Have We Seen the Last of Spider-Man?
Right now the web (pun intended) is going crazy over the thought of no more Spider-Man movies, especially considering the most recent film brought in the biggest profit. So, what is the fate of Spider-Man? Here's what we know.

According to Deadline the dispute between the two companies (Marvel Studios and Sony Entertainment) means Marvel Studios President, Kevin Feige, won't produce any more Spider-Man films.

Disney's Apprehension Towards Kevin
A Sony rep confirmed Disney's hesitation to have Kevin Feige serve as a producer/president on a Sony-led Spider-Man movie going forward, adding to the issue (despite Feige's previous experience with massively successful Marvel Cinematic Universe movies).

The previous two movies, Far From Home and Homecoming, were made under the Sony-Marvel agreement. So, going forward if the new movies are made there's a good chance they could look very different.

Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are reasonably upset over Spider-Man parting ways with the franchise and Marvel actors are right behind them, including Jeremy Renner and Ryan Reynolds.

Sources explained the issue started out because Disney was seeking the 50/50 co-fi stake as the price for Marvel and Feige’s continued guiding hand that resulted in the delivery of Sony’s biggest grossing film ever. Sony declined to meet those terms. It was an aggressive stance by Disney, which already owns the merchandise on Spider-Man.

The Big Question
We're left asking what will the new Spider-Man look like? Sony is planning two more installments of Spider-Man, but will they include previous director, Jon Watts? (A director previously guided creatively by Feige). Watts isn’t signed on for the next film as of right now.
Will tom Holland still wear the spidey suit? With a change in creativity and possibly a change in director, it is possible there might be another actor used. That would be a major disappointment to the films, especially considering Stan Lee himself explained previously how he felt Tom Holland was the perfect fit for Spider-Man.
Apparently, negotiations are ongoing, so let's hope for the best.
