Spider-Man is Back in Marvel Cinematic Universe, Here’s How Fans are Reacting!

Spider-Man’s third movie will be produced by Disney and Sony, and is slated to hit the screens on 16th July 2021.

Spider-Man is back in Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Following the success of Spider-Man: Far From Home, Disney’s Marvel Studios had asked Sony for a 50-50 revenue split, which had led to a disagreement and to the announcement that Spider-Man would no longer be part of MCU. However, as per latest reports, the two companies have finally reached a financial agreement and Spider-Man, portrayed by Tom Holland, will stay in the MCU, with the third movie releasing on 16th July 2021.  Tom Holland took his Instagram to post a video fro The Wolf of Wall Street, where Leonardo Di Caprio announces that he is not leaving.

Fans were ecstatic about this latest development about their favourite superhero. Here’s how they reacted to the news on Twitter:

Alhaji Dami♔ (@dukedammy) posted a still of Tony Stark hugging Peter Parker (Spider-Man) and wrote, “Spiderman staying in MCU: We did it Mr Stark. We did it…. #SpiderMan"

Spatziline (@spatziline) posted a gif of spider-man dancing and wrote, “THE WORLD IS IN PERFECT BALANCE AGAIN #SpiderMan."

Razzling! (@rightaeous) said, “I COULD CRY RIGHT NOW. MY FAV SPIDEY IS BACK!!!!!! #SpiderMan"

The news also drew mixed reactions from a few fans. Simon James (@SJames) tweeted, “Conflicted at the #SpiderMan news. Part of me was morbidly curious to see Sony try to continue the series without mentioning a single MCU character…"

In a statement released by Marvel Studios, President Kevin Feige said, "I am thrilled that Spidey’s journey in the MCU will continue, and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited that we get to keep working on it. Spider-Man is a powerful icon and hero whose story crosses all ages and audiences around the globe. He also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes, so as Sony continues to develop their own Spidey-verse you never know what surprises the future might hold.”
