Some of the Best Memes on the Sony vs Marvel Spider-Man Dispute
With the heartbreaking news that Spider-Man is on his way back out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the internet is letting their feelings be known in the usual way: memes.
It was a shocking announcement that Sony and Disney/Marvel couldn't come to terms on a new deal to keep Spider-Man in the MCU. Since news broke, Sony's stock has dropped and fans are calling for a boycott of future Sony releases (I get it guys, but don't mess with my upcoming Ghostbusters and James Bond movies).
The deal between Sony and Marvel to add Spidey to the MCU literally saved Sony's cinematic department after several financial failures, and helped catapult the new Spider-Man film 'Far From Home' to over $1 billion at the box office as the highest grossing Sony film of all time. But fans are now blaming Sony, believing the company is ignoring that the success of the new Spider-Man was due primarily to Marvel's involvement and Kevin Feige's oversight.
It didn't take long for fans to take their frustrations out in memes. Here is just a taste of some of the best being passed around right now.
