If our hearts felt cracked and fragile before, they're smashed to smithereens now.

Just weeks on from initial reports, the Spider-Man situation remains woefully the same after Sony Pictures CEO Tony Vincinquerra confirmed that “for the moment the door is closed” on the MCU return.

Marvel Studios and Sony's financial talks have broken down, and now Tom Holland's Peter Parker will no longer be part of the MCU, with Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige now absent from Spidey's next movie.

Many fans were hoping that the impasse could be overcome, but it seems that Sony is doubling down on distancing themselves from Disney after the entertainment giant asked for 30 percent of the earnings from the next few Spidey films.

To put this in perspective, they were only earning five percent before…so it's quite the leap on Disney's part to be fair. 

Speaking at Variety’s Entertainment and Technology summit, Sony Pictures CEO dispelled fan's queries on the superhero;  “We had a great run with Kevin Feige on Spider-Man movies,” he said.

“We tried to see if there’s a way to work it out… the Marvel people are terrific people, we have great respect for them, but on the other hand we have some pretty terrific people of our own. Kevin didn’t do all the work.”

He continued: “Spider-Man was fine before the event movies, did better with the event movies, and now that we have our own universe, he will play off the other characters as well. I think we’re pretty capable of doing what we have to do here.”

Sony seem confident that following the box office success of Venom and the widespread critical and public acclaim for the Oscar-winning Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, it can spin its own compelling web of spider tales.

Director Jon Favreau, the MCU the filmmaker behind Iron Man and Iron Man 2, and actor of Happy Hogan in Homecoming and Far From Home – still hopes that an agreement can be made.

“I’ve been talking to everybody about it… I’m cautiously optimistic,” he said at Variety’s summit.

“I think it’s a long way away and I think the collaboration has been really strong up to this point so I’m hopeful that there’s a way for us all to play together going forward.”

PLEASE solve this tangled web of a problem, Jon. We can't handle the idea of the adorable Tom Holland not featuring in the MCU, he stole scenes in the Avengers as Iron Man's protégé.

Sony Pictures, who own the rights to comic book character Spider-Man, have made a statement about the split with Disney which will see the webslinger no longer involved in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The company said they were "disappointed" last night by Disney's demand for a greater stake in the Spider-Man films and its proposal to reduce the involvement of Marvel president Kevin Feige in the franchise.

“Much of today’s news about Spider-Man has mischaracterised recent discussions about Kevin Feige’s involvement in the franchise,” said the statement.

“We are disappointed, but respect Disney’s decision not to have him continue as a lead producer of our next live action Spider-Man film.

“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," they added.

“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.”

Negotiations had been underway for numerous months between Sony and Disney over Spider-Man's future, after Disney's purchase of Marvel in 2009 for $4 billion heightened box-office dominance.

Disney had been demanding that future movies be financed evenly between the two studios, with Feige as the consultant producer.

Feige has been aligned with the Avengers series since Iron Man was released in 2008, and has been mostly credited with satisfying the franchise’s hardcore fans alongside Disney’s desire for awards and critical recognition.

Avengers: Endgame overtook Avatar last month as the highest grossing film of all time, and Black Panther became the first superhero film to win a Best Picture nomination at the Oscars last year.

Spider-Man: Far From Home, deposed Skyfall as Sony’s biggest film ever at the global box office only this week, with two more films starring Tom Holland supposedly in the works.

Major character plot holes will no doubt be the result of Sony's split with Disney, after Far From Home set up the next major Avengers storyline. Tom Holland fans are in mourning over the news, with the actor playing arguably the most popular Spidey to date.
