Tom Holland and Kevin Feige have finally acknowledged the divorce between Marvel and Sony that has left the future of the Spider-Man franchise in question.
Earlier this week, it was revealed that lengthy dispute between Disney and Sony over a 50/50 co-financing stake for future Spider-Man films resulted in the latter parting ways with the mouse house going forward. Sony reportedly has two more Spider-Man films in development which are both intended to have Tom Holland reprise his role. But Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige will no longer take the creative lead after the two studios failed to reach an agreement. It’s been suggested that the dispute itself was actually over a producer credit and that negotiations for Kevin Feige to produce more Spider-Man films featuring Tom Holland are still ongoing but as of now, Kevin Feige appears to be out, and so does Spider-Man himself from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
After a tough week for Tom Holland — which also see the actor lose a director on the long in development Uncharted project at Sony — the Spider-Man star offered some reassurance to fans, telling Entertainment Weekly that no matter what happens between the two companies, he’ll continue to play Spider-Man regardless:
“Basically, we’ve made five great movies. It’s been five amazing years. I’ve had the time of my life. Who knows what the future holds? But all I know is that I’m going to continue playing Spider-Man and having the time of my life. It’s going to be so fun, however we choose to do it. The future for Spider-Man will be different, but it will be equally as awesome and amazing, and we’ll find new ways to make it even cooler.”
As for Kevin Feige himself, the Marvel boss simply said he’ll always be grateful for the opportunity to have co-produced the previous Spider-Man films with Sony:
“I’m feeling about Spider-Man gratitude and joy. We got to make five films within the MCU with Spider-Man: two standalone films and three with the Avengers. It was a dream that I never thought would happen. It was never meant to last forever. We knew there was a finite amount of time that we’d be able to do this, and we told the story we wanted to tell, and I’ll always be thankful for that.”
So what do you think? Are you glad Tom Holland is still on board to play Spider-Man even if that means he won’t be featured in the MCU? Are you still excited for more Spider-Man movies even without Kevin Feige at the helm? Let us know in the comments below!
