Tom Holland's Spider-Man Exits the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Spider-Man will no longer be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Sony and Disney were unable to finalize an agreement to continue their partnership.

The Spider-Man franchise had been part of the Sony Pictures family before Disney launched the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the studios formed a partnership so that the character could join the cinematic world.

Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man launched the partnership between the studios with his appearance in Captain America: Civil War and he appeared in five MCU movies overall.

Disney received five percent of first dollar gross for Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home, but the studio wanted a bigger percentage moving forward. Sony opted to keep the five percent in place and the studios were unable to reach an agreement on the matter.

Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, will no longer serve as a producer on any future Spider-Man movies from Sony and Tom will likely not appear in any future Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, according to THR.

It’s important to note that Tom will still return as Spider-Man in future movies, but they will likely not be connected to the other Marvel movies.

Variety reports that a deal could still be reached, so maybe if enough fans speak out, they’ll come to an agreement!
