Despite the important and business success of Spider-Man: Far From Home, for some time Spidey’s future within the Marvel Cinematic Universe was unsure. Although discussions appeared amicable between Marvel Studios and Sony, the plan was initially for Spider-Man to revert back to being completely beneath Sony’s management, which might have eliminated Tom Holland’s model of the character from the established MCU. Thankfully, a deal was eventually struck, and Spider-Man will return for a 3rd standalone film (and Tom Holland’s sixth general within the universe) on July 16, 2021.
During all of this, the celebs of the movies spoke out about what was occurring: Tom Holland mentioned that the films going ahead could be very different, whereas Jeremy Renner (who performs Hawkeye) asked for Spider-Man to return. Now one other star from the MCU has spoken out in regards to the debacle in amusing vogue.
Ben Mendelsohn, the Australian actor who performs Talos in Captain Marvel (and has a cameo in Spider-Man: Far From Home), spoke with candor about the entire cope with UK web site Metro. “I think what happens in these things is, most of the time, cooler heads prevail,” Mendelsohn mentioned. “Sometimes we end up in a situation which feels like it’s going to be the lead up to World War I.” The actor did not mince phrases when speaking about how necessary Spidey is to Marvel. “But s*** man. You can’t lose Spider-Man from the Marvel universe. He’s one of their absolute motherf***ing pornstars. Boy, I could name 30 that you could quite comfortably lose before you start thinking about losing Spider-Man.”
The actor went on to say that he “cannot think of a single character who’s more important to Marvel than Spider-Man,” saying that shedding him “would have been a disaster.” He’s clearly a fan.
Ben Mendelsohn can presently be seen in The King on Netflix alongside Timothée Chalamet, Joel Edgerton, and Robert Pattinson.
