Wait, Is Tom Holland Still Playing Spider-Man After the Sony and MCU Split?

By

Did Sony Pictures just snap away Spider-Man from the Marvel Cinematic Universe? We may have to say goodbye to our favorite web-slinging Avenger after a deal between Disney and Sony fell through. 

The Mickey Mouse conglomerate obtained the movie rights to the comic book character in 2015, which made it possible for the high school superhero to be introduced in Captain America: Civil War and team up with fellow Avengers in additional MCU films. 

Before the joint partnership, the character of Spider-Man was owned by Sony and portrayed by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. Deadline broke the news on Tuesday, August 20, that the two companies were unable to reach a co-financing agreement. So, what does this mean for our beloved Peter Parker? Is Tom Holland still playing Spider-Man?
