In a new interview with MTV International, Tom Holland, who plays Peter Parker, has spoken out on the plan which had been in place for the new Spider-Man, free from the MCU.

“The future of Spider-Man was really, really bright with Sony,” he emphasised.

“We had a really, really wonderful idea of how we could sort of transition into a Spider-Man without the MCU."

Holland went on to say Sony bosses were “confident” they would be able to live up to the success of the recent films, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home, both of which were produced by Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige.

Nonetheless, he’s glad to be remaining in the MCU.
