Not really.  Disney wanted to up their cut from the current 5% to 50%.  That's quite a bump.  Spiderman is the top grosser for Sony.  As a business decision, it makes more sense for Sony to go it alone with 100% of what could be a smaller pie than take a much smaller cut of of a possibly bigger one.  I think it would be easier for Sony to carry on Spiderman without the MCU than for Disney to explain what happened to Spiderman in the MCU.  He had been set up to be the Iron Man replacement in the MCU.

The two studios are once again working together for a film that will bring Tom Holland's superhero back to the big screen.

Spider-Man is back in action. After publicly parting ways over a deal gone south, Disney/Marvel and Sony are back at the table and have struck a deal that would see Marvel produce another Spider-Man film for Sony.

The new film even has a release date: July 16, 2021.

Benioff and Weiss were supposed to usher in the post-Skywalker era of the Star Wars brand with a 2022 new-start story that would stake out a new frontier for the era-defining cinema brand created by George Lucas. The Emmy-winning pair cited their historic deal with Netflix. They said their enthusiasm for Star Wars remains boundless but, regrettably, their schedule is full.

If this was announced pre Season 7 GoT, I would've been extremely bummed. But post Season 8, I'm relieved. I'm not sold on their ability to create something original and engaging, which can be seen when GoT the TV show went beyond the books.

It's on Netflix, Hulu and Prime. One of my favorites. The first season is a little uneven and off as they tried to find themselves, then it just gets good every episode.

It will be interesting to see how they will deal with replacing the main character. Plug in the new person and ignore the change like nothing happened?  Make up some reason for the facial change(her crazy sister sliced up her old face?). Kill off Kate Kane and install a new Batwoman?
