Earlier today, tickets went on sale for “Spider-Man: No Way Home”, which is coming to cinemas in December and while this film is the last of the “home” trilogy, this isn’t going to be the last of Tom Holland as Spider-Man in the MCU.
There had been speculation that Marvel and Sony’s business relationship was potentially going to end following “Spider-Man: No Way Home”. With Sony going back to making its own Spider-Man movies, but with the new film bringing in characters from previous Spider-Man films, it’s left many wondering where Spider-Man could be going next, and now we have an idea.
In an interview, Sony Producer Amy Pascal revealed in an interview with Fandango, that:
This is not the last movie that we are going to make with Marvel – [this is not] the last Spider-Man movie. We are getting ready to make the next Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland and Marvel, it just isn’t part of… we’re thinking of this as three films, and now we’re going to go onto the next three. This is not the last of our MCU movies.
She also went on to confirm that:
Marvel and Sony are going to keep going together as partners.
The partnership between Sony and Marvel hasn’t always been plain sailing, as the two companies had a public spat a few years ago over the future of Spider-Man and his involvement in the MCU. This resulted in a new deal, which saw Marvel Studios become a bigger partner and taking on some of the financial risks for the film.
But the benefits of this deal have always been apparent, especially from fans side and Amy Pascal explained the benefits:
Spider-Man is always very special and different from everything else, but I think the beautiful thing is you had two big corporations that decided to work together for the good of the story and the character, and I don’t think that’s always the spirit that you see. Yeah, working together and helping each other make things be better is a good model.
With the Marvel Cinematic Universe opening up to the mutliverse, it’s allowing Sony a bit more flexibility. Amy also explained how the two film universes will work:
Well, there’s the Marvel Universe, which is one container and then there’s the Spider-Verse movies, which are different and then there’s the other universe where the Sony characters are in. We all are very respectful of each other and work together and make sure that we’re only being additive.
I think you’re going to see a lot of people exploring those worlds because it’s interesting. The parallel universes make for so many interesting stories, but I don’t think that every single movie is going to end up taking place in the multiverse. I think it’s really exciting, and this movie certainly does.
So it doesn’t look like Spider-Man is going anywhere soon, as both Disney and Sony are benefiting from their partnership. Only earlier this year, they announced a new deal, where Disney will have access to the “pay 2” window to all of Sony’s films from 2022 and selected library titles like Spider-Man for Disney+ in the US. So this means the new untitled trilogy will be coming to Disney+ in the US after they’ve been released in cinemas and complete the “pay 1” window on Netflix.
What do you think of Sony and Marvel making more Spider-Man movies together?
