The Sad Reason Spider-Man Will Be Cut From The MCU
While his real mom and dad are long gone, Spider-Man’s real-world guardians Disney and Sony have been disputing over how best to look after him.
The web-flinging vigilante is a member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe thanks to two Tom Holland-starring films – 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming and 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home. He’s also made a handful of appearances in the MCU’s ensemble movies – but he’s always remained the property of Sony Pictures.
For months now, Disney, Marvel Studios, and Sony have been in talks over how to split financial stakes in the Spider-Man franchise as they worked to update the shared custody deal they struck in 2015. That landmark agreement allowed Marvel to have access to the Spider-Man character while Sony retained ownership.
The stand-off reportedly ended on August 20, when, according to Deadline, the two companies failed to reach an agreement.
