One that not only leaves Holland’s Spider-Man split between the two, but fans wondering…what the hell? Granted things aren’t as confusing as say Netflix’s decision to completely cancel their Marvel content, but the decision still left fans confused. There’s money involved, of course, but what now? Holland has confirmed that he is still Spider-Man, but now he’s in Sony’s hands. Hands that Holland wants fans to have confidence in:
“I’m not shy about expressing how incredible the last five years have been with Marvel. I’ve truly had the time of my life, and in so many respects, they have made my dreams come true as an actor. Sony has also been really good to me, and the global success of Spider-Man: Far From Home is a real testament to their support, skill and commitment. The legacy and future of Spidey rests in Sony’s safe hands. I really am nothing but grateful, and I’ve made friends for life along the way.'”
Of course, Holland has to be in good standing with both – after all, Sony could easily recast. Kevin Feige may have previously said at D23 that he always knew the deal between Disney and Sony had an expiration date, but are any of us buying that? The MCU set him up to be such an integral part of the universe, especially after Iron Man’s death. It seems that that legacy will never go on and we will probably never deal with the aftermath of Far From Home. All of those loose threads would not have been left undone if more story content wasn’t intended.
What do you think? Does Sony taking hold of Spider-Man, the current one; make sense?
A girl with too many fandoms to count.
