If you were clinging to some last-minute-rush-to-the-airport-bypass-security-(because love)-sort of grand gesture in the Disney Sony debacle, I’m sorry; Spider-Man’s plane already left.
Tony Vinciquerra, Chairman and CEO of Sony Pictures, has ended the speculation and confirmed that Spider-Man will not be part of the MCU in the near future, because they couldn’t come to an agreement with Disney.
This doesn’t mean Tom Holland has to remove his spidey pants. He still gets to be Spider-Man, just all by himself, over at Sony. So that’s awkward, with that whole Iron Man situation and the way Spider-Man: Far From Home ended. Are the MCU characters just not going to talk about it?
The only hope we really have, now, of Spider-Man being part of the Avengers, is that maybe Disney and Sony will learn to play nice while Disney is busy with all the other non-Avengers content they have planned for the next fifty seven years. We’ve still got to get through things like Black Widow, Thor: Love and Thunder, Black Panther II, the Blade reboot, and a mystery Fantastic Four movie, and the next Avengers hasn’t even made the list yet.
