The Plans For Spider-Man In The MCU Revealed

In a new article by The Hollywood Reporter, Sony and Marvel Studios' plans for the beloved character of Spider-Man have been revealed.

We first start off with the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming film, which will serve as the first entry of a new trilogy revolving around Tom Holland's Spider-Man. Having a $175 million budget, the film was pitched to directors as "a movie as if John Hughes had directed it." And according to THR's sources, the film does indeed feel like that. The film is so much like a Hughes film that it is more aimed for teens than anyone, and that the cast themselves acted on-set like they were a cast from such a film. Jon Watts, the film's director recalls, "Zendaya came up with a really interesting game that brought everyone closer together immediately, where you sit in a circle and you honestly have to tell everyone your first impression of meeting them."

Looking onwards, we have the spinoffs Sony are developing like the Tom Hardy-starrer Venom - which will feature Carnage too - that comes out October 5, 2018. We then have Silver & Black, a film that will shoot this autumn like Venom, and will feature the characters Black Cat and Silver Sable. Other films being looked at would revolve around characters like Kraven the Hunter and Mysterio. The idea of these spinoffs would be to expand the Spidey-world to build to a film like Sinister Six - which will have Spidey villains cause mayhem - that has been shelved for now.

As for Tom Holland, his contract is made for at least two more Spider-Man films, but can and will show up in other features like Avengers: Infinity War and possibly those spinoffs too.

"Marvel is so good at [working around your schedule]," Holland explained. "They're very respectful of your life, really. They understand that you have to work on other movies, and yeah, they try and fix it up so you can work."

Amy Pascal, one of the main producing bodies of these new Spider-Man related films, spoke recently that the possibility of Spidey showing up in the spinoffs is there.

"There's a chance," she said. "I think one of the things that Kevin has done with Marvel that's so brilliant is by bringing the fans along and making each movie seem like a chapter in a book that you have to read that chapter in order to go forward, and I think the investment that the fans get to feel in being part of a larger story and understanding what's happening is something that I know Sony would want to emulate."

Speaking of contracts, Michael Keaton who plays Vulture in Homecoming, has only been contracted for one film.

For the sequel to Homecoming don't expect to see Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man as Sony are planning to bring in another big character for the second film. Regardless of what will happen in the future, the hunger to make Spider-Man films is strong among all camps, more so in Sony after being in a drought of successes.

"Suddenly this goes from being a third reincarnation and a sixth movie to a first," said Kevin Feige, head of Marvel Studios. "It's the first time Spider-Man gets to interact with the world in which he belongs."
