Well, this sucks.
Sony has ended its deal with Marvel, according to a new report from Deadline,
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige won’t produce future Spider-man movies after failing to make a deal with Sony. According to Deadline, Disney wants future Spider-Man movies to have 50/50 financing agreement. Sony turned that down. (According to Deadline, under the current deal, Marvel and Disney receive around 5% of first dollar gross.)
What makes this tricky is that there are two Spider-Man movies in the works with star Tom Holland and director Jon Watts attached.
On Twitter, the reaction to this news was quite hostel:
