Per Variety, Sony Pictures CEO Tony Vinciquerra has confirmed every Marvel fan’s worst nightmare: The ‘door is closed’ on Spider-Man’s return to the MCU – at least for the moment.

However, Vinciquerra added that ‘it’s a long life’, which could mean that we might still see a Spidey and Avengers reunion while we’re all still living and breathing.

Sony and Marvel recently had a falling out regarding the producing and financing of future Spider-Man movies. The failure to reach an agreement meant that Tom Holland’s web-slinger can no longer appear in future Marvel movies.

And while Vinciquerra was all praise for Marvel’s time on the character, calling them ‘terrific people’ and that he has ‘great respect for them’, he claims Sony Pictures will be alright on its own.

‘We have some pretty terrific people of our own. (Marvel CEO) Kevin (Feige) didn’t do all the work.’

Sony will look to create a Spidey-centric universe of their own, as ‘Venom 2’ and ‘Morbius’ films are currently in development.

‘Spider-Man was fine before the event movies, did better with the event movies, and now that we have our own universe, he will play off the other characters as well,’ adds Vinciquerra.

‘I think we’re pretty capable of doing what we have to do here.’
