It is more than. Spider-Man is no longer portion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Sources at Deadline claim that the partnership amongst Sony Photos, which owns the film rights to Spider-Man and all connected characters, and Marvel Studios, which controls the rest of the MCU, has been terminated, successfully ending Peter Parker’s time as a member of each the Avengers and Marvel’s shared cinematic superhero universe.
The culprit, as generally, is income. Disney was rumored to be pushing for a new deal that would have offered the enterprise a co-financing stake in future Spider-Man films. Sony refused to agree to the terms, successfully ending the deal that permitted Spider-Man to join Iron Man, Captain America, the Hulk, and other heroes on the silver screen.

Spider-Man: Far From House, a joint Sony and Marvel production, not too long ago became Sony’s highest-grossing film ever, whilst Avengers: Endgame, in which Spider-Man plays a important part, broke Avatar‘s record to come to be the largest film of all time just a couple of weeks ago.
