According to a report spreading over the internet after being published in The Ankler, Marvel Studios head honcho and ubermeister Kevin Feige tried to warn Sony Pictures not to rush their mini-Marvel universe, the failed experiment formerly known as SPUMC, the Sony Pictures Universe Of Marvel Characters.

“Excuse me while I go and make you all some more money in peace…”

The report by Jeff Sneider seems to indicate that Feige is still consulted somewhat by Sony, and even goes as far as to offer notes on their output. Think on that for a second. Feige had to sit though Morbius. That must have been like watching somebody wave a gun at your child. The report states:

“One insider credits Feige for guiding Sony’s approach and warning the studio not to get too ahead of itself in terms of building some larger universe in the vein of the Avengers movies.”

Potentially a credit he won’t actually want, judging by the state of the Sony nation. When Sony and Marvel collaborate properly you get the Tom Holland Spider-Man and Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse, and the heavens do open and money and praise doth flow.

When Sony fly more solo… well, it’s Morbin’ time!

Kraven the Hunter and Madame Web are in development, and there are two more Spider-Verse movies planned. In the famous Amy Pascal e-mails leak way back in 2014, Feige was mentioned in relation to his comments on The Amazing Spider-Man 2, particularly the handling of Electro and Andrew Garfield’s performance around the death of a major character.

In the article, Sneider goes on to say:

“Okay, so Sony may not have the biggest bench in terms of franchises, but it wisely made a deal with Marvel Studios to get its marquee character Spider-Man into the MCU, which helped make the studio’s solo Spidey movies must-sees, even more so. While plans are in motion for another Spidey trilogy starring Tom Holland, I don’t believe he has actually signed a deal yet, so those plans remain unofficial for now. That said, I’m sure that more Spidey adventures with Holland are a top priority for Rothman & Co., which is also counting on him as the anchor of its budding Uncharted franchise as well.”

Better sign Holland up boys, or we are looking at Pixels 2.
