Spidey fans are worried about his future in the MCU. After all, No Way Home is the last movie in the Spider-Man trilogy. So is it the end of Peter Parker’s journey here?
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige doesn’t think so. He confirmed that Spider-Man: No Way Home will indeed not be the last MCU Spider-Man movie. His statement stopped all speculation about Tom Holland’s future in the franchise. But this has brought forth another worry to the forefront of Spider-Man fans’ minds. They think that another Marvel-Sony breakup is coming soon. However, that’s unlikely to happen.
Fans will remember what happened on August 20, 2019. It was a terrifying day for all spidey and MCU fans. Negotiations between Disney and Sony over the cinematic future of Spider-Man stalled completely for some time. So both the studios parted ways for a while, and Spider-Man was at risk of saying goodbye to the MCU. This sparked global outrage. Most people blamed Sony for their idiocy.
Thankfully, within a couple of days, it was revealed that Spider-Man wasn’t leaving the MCU at all. Over time both companies came to a compromise because money was at stake. And now he will keep on staying in the MCU. However, it’s understandable how fans might feel uneasy after the entire Spider Gate. And as such, they will want confirmation about spidey staying home after Spider-Man: No Way Home. Thankfully, that’s what Kevin Feige gave them.
During an interview with Empire magazine, Feige explained what happened back then:
“I was mentally preparing to emotionally separate from it. I didn’t love it, but it is what it is. And then, thankfully, it came back together.”
As for whether something similar could happen again in the future, Feige said that he doesn’t think so. Here’s his statement:
“I don’t anticipate us going through that emotional rollercoaster, or putting fans through that emotional rollercoaster, again.”
So this should ease the minds of Spidey fans who are worried about the future of the web-slinger after Spider-Man: No Way Home. Sony and Marvel’s partnership might be better than ever. After all, note that Venom is officially integrated into the MCU through the multiverse, so there’s just no doubt that this partnership will only keep on growing.
