Sony-Disney fallout over Spiderman rights causes uproar on Twitter
Spider-Man will no longer be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe after a fallout between Sony Pictures Entertainment and The Walt Disney Company. As per the deal, Disney was to be in charge of toy and merchandising for the franchise while Sony would be in charge of distribution. However, after the success of Spider-Man: Far from Home, Disney tried to re-negotiate the contract and asked for a fifty-fifty co-financing arrangement between the studios which Sony refused. This also means that Tom Holland will not reprise his role as Peter Parker in the MCU anymore.
Marvel fans all around the world went berserk over this development and vented their frustration on Twitter under the hashtag #SaveSpiderman.
Brands joined the fray as well.
