Tom Holland's Role in Marvel Cinematic Universe Is Likely Over

However, Sony refused the deal and wanted to maintain the current one where Disney would receive 5% of the first dollar gross.

As reported by Deadline, Sony is bringing the Tom Holland-starring Far From Home back into theatres for Labour Day weekend in the US and Canada on August 29.

I won't pretend to have a handle on all the reams of legal licensing agreements that allowed Spider-Man to appear in Disney's MCU movies, but here's a brief recap of the situation: Sony licensed with Marvel Studios and Disney for the Spider-Man character to appear in Disney films like Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Endgame.

Spider-Man will no longer be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Sony and Disney were unable to finalize an agreement to continue their partnership.

The inclusion of Spider-Man in the MCU was a win-win for fans and Disney.

But the movie starring Tom Holland as the web-spinning superhero may be the last in the franchise to be co-produced by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.

On Monday, Sony announced that Spider-Man: Far From Home had eclipsed the Bond film Skyfall with its worldwide box office gross of with a worldwide haul of $1.109 billion. Even so, Sony is clearly confident that the franchise has a bright future ahead without Feige, Marvel, or anyone at the House of Mouse involved in producing it. And, of course, there's the entire Phase 4 of the MCU to look forward to. The critical success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the praise from fans is evidence of this. Peter Parker also developed a deeply moving dynamic with Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), serving as his protégé-on-the-rise and the closest thing to a son that Tony ever had prior to his death in Avengers: Endgame.

Many seem to be complaining as a way to keep Spider-Man in the MCU (for the record, the companies are still in negotiations so there is some hope left), but others appear to be completely serious about the boycott.
