Spider-Man: Far From Home was the subject to many rumors including an interesting one that had Norman Osborn buying Avengers Tower. Now we know what the people behind the film thought of the rumors.
When asked about the current owners of the former Avengers Tower, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige responded with what came off as a joke. Apparently, the Marvel Studios president simply said that he didn’t see a sign on the building and didn’t think they had put one up yet:
“I didn’t see a sign there yet. I don’t think they put the sign up.”
Spider-Man: Far From Home director Jon Watts, however, had a more involved response to the Oscorp building rumors. Apparently, he and the crew came close to having a heart attack when they heard that the after-credits scenes had leaked. But then they found out that the rumors involved the Oscorp building and laughed it off:
“Then it ended up being this crazy Oscorp thing. I love the confidence in which that was written. Like I love that because you know so much of the fun of these movies is trying to guess what’s real and what’s not and you know the idea of a completely fake rumor about this movie that’s about illusions and deceptions, like it’s really on message.”
Oscorp, of course, is the company that is run by Norman Osborn, Spider-Man’s arch nemesis. Since the films first started back in 2002, Norman Osborn and/or Oscorp has played a role in every Spider-Man film before the MCU. But it looks like, for the time, Oscorp will remain apart from the MCU’s version of Spider-Man for now.
What do you all make of this? Do you think Oscorp will appear in the MCU? Let us know what you think in the comments below!

Veteran X-Men producer Simon Kinberg makes his directorial debut with Dark Phoenix in addition to producing the film with Hutch Parker, Lauren Schuler Donner and Todd Hallowell. Dark Phoenix is expected to be Fox's final X-Men film featuring the core X-Men cast in the cinematic universe launched by director Bryan Singer in 2000 with the Disney-Fox merger now complete.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. Here's the film's synopsis:
“This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.”
Dark Phoenix is set to hit theaters on June 7, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the X-Men.
