Spider-Man star Tom Holland may have unfollowed Sony Pictures on Instagram following the news of the studio’s split with Disney over the franchise.
Earlier this week, it was revealed that Sony and Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige will no longer co-produce Tom Holland’s Spider-Man movies after Sony was unable to reach an agreement to continue its partnership with Disney. Since then, Tom Holland has been noticeably silent on the news of Disney and Sony cutting ties, with his first social media post making no mention of the situation and his second one only featuring photos of himself with his Avengers co-star Robert Downey Jr. on a hike.
However, MCU Cosmic’s Jeremy Conrad noted that Tom Holland is longer following Sony on his official Instagram account. Regardless, Sony is reportedly still planning to produce two more Spider-Man films with Tom Holland in the role.

Sony is planning two more Spider-Man films with Tom Holland but the actor could be disappearing entirely from future films set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Sony attempted to extend the original deal which gives Marvel 5% of first-dollar gross but Disney rejected this after the Mouse House originally tried to negotiate for a co-financing stake on future Spider-Man projects with Tom Holland. Sony ultimately opted to cut ties with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, who co-produced the last two Spider-Man films starring Tom Holland. The news comes just after Spider-Man: Far From Home became Sony’s highest-grossing film of all time with $1.109 billion at the worldwide box office. Here the official synopsis for the movie:
Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man must step up to take on new threats in a world that has changed forever.
