2016’s Doctor Strange made many fans familiar with Benedict Cumberbatch’s character of the same name. Strange has been featured in several films since then, including Avengers Infinity War and Endgame, where he played a significant role. He will also have a huge role to play in Spider-Man: No Way Home, which will deal with multiverses.
Tom Holland also recently stated that Spider-Man: No Way Home will be the end of the Homecoming trilogy. He then made it clear that a fourth film featuring the webhead isn’t impossible. Holland further added that Marvel would build something different with a possible fourth film.
It was also previously reported that Spider-Man: No Way Home will mark the beginning of the shared universe with Sony and Marvel. Even Tom Holland was not sure the script for the film was going to work.
In the recently published book The Story of Marvel Studios: The Making of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it was said that early discussions for bringing the webhead to the MCU led to Sony’s executive Amy Pascal reportedly throwing a sandwich at Kevin Feige.
The conflict between the two producers started during a lunch meeting, in which “Pascal wasted no time in expressing her strong desire to have Feige be more directly involved, creatively, in the making of Sony Pictures’ The Amazing Spider-Man 3”.
It was said that Amy Pascal was shocked at how quickly her ideas were shot down and then also by Kevin Feige’s counterproposal. Pascal then revealed how she was very resentful at first as well, even throwing a sandwich at Feige.
“At first, I was super resentful. I think I started crying and threw him out of my office, or threw a sandwich at him – I’m not sure which.”
Ultimately, everyone was on board with the idea of Spiderman making his way into the MCU. This gave birth to 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming as well. With Spider-Man: No Way Home promising to be one of the most ambitious films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it is likely they will be bringing in many characters from the previous Spider-Man films.
We will have to see how the film will become the bridge between the MCU and Sony’s universes. Hopefully all sandwiches remain safe from harm from this point on.
