MCU, Disney Say Goodbye To Spider-Man
Up until the moment it came across the feed, many fans held out hope. After all, “How could Spider-Man leave the Marvel Cinematic Universe?” But in the end, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige admitted it was never meant to last.
Entertainment Weekly reported that the required deal between Disney and Sony couldn’t be reached. Peter Parker is no longer part of the MCU.
Spider-Man Leaves The MCU
“I’m feeling about Spider-Man gratitude and joy,” Feige told EW. “We got to make five films within the MCU with Spider-Man: two standalone films and three with the Avengers. It was a dream that I never thought would happen.
“It was never meant to last forever,” he added. “We knew there was a finite amount of time that we’d be able to do this, and we told the story we wanted to tell, and I’ll always be thankful for that.”
Tom & Spidey Will Continue With Sony
Reached for comment backstage at D23, where he debuted footage for his upcoming film Onward alongside former co-star Chris Pratt — Spidey himself, Tom Holland said, “Basically, we’ve made five great movies,” Holland told EW. “It’s been five amazing years. I’ve had the time of my life. Who knows what the future holds?”
And with that, Holland delivered — perhaps — the only good news to come out of this story (at least for MCU fans).
“All I know is that I’m going to continue playing Spider-Man and having the time of my life,” said Holland, hopefully. “It’s going to be so fun, however we choose to do it.
“The future for Spider-Man will be different, but it will be equally as awesome and amazing, and we’ll find new ways to make it even cooler.”
