On August 20, 2019, Sony and Disney announced that Spider-Man will no longer be a part of the MCU. In an official statement released by Sony, the company said it was disappointed that Marvel Studios stalwart Kevin Feige would no longer act as a producer on the Spidey films following Spider-Man: Far From Home. Sony cited Disney's recent acquisition of Fox as the reason Feige would not have time to work on the films.
Naturally, Marvel and Spider-Man fans did not care about the explanations from either studio. These fans immediately took to Twitter to voice their concerns and grief.
