Spider-Man’s Exit Plan From Marvel Universe Happening After Avengers Infinity Wars?
By Shawn Rice
Has Sony Pictures already made a decision of when to end its partnership with Marvel Studios over the use of Spider-Man? “Spider-Man: Homecoming” just saw its second trailer released but reports also came out about related projects with “Venom” and “Black Cat & Silver Sable” both in the works. These films will have no connection to the MCU or ‘Homecoming.’
Now, in a surprising comment given during an interview with Cosmic Book News (via Gizmodo), Amy Pascal, the film’s producer and the former chief of Sony Pictures, revealed that the Marvel and Sony collaboration may be over after the already-planned sequel to ‘Homecoming’ is done.
“One of the things that I think is so amazing about this experience is that you don’t have studios deciding to work together to make a film very often. In fact, it may never happen again – after we do the sequel.
Because Sony and Disney and Marvel all decided that the right thing to do was to allow Peter Parker and Spider-Man to be in the MCU, and to work with the Marvel guys and have them produce this film, and I think that was a very rare thing for three companies to do and a very brilliant thing for them to decide to do, because there are only so many stories that you know you can tell again and again and again about Spidey, and this is something that we would never been able to do in any other way. So, it was a very selfless thing that was very smart on the part of all the companies.”
Though Pascal is a producer on ‘Homecoming,’ she does not speak officially for Sony even as her production studio has an ongoing deal with them. As of right now, her comments could be a negotiation tactic by using the press for the inevitable contract renegotiations that will likely have to be locked down before ‘Homecoming 2′ opens.
Here are some reactions from social media.

How does it even make sense for Spider-Man to be out of the MCU after featuring him in other Marvel movies already? Ffs Sony.

I really hope Sony don’t end working with Marvel. It would really mean spirited to let Marvel do all the legwork, in Spidey + Avengers movie
