Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and Spider-Man star Tom Holland addressed this week’s Sony-Marvel breakup — which will see the wall-crawler leave the Marvel Cinematic Universe — in a new interview conducted at Disney’s D23 Expo on Saturday.“Basically, we’ve made five great movies,” Holland said in a chat with Entertainment Weekly. “It’s been five amazing years. I’ve had the time of my life. Who knows what the future holds? But all I know is that I’m going to continue playing Spider-Man and having the time of my life. It’s going to be so fun, however we choose to do it.”
Holland added, “The future for Spider-Man will be different, but it will be equally as awesome and amazing, and we’ll find new ways to make it even cooler.”
For his part, Feige said he was “feeling about Spider-Man gratitude and joy.”
He added, “We got to make five films within the MCU with Spider-Man: two standalone films and three with the Avengers. It was a dream that I never thought would happen. It was never meant to last forever. We knew there was a finite amount of time that we’d be able to do this, and we told the story we wanted to tell, and I’ll always be thankful for that.”
