filmmaker 101 started this petition to Disney and . Marvel Studios is no longer involved with the production of future Spider - man Movies, and as a big Spider - man fan I want to see the amazing character continue in the mcu . We will not watch the third and final movie if it’s not apart of the mcu .

Sony counteracted with a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, which was later posted on the studio's Twitter account, which placed the blame for the split on Marvel.

"We are disappointed, but respect Disney's decision not to have [Feige] continue as a lead producer of our next live action Spider-Man film," Sony said.

"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," the studio continued. "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."

Sony has owned the film rights to Spider-Man (and related characters like Venom and Moribus) since 1998. Holland's version of the superhero introduced in 2016's "Captain America: Civil War" was made possible by a deal Sony and Marvel reached in 2015.

The past "Spider-Man" franchises, which starred Tobey Maguire and then Andrew Garfield, were led solely by Sony, without input from Marvel/Disney. With Sony still owning and distributing 2017's "Spider-Man: Homecoming" and its sequel, "Spider-Man: Far From Home," the character could still be part of the MCU.

In 2019, Holland starred in "Avengers: Endgame" and "Far From Home." Both movies hit $1 billion at the box office, and "Far From Home" became Sony's highest-grossing movie of the year.
