Kevin Feige says Marvel Studios making creative decisions with ‘Spider-Man Homecoming’

Sony and Marvel announced they’d worked out a deal to bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Spidey would appear in Captain America: Civil War with Tom Holland cast as the new webhead. Now Marvel Studios exec Kevin Feige confirmed Marvel’s role in Holland’s first solo outing, Spider-Man: Homecoming, which will still be distributed by

Venom versus Spider-Man marvel comics coverFeige suggests it’s Marvel, not Sony, which will have creative control over the character while speaking with Hey U Guys at the U.K. premiere of Captain America: Civil War.

“Well, I’ve known all those people for a very long time. Amy Pascal, Tom Rothman, who runs Sony now, I’ve known for years. So, it’s been great. They really are supportive in allowing us to make the creative decisions to make [Spider-Man: Homecoming], but they’ve been great partners. So far so good on that movie.”

The character got off to a great start at Sony with Sam Raimi’s first two Spider-Man films, but the third one was a mess with the studio forcing Venom into the mix with other villains. Then the studio rebooted the character, which only made things worse.

Marc Webb and Andrew Garfield’s films weren’t without their charms, but the timing made them feel redundant and the narrative kept getting tangled in its own mythology.

Marvel might even be too controlling and conservative with their properties — but after the sloppiness of the past three Spider-Man movies, some restraint might be just what your friendly neighborhood webslinger needs.

Meanwhile, Sony still holds the reins on a couple of other Spidey and Spidey-adjacent projects. There’s the animated Spider-Man movie being produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (who will not direct, as they’ll be busy making that Han Solo movie), and the Venom movie that won’t have anything to do with Spider-Man: Homecoming or the MCU.

Captain America: Civil War hits theaters on May 6, 2016, and Spider-Man: Homecoming on July 7, 2017.
