Sony just screwed everything up for the MCU, Spider-Man was suppose to be the main hero. I think most fans are going to refuse to watch any Sony Spider-Man film. Well at least now Marvel will focus more on X-Men and F4.

I think that they have to come to an agreement. I don’t think that Sony could afford to reboot again, which it seems like they would have to if this comes to fruition. It puts Marvel in a terrible place creatively as well because you’d either have to kill Spider-Man off or pretend as if he never existed. They definitely seemed like they were building Spider-Man as their top character.
At the end of the day Sony hardly has any creative clout. They failed at reboot attempts, Venom was awful, into the spiderverse was good but wasn’t a huge blockbuster hit. They need Marvel more than they need them.
Venom & its incredibly puzzling (to me) success has given Sony all kinds of idiot ideas about themselves and their ability to make a "good" Spider verse movie. It has likely given some cretin within Sony(looking to make a name for himself) the stones to get in Disney's face about something small & here we are.
I feel really sorry for Tom Holland if all this goes to sh*t.
For the life of me I cant figure out why Sony has been so difficult about this....sit back, let MS do ALL THE WORK and just watch the $$$$ roll the f*ck in. Is it me or is the very definition of Simple Money 101? they get to distribute it as a Sony movie....WTF else do they want.

“Much of today’s news about Spider-Man has mischaracterized recent discussions about Kevin Feige’s involvement in the franchise,” says a Sony spokesperson. “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.” The studio then says Feige, who shepherds the robust Marvel Cinematic Universe for Disney-owned Marvel, may just have too much on his plate, given that Disney recently acquired additional Marvel characters via its acquisition of 21st Century Fox.
“We hope this might change in the future, but understand that the many new responsibilities that Disney has given him – including all their newly added Marvel properties – do not allow time for him to work on IP they do not own,” says the statement. “Kevin is terrific and we are grateful for his help and guidance and appreciate the path he has helped put us on, which we will continue.”
So it seems that Disney wants Kevin to focus more on X-Men & FF than Spider-man since they don’t own it which makes sense. But while the rest of the article speculated that the partnership has dissolved. It does seem like Sony wants to keep Spidey in the MCU with them saying they hope things change so maybe in the next Spider-man if things don’t work out we might not see any non Spider-man MCU characters in the film. So no Happy, Fury, Hill, Skrulls.
Or Kevin will be involved with it but not has hands on as he was in the previous 2 films.
Disney deserves some compensation for their work. But Sony gets a little bit of steam and it goes directly to their head. Now they're going to continue to put out subpar movies and the MCU has to pretend Spider Man never existed. Bulls**t.
