Spider-Man Fans Report Empty Far From Home Extended Cut Showings

At least for the time being, Tom Holland’s Peter Parker is no longer part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Sony blamed the unravelling on the other commitments of Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, saying it’s “disappointed” by Disney’s decision. That’s an understatement, and doubly so for fans.

Social media reactions have run the gamut, from rage and sadness to humour and theories about how the impasse between Marvel and Sony might be resolved. Whether it’s anger at Sony, disappointment about the future of Spider-Man and the MCU, or sympathy for Tom Holland, they can all be found on Twitter. Here’s a selection of some of the more memorable responses.

A lot of reactions have been fans voicing their outrage.

Tony’s whole motivation to even consider time travel was to bring Peter back…only for him to disappear again

Of course, after their initial anger, some fans turned their attention to Tom Holland. Many felt sympathy for the actor.

Others were quick to point out the similarities between the fates of all actors who play Spider-Man, and how both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield both lost opportunities as Spider-Man, due to the actions of executives.

One positive outcome of the controversy was that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man would now be able to interact with Tom Hardy’s Venom. However, many thought that was too little, too late. The crossover came at too high a cost.

The most significant reaction appears to be straightforward: Fans want Spider-Man to remain in the MCU.
