Spider-Man Leaving the MCU: The Best and Worst-Case Scenarios
With each passing day, it looks more and more like Spider-Man really might be done in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If Disney and Sony can’t come to a new deal to share the character, Spidey and the MCU will have to go their separate ways. Spider-Man will continue with his own movies, and Marvel has plenty of projects ahead. But the days of Spidey swinging through Avengers adventures would be over.
So what happens now? The video below from ScreenCrush’s Ryan Arey images all the different possible outcomes, considering the best-case scenarios, of which there are some (Marvel will have to get creative, and when they do, they tend to make interesting movies) and the worse-case scenarios, of which there are also some. (Remember the last time Sony made live-action Spidey movies without Marvel?)
