Fans hoping to see a positive resolution to the Spider-Man situation will be disappointed by this latest development, as Sony’s chairman Tony Vinciquerra has confirmed that talks with Marvel have ceased…
Spider-Man is now officially out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it doesn’t seem like he’ll be crawling back in any time soon.
Although fans were led to believe that Sony Pictures and Disney/Marvel could still return to the table, Sony chairman and CEO Tony Vinciquerra told Variety that “the door is closed” when it comes to the possibility of Peter Parker showing up in The MCU – for the foreseeable future, at least. However, he did add that “it’s a long life,” which could suggest that both parties will renegotiate… eventually!
In the meantime, The Web-Head will forge a new path in Sony’s “Spider-Verse,” and Vinciquerra seems very confident that the character will continue his success without the help of Kevin Feige. “Spiderman was fine before the event movies, did better with the event movies, and now that we have our own universe, he will play off the other characters as well,” he said. “I think we’re pretty capable of doing what we have to do here.”
Vinciquerra also maintains that there’s “no ill will” between Sony and Marvel, so perhaps when Spidey is done playing with Venom, Morbius and co. we will see another team-up with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
