After sending the internet into a frenzy last week with speculation and various stories about conflicting reports, Sony’s Amy Pascal is finally on the same page as her colleagues about Spider-Man.
Previously Pascal seemed to claim that Tom Holland’s version of Spidey from Spider-Man: Homecoming would be crossing back and forth between the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Sony’s Marvel Universe films like Venom and the Silver Sable and Black Cat film Silver and Black. She claimed they would be “adjacent” universes that would not be connected fully but would share the Spider-Man.
This was the complete opposite of what others including Marvel President Kevin Feige and director Jon Watts were saying.
Pascal’s reversal on the matter was reported by Fandango’s Managing Editor Erik Davis through Twitter, where he shared a quote from his interview with Pascal.
The reversal of her previous statements comes right after Feige’s latest interview with JoBlo where he confirmed that Spider-Man: Homecoming and it’s unnamed 2019 sequel are the only Sony films that are part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
This of course isn’t the first time that Pascal has sent the internet into a frenzy surrounding the Spider-Man deal. While she helped make this deal happen in her former position as Sony Pictures chairperson, in March Pascal spoke to CosmicBookNews and suggested that the deal with Marvel would come to an end after Homecoming 2 in 2019.
Currently the two solo movies and appearances in Avengers: Infinity War & the untitled Avengers 4, after his debut in Captain America: Civil War, are the only contracted appearances set for Holland’s Spider-Man. After that is unclear, but the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe after that point is unclear.
Spider-Man: Homecoming opens on July 7.
