Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige won’t produce any further Spider-Man films because of an inability by Disney and Sony Pictures to reach new terms that would have given the former a co-financing stake going forward. A dispute that has taken place over the past few months at the top of Disney and Sony has essentially nixed Feige, and the future involvement of Marvel from the Spider-Man universe, sources said.
The latest addition to the Spidey franchise, Spider-Man: Far From Home, is Sony’s biggest movie ever, grossing over 1 billion dollars worldwide at the box office. It was amazing that Marvel was able to rehab Spider-Man back into the superstar he was after numerous failed attempts by Sony.

Then came the Sam Raimi trilogy showcasing Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man, which batted 2 for 3. Not bad, but the third is so God-awful that it left a bad taste in my mouth for the trilogy as a whole. 5 years later, and a reboot, we got the Marc Webb helmed trilogy with Andrew Garfield taking over the reins from Maguire.
Both trilogies had Peter Parker as a teenager in high school which is fine but they both missed the mark. I’ll tell you why:
TOBEY MAGUIRE AND ANDREW GARFIELD WERE FUCKING ADULTS. EVERYONE IN THEIR HIGH SCHOOLS WERE FUCKING ADULTS.
A major component of any great film is being believable. Seeing adults portraying teens in school takes you out of the film because your mind is questioning their age the entire time.
