The great success of Marvel’s Spider-Man is no longer MCU’s. The Spider-Man Far From Home is now the highest grossing film ever of Sony Pictures. Due to the disagreement between Marvel and Sony over a profit sharing structure and because of that Marvel Studios may be stepping away from the cross-studio partnership, as per the report of Deadline.
The Twitter is already trending with #SaveSpiderMan, as fans react to the fall out between Marvel Studio and Sony Pictures.
Yet, they haven’t publicly announced, not finalize, and people who close to deal are unauthorized to disclose any information regarding this problem. But the suggestion that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige may not produce future live-action Spider-Man movies and that the character itself might not appear in any more Marvel Cinematic Universe films quickly turned into a trending topic.
Sony Pictures hold rights to Marvel character from 1985, but since the partnership of Marvel with Disney in 2015, standalone Spider-Man movies were allowed to enter into other Marvel movies like Avengers: Endgame. It also allowed for Feige to serve as a producer on stand-alone Spider-Man movies like Far From Home.
The Spider-Man story was become more than ever when they made his Uncle relationship with Tony Stark in both Endgame and Far From Home. But as Marvel enters its “Phase 4,” Spider-Man also has no official MCU appearances planned.
Two standalone Spider-Man movies are, however, reportedly in the works from Sony which would bring back director Jon Watts and star Tom Holland. Sony has also created its own web of Spider-Man spinoffs, including the Oscar-winning animated feature Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and Venom.
Representatives from the two studios did not respond to requests for comment.
