Forums - Movies Discussion - Spider-Man no longer in the MCU after disagreement between Sony and Disney (UPDATE #2): Sony releases statement

https://deadline.com/2019/08/kevin-feige-spider-man-franchise-exit-disney-sony-dispute-avengers-endgame-captain-america-winter-soldier-tom-rothman-bob-iger-1202672545/

As reported on by deadline, Kevin Feige will no longer be producing anymore Spider-Man movies after no deal could be made between Sony and Disney. Now any future produced Spider-Man movies, whether they star Tom Holland or not, will not be related or set within the MCU and will be made entirely by Sony. 

Update#1: Apparently the talks might actually still be ongoing according to some other websites and people like Jeremy Conrad:

Update#2: It's official, no more MCU Spidey. Sony has now offered an official statement on the situation.

my take on this is good lord Sony is fucking dumb. Not only was their character just involved in the highest grossing film of all time (Avengers: Endgame), Spider-Man: Far From Home also became the highest grossing Spider-man film with $1B+ and the highest grossing Sony film ever. Literally all because of Marvel is the only reason this character has managed to shine again through all of this. Now they think they're hot shit and don't need them. Good luck with those other spider-man movies sony lmao, because that has totally worked out for you all the other times (into the spider-verse being the only exception). 

the ending of Far From Home just makes this even more of a bitch lol, guess we won't be seeing a proper conclusion to that 

edit: This was a pretty reactionary comment tbh and I think I was too quick to come to a conclusion before taking into account the entire situation based off the original article. While it's possible that Disney was just asking for too much for Sony to budge, and i'm not defending Disney if that's the case, according to the article it says that Sony flat out refused and didn't even try to make a counter offer. The fact that they didn't even at least attempt to come to a compromise or make a counter-offer is still stupid imo on their part after all the success that was given to them, but I realize there's probably more to it than that.

^This. Sony just flipped off Spider-Man fans everywhere. -_-



Some days I just blow up.

Fuck Sony. Like, I wasn't planning on watching Venom 2 or any of that shit, but there is no chance they will get any of my money for any of their Superhero movies now. Which sucks, because I really like Tom Holland and I'm sure this sucks for him more than anybody, but man....

Fuck Sony.



Disney wanted more than they got in the previous deal, Sony said no. I wouldn't say Sony is "fucking dumb".



Predictions (Made July 2019)

LTD: PS4 - 130m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 52m       2019 : PS4 - 15m, Switch - 18.8m, XBO - 4.8m        2020: Switch - 22m (Peak Year)

Except Disney and Marvel are the ones who have managed to get this character back to the spot he is currently in. Sony failed with rebooting the character not once but TWICE on their own. If they're the ones who were doing most if it then I wouldn't be surprised if they wanted more money for it. 

Again, how do you look at just the past few months with Avengers: Endgame and then Spider-Man: Far From Home and all that success and think "Nah, but we don't need Marvel". That's why Sony is dumb. 



So... are they just gonna' like, pretend Peter/Spidey died in the MCU and run along with that, or just forget he existed and have all the other characters that have met him act dumb about it all? Not sure how it's gonna' work going forward, but this really stinks!
