It’s just been announced that talks between Sony and Marvel Studios have broken down regarding their partnership with the Spider-Man franchise.

Sony, very famously, went into cahoots with Marvel and Disney, and loaned the beautiful Tom Holland era Spider-Man to the Avengers franchise. This meant the Marvel Cinematic Universe got Spidey in Captain America: Civil War, as well as Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
