No More MCU Spidey! Sony, Marvel Studios End 'Spider-Man' Partnership
We reported yesterday that Spider-Man: Far From Home just became the highest-grossing movie of all time for Sony Pictures. Now, in a shocking turn of events that will make you go "holy sh**!", Sony has reportedly pulled out of its partnership with Marvel Studios, effectively ending Spider-Man's run in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
According to Deadline who first broke out the news, it was due to "an inability by Disney and Sony Pictures to reach new terms that would have given the former a co-financing stake going forward."
Our favorite wall-crawler made his much-anticipated MCU debut in 2016 via Captain America: Civil War and has since appeared in other blockbuster movies such as Spider-Man: Homecoming, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home.
No official word yet as to what happens to Tom Holland and the rest of the cast but what does this mean for the character's future and the MCU's continuity? We aren't very thrilled about this, to say the least.
