It’s old news that Sony and Marvel have parted ways and we’re all wondering just what that means for the Tom Holland Spider-Man series. Holland has played the web-slinger in ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming,’ ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ ‘Avengers: Endgame,’ and most recently ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home.’ We Spidey fans feel like we’ve gotten to know the Holland version like an old friend so it’s difficult to imagine how he could exist outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And yet, here we are. Speculation abounds and the story seems to change from one day to the next.
This perfect synergy has been the love child of Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige, executive director on nearly every film in the MCU. About a month after the initial reports that Spider-Man had been torn from the tender embrace of the MCU, we heard that Disney (who owns Marvel) and Sony agreed to a new deal. Feige will produce one more stand-alone movie for Sony, and the hero will appear in one more MCU film.
“[Spider-Man] happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes, so as Sony continues to develop their own Spidey-verse you never know what surprises the future might hold.”
