Spider-Man won’t return to Marvel films anytime soon, Sony boss says
Sadly, Sony Pictures chairman and CEO Tony Vinciquerra has admitted that “the door is closed” on the web-slinger returning.
It was earlier reported that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige will no longer produce future spidey films due to the inability of the companies to “reach new terms that would have given (Sony) a co-financing stake going forward."
There are two more Spider-Man films in the works directed by Jon Watts and again starring Tom Holland. However, Feige won’t be the lead creative producer.
Now, Vinciquerra is telling Variety that for the time being no deal will be made to keep Spider-Man around the MCU.
“For the moment the door is closed,” Vinciquerra says before clarifying there is “no ill will” between Sony and Marvel and hinting there could be a possible resolution in the future.
“We had a great run with [Feige] on Spider-Man movies,” Vinciquerra said.
“We tried to see if there’s a way to work it out… the Marvel people are terrific people. We have great respect for them, but on the other hand we have some pretty terrific people of our own. Kevin didn’t do all the work.”
