Spider-Man: No Way Home is shaping up to be this year’s most talked about and hyped film of the year. The third installment of Marvel’s favorite wall-crawler is said to be the culmination of all seven previous live action Spider-Man films.
This film is becoming a huge event that some might say rivals even the Avengers: Endgame hype. While we know that No Way Home is the conclusion to Holland’s Spider-Man film trilogy, Sony Pictures Producer Amy Pascal recently announced that Sony and Marvel plan on making three more solo films starring Holland’s Spider-Man set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Pascal’s announcement brought joy and excitement to fans, leading up to last night’s Hollywood Premiere of No Way Home. Stars, writers, staff, director, and producers were present to celebrate with the media, including Sony Pictures CEO Tom Rothman. Here’s where things get interesting.
Tom Rothman Talks Spider-Man After No Way Home
During one of the red carpet interviews, Rothman was asked about the future of Holland’s Spider-Man in other Marvel projects. Let’s just say his answer was very intriguing:
Rothman was asked on what the future holds for Holland’s Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and he responded by explaining that they would lend back characters from Marvel Studios and their studio.
He explained that Sony had that Sony has one lend back left to give to Marvel Studios, but also stated that Sony and Marvel have a “terrific working relationship.” He later added that:
“No specific plans, but it’s reciprocal. We lend one, then they lend one, and that’s how Benedict [Cumberbatch] is in this movie, so we have one more lend back that is committed. But the thing that I can say, and this is actually the accurate scoop on this, which is that the two companies have a terrific working relationship and I think it’s a mutual hope that that would continue, but there really isn’t anything definitive at this moment because the truth of the matter is we gotta ride this puppy and see what happens.”
It’s safe to say that Spider-Man’s future is bright. Rothman also explained about lending a character, basically it might mean that since Sony’ owns Spider-Man he’s allowed to be in Marvel Studios big event films as long as they lend one of their characters in one of their solo films. Examples include Iron Man and Captain America being in Homecoming, Nick Fury and Agent Maria Hill in Far From Home, and then now Dr. Strange in No Way Home. So don’t be surprised if we see another Avenger team up with Holland’s Spider-Man in his next solo adventure!
