Kevin Feige promises Spider-Man 4 is already in the works

Spider-Man’s cinematic state was in surprising disorder back in 2019 after the success of Far From Home. At the time, Sony and Marvel had a public split over Disney wanting more revenue from the MCU wallcrawler movies, but that deal ended up being solved itself and gave us the just released box office juggernaut that is Spider-Man: No Way Home. Now that this movie is over and a new chapter of Peter Parker’s life is about to begin, fans were wary of Spidey being no longer in the MCU. But Kevin Feige has already nipped that in the bud: yes, Spider-Man 4 is on and no corporate politics will get in the way this time around.

“[Sony producer] Amy Pascal and I, and Disney and Sony are starting to actively develop where the story goes next,” Feige said in an interview with the New York Times. He’s comfortable saying it now because he doesn’t want fans to go through a “divorce trauma” like they did in 2019, when they created a hashtag to save Spider-Man. Pascal echoed Feige’s statement, saying that she “is thrilled to be working with Kevin. We have a great partnership…hope it lasts forever.” Shortly before the release of No Way Home, Pascal said Sony and Marvel would collaborate on three more movies, but for now it’s wishful thinking and the focus is now only on the immediate sequel to No Way Home.

Until now, all of Tom Holland’s films have been pretty big in scope, with big CG setpieces featuring drones and dudes from other universes. When asked about surpassing Peter Parker’s recent multiverse frenzy, Pascal figured that’s not the best way to think about making these movies. “You can’t think of surpassing yourself in terms of spectacle,” she warned. “But we always want to try to outdo ourselves in terms of quality and emotion.” The most important thing about these films, she said, is that they should not lose sight of the fact that Peter is a normal kid who gets into these bigger situations that will test his resolve.

Will not spoil the end of the film here, but the ending of No Way Home gives the next movie (or series of movies) some interesting character opportunities that this Peter didn’t quite offer when he first appeared in Captain America: Civil War. And it’s a decision that both Feige and Pascal are aware of, with Pascal saying it “gives us a lot to work with for the next movie.” Such a film is of course a long way off, and it is always possible that it will show up earlier. “The when and where is of course the fun part,” Feige teased, “and the part we don’t talk about.”

Spider-Man: No Way Home is now in theaters.
