Sony Pictures has reportedly shitcanned a new offer to share profits from its Spider-Man films with Disney, ending the studios’ hero-sharing partnership and effectively wiping Tom Holland from future Marvel flicks.

Deadline reports the deal collapsed when Sony Pictures, which retains the rights to the web-slinger and his cast of misfit villains, refused to give Disney an even split of future Spider-Man profits.

That’s despite the current Spider-Man films – Sony’s third crack at the hero, after stints by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield – coming to life under the eye of Marvel’s insanely successful producer Kevin Feige.

Essentially, it seems Sony believes they can carry on churning out Spider-Man flicks without Peter Parker mingling with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
