Kevin Feige has confirmed that more Spider-Man movies are in the works in a bid to ease any anxiety in fans after the worry that Sony and Disney’s dispute caused last time.
The Marvel Studios boss has revealed that he and producer Amy Pascal are ‘beginning to develop’ a new project as he said that he didn’t want fans to be concerned after the financial dispute between Sony and Disney put the newly-released Spider-Man: No Way Home into some doubt.
Feige told the New York Times: ‘Amy and I and Disney and Sony are talking about – yes, we’re actively beginning to develop where the story heads next, which I only say outright because I don’t want fans to go through any separation trauma like what happened after Far From Home.’
Pascal has also expressed hope of a long-term partnership with Kevin and Marvel as the Spider-Man franchise moves into the future.
She shared: ‘We’re producers, so we always believe everything will work out. I love working with Kevin. We have a great partnership, along with Tom Rothman, who runs Sony and has been instrumental, a great leader with great ideas. I hope it lasts forever.’
She also recalled how she sought out Feig for advice after The Amazing Spider-Man 2 received poor reviews but didn’t take his suggestion that it should be Marvel making the next movie well, admitting that she ‘threw a sandwich at him’.
Feige added: ‘I said, “I’m not good at that – giving advice and leaving. The only way I know how to help is if we just make the movie for you.”’
The producer – who also revealed that she warned Tom Holland and Zendaya off a relationship – said that she and Feige are always looking to improve the quality of Spider-Man movies without taking the focus away from Peter Parker.
Admitting that you ‘can’t think of topping yourself in terms of spectacle’, Pascal explained that they ‘never want to lose sight of one thing’, which is Spider-Man’s real-life identity as Peter Parker.
‘That he’s a normal kid. That he is orphaned over and over again,’ she listed. ‘That he’s a teenager, so everything in his life at a heightened pitch and everything matters more than anything. That he’s fuelled by goodness and guilt. That he’s striving for a greater cause, and he’s vilified by the press.’
Spider-Man star Tom had reportedly been set to make some surprise appearances at movie theatres in the US to celebrate the opening weekend of the new film but was forced to cancel just hours before due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is out now.
