After the positive response to the recently released ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home,’ Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has revealed that the studio and Sony are actively producing at least one more film for the ‘Spider-Man’ franchise. The Marvel Studios president says he outright confirmed the news “because I don’t want fans to go through any separation trauma like what happened after ‘Far from Home.’
“The quotes came from an interview with the New York Times published on Friday in which both Feige and Amy Pascal, the producer of ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home,’ confirmed that their respective studios are currently inactive talks about where to take the superhero following the events of Tom Holland’s third turn as the famed web-slinger. “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. That will not be occurring this time,” said Feige.
For the uninitiated, it was reported in August 2019 that negotiations between Sony film studio president Tom Rothman and Feige on the then-untitled third ‘Spider-Man’ picture had broken down, only two months after the release of Spider-Man, Far from Home. The arrangement fell through and with it, the studios’ ‘Spider-Man’ partnership was reportedly due to Disney’s demands for a bigger percentage of the third film’s gross, as well as all merchandise money, which Sony declined. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the dispute between Disney and Sony was finally resolved in September 2019, thanks in part to Holland himself.
