Spider-Man Might Be Out Of The Marvel Cinematic Universe

This is potentially HUGE news for Marvel fans:  Spider-Man might not be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe anymore.

As you probably know, Marvel doesn’t own the film rights to the character, Sony does.  But several years ago, the two studios made a deal to SHARE Spider-Man, so they could make him part of the MCU.

And he became a HUGE part of it.  But Marvel wanted a bigger piece of the pie, Sony said no, and now . . . as it currently stands . . . the deal is OVER.

Sony is still developing two more “Spider-Man” movies with TOM HOLLAND, plus a “Venom” sequel and other films involving Spider-Man characters. But extracting him from the MCU is gonna take some Dr. Strange-level magic.  He’s been a major part of the universe since “Captain America: Civil War”.  Imagine Marvel having to move forward pretending he was never there.

On top of that, the two “Spider-Man” movies, “Homecoming” and “Far From Home”, are intertwined with the MCU.  The two villains he faced, The Vulture and Mysterio, were both fueled by their hatred of Tony Stark.

Plus, Tony MADE all of Spider-Man’s suits . . . and he was even IN “Homecoming”.  I don’t know how you retcon that.

Now, there are some “sources” who say both sides are still talking and it’s not over yet.  So maybe they’ll come to an agreement.

The mythologies are so intertwined at this point, it’s hard to see how either studio could continue without the other . . . so it’s hard to believe either would be willing to just end the partnership.
