Sony Exec Hints At Spider-Man’s Film Future

‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ was a massive hit with critics and audiences, making over a billion dollars at the box office when it premiered in December 2021. Since its release, there have been questions as to how a sequel would work. Tom Holland is the one currently wearing the webs in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as part of a deal that Sony Pictures has to “loan” Spider-Man to Disney.
There has been rampant speculation on a fourth film in the MCU or if Sony Pictures will expand their own Spidey movie franchise. Holland and director Jon Watts have been avoiding directly answering on the possibility of a return.
Sony Chairman Tom Rothman recently had a conversation with Deadline about the future of the web-slinger in film that shed some light on the matter.
“We have our Marvel business, which breaks into three tranches,” he explained. “There are the Spider-Man movies, and we’re currently at work on two Spider-Verse sequels to our Oscar-winning animated movie, with Lord and Miller. We hope to get working on the next Spider-Man movie.”
When asked directly if Watts, Holland, and Zendaya would be making a comeback, Rothman said he hoped that they would get “That whole group, we hope.”
“Then there are movies I would call adjunct to the Spider-Man universe. That’s Kraven, which we’re shooting now, and Madam Web, which we’ll start in the spring with S.J. Clarkson directing. And then there are many Marvel characters that are standalone. When I took over Sony, it was said, oh, Sony has no IP. Not true. We actually had fantastic IP,” he replied.
Sony has confirmed that ‘Kraven the Hunter,’ ‘Madam Web,’ ‘El Muerto,’ and a third ‘Venom’ film are all at some stage of development as part of the “Sony Spider-Man Universe.” The most recent release ‘Morbius’ starring Jared Leto was not received well at the box office. strives to be an apolitical, balanced and based pop culture news outlet.
