Everywhere, marvel fans are crying desperate tears. The character Spider-Man will no longer be part of the MCU after two successful films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel Studios divided ways with Sony, cutting the personality of Tom Holland out of the franchise efficiently. Spider-Man is one of Marvel’s most famous superheroes, and Marvel Studios are constantly running the box office, so what does that mean for the MCU?
Spider-Man: Far From Home at the worldwide box office earned more than $1 billion. Peter Parker has been appointed as the MCU’s primary focus for moving forward. Spider-Man was supposed to fill the position originating from Iron Man, according to Marvel chairman, Kevin Feige. In addition to his solo films, as Tony Stark did, Peter Parker was going to make appearances through various MCU films.
Marvel Studios did not announce a new Spider-Man film at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con. This confused some fans, but it wasn’t Marvel’s decision. It was up to Sony to promote and announce Spider-Man movies based on the previous contract between Sony and Marvel Studios. The agreement between Sony and Marvel was never stable, and since Spider-Man: Homecoming, fans were worried about an outcome like this.
Sony and Marvel Studios were unable to negotiate fresh terms of funding, according to reports. This implies that no future Spider-Man films will be produced by Kevin Feige. “Disney asked for a 50/50 co-financing arrangement between the studios for future Spider-Man films. Sony turned the bid flat down. Sony suggested that the arrangement be maintained under the present conditions where Marvel gets 5 percent of a gross first dollar, sources said. Disney rejected it, “as reported.
Feige’s last two movies have made grossing records broken. Avengers: Endgame is the highest-grossing film of all time, and Spider-Man: Far From Home is the highest-grossing film by Sony. Only time will say if the future Sony Spider-Man movies without Feige will be successful, but fans do not seem to be confident.
