It is a sad week for Marvel Cinematic Universe aka MCU fans after Sony and Disney split. The two production houses, who had joined hands a few years ago, allowed Spider-Man to join the other Avengers in the MCU. This led to Tom Holland joining the Avengers world with Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. However, with Sony and Disney's deal reached an impasse which resulted in Spider-Man leaving the MCU. After the news broke out, the hashtag "save Spider-Man" began trending on social media. 

Fans began protesting against Spider-Man leaving MCU. Avengers: Endgame star Jeremy Renner too took to Instagram and demanded Sony return Spider-Man to Marvel. While Holland has been silent about Disney and Sony's deal ever since the news made the headlines, the British actor seems to have unfollowed Sony's official account on Instagram. MCU Cosmic’s Jeremy Conrad took to Twitter to reveal Holland's possible silent protest. 

While the actor has not issued a statement over the development, Holland's father Dominic Holland joined Marvel fans to chant "save Spider-Man." The British comedian, author and broadcaster, took to Twitter to join the "#SaveSpiderMan" trend. Meanwhile, Sony issued a statement over the recent change of events and said that they were "disappointed, but respect Disney's decision." 

"We are disappointed, but respect Disney’s decision not to have him continue as a lead producer of our next live action Spider-Man film." The statement added, "Kevin is terrific and we are grateful for his help and guidance and appreciate the path he has helped put us on, which we will continue."
