Despite the recent issues with the Spider-Man legacy thanks to Disney and Sony, actor Tom Holland has stated he’ll still keep on with the iconic role.
Speaking at Philadelphia’s Keystone Comic-Con [via ComicBook.com] Holland said: “There’s definitely more to come. We sat down with some of our creatives. We pitched Spider-Man 3, which is going to be something very special. It’s going to be something very different.”
Holland went on to say: “It’s really exciting, the ideas we have for how we can expand the Spider-Man world and bring new characters into it, and crossover with other people… and it’s only going to get bigger and better from here, which is great.”
It was recently reported that Spider-Man was out of the MCU following Disney’s purchase of Marvel, after they allegedly failed to reach an agreement with Sony over the use of the Spider-Man character.
According to Deadline, Disney had asked for a 50/50 co-financing agreement between the two studios on future Spider-Man films but Sony turned that initial offer down.
Sony then came forward with a proposition to keep the arrangement similar to the terms that dictated the first two Spider-Man MCU films, meaning that Disney would only receive 5% of first dollar gross, but apparently Disney then further refused that deal.
Deadline also claims that Sony believes it will manage perfectly fine without Feige and the Marvel gang, despite the fact that his last few films for the franchise were some of the highest grossing blockbusters of all time.
Tom’s dad Dominic said: “I know nothing about the impasse between Sony and Marvel. I have no inside track on such issues. But whatever is decided by the big suits at these big Hollywood studios – my hunch is that the show will continue,
“Too much at stake and too many dollars riding on it – and besides, everyone wants the same thing; namely, Spider-Man on large screens keeping people safe and entertained,
“And with Tom in the suit, for the time-being at least.”
It seems that the cinema giants are still trying to reach a suitable agreement.
