Spider-man is no longer a part of the Marvel Comic Universe, as Disney and Sony have a falling out
Spider-man, one of Marvel’s most classic superheroes, is no longer a part of the MCU.
The Spider-man character was part of the Marvel Universe until 1999 when Sony bought the character from Disney, who owns Marvel Studios.
Sony then produced five films of their own which featured the character. Fast forward to 2015, Sony decided to make a deal with Disney and Marvel to share ownership of the character so that he could feature in Marvel movies.
Since the deal, there have been five movies which are part of the Marvel Universe, the last one being ‘Spider-man: Far From Home’ which released earlier this year. According to a report by entertainment website, Deadline, Disney and Sony were unable to meet the new terms for funding for the future movies.
Many Dubai Twitter have shared their opinions about the news, with most people pleading Sony to give the character back to Disney so that it can be a part of the Marvel Universe.
Spider-man ffh was all about Tony and Peter’s father-son/mentor-mentee relationship. Please please no please #sony don’t take that away from us— pikatchu(˘͈ᵕ˘͈) (@7aidrya_) August 20, 2019
While some feel that the ownership change will improve future Spider-man movies, but that doesn’t seem like a popular opinion.

At least movie fans have something to smile about as it is confirmed that Keanu Reeves will be coming back for Matrix 4.
