Sony and Disney ending their partnership has led to uncertainty about the future of Spider-Man in Marvel Cinematic Universe films. Series star Tom Holland and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige have now shared their feelings on the matter.
Holland has played Peter Parker/Spider-Man since the character's first MCU appearance in 2016's Captain America: Civil War. True to character, Holland seemed optimistic about Spider-Man's future. “It’s been five amazing years. I’ve had the time of my life. Who knows what the future holds?" he told EW.
Holland acknowledged that the future of Spider-Man will be different, but says that he will continue playing the character and will have a great time doing it.
Feige also seemed to be in good spirits, saying he felt "gratitude and joy," pointing to the fact Marvel Studios were able to make five films with Spider-Man. "It was a dream that I never thought would happen," Feige said.
It seemed like Feige was prepared for an end to Spider-Man in the MCU. "It was never meant to last forever," he said. "We knew there was a finite amount of time that we’d be able to do this, and we told the story we wanted to tell, and I’ll always be thankful for that.”
Holland will be voicing a main character in the upcoming Pixar film, Onward. The film will also features the voices of Chris Pratt, Octavia Spencer and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Written and directed by Dan Scanlon, Onward opens on March 6, 2020.
