‘Spider-Man’s Fans Are Not Ready For ‘Uncle Ben’s’ Fate If He Leaves The MCU
By Izza Sofia, 21 Aug 2019
The friendly neighborhood ‘Spider-Man’ could be exiting the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as Disney and Sony are struggling to reach an agreement.
Sony owns Spider-Man’s film rights while Disney controls rights to superhero characters in the MCU. The Washington Post however, cites a Sony representative that the two companies are in a dispute due to “producer credit,” adding that “negotiations are ongoing.”
According to Deadline, Marvel boss Kevin Feige will no longer be part of Spider-Man’s creative input and Sony will take charge of it.
The disagreement purportedly surfaced when Disney desired to have a “50/50 financing arrangement” with Sony, which Sony turned down.
Spider-Man movies in the MCU have been highly profitable, with Spider-Man: Far From Home being the highest-grossing film for Sony.
Fans aren’t reacting too well with the news, with many expressing misery over the fate of ‘Peter Parker’, played by Tom Holland, in the MCU. Others are fearful of going through the death of ‘Uncle Ben’ for the umpteenth time. Check out responses from viewers below.
I’m sad to hear of us losing Spider-Man in the mcu, Tom has done a phenomenal job portraying Peter for the last three years, and Its sad to imagine the mcu without him. Phase 4 won’t be the same without him. I hope they do him justice with a third movie. It’s what he deserves. pic.twitter.com/npE8tjNLgr— Peter Parker (@incorrrectpeter) August 21, 2019
