While Marvel and Sony‘s team-up on “Spider-Man: Homecoming” is being viewed as an Earth-shaking deal in an industry where every studio ferociously protects their brands, according to Kevin Feige, it was pretty simple to hash out when he sat down with producer Amy Pascal. “It really came down to me telling Amy in her office that I think the best thing for this character is: Sony has the rights, that’s not changing,” Feige told THR.

Earlier this year, producer Amy Pascal put a dark cloud over “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” suggesting that following the planned sequel, the character would be bouncing out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The team up between Marvel and Sony has always been seen as near miraculous and temporary, but now it seems like it could lasting a little bit longer. Tom Holland recently revealed there’s a ‘Spider-Man’ trilogy in the works, and now Pascal says that relationship between Sony and Marvel is going to be growing.

Oscar-winning composer Michael Giacchino may be the go-to blockbuster composer of the moment. His franchise bonafides include tuning up the trilogy of “Star Trek” pictures, “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol,” “Jurassic World,” “Doctor Strange,” and stepping in as a last minute replacement for Alexandre Desplat on “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.” Now, he’s bringing his talents to yet another tentpole picture.

This summer’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” marks a rare, big studio alliance between Sony and Marvel, as they team up to revive the character. However, Peter Parker’s association with the Marvel Cinematic Universe may be shortlived. While the web slinger will jump into action in “Avengers: Infinity War,” this spring producer Amy Pascal suggested that Spider-Man would have a limited time rolling those other big screen superheroes, but that hardly means Sony is done with the character.

**Spoilers ahead** We’re just under a month away from the release of “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” and you might feel that with the tidal wave of marketing, you know everything about the movie already. However, there are still some secrets to be revealed, and one actress who has intriguingly been largely absent the advertising so far is Disney channel star Zendaya. Her role in the film has been kept under wraps — she is not the new Mary Jane Watson as initially reported — with only the first name of her character being given: Michelle. Continue reading Spoiler!

In an era of selfies and constant logging of our every activity on social media, it only makes sense that latest incarnation of Peter Parker in “Spider-Man: Homecoming” would document his adventures. And the new trailer for the film finds the webslinger cleverly filming his appearance in the epic battle of “Captain America: Civil War.” As for the rest of the promo, it’s a brief sizzle reel of what’s coming in the upcoming superhero flick, which if all goes well, will kick off a new universe of movies for Sony, who are collaborating with Marvel on this effort.

Not to keep banging on the same drum you’ve heard before, but Hollywood these days is not a place where risks get taken. Major studios would rather roll the dice on a known brand, even if it fails (see “Baywatch“), than spend the same money hoping something original will pay off. And more than ever, ancillary streams of revenue are valuable, arguably moreso, than box office receipts. That said, audiences have shown a weariness for being spoonfed the same material over and over (see the domestic reception to “Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales“), and the balance of bringing fresh product to market, that’s also built around an existing IP, is tricky to figure out.

Summer is in full swing, and that means that “Spider-Man: Homecoming” is almost in theaters. So, it’s no surprise that Sony is pulling out all the marketing stops to promote what is surely going to be one of the biggest films of the year. Part of the marketing homestretch are the two new trailers, one domestic, one international (and quite different from each other) that were just released. Much like the other trailers before it, these new ones show exactly why fans are getting excited about this upcoming reboot.
