Fans of the Spider-Man character from the MCU were worried about the fate of the character after the Jon Watts trilogy ended. Since there were no details regarding the Sony Marvel deal released, there was no idea how the projects would carry after Spider-Man: No Way Home. There was a small amount of excitement with the announcement of the Disney+ animated series Spider-Man: Freshman Year which would give us some backstory for the character. But more news followed with the producer Amy Pascal revealing their plans for the character following the upcoming Jon Watts-directed film. Fans were thrilled with the news of the New Spider-Man Trilogy. But these developments might end up affecting Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Spider-Man is one of the superhero characters that has experienced a lot of reboots over a very small period of time. The character was first introduced with Sam Raimi’s adaptation that saw Tobey Maguire in the lead role. This is still considered one of the best renditions of Spider-Man with a story that brought us closer to the character. The success of these movies proved the love fans had for these characters and hence it was followed with sequels. When the third film in the trilogy failed to attract the audience, Sony decided to reboot the character once again.
This time around we got Marc Webb’s rendition of the character with The Amazing Spider-Man movies that saw Andrew Garfield’s take on the role. But the failure of the second movie made Sony drop the plans for the third film in the series. Kevin Feige actually played a role in convincing them to do so. Marvel Studios and Sony decided to share the character in 2015 and the very next year we got to see a whole new Spider-Man make his debut in Captain America: Civil War. The character was given his solo ventures while appearing in the many other MCU crossover movies that include Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. Now fans will get to see him in his third solo venture which was being considered the second to the last outing of the character in the role for MCU.
New Spider-Man Trilogy
Recent news indicated that Amy Pascal has revealed in an interview with Fandango that we will be getting a whole new trilogy of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man following No Way Home. This interview was actually in celebration of the tickets for the upcoming movie going to sale. Pascal said that this won’t be the last time we will get to witness the result of the partnership between Sony and Marvel.
While being a piece of rather interesting news about the character, this actually affects the excitement for the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home. The fans were wondering what we will be seeing in the movie that would possibly give us some explanation towards the fate of the character in the MCU. There were rumors that we might finally get to see Miles Morales in the MCU and the character would replace Tom Holland’s Spider-Man. But now that we know that there is going to be another trilogy with the actor reprising his role in the character we can be sure that he will survive No Way Home.
The absolute random manner in which this news was announced actually reduces the spectacle this news could have enjoyed otherwise. Marvel and Sony could have actually had an event where they could have shared this information in a much more exciting format. The marketing for Spider-Man: No Way Home is at its peak and this should have been the time when the sole focus was the movie only. All we can be excited about now is how MCU brings the past villains and renditions of Spider-Men on-screen in Spider-Man: No Way Home when the movie comes out in theatres worldwide on 17 December.
It stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, Martin Starr, J.B. Smoove, Marisa Tomei, J.K. Simmons, Jon Favreau, Alfred Molina, Jamie Foxx, Rhys Ifans, Thomas Haden Church and possibly, the previous two Spider-Men.
