Reports Marvel Is Getting Ready To Write Spider-Man Out Of The MCU Following New Sony Deal


Since his first MCU appearance in Captain America: Civil War, fans have loved Tom Holland’s Spider-Man and were very excited to learn Marvel and Sony have come to a new agreement over the character’s next two films.

Under the new deal, Marvel and Sony will work together on another solo Spidey film and Holland will also appear in another MCU film. When the announcement was made, Kevin Feige – who worked on the first two Spider-Man films with Sony – indicated that Spider-Man would be able to cross over into other cinematic universes, including the one Sony is creating on their own.

Now, rumour has it that Feige is preparing to write Spider-Man out of the MCU in case the agreement between Marvel and Sony doesn’t get extended further.

THR reports that while it is possible the deal could be extended, many believe it’s actually part of Spider-Man’s MCU exit.

“Though both sides are hinting the pact could be extended again, Feige seems to be plotting an endgame that will wrap up Peter Parker’s story in the MCU and could see the character cross over into Sony’s own budding universe of characters that includes Venom and Morbius, with films centering on others in the works, including the dimension-spanning Madame Web.”

If this did happen, Sony would have full control over the character.

While it’s not confirmed by any means, it would make sense that Feige would close the door to Spidey in case the deal between Sony and Marvel once again fell through.

One of the things fans complained about the most when the deal broke down earlier this year was that Spider-Man: Far From Home wasn’t a natural ending for Peter Parker’s MCU journey.

ScreenRant suggests that Marvel might cut Spider-Man from the roster by having him accidentally transported to a new reality, so Sony could take over without Marvel.

At this stage, however, the deal is only a day old, and Spider-Man’s exit could be three or more years away and things between Sony and Marvel could change dramatically between now and then.

What we do know right now is that the next Spider-Man film is set for release on July 16, 2021.

Chris Evans Is Ready To Star In A New Huge Cinematic Universe And We Hope This Is True

This would be amazing!

Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige has done some amazing work with the MCU, bringing a whole heap of beloved comic book characters to life in live-action movies, but he’ll soon be turning his attention to the Star Wars universe – and Chris Evans wants to be part of it.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Feige has a “major actor” in mind to star in his Star Wars films, with rumours that person is Captain Marvel star Brie Larson, but Captain America‘s Evans has volunteered himself for the job.

After hanging up his shield and passing the mantle of Captain America on to Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson, Avengers: Endgame marked Evans’ last appearance as Steve Rogers.

That means he’s got a lot more free time on his hands, and as a huge Star Wars fan, he’s making it known that he’s interested in a role in Feige’s next project.

And I don’t know about you, but any movie (or series of movies) that allows me to look at Chris Evans is a movie I want to watch.

Fans had similar thoughts:

Meanwhile, Brie Larson has taken to Instagram to stir the pot on the rumour she’s the person Feige has in mind for the project.


This First Look At Natalie Portman's Mighty Thor Isn't What We Expected

It's a little different to what we pictured!

One of the biggest reveals at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 was that Natalie Portman would be returning to the MCU to star in Thor: Love and Thunder, but not just as Thor’s love interest, this time she’ll be Mighty Thor.

While appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the host shared a tongue-in-cheek first look at Portman as Mighty Thor, and it looks a lot like Chris Hemsworth’s Thor.

DeGeneres asked the actress if she’ll have to work out for the role, joking that she’s “a very slight Lady Thor”.

“I’m assuming I will have to work out, but I’m just gonna wait until they make – I’ll be eating my burritos till they’re like, calling me to the gym,” Portman responded.

It was then that the host unveiled the “exclusive photo” of what Natalie will look like in the role. And it’s… a lot!

“The goatee is so good, thank you,” Portman laughed at the snap of her face added to Hemsworth’s body.

Ellen added, “They said you had to have facial hair for this.”

Watch the moment here:

Portman recently revealed why she was a no-show in Thor: Ragnarok, which many people thought was down to a feud with Marvel after they fired Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins from Thor: The Dark World.

But it turns out it was a much simpler reason.

Speaking with ET, she said, “They came to me. Obviously I wasn’t written into the third Thor because of where it took place.

“It wasn’t really on Earth and my character was on Earth. And then they came to me with the fourth idea and said, you know, ‘We have this idea, that was a storyline in some of the comics, where Jane becomes Lady Thor.’ And I was like, this is very exciting.

“And also of course with Taika [Waititi], and I love Tessa [Thompson] and Chris so much. So it’s exciting to get to work with them again. And yeah, I’m very excited to wield the hammer.”

It makes a lot of sense, Thor didn’t really have much reason to see Jane in the last movie, but we’re super keen to see how Jane becomes Mighty Thor in the next film.

Thor: Love and Thunder is set for release on November 5, 2021
