There’s ‘No Weirdness’ Between Marvel and Fox, Feige Says

Following the announcement in 2015 of a collaboration between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures on what was to become Spider-Man: Homecoming, and the critical and commercial failure of Fox’s Fantastic Four, many fans had hoped a deal could be reached to bring Marvel’s First Family to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

But in an interview with Collider, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige dismissed both the notion of a similar arrangement with Fox and the characterization of the relationship between the two companies as icy.

“I would say there’s not like there’s anything frozen that there needs to be a thaw,” he said. “There’s no weirdness. It is just very very cut and dry, and they’re doing their thing, and they’re doing it quite well in most regards, and we’re doing our thing.”

That’s still a significant contrast with the relationship Marvel has with Sony, which saw Spider-Man introduced into the MCU last year in Captain America: Civil War ahead of the two studios co-producing Spider-Man: Homecoming and its announced sequel.

That said, Marvel and Fox are co-producing three television projects, FX’s Legion, Fox’s upcoming X-Men drama The Gifted, and the newly announced Deadpool animated comedy from FXX and Donald Glover.

Arriving July 7, director Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Homecoming stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr.
