The shocking split between The Walt Disney Company and Sony Pictures, the two studios that have shared the film rights to Spider-Man since 2016, has sent the Internet into an uproar. However, some are still able to find humor in the situation. Case in point: Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds.
On Twitter, a fan asked Reynolds if it was now possible to see him and Tom Holland team up for a Spider-Man/Deadpool movie, to which the actor replied, "You can. But you can only see it in my heart."

Indeed, the prospect of seeing the web-slinger team up with the Merc With a Mouth onscreen is now just as unlikely as seeing him interact with Daredevil or the Fantastic Four. With the character solely in the hands of Sony, though, other collaborations -- such as one with Tom Hardy's Venom -- are entirely possible, albeit far less enticing from the perspective of most fans.
Now in theaters, director Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, JB Smoove, Jacob Batalon and Martin Starr, with Marisa Tomei and Jake Gyllenhaal.
