Spider-Man No Extra: Spidey Exits the MCU as Sony and Disney Feud


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.

Deadline claims that the finish of the Disney-Sony collaboration suggests that Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige will no longer have any input into Spidey’s massive-screen adventures, and that the rest of the MCU will be off-limits to the webslinger going forward.

It is unclear what the finish of Disney and Sony’s Spider-Man deal suggests for the future of the MCU. Spider-Man: Far From House, which hit theaters in late June and dealt with Avengers: Endgame‘s quick aftermath, seemed to tease a quantity of upcoming MCU plotlines, and incorporated a shocking post-credits scene that could have set up Marvel’s subsequent comics-inspired crossover occasion.

Having said that, this is not the finish of the present iteration of Spider-Man. Sony nonetheless has two Spider-Man films in improvement with Spider-Man: Homecoming and Far From Home director John Watts, each of which are anticipated to star present Spider-Man actor Tom Holland. In addition, Sony is pushing ahead with Spider-Man spinoffs, such as a Venom sequel, Jared Leto’s Morbius, and a bunch of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse-associated projects.

We wouldn’t be shocked if Sony and Disney at some point worked issues out, either. So far, the partnership has worked out effectively for each organizations. 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. In addition, each studios just announced that Spider-Man: Far From House will return to theaters on Labor Day weekend with four minutes of new footage.

We’ll continue to update this story as far more data becomes readily available.
