Given the extreme backlash--and the fact that Far From Home sets up Spidey 3--isn't the most likely scenario that Sony caves?

Well Holland has come out and says he’s continuing now, so lol bets are off. I guess they can still go with the "everyone knows who Spidey is" storyline in the next standalone, while in the MCU they can say "too bad that Parker kid gave it all up when his identity was blown". Two different directions for two different franchises..and the audience can decide which one (or both) they want to continue following...

For Holland's part, he absolutely plans to continue in Sony Spider-Man movies. I doubt Disney would block him, as it would only be spiteful and cause more bad publicity.

I'm surprised they didn't have a non-compete clause from the start!

Feige is saying now that the arrangement was never expected to last forever, and he came to peace with it long ago. The studios just go their seperate ways now, with no need to refer to each other's films.

...and now it's apparently open again.

This would make perfect sense. As I said before, there's no reason the Tom Hardy Venom couldn't fit right in with the MCU, or even show up for an Avengers outing.

I don't care a lick for Venom, but having him in a MCU film is certainly not a deal-breaker for me. Let the gooey kid play, and bring along Spidey!

There's been a frequently-denied (but too plausible) fan rumor that MCU had been HOPING to have Captain Marvel be the new humorless hard-ass mentor to funny young foil Peter Parker after Tony/Nick, and team them up in their next two sequels...And that Sony taking their Spidey and going home was the perfect excuse for Disney to quietly retire those plans under the radar.
(As, y'know, it's not like anyone wanted to admit the fans actually hated Brie Larson, but well, hey, Sony, whatcha gonna do, hands are tied...)

The frequent rumor-denying has been a little protesting-too-much over the top, and hopefully this doesn't mean MCU thinks they've got a new chance to dig old thrown-away memos back again for lack of new projects.

....which is why Captain Marvel made $425 million stateside and a billion worldwide. You know, because everyone hated it.

You don't hate a movie when you pay your ten bucks to walk INTO it... :roll:
(And oo, tell us more about the worldwide grosses!...Did China like it?)

More to the point, some at the studio commented that her appearance in Endgame demonstrated WHY audiences hadn't warmed to her:
She was absent for most of the Avengers' entire forming, humorlessly barges in one movie before the climax misandrically barking orders and rubbing the other heroes the wrong way, and assumes--from her private in-buddyship with Nick--that she's been sent to take over the entire team just because she has more Cosmic Power than the rest put together, even though she's clearly not that enthusiastic about being Earth's mightiest hero...So, why is she in the movie again? Oh, right, she was the Deus Ex Machina they needed to go fetch Tony's ship light-years across the galaxy all by herself, and then disappear again until the climax.

That's a big uphill battle to create audience sympathy for, especially when Cap, Tony and even Star Lord had become cuddly audience staples for the last nine years.
The only hope was to try and attach humor to her, and another actual human being to pretend to care about, but even that's got its work cut out for it.
