Negotiations broke down between Disney and Sony Pictures for future Spider-Man films, sending fans into a panic.
Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are up in arms over Spider-Man parting ways with the franchise. Marvel actors are right behind them.
Avenger Jeremy Renner, who plays Hawkeye, took to social media to voice his support for keeping Spider-Man, currently played by Tom Holland, in the franchise.
“Hey @sonypictures we want Spider-Man back to @therealstanlee and @marvel please, thank you,” the actor wrote Tuesday night on Instagram. “#congrats #spidermanrocks#🏹 #please”
“Deadpool” star Ryan Reynolds also showed love for the superhero on social media.
“Can we get a Spiderman Deadpool movie now?” user @ChaoticKing_ tweeted at Reynolds and Holland on Tuesday night.
“You can,” Reynolds responded. “But you can only see it in my heart.”
Already emotional Spidey enthusiasts had a tough time dealing with Reynolds’ tweet.
“TOO SOON SIR,” user @ultchalamet replied.
“IM GONNA (expletive) CRY,” @bladeswidow added.
You can. But you can only see it in my heart.

No more Spider-Man in Marvel movies? Here’s what you need to know
On Tuesday, negotiations broke down between Disney and Sony Pictures for future Spider-Man films, sending fans into a panic.
What’s going on? Sony has controlled the rights to the web-slinger since 1999, but the two studios have been happily (or so we thought) sharing Spider-Man across a plethora of films since 2015, including major roles in the latest “Avengers” movies. As part of the previous agreement, Marvel had also been acting as a producer on the 2017 and 2019 standalone Sony “Spider-Man” movies starring Tom Holland, which were both box-office blockbusters.
In a Sony statement to USA TODAY Tuesday night, the studio said the outstanding issue remained over the future involvement of Marvel President, and comic movie mastermind, Kevin Feige as a producer in future Spider-man films.
“Much of today’s news about Spider-Man has mischaracterized recent discussions about Kevin Feige’s involvement in the franchise,” the statement said. “We are disappointed, but respect Disney’s decision not to have him continue as a lead producer of our next live action Spider-Man film. We hope this might change in the future.”
