Tom Holland’s Spider-Man is back in MCU as Marvel and Sony strike deal


Spider-Man fans can rejoice, as the third Tom Holland movie will be produced by Marvel.

That’s right, after we thought the company would be fully losing one of their much loved characters to Sony, Disney have gone and announced the president of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige will take the helm.
The 46-year-old revealed how excited he is to continue Spidey’s story – and we’re happy it’s in safe hands.
He said in a statement: ‘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.
‘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.’

Amy Pascal will also produce through Pascal Pictures, and is equally thrilled by the news.
‘This is terrific. Peter Parker’s story took a dramatic turn in Far From Home and I could not be happier we will all be working together as we see where his journey goes,’ she said.
‘This has been a winning partnership for the studios, the franchise and the fans and I’m overjoyed it will continue.’

It was also announced that Tom Holland will be appearing as the iconic character in another Marvel hit – however, the team are remaining tight lipped over which one exactly.

The news comes after Sony recently announced they had been unable to reach a financing agreement with Marvel Studios on the two Spider-Man movies reportedly in the works.
Tom acknowledged the fan backlash,
admitting it’s been ‘an interesting couple of weeks’ for the studio.
However, he remained confident that the superhero franchise will do ‘just fine’ without Marvel and said Sony plans to launch its own universe using the myriad of Spider-Man characters.
Yet despite remaining positive, Avengers: Endgame co-director Joe Russo branded Sony’s decision a ‘tragic mistake’.
Speaking about the split, he told Toronto Sun: ‘It was a tenuous, fraught union throughout the whole process.
‘But, I will say, stepping back and trying to be objective as possible, that I think it’s a tragic mistake on Sony’s part to think that they can replicate Kevin’s penchant for telling incredible stories and the amazing success he has had over the years.’
