While the fans are extremely happy to see Tom Holland in the role of Spider-Man also known as Peter Parker for Marvel Cinematic Universe, a recent story coming from of a book Marvel Studios: The Making of the Marvel Cinematic Universe by Tara Bennett and Paul Terry suggests that the Spider-Man producer Amy Pascal actually cried when Kevin Feige first wanted a collaboration between both the studios.

Amy Pascal revealed in the book that when Kevin Feige first wanted to collaborate for the Spiderman movie with her, she "was super resentful."

"At first, I was super resentful, I think I started crying and threw him out of my office, or threw a sandwich at him - I'm not sure which… By the fifth [Spider-Man] movie, we weren't giving them anything new. And I have to be honest about it, we were trying so hard to be different, we even went into places to be different that we shouldn't have. We weren't fresh anymore.'"

She added that Feige for all these years since he has been working on Sam Raimi's Spider-Man movies "never said a word" and he had been "thinking all the big thoughts" about the future of the superhero.

"'The lucky thing is, Kevin and I come from the same place in terms of how we love Peter. I've been working with Kevin on Spider-Man movies since Sam Raimi's. He would come to the meetings, get everybody some coffee, and he never said a word for years,'" she added. "'Which makes you love somebody because then when they do open their mouth, you realize that they've been thinking all the big thoughts and are really smart, but never had to hear themselves talk.'"

"I am thrilled that Spidey's journey in the MCU will continue, and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited that we get to keep working on it," Feige announced. "Spider-Man is a powerful icon and hero whose story crosses all ages and audiences around the globe. He also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes, so as Sony continues to develop their own Spidey-verse you never know what surprises the future might hold."

Despite the late appearance of fan-favorite superhero Spiderman in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it didn't take away anything from the comic book character as he has become more popular than he has ever been and now the studio is all set to release the third film in Tom Holland's film series Spiderman: No Way Home.

The film is directed by Jon Watts with its story written by Chris Mckenna and Erik Sommers and it is a follow-up to 2019's Spiderman: Far From Home.

In addition to Tom Holland in the role of Peter Parker aka Spiderman, Zendaya in the role of MJ, Benedict Cumberbatch in the role of Doctor Strange, Jon Favreau in the role of Harold "Happy" Hogan, Jacob Batalon in the role of Ned Leeds, Marisa Tomei in the role of May Parker, J. B. Smoove in the role of Julius Dell, Alfred Molina in the role of Otto Octavius / Doctor Octopus, and Jamie Foxx in the role of Max Dillon / Electro. The film is the 27th entry in the superhero-based franchise MCU.

With a lot of delay Spiderman: No Way Home is currently set to arrive in theatres on December 17, 2021.
