Amy Pascal, a producer of Sony Pictures and Disney-owned Marvel Studios who jointly made Spider-Man franchise through her Pascal Pictures banner, says that she “couldn’t be happier” on the untitled Spider-Man: Far From Home sequel both companies will collaborate again.
“This is terrific…”
“This is terrific,” Pascal said in a statement Friday. “Peter Parker’s story took a dramatic turn in Far From Home and I could not be happier we will all be working together as we see where his journey goes. This has been a winning partnership for the studios, the franchise and the fans and I’m overjoyed it will continue.”
Kevin Fiege talks about Spiderman
In his own words Friday, Feige pointed out that Holland’s Spidey would then join Sony’s Universe of Marvel Characters — the name given to Sony’s separate universe made without Marvel’s involvement, home to Venom, and soon to Morbius among many other planned spinoffs — when this new deal was completed.
“I am thrilled that Spidey’s journey in the MCU will continue, and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited that we get to keep working on it,” Feige said. “Spider-Man is a powerful icon and hero whose story crosses all ages and audiences around the globe. He also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes, so as Sony continues to develop their own Spidey-verse you never know what surprises the future might hold.”
Producer Pascal talks about the Franchise
Pascal, a key player in the original five-movie deal that saw Spider-Man appear in Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, said it was important to be able to stand alone for all Spider-Man-based movies.
“The most important thing is that each of these movies can stand on their own,” Pascal said in an interview when asked if Morbius or planned spinoff Kraven the Hunter might share a universe with Holland’s Spider-Man. “So I think the first thing for us to think about is: Venom has to stand on its own, Far From Home has to stand on its own, [Spider-Man: Into the] Spider-Verse has to stand on its own. They all have to be great movies themselves. And then the possibilities are endless.”
