Sony Wants Tom Holland’s Spider-Man to Stay in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s no secret that Tom Holland has won the hearts of Marvel fans of all ages with his performance as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Fans were horribly blindsided by what appeared to be a falling out between Sony and Disney over the use of the character and it seemed Spidey was out of the MCU for good, until fans and Tom Holland himself intervened and helped the studios see that the best thing for the character, studios, and the fans would be to work out their differences.
Luckily, Sony and Disney were able to work out a temporary deal, but it seems Sony is willing to continue this partnership far past the established 3rd stand alone Spider-Man film.
Sony President, Tom Rothman, openly shared his optimism for even more work with Disney and Marvel Studios in the future, saying: “I hope so. I think this was a classic win-win-win. I think it was a win for Sony. I think it was a win for Disney. I think it was a win for fans and moviegoers. The only thing I would say about that is that news cycles and the rhythm of negotiations don’t necessarily overlap… I think we would have gotten there and the news got ahead of some things.”
“I am thrilled that Spidey’s journey in the MCU will continue, and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited that we get to keep working on it,” Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige shared. “Spider-Man is a powerful icon and hero whose story crosses all ages and audiences around the globe. He also 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.”
As avid Marvel fans, we are excited to hear Sony is hopeful and willing to share the future of Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man with Marvel Studios and Disney, and we can’t wait to see Spider-Man 3 in theaters July 16, 2021. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for all things Marvel!
