Last month brought about the sad news that Disney and Sony were unable to reach a deal about Spider-Man, meaning Tom Holland is not expected to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Fans have been hoping that the two companies could reach a deal, but according to a statement issued by Sony yesterday, the door is currently closed (for now).
The deal initially allowed Spider-Man to appear in Marvel Studios films to co-exist with the Avengers heroes in the MCU. It expired following Spider-Man: Far From Home and Marvel's parent company Disney wanted a considerable lift in their cut of the box office revenue for Spider-Man movies to which Sony essentially said no.
While many initially blamed Sony for the drama, some reports suggest Disney is the one who wanted to walk away. However, the recent news from Sony has caught the attention of many Marvel fans, who have continued to tweet their disdain towards the company. Here’s a sample of tweets from Spider-Man fans who are upset over the recent news...

So apparently Sony claims that "The Door is Closed" on Spider-Man in the MCU. That means there will be no interaction with The Fantastic Four or the X-Men, If they make a standalone Spider-Man Film, I'm not watching it #boycottsonyspiderman— Ranz (@Starfleet2360) September 5, 2019
Send your Thoughts and Prayers to the writers of the next Spider-Man film who have to creatively come up with a different villain motivation that doesn’t rely on Tony Stark. https://t.co/rMWFdMk1aa— Dan (@Danimalish) September 5, 2019
