Is Spider-Man Being Kicked Out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
It appears that Spider-Man may be kicked out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The two studios, Sony and Disney/Marvel could not come to an agreement. So there will be no collaborating on any Spider-Man movies going forward.
Sony has since placed the blame firmly at Marvel’s doorstep, releasing an official statement saying the studio is “disappointed, but respect Disney’s decision not to have [Kevin Feige] continue as a lead producer of our next live action Spider-Man film.”
According to Deadline, “All this was reflected as factors in Deadline’s break of an important and widely regurgitated story. But sources maintain that Feige’s exit was about money; it was about Disney seeking the 50/50 co-fi stake as the price for Marvel and Feige’s continued guiding hand that resulted in the delivery of Sony’s biggest grossing film ever. Sony declined to meet those terms. It was an aggressive stance by Disney, which already owns the merchandise on Spider-Man, and a tough nut for Sony to swallow, giving up half of its most valuable franchise. But these talks had been going on for some time. Had Sony agreed to Disney’s ask, Marvel and Feige would not have withdrawn from the Spider-Man films, sources said.”
