As of now, Spider Man is no longer part of the Marvel Universe. I KNOW, RIGHT?! If this is news to you, lemme fill you in… In the form of current written information, and Twitter meme responses.
So here’s the scoop: Sony and Disney couldn’t reach new co-financing terms to co-produce the franchise, so Disney pulled Marvel’s President, Kevin Feige, as the lead producer as well as Tom Holland (or anyone, really) appearing as Spider Man in any future Marvel Movies.
People on Twitter are taking sides when it comes to who’s to blame: Sony for “not giving into” the 50-50 monetary deal, and Disney for being “greedy” for wanting 50-50.
There’s also dispute over who even truly is responsible for the HUGE financial success that has been the past two Spider Man movies as of late (Sony? Or Disney?).
And (Endgame spoiler coming up in the next sentence if you haven’t seen it yet)…
TONY STARK SACRIFICED HIMSELF BECAUSE HE KNEW PETER PARKER WOULD TAKE OVER AS SPIDER MAN. Now that seems to be all in vain!
But I’m sure you’ve stopped reading as soon as you read, “Spider Man is no longer part of the Marvel Universe.” And you’ve looked like this since:
And of course you’re not alone. Even Hawkeye had an enraged tweet on the matter!

And even before that, Sony broke its silence on the “divorce” with this:
Much of today’s news about Spider-Man has mischaracterized recent discussions about Kevin Feige’s involvement in the franchise. 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. (1/3)

But obviously there’s been some raging happening on Twitter since the news broke yesterday. Here’s a peek at some of the hilarious memes posted on the matter.
Of course I made my own with my all-time favorite Idris meme, with the help of our Editor-in-Chief, Larissa:
