Disney CEO Bob Iger says that the feud between his company and Sony Pictures regarding the future of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has ended.
Earlier today, Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios officially announced that they were reteaming to produce the third Spider-Man film with Tom Holland after a public divorce regarding a financial dispute between the two studios. This means that Kevin Feige will once again produce a Spider-Man film with Sony Pictures and Tom Holland will remain part of the MCU continuity.
Following the announcement, the Disney CEO took to Twitter to express his excitement and give thanks to Sony for the new agreement:

In August, MCU fans were caught by surprise when it was announced that Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios were parting ways on the third Tom Holland-starring Spider-Man film. Reports claim that Sony wanted to renew the contract under the same terms of agreement with Disney, in which Tom Holland was permitted to swing alongside other Avengers in Marvel Studios’ films while Sony retained the distribution rights to standalone Spider-Man films. The previous agreement allowed Sony to receive 95% of the box office gross while Disney earned the remaining 5% and held onto the merchandising rights to the character.
After over a month of this public feud between Sony and Disney, it appears that they have come to terms with a new agreement for at least one more standalone Spider-Man film for Tom Holland and another appearance in the MCU in the near future.
