Spider-Man stays at home as Sony announced more movies in the MCU. In a Fandango interview, producer Amy Pascal showed us the goods.
In one quick move, Pascal ripped rage-bait and bogus rumors apart.
First, she acknowledged Tom Holland isn’t leaving.
Indeed, Spider-Man: No Way Home isn’t his last.
Spoiler alert: I scooped that on February 28, 2021.
At the time, Tom Holland hit the fire alarm in GQ.
It’s quite sad because this is the end of my contract after this film is up. I really don’t know what the future holds, so I am just savoring every moment, as it could potentially be the last.
Predictably, a number of sites fed into it to boost clicks.
Tom Holland was negotiating through the media.
In reality, no sirens were needed.
There was no fire.
Moreover, there wasn’t even smoke.
Tom Holland is now the MVP.
Sony Confirms Spider-Man Stays In The MCU. What’s Next?
In other words, his rookie days are behind him.
His mentor Robert Downey Jr. nods in approval.
Great shot, kid, that was one in a million.
Sorry, wrong franchise.
On November 18, 2021, Small Screen dug deeper. They reported that Sony offered a five-picture deal to Tom Holland.
We corroborated their report a day later.
Sources tell me the completed agreement ended up higher.
Negotiations are tweaked until all parties are satisfied.
Secondly, Pascal acknowledged that Sony is working with Marvel Studios on another trilogy.
This is not the last movie that we are going to make with Marvel – [this is not] the last Spider-Man movie. We are getting ready to make the next Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland and Marvel. We’re thinking of this as three films, and now we’re going to go onto the next three. This is not the last of our MCU movies.
Sony Confirms Spider-Man Stays In The MCU
On November 1, 2021, I scooped that Tom Holland remains in the MCU after Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Oops, I did it again.
And the trilogy?
I spoiled it on November 19, 2019.
At this point, Sony wonders if their phones are bugged.
Now that’s silly. But is it?
Nevertheless, shortly after the Pascal confession, henchmen tried to backpedal.
According to The Hollywood Reporter:
“Sony insiders note though the studio has a strong relationship with Holland and Feige and hopes to continue their collaboration, there are no official plans for a trilogy at this phase.”
Let me get this straight.
We’re supposed to believe anonymous “Sony insiders” rather than the Spider-Man producer herself?
Are you serious?
LOL, Sony, LOL.
Pascal simply spoke before Marvel Studios wanted this out in the open.
You can already imagine Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige’s scooper sniper popping into view.
Is everyone at Sony spoiler prone?
