Sony Pictures producers keep wanting to find a way to bring Marvel’s Spider-Man into their films and the ties between these two studios almost did get a little closer as Tom Holland at one point was meant to be included in ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse‘ but his cameo was cut at some point in production.
According to the actor:
“At one point, I was supposed to be in it. Yeah, there was going to be another Peter Parker. It was a scene in a train station or something, and it was going to be like an Easter egg. I was gonna walk through the background and say like, ‘Hey, kid!’ or something. Never happened. Heartbroken.”
There is always a chance that this could still happen in the sequel to ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.’ Hopefully, Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios have a better working relationship at that point. Rumors had it pegged that if ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ didn’t earn $1 billion at the box office that Sony could take back the character’s rights. If the two can play ball together, it would be crushingly moving to see the MCU’s origin story play out on screen with Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark and potentially even Thanos making a brief appearance.
