Spider-Man: Far from Home, starring Tom Holland, is also the only non-Disney title to cross $1 billion globally this year. And the teenage web-slinger has been made into a central component in the MCU with a close relationship to Tony Stark that drove the story lines in both "Endgame" and "Far From Home". This is reportedly due to a dispute that has taken place over the past few months at the top of Disney and Sony has essentially nixed Feige, and the future involvement of Marvel from the Spider-Man universe, as reported by DEADLINE. Marvel helped reestablish the character onscreen. This means that Spider-Man: Far From Home could be the last MCU movie to feature Spider-Man, though Tom Holland could continue the role in separate Sony films. This puts an end to crossovers and the influence of Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, who was pretty good at reining in the worst impulses of Sony's Amy Pascal. The future of your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man looked like it was going to be bright considering all of the success the character had when Marvel Studios stepped in to save the character after an abysmal reboot. This move comes after Disney and Sony were unable to come to a new agreement that would have seen the Mouse House getting a co-financing stake with future Spidey movies.
The latest Spider-Man has done great business in theaters - $376.7 million domestic and $732.9 million worldwide - but it's not closing in on any major box office milestones. The original deal is now up, so Feige came back to Sony and said "How about a more fair deal....fifty-fifty profit share?" Disney refused that counteroffer.
