Ever since a heartbroken audience watched our beloved Spiderman in Infinity War feel not so good and wither away into dust, everyone has been haunted by only one thought! Does the friendly neighbourhood superhero survive the wrath of Thanos? And when the details of Spiderman homecoming sequel were announced, fans were overjoyed. But it seems their joy might be short lived as in a recent interview to io9 Marvel boss Kevin Feige teased that Spiderman Homecoming sequel titled Far From Home will be set before Infinity War.
Feige told io9: “Well, when does that movie take place? We know it’s the summer. I think it’s summer vacation. I think he’s going to Europe with his friends”.
“I don’t know what summer… I mean, I do know (but you don’t).”
It was already reported that the 23rd Marvel Cinematic Universe release will be filmed in multiple locations across Europe, including London(where it is currently filming). Feige’s statement has cast a doubt over the fate of the web-slinger. Which summer is he referring to? The one before Thanos snapped out half the universe or the one after?
Tom Holland who plays Spiderman is also reported to have said that he wasn’t sure how or if his character was actually brought back to life, saying: “I don’t know much about it. I’m a little confused because, um, I died, so I don’t really know how it all comes into play.” This statement has come as a rude shock for Marvel fans who were expecting Spiderman to take a central role in the MCU.
Months ago Sony producer Amy Pascal had let it slip that Far From Home was set after the Infinity War saga. However that might not be the case anymore. As Pascal represents Sony and Marvel are calling the shots in this Spiderman story arc.
Although it is highly unlikely that Marvel studios will retire Spider-Man as he has always been a gold mine for production studios.
AVENGERS 4 is slated to release on APRIL 27, 2019. SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME is releasing on JULY 5,2019.
