Spider-Man could be disappearing entirely from future films set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed.
Reports emerged today that Sony ended a several months-long dispute with Disney and cut ties with Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige after Disney attempted to renegotiate a deal that would have seen Disney get a 50/50 co-financing stake on future Spider-Man projects. It turns out this dispute might actually just be over a producer credit and that negotiations are still ongoing. But according to the trade, not only could Kevin Feige be out from producing future Spider-Man films with Sony, but Tom Holland’s Spider-Man could also be out of the MCU entirely going forward.
Despite the fact that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man was being groomed to take center stage and fill the shoes of Iron Man in his most recent outing in Spider-Man: Far From Home, the split between Marvel and Sony could very well likely be mean that the version of Spider-Man played by Tom Holland will no longer be featured in future MCU films.
But what do you think? Could Sony’s decision to part ways with Kevin Feige mean the end of Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Let us know in the comments below!
Here is the official synopsis for Spider-Man: Far From Home:
Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man must step up to take on new threats in a world that has changed forever.
Directed by Jon Watts from a script written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, the film stars Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, Martin Starr, Numan Acar, J.B. Smoove, Oli Hill, Remy Hii, Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton, Jon Favreau, Cobie Smulders, and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is now playing in theaters. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on Tom Holland, Kevin Feige, and the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we learn it.
