Sony’s chief communications officer Robert Lawson echoed Feige’s excitement over the deal. He said:

Back in August, the studios announced their departure from each other after contract negotiations went south, and the companies were unable to come to a mutual agreement. The news was met with an outcry from disappointed fans that Spidey would no longer be in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Thankfully, the new agreement will allow for Spidey to swing again.
The next Spider-Man film is set to be released on July 16, 2021.
