff, which Disney is capable of. Con Air? The Rock? Armageddon? Enemy of the State? I understand people will tell me that stuff is Touchstone or Hollywood but those are labels for Disney that really shouldn't have been used. They need to be trusted to make R-rated movies more than they are aside from Deadpool.

    JUST got him into the MCU and he’s already out I’m really disappointed I can’t imagine how Tom feels. I hope he still stays as Spiderman ( I’m sure he will but quite frankly I’d just be so uninterested in a 4th Spider-Man after him).

      Don't forget Warner Media, a company that also owns just as many properties or even more than Disney. HBO, Warner Brothers, Turner (CNN, TBS, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim). That said, even if Disney isn't greedy, they still have made inexcusable live-action films since the 1950s and I'm not counting remakes.
