Marvel lost the little hold it had over Spider-Man in the MCU. A report by Deadline on Tuesday confirmed that the company's president Kevin Feige and Spider-Man franchise owner Sony Pictures will no longer work together.

According to the publication, a financial “dispute” between Disney and Sony resulted in Feige’s exit as Spider-Man producer.
“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,” a Sony spokesperson told Deadline.
The move could mean Tom Holland’s Spider-Man as we know him in The Avengers, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man Far From Home will become a thing of the past.
Of course, Marvel fans are not thrilled at the loss of one of the MCU’s key characters, using #SaveSpiderMan on Twitter to voice their feelings.
Sony taking Spider-Man out of the MCU is a disrespect to Tony Stark's legacy. It's hard to imagine the next phase of Marvel without Spidey. I hope Disney and Sony figure this out in the future.#SaveSpiderManpic.twitter.com/LHYBn2yKSE
