    Looks like our worst nightmares for Spider-Man’s cinematic future have become a reality: Unless something changes over the next few weeks; Spidey looks to be ripped away from his Marvel kin once again as it seems that Disney and Sony currently can't come to an agreement to continue to have the webslinger in the MCU after Far From Home. Various outlets have reported that Sony still intends to keep Holland in the lead role and don't plan on a hard reboot for the time being. This makes sense since this version is the most successful take on the character ever; they’re literally coming off the franchise's first ever billion dollar film. Why would you reboot now? Problem is with Sony taking back the character they're immediately back to being restricted to only working with the rights they own meaning there cannot be any ties or references to the wider Marvel Universe as well as no Marvel Studios owned characters like Happy Hogan & Nick Fury appearing.

    God forbid even if the third Spider-Man film looks good can it really entice you fans who've become invested in this version of the character enough back to the theater knowing full well that it won't have any real connection to the wider MCU beyond the fact they’re keeping the same actors who were cast in MCU for Sony’s next Spider-Man? Of course, even though MCU Spider-Man has been generally well-liked there are still a vocal minority who are dissatisfied with the MCU's take on the character. Some have dubbed the MCU Spidey "Iron Boy Jr." because they feel that version is too tied to the Iron Man character & comes across as more of his lackey than the truly independent character that he is in the source material. The criticisms range from, "They're making Tony Stark the new Uncle Ben!" to "Spider-Man doesn't need Iron Man's tech!" ,ect. but I thought this was simply a fresh take on the character and didn't mind the changes but I can’t ignore the fact there are people who don't care for this iteration who probably are jumping for joy over this recent development and would more than welcome a potential third Spider-Man film without the House Of Ideas involved.

    Maybe they'll call the next movie: "Spider-Man: Left Home Again." They certainly won't call it that but it would fit. So where does does the Hype community stand? Yay or nay to the idea of Sony doing a third Holland Spider-Man-Man film without Marvel involved?

    I won't support it but part of the reason also comes from how my view of the MCU has changed these last months. I loved Endgame, but most of the Phase 3 films weren't that remarkable.

    Add to that the whole MCU has completely changed its focus to be more fantastic these last few films. That bothers me deeply, especially after finally watching the third season of Daredevil and learning how good it was. Grounded stories like that don't have a place in the MCU anymore.

    I guess it's my fault for expecting that from comicbook film adaptations. But at this point I think I don't care anymore, this is my stop for Marvel in general.

    Yes, of course i will. For multiple reasons.

    For years people wanted Spidey in the MCU, when he was finally brought in, all there was, was nothing but crying and complaining about everything. Everything. As an Iron Man fan, it was unbearable to be in the Spider-Man forums because of that. Serves them right that he's not part of the MCU anymore and they can't mention Happy Hogan, Stark tech, etc..

    Second Sony is in the right. They stood up to the bully and popped him in the mouth. F%$& Disney.

    Last, for me, the MCU died when Marvel/Disney and all of them OK'd the killing of Iron Man. With Spider-Man leaving the MCU, I can fully support Spidey and his movies without giving Disney or the MCU another dime.

    I have zero interest in an MCU-less Spider-Man.

    If it’s Sony, I might wait until it comes out to rent or stream, rather than see it in theaters.

    If it's a continuation of the Raimi films, heck yes.

    Otherwise, idk. Didn't care for the Garfield or Holland films.

    I honestly don't know.

    I'm open to a non-MCU Spiderman as he is in his own little bubble in the comics throughout most of his publishing history anyway and this version felt a bit off in some ways even though I thought Marvel Studios was clever with reinventing things and keeping the character fresh I didn't really find the character as endearing.

    However, I don't think Sony can make another reboot as it'd just be redundant. Things have to continue MCU wise for the character. Otherwise, just focus on the 2099 universe until something gets worked out. ;)

    I will support Sony's Spider-Man, even if they reboot or recast Spider-Man but I'm still hoping that Sony and Marvel will will reach a settlement and we can have Spidey in MCU movies.

    I'd prefer for new deal to stay in the MCU but yeah I'll support. I did it before even though I didn't like Spider-Man 3, Amazing Spider-Man and Amazing Spider-Man 2

    I love the first 2 Raimi films and Into The Spider-Verse

    Impossible to say at this time. If the trailers look like a good movie, then I'll consider seeing it. If they leave me with any doubt whatsoever, Sony hasn't earned the benefit of the doubt, so no.

    I'll take it one film at a time if I hear it's good I'll check it out. But I voted no

    Nope. Not interested in another reboot at this moment (even with Holland), with most likely familiar story beats that Sony has gone thru before. I'm more interested in Spidey progressing and growing in the Mcu and becoming one of the main cogs of the next Avengers more than anything.

    The beauty of the Mcu are stakes can go from high to low, and stories grounded to fantastical, when going from the heroes solo films to then the team-up films. U lose that dynamic under the helm of Sony. It's kind of hard going back to that.

    Also, people dump on Sony but for me, Into the Spider-Verse is better than the vast majority of MCU and that movie was done on Sony's watch.

    Sonys record is hit and miss but I will support them. I didnt love or hate Hollands Spiderman, he was just a big meh. Both Homecoming and Far from Home are average, run of the mill, forgetable movies.They changed too many things about classic Spidey for me from major changes like million dollar suits and Ironmans heavy influence to nitty things like making a fake MJ and a dweeby Flash. I only enjoyed Spidey when he was in the ensemble crossovers. If Sony can give us a young adult Peter Parker with a academic job protecting NY against threats (Venom?) and give us back classic red head MJ and such, then I am all for it. Basically a live action version of the Spiderman PS4 game.

    What the MCU has is the crossover potential.

    What excites you more?
    Spider-Man - Fantastic Four - X-Men - Daredevil - Deadpool
    Spider-Man - Sinister Six - Venom - Spider-Verse (Garfield/Holland/Maguire)

    I think Into the Spider-verse was good, but somewhat overrated. And I strongly suspect it was only as good as it was because the worst elements of Sony's corporate culture weren't throwing their weight around to micromanage an animated film that was never expected to light the box office on fire. Anyone expecting Spider-verse quality from Sony's live action franchise is quite likely in for an unpleasant surprise.

    Black Widow is going to be more grounded

    As far as supporting Sony, yes. No matter what I'll always see a Spider-Man movie in theaters

    You're welcome to your opinion of course but for me Into the Spider-Verse is a masterpiece. One of my all-time favorite movies. Sure, attempting to replicate that in live-action would be difficult but you could hire the same writers to pen the new Spider-Man movie.

    I'll watch it when it hits the theaters as I've seen every Marvel film.

    But support is a strong word. I'm not supporting it. I've seen a lot ofbad films out of curiosity or films that made me question on why they made it in the first place but it didn't mean that I supported it.
