Tom Holland and Marvel boss Kevin Feige have made their first comments regarding the Disney-Sony rift and the future of Spiderman for the first time.
Disney revealed earlier in the week that it would not continue the Sony partnership regarding the Spider Man franchise due to a disagreement about how to split the money. Sony owns the film rights and allowed Marvel to include Spider Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Captain America: Civil War.
After the recent Spider Man: Far From Home became Sony’s highest earning film, Disney asked to share the financing and Sony disagreed. Holland is therefore out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe at least until the two companies make a deal.
Holland told EW, “Basically, we’ve made five great movies. It’s been five amazing years. I’ve had the time of my life. Who knows what the future holds? But all I know is that I’m going to continue playing Spider-Man and having the time of my life. It’s going to be so fun, however we choose to do it. The future for Spider-Man will be different, but it will be equally as awesome and amazing, and we’ll find new ways to make it even cooler.”
Marvel boss Kevin Feige also commented on the issue. He said, “I’m feeling about Spider-Man gratitude and joy. We got to make five films within the MCU with Spider-Man: two standalone films and three with the Avengers. It was a dream that I never thought would happen. It was never meant to last forever. We knew there was a finite amount of time that we’d be able to do this, and we told the story we wanted to tell, and I’ll always be thankful for that.”
Disney and Sony have not yet reached an agreement about the future of SpiderMan.
