Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has pulled out of producing future Spider-Man movies, due to disputes between Sony and Marvel’s parent company Disney over revenue sharing from films starring the web-slinging hero.
The news means that Spider-Man’s appearances in Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe films as well as crossovers from characters like Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man or Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury in future Spider-Man films could end with Spider-Man: Far From Home, released earlier this summer.
According to Deadline’s sources, the issue is money: Disney reportedly asked that future Spider-Man films be 50 / 50 coproductions between Disney and Sony, instead of the current deal, which is said to give Marvel (and Disney) 5 percent of gross box-office revenue.
According to Deadline’s report, Sony apparently feels that the combined creative team of director Jon Watts (who helmed Spider-Man: Homecoming and the sequel, Far From Home), actor Tom Holland, and producer Amy Pascal will be enough to keep the Spider-Man franchise momentum going for future films, even without Feige’s involvement.
