Walt Disney Studios CCO Alan Horn and Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group chairman Tom Rothman discussed the renewed partnership between both companies to co-produce more Tom Holland Spider-Man films.
Towards the end of the summer, fans were concerned that Tom Holland’s time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe would come to an end following reports of Disney and Sony’s inability to reach a new agreement to continue co-producing Spider-Man films. Fortunately, Disney and Sony were able to agree on new terms, allowing Tom Holland’s Spider-Man to continue existing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for at least a little while longer.
During a gathering of studio executives for an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Disney’s Alan Horn and Sony’s Tom Rothman reflected on the negotiating period regarding the future of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man. When asked what convinced Sony and Disney to suspend the dispute and work to reach a new agreement, Alan Horn explained that fan response to Tom Holland’s Spider-Man films is what ultimately resulted in both parties realizing a continued partnership was ideal:
“The fan base, which is important to all of us, seemed to really respond to what Tom and his folks have done before with our people. They like the fact that the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Kevin Feige were involved [in the two Spider-Man films]. We heard feedback out there that suggested that joining forces once again was probably really a good idea.”
Of course, the are limits to the new agreement between Disney and Sony that mean Tom Holland’s Spider-Man may not necessarily continue to exist in the MCU afterwards. When asked if Disney and Sonys partnership could continue after Tom Holland’s Spider-Man trilogy concluded, Rothman simply agreed with the statement that the studio has proven they can work without Marvel Studios’ assistance and called the current deal a win for everyone involved:
“Yes, we have. But I agree with my distinguished colleague. This was a classic win-win-win. A win for Sony, a win for Disney, a win for the fans. The only thing I would say is that news cycles and the rhythm of negotiations do not necessarily overlap. And this is, in the words of Shakespeare, a consummation devoutly to be wished. We would have gotten there, and the news got ahead of some things.”
On the same subject, Disney’s Alan Horn simply said that he agreed with the last statement made by Sony’s Rothman.
Marvel Studios and Sony have reached an agreement to co-produce one more Spider-Man film and include the wall-crawler in another MCU project. In the meantime, fans can re-watch Tom Holland’s Spider-Man: Far From Home on all home media formats.
Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man must step up to take on new threats in a world that has changed forever.

Spider-Man: Far From Home is now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-Ray, and DVD.
