🕷#SaveSpiderMan | Sony Pictures announced the end of Kevin Feige’s involvement in the Spider-Man franchise

Spider-Man Will No Longer Be Shared by Marvel and Sony

(Disney Magical Kingdom Blog - August 21, 2019) In recent months, The Walt Disney Company has been seeking for 50% co-financing arrangement between the Sony and Marvel Studios for future Spider-Man films.  Both stakeholders refused to give ground and ended with letting Spider-Man franchise out of Marvel Studios.

Disney-Sony Marvel Studios & Kevin Feige’s Involvement in Spider-Man

As the Sony Pictures official statement stated, "Much of today’s news about Spider-Man has mischaracterized recent discussions about Kevin Feige’s involvement in the franchise. We are disappointed, but respect Disney’s decision not to have him continue as a lead producer of our next live-action Spider-Man film.".  This exemplifies the following consequences:

Sony pulls Spider-Man out of the MCU official statement

1.) Tom Holland's Peter Parker/Spider-Man, at this stage, would NOT be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movie (not a part of Marvel Studio’s Spider-Man: Homecoming; Spider-Man: Far From Home universe)

2.) Marvel Studio will NOT produce any further Spider-Man film for now

3.) Sony Pictures CANNOT include the costume design, MCU characters (e.g. Nick Fury, MJ, Ned) in their upcoming Spider-Man standalone

4.) Disney XD's TV shows "Marvel's Spider-Man: Maximum Venom" will be affected

5.) Marvel might reduce the advertising in Spider-Man related merchandise

6.) Video game licenses "Marvel's Spider-Man" on Playstation 4 might be affected as the game is part of the marketing campaign for the Spider-Man franchise (this might hinder the project development, even though it is determined by Sony Interactive Entertainment, not Sony Pictures)

Deadline reported that there was no progression in reaching new terms between Sony Pictures and The Walt Disney Company, which resulted in making this announcement.

Sony Pictures also stated, "We hope this might change in the future, but understand that the many new responsibilities that Disney has given him – including all their newly added Marvel properties – do not allow time for him to work on IP they do not own".

The fact that Disney acquires the 20th Century's properties does not contribute to this decision.  Back in 2018 mid, Disney officially initialed the buyout negotiations.  With a $71.3 million agreement, all 20th Century's franchise ranging from X-Men and Fantastic Four, Avatar to The Simpsons, are parts of Disney's properties.  Other intellectual properties and a handful of movie studios and television channels are now managed by The Walt Disney Company.

As Kelvin Feige mentioned that the involvement of Fantastic Four and X-Men will be surfaced at least 4 to 5 years.  Kelvin Feige has been discussing for months to come to an agreement.  Despite the partnership has to be ended as well as his involvement, Kelvin Feige has plans for Spider-Man in Phase 4, which shows no evidence of diminishing Spider-Man's role.

Jeremy Renner (MCU's Clint Barton, aka Hawkeye in Avengers: Endgame and upcoming Disney+ "hawkeye") invoked the name of Stan Lee on Twitter to suggest Sony to resolve the dispute.

Spider-Man out of Marvel Cinematic Universe after Disney split with Sony

Spider-Man: Far From Home made over $1 billion at the box office and became Sony’s top-grossing film ever.  It was no surprise when it came to a popular and beloved webhead.  This Spider-Man incarnation was introduced in 2016 Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man: Homecoming grossed $880 million worldwide in the following year.

This news not only is overwhelming for a lot of fans, but also the audience in the theatre.  When Spidey is not around in the MCU with his friends, and neglect the history of building the sinister six.  No matter how far Spidey will go in the future, the franchise will certainly receive a huge impact from the fanbase.  Stay tuned for any update.

Spider-Man: Far From Home, directed by Jon Watts is the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe film as the closure of Phase 3.  Other exciting Marvel Studios projects include Black Widow (May 1, 2020), and The Eternals (November 6, 2020) will hit theatre next year.  In 2021, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (February 12, 2021), Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (May 7, 2021) and Thor: Love and Thunder (November 5, 2021) will be coming in the following year.

Disney+ series: The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (2020), WandaVision (2021), Loki (2021), What If? (2021) and Hawkeye (2021)
