Rumour has it, Disney and Marvel were even hoping to help out with those films to further expand the crossover - but in the end, the studios simply asked for more than Sony was willing to give.

Tom Holland, whose contract is reportedly for six films, has already appeared in five (Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Avengers: Infinity War, Endgame, and Far From Home), although sources say that there are actually two more Spider-Man films in the works with Holland as front and center, as well as director Jon Watts.

To celebrate the achievement, on August 29th the studio is releasing an extended cut of the film featuring approximately four additional minutes of a never-before-seen action sequence. Tom Holland's Peter Parker subsequently appeared in five MCU movies, and given the critical and commercial success of Spider-Man: Far From Home, it seemed like Marvel and Sony would continue working closely together in the coming years.

Kevin Feige will no longer produce future spidey films due to the inability of the companies to "reach new terms that would have given (Sony) a co-financing stake going forward, Deadline reports". Moviegoers can see the extended version in regular, large format, or IMAX theaters in both the USA and Canada. Not bad for your average friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. It is also possible that Disney and Sony could return to negotiations, but nothing is for sure.

The movie then became the highest-grossing Spider-Man movie overseas and opened at the top of 65 markets including Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, Mexico, Russia, South Korea, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Japan opened with $9.4 million - the second-biggest superhero movie launch in the last decade.

Spider-Man got a boost at the box office being the first film connected to the MCU after "Avengers: Endgame".

As of right now, Feige is still to be lead creative producer of the aforementioned.
