The future of “Spider-Man” franchise after Disney and Sony Pictures failed to reach a co-financing deal on upcoming superhero films is not to be going anywhere, according to a report from Deadline.
According to the LA Times report, Sony was disappointed by its latest Spider-Man outing (Andrew Garfield’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2), so executives Michael Lynton and Amy Pascal reached out to Marvel to strike a five-movie deal.
Tuesday was a stressful day for all the Marvel fans out there. It was heart thrashing to know that their beloved character will no longer be a part of the MCU.
After hearing from the chaos, a heart-broken fan tweeted his sad feelings and got them into the attention of Spider-Man star Tom Holland and Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds.
He pleaded to bring the Spider-Man and Deadpool into the Marvel Universe before it’s too late. “Can we get a Spiderman & Deadpool movie now @VancityReynolds and @TomHolland1996,” Twitter user Angel Hernandez wrote in a tweet that earned nearly 30,000 likes and 3,000 retweets.
The boy did get a reply from Ryan after a long wait, and it was none less than the answer that can be expected from Ryan Reynolds. “You can. But you can only see it in my heart,” he replied.
The news caused a tornado on social media that even led to #SaveSpiderMan trended on Twitter. Actor Jeremy Renner, who plays Hawkeye in the Avengers films, and Tom Holland’s father Dominic Holland also made their displeasure public.
One day ago, Tom also posted a picture of himself with none other than Robert Downey Jr. quoting himself in the caption by, “We did it, Mr. Stark.” It was a nod from the epic line of his character Peter Parker said to Tony Stark a.k. A Robert Downey Jr. after all of the disruptions came to an end. This was a method of Tom Holland to show his displeasure towards the agreement of Disney/Sony/Marvel.
