So what is everyone's thoughts on this? I am a huge fan of Marvel and the MCU that they created. I was very happy when Sony and Disney came to an agreement so that Spidey could join in on the MCU. In his 5 appearances (Civil War, Infinity Wars, Endgame, 2 solo films) I thought he was cast perfectly and seemed to fit in great. I really was looking forward to seeing more of him in Phase 4.

Now that Sony has taken him back the continuity is going to be off. Tom Holland is still going to make two more Spider-Man movies (as per his contract), however, they are not going to be related to the MCU at all. I am not a fan of this and honestly will not even watch them. They way the crown was handed from Ironman to Spider-Man was a perfect bridge for Phase 4, now it was all for nothing.

I'm not entirely caught up with what's going on in the MCU, but I do know that this sounds like a big shot in the foot on Sony's part. This isn't the first time they've made this mistake...they could have purchased the entire MCU from Marvel back in the day for pennies on the dollar, but they turned it down and stuck with Spiderman instead. Look how much Marvel has going for itself now!!

Yea, The Eternals comes out in 2020 so I am pretty excited about that. Phase 4 should be awesome but it will just be weird without Spider-Man since he was set up to be a large part of the next phase. We shall see I guess.
