Sony spoke about the Spider-Man film scandal.
There are no more Spiderman movies within the MCU yet. Sony is shifting the responsibility to Disney, who will not allow Kevin Feig to work on the production.
The sad news arrived last night that the deal between Sony and Disney was over and Spiderman was leaving the Marvel Film Universe. The news hit fans like a bolt of lightning, as many say there hasn’t been as great a film adaptation of Peter Parker’s adventures as the one put together by Marvel led by Kevin Feige. The financial success of the last part could have predicted that it would be a fruitful relationship (we expected that too), but very soon it all turned into an absurd tragedy.
The case is, of course, dirty material, as Sony says Disney has demanded too much stake for the next (yet to be announced) Spiderman movies. In connection with the news, several people have boycotted Sony, and the studio, in an uncharacteristic way, issued a statement to prevent the spread of misinformation.
Many news in the Spider-Man case misinterpret Kevin Feige’s role in the life of the franchise. We’re very disappointed, but we respect Disney’s decision not to continue as Feige’s lead producer in our next Spiderman films. We hope this may change in the future, but we also understand that with the plethora of responsibilities Disney has given him – including new Marvel projects – he doesn’t have time to work on an IP that isn’t owned by the studio. Kevin is fantastic and grateful for his help and guidance. We respect the path you have set and we will continue on this with the story of Spider-Man.
It is clear from the statement that Sony has also suffered a great loss by banning Feig from their films and blaming Disney quite firmly for what happened. It is not possible to state clearly which studio is the bad guy in the case, but Sony is likely to sweat the creative heads now, as Feige is reportedly involved not only in the MCU films but also in the work of Venom and the upcoming Morbius films. water. You can read the original statement here:
Much of today’s news about Spider-Man has mischaracterized recent discussions about Kevin Feige’s involvement in the franchise. 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. (1/3)

While for now, all hope seems to be lost, we’re pushing for the two companies to come to an agreement (Sony would admit to being ready to do so), it’s pretty certain we fans would be best off if Poki could stay part of the MCU. Or don’t you see it that way?
