Looks like our friendly neighborhood slider is swinging away from its Marvel home.
Although 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming and this summer’s Far From Home were a success at the box office Sony and the Disney-owned Marvel have come to a stalemate regarding future films.
This means Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is no longer on board to produce any new Spider-Man solo films which in turn means that Spider-Man will no longer appear in any future MCU films or series nor will any Marvel heroes take part in future Spider-Man projects.
Disney had reportedly asked to share co-financing on future Spider-Man films 50-50, while Sony wanted the financing arrangement to stay roughly the same as it has been on Homecoming and Far From Home. Sony still holds the rights to Spider-Man and and connected comics characters, but several years ago, the studio struck a deal with Marvel to allow Spidey to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Thanks to that partnership, Holland’s Peter Parker made his debut in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War and played key roles in Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame. Meanwhile, Feige signed on to help produce Sony’s solo Spider-Man films, bringing over MCU characters like Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man and Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury.
The news comes days after it was revealed that Far From Home has surprised Skyfall to be Sony’s highest grossing film of all time. A solo Spider-Man sequel has yet to be officially announced but both Holland and director Jon Watts are reportedly committed to make a future film for Sony.
