Ben Mendelsohn shared his passionate thoughts on Tom Holland’s Spider-Man almost leaving the MCU.
Towards the end of the summer, fans learned that Disney and Sony were unable to agree on new terms to continue co-producing Tom Holland Spider-Man films. While the failure to reach an agreement would have meant Tom Holland’s Spider-Man could no longer exist in the MCU, Disney and Sony eventually settled on a new deal to continue their partnership.
During an interview with Metro.co.uk, Ben Mendelsohn, who reprised his Captain Marvel role as the shapeshifting Skrull Talos in a Spider-Man: Far From Home post-credits scene, shared his thought on Tom Holland’s character nearly being forced out of the MCU. According to Ben Mendelsohn, Marvel could not afford to lose Tom Holland’s Spider-Man because the wall-crawler is the most important hero in the MCU:
“I think what happens in these things is, most of the time, cooler heads prevail. Sometimes we end up in a situation which feels like it’s going to be the lead up to World War I. ‘But s*** man. You can’t lose Spider-Man from the Marvel universe. He’s one of their absolute motherf***ing pornstars. Boy, I could name 30 that you could quite comfortably lose before you start thinking about losing Spider-Man. In fact, I cannot think of a single character who’s more important to Marvel than Spider-Man. You’ve got Hulk, you’ve got Thor…none of them are as important as Spider-Man. None of them.’
When contemplating what would have happened had Tom Holland’s Spider-Man left the MCU, Ben Mendelsohn said, “It would have been a disaster.” Do you agree with Ben Mendelsohn’s assessment of the importance of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man? Let us know your thoughts on Ben Mendelsohn’s comments below!
