During a sit down with Superhero Hype, Kevin Feige discussed the new working relationship between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures that injected Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The partnership: “We’re producing that movie for Sony and in partnership with Amy Pascal, so it’s being going through the same process of any other Marvel film would, and it’s been great. Tom Rothman at Sony has been very supportive in the decisions and obviously the two big ones we announced this week.”
Will we see other Spider-Man characters: “Right now, it’s all about producing the new stand-alone Spider-Man movie. That’s what Sony is focused on That’s what we’re focused on, and whatever happened before that or after that, sort of remains to be seen, but it’s all about producing the best Spider-Man movie we can, certainly within the Sony Universe, next July.”
Is this an entirely new Spider-Man: “We’re going to have it be its own thing but some of those Spider-Man films… I think Spider-Man 2 is one of the best superhero movies ever, so that’s a lot to live up to.”
