The Spider-Man split between Disney (Marvel Studios) and Sony is easily the most talked about entertainment news story in quite a while, as many fans are letting their strong reactions to the whole situation be heard – and be heard very loudly. While the majority seems to be against Sony, there are quite a bit going against Disney as well. #BoycottSony and #BoycottDisney are both popular hashtags on Twitter at the moment.
Here’s some of the reaction:

disney: fuck u then u won’t be getting anything say bye to spidey in mcu

sony is a little company compared to disney and all they do was a business move. i know yall r teenagers and don’t understand how that works but stop trying to boycott a company where a lot of people work. disney is selfish and power hungry. get mad at them. https://t.co/YWjtueuxlk

Spiderman was the only thing that kept my interest in the MCU, but I’m not gonna boycott because Disney want more money after they realized Spiderman sold well.

Disney demanded Sony give them a 50/50 deal for Spiderman. Sony wanted to keep the current agreement, & went public about it.
Disney has lauched a bot army to attack Sony tonight using #SaveSpiderman

This is unquestionably a positive thing for Hollywood. It was already pretty clear none of these people actually cared about film but it’s outright depressing watching the “boycott Sony” guys shill shamelessly for a suffocating megacorporation because “my shared universe!1!”
