Fans Are Devastated At Ryan Reynolds’ Response To “Spider-Man” Leaving The MCU

Ugh, this is all too much.

By now I’m sure you’ll have heard the shocking news that Marvel is set to part ways with Sony Pictures’ Spider-Man franchise.

The controversial decision will effectively remove the much-loved version of Peter Parker played by Tom Holland from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.


It also means that Spider-Man is definitely not going to become the new Tony Stark because they’re no longer part of the same franchise.


And it’s safe to say that fans are completely devastated by the news.

How DARE Sony do this to Tom Holland?! TO HUMANITY?! #SpiderMan

me never watching another marvel movie ever again because tom holland’s spider-man won’t be in any of them so what’s the fucking point

Live look at literally every Spider-Man fan right now

I think it's cool that Sony is carrying on its tradition of completely fucking up Spider-Man 3.

While Sony have spoken out about the situation, describing the decision as “disappointing”, none of the actors connected with the franchise have commented.

However, it didn’t take long before fans flocked to Ryan Reynolds — another actor from the MCU — to express their devastation and ask him for help.

Ryan of course plays Deadpool, and was behind a decadelong campaign to get the movie made.

One fan tweeted to ask Ryan: “Can we get a Spiderman & Deadpool movie now?”

And his response was pretty damn heartbreaking.

Fans were, of course, devastated all over again.
