Kevin Feige Reportedly Warned Sony About Spider-Man Spinoffs
There is no kind way to state the abject failure that has been the development of Sony’s very own cinematic universe, which is more surprising after news has recently surfaced that Kevin Feige reportedly warned Sony about their Spider-Man spinoffs.
It is not hyperbole to say that 2021’s Spider-Man: No Way Home is easily one of the biggest, and most successful, comic book films that have ever been created.
The movie delivered a critically adored film that has firmly etched its mark in the history of the genre while presenting one of Marvel’s most successful theatrical releases at the box office while giving Sony what is by far their most successful.
It is incredible to think that just a few months later, Sony would move forward on the release of Morbius, and almost destroy all of the positive momenta that were firmly theirs.
The entire pursuit for Sony to follow the Marvel blueprint and deliver a cinematic universe constructed of Spider-Man characters was a concept that many were hesitant to believe in, and what made it even more worrisome was the inconsistent Spider-Man projects Sony has headed.
Still, Morbius released and has become more of a meme than a film at this point, and with early rumors swirling about the upcoming Kraven the Hunter film, many fans aren’t optimistic about what’s in store for Sony’s newest franchise.
It has now been rumored that the Marvel architect himself, Kevin Feige, had reportedly warned Sony about their Spider-Man spinoffs.
In a new report from The Ankler, it has been reported that Feige is involved- as an outside expert- in the creation of these various films, and offers some critique; which, as you can imagine, was not the most positive following Morbius.
The report states, “And yes, Marvel’s Kevin Feige does weigh in and offer notes on Sony’s Marvel movies that don’t feature Spider-Man.”
It continued, “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.”
Perhaps the most interesting part of this is that Sony didn’t seem to listen to Feige’s notes, which is an absolute shock considering how much success he, and the MCU, have had for over a decade.
