Spider-Man swings out of the MCU amid Disney-Sony battle over financing

Billionaires can't agree on a deal

It was just weeks ago when Marvel and Disney were celebrating Spider-Man: Far From Home‘s billion dollar box office haul, which now looks like it will be the last time the studios will be championing the web-slinger.

Marvel Studios will no longer produce any Spider-Man movies, following the news that Disney and Sony Pictures could not reach terms on a co-financing deal to share the character, Deadline reports.

Tom Holland’s Spider-Man arrived in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the 2016 film Captain America: Civil War, before appearing in a standalone film Spider-Man: Homecoming, as well as turns in both Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.

Marvel and Disney were rumoured to have at least two more Spider-Man films in the works before the news broke. Sony released its own animated Spider-Man film last year, the widely celebrated Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse.

Whatever the case, it’s bad news for fans of the MCU. Somebody right this wrong!
