One thing Spidey fans wants to know is what now after No Way Home? Well, Sony Chairman Tom Rothman opens up about some small Spider-Man 4 details that he wants to see in a interview with Deadline.
DEADLINE: Those who doubted Sony’s strategy underestimated your franchise strength.
ROTHMAN: Uncharted, Jumanji, Spider-Man. We have our Marvel business, which breaks into three tranches. There are the Spider-Man movies, and we’re currently at work on two Spider-Verse sequels to our Oscar winning animated movie, with Lord and Miller. We hope to get working on the next Spider-Man movie.
DEADLINE: With Jon Watts, Tom Holland and Zendaya returning?
ROTHMAN: That whole group, we hope. Then there are movies I would call adjunct to the Spider-Man universe. That’s Kraven, which we’re shooting now, and Madam Web, which we’ll start in the spring with S.J. Clarkson directing. And then there are many Marvel characters that are standalone. When I took over Sony, it was said, oh, Sony has no IP. Not true. We actually had fantastic IP. We just needed to focus on it. We had Jumanji, Bad Boys, Uncharted. Ghostbusters, another example. Just before I got here, they took a turn down a road that didn’t work out that well. But because of Jason Reitman and his relationship with Ivan, may he rest in peace, we were able to resuscitate that into a tremendous success, both theatrically and in home entertainment.
It’s good to know that Rothman still wats the gang together for Spider-Man 4. I feel like it’ll be a long wait to see them return, especially since the Homecoming team are at a different space in their life right now. Only time will tell.
