So a few months back Spider-man Homecoming producer on the Sony side of things Amy Pascal revealed the deal in which Marvel get to share the use of the character for their cinematic universe expires after the sequel to the upcoming movie and shortly after Kevin Feige confirmed this. This wasn’t to suggest however that a new deal couldn’t be worked out to continue the story of the character in the MCU but it was assumed this wouldn’t be worked out until a few years down the line.
In a recent interview however, star Tom Holland announced that there would be a Spider-man 2 and 3 when it was only previously confirmed that there would be a second one. When he was told that was new information Holland apologised to Marvel for spilling the info.
Does this confirm that the deal has already been renegotiated? no probably not. I couldn’t see any of those talks seriously happening until at least after Homecoming so that both studios can asses the performance of the movie. I can however imagine that Marvel are discussing future stories in anticipation of renewing the deal. I for one hope they do renew the contract and continue sharing the character for future movies.
Do you think Marvel and Sony will resign? Do you think they should? Let me know in the comments. Thanks for reading and until next time, take it easy.
