You can find below what happened when Sony and Disney broke up after a Rift over Revenue Sharing for the ‘Spiderman’ series and reactions from people around the world…
Sony Disney Deal – A really shocking news of the day was that Marvel Studios has ended their production contribution for the upcoming Spider-Man movies. The President of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige pulled out of producing the future Spiderman movies because of disputes between Sony and Disney (Marvel’s parent company). These disputes arose due to revenue sharing from films starring Spiderman.
A spokesperson from Sony confirmed this news and also added that he was disappointed with Kevin Feige pulling out from producing Spiderman movies. Disney had initially offered for a 50-50 co-financing arrangement between both the studios but Sony rejected the offer after which Marvel pulled out from financing the movie. Spiderman was definitely a big addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Sony always maintained the rights to the Spiderman character and was therefore responsible to finance, distribute and take care of the ‘final creative control’. This dispute has also lead to some heartbreaking reactions from Spiderman fans all over the world.

Stan Lee mentioned in a tweet that Tom Holland was the idle person for the character of Spiderman. He said that Tom was the exact height and age that Stan Lee envisioned while writing Spiderman for the first time.
I think @TomHolland1996 is a great Spider-Man. He is the exact height and age I envisioned when I first wrote Spider-Man. Spidey was never supposed to be too large. How is my friend Tom doing?

Nothing is impossible till it actually is… I hope Sony and Disney work something out, if not, I hope for the best for all involved, there is just too much story saturated into Peter ( @TomHolland1996 ) it will be heartbreaking to just disconnect him from it all… pic.twitter.com/MJ4wxJvurC
