Marvel has ignited their cinematic world on fire as they announced they will be welcoming Spider-Man to their long list of superhero movie franchises. However, this comes with a catch.

Andrew Garfield, who to many is the best part of the films, is apparently not involved as the studio moves forward. Social media is having a field day with the news, so much so, that Garfield is trending on Twitter, where fans are in mourning at his departure.

It is unclear, whether the actor whom we have grown accustomed to as Spidey, knew before-hand about his impending departure. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Sony Pictures -- of hacking fame -- will partner with Disney to revamp the popular character, without Garfield in the role.

The new Spider-Man will likely be introduced in another Marvel film, 'Captain America: Civil War' where the character has a major role.

Even though Garfield has made 'The Amazing Spider-Man' films almost $500 million worldwide, not bad by any means, they was not received well by critics and fans alike. Moreover, the Sony Pictures scandal revealed leaked emails which suggested Marvel would take over the 'Spider-Man' without Andrew.

After the expected cameo on 'Captain America: Civil War' it is thought that the new and improved 'Spider-Man' will debut in a stand-alone film on July 28, 2017.
