Spi­der-Man will not ap­pear on Marvel Cine­matic Uni­verse

Los An­ge­les: To­ward the end of Avengers: Endgame, Hawk­eye is run­ning with the In­fin­ity Gaunt­let, and asks Cap­tain Amer­ica what to do with it. To save the uni­verse, they and their fel­low Avengers need to get the In­fin­ity Stones it holds to a safe place. But stand­ing in their way is an army led by Thanos’s most fear­some gen­er­als, as well as Thanos him­self.

It just so hap­pens that those who take a turn car­ry­ing the Gaunt­let are all part of the next gen­er­a­tion of Marvel’s flag­ship he­roes. Black Pan­ther takes it first, then hands it off to Spi­der-Man, a.k.a. Peter Parker. Next, as Thanos’s goons bear down on them, Cap­tain Marvel comes in with the as­sist.

For fans, this scene is not just about de­feat­ing Thanos — it’s a lit­eral hand­off, as Marvel sig­nals that Black Pan­ther, Spi­der-Man, and Cap­tain Marvel are ready to save the day and rule the Marvel Cine­matic Uni­verse, just as Iron Man, Cap­tain Amer­ica, and Thor did be­fore them.

But this week, that sym­bolic pass­ing of the torch hit a snag. News broke through anony­mous sources that a deal be­tween Sony and Marvel had gone sour. But news re­ports sug­gested they’d hit an im­passe while dis­cussing the fu­ture of their Spi­der-Man agree­ment, with both sides ul­ti­mately walk­ing away. The re­sult: Spi­der-Man won’t ap­pear in any Marvel films go­ing for­ward.
