Marvel will no longer be producing any Spider-Man films, after Disney bosses failed to come to an agreement with Sony.

According to Deadline, the studios were unable to come to an agreement over money, meaning Spidey is ducking out of MCU for now.

The publication states Disney asked that any future films starring the superhero – currently played by Tom Holland – be a 50/50 co-financing arrangement, something Sony refused to consider.

Instead, they reportedly suggested to keep their current deal, offering the studio 5 per cent of the first dollar grossing, with the studio declining.

Marvel president Kevin Feige was creative lead in the previous two Spider-Man films of the latest era, with 23-year-old Tom climbing into the superhero suit.

But unless a negotiation is reached, he will not have the same role in the two movies reportedly in the works.

L to R: Spider-Man/Peter Parker (Tom Holland), Iron Man/Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Drax (Dave Bautista), Star-Lord/Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) and Mantis (Pom Klementieff)

Understandably, fans are not impressed with the developments, with some even threatening to boycott Sony over their involvement.

Flocking to Twitter, one fumed: @Sony needs to go back to negotiating table with @Disney to keep #SpiderMan in the #MCU Spidey movies need to be in that universe and we dont need Sony to f*** it up again. #savespiderman.

Ill be seriously p***ed if #SpiderMan is no longer in the MCU, another said. I guess Sony hasnt learned their lesson.

Im gonna go ahead and call Sony on their bluff. Im pretty sure they will not pull away from Marvel, yall worrying over nothing. When Disney wants something they get it, thats it! #SpiderMan, a fan suggested.

#SpiderMan far from home was the highest grossing Sony movie, but yet this still took him away from the MCU!! Oh, these MFers extra stupid, a Twitter user fumed.

While a follower added: #BoycottSony They cant take Spidey away like this! Boycott Sony until they give #SpiderMan to Disney! FULL CONTROL OVER THE CHARACTER!!

The news comes after it was revealed Spider-Man: Far From Home – aka the second instalment in the recent series – has become Sonys highest grossing film of all time.

Meaning Spidey is even bigger than James Bond.
