Kevin Feige Says SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Sequels Might Use HARRY POTTER Approach
I wasn't in Hall H during Marvel Studios' Comic-Con presentation last Saturday, but it sounds like the footage they showed from Jon Watts' upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming really tore the roof off the place (watch the panel here). We knew Sony and Marvel cast a young actor in Tom Holland because they wanted to give us a look at a teenaged Spider-Man that we hadn't seen on film before, and with fandom being what it is, some are already looking past Homecoming and wondering what the future holds for the web-slinger on the big screen. Collider spoke with Kevin Feige, who revealed that they're going to be modeling this franchise on another super-successful film series:
"Should we be able to make more after that? Sure. This is sophomore year, is the next one junior year? Is the next one senior year? Is there a summer break between each of those? I don’t know what, but it was sort of how do we do a journey for Peter not dissimilar for what the students of Hogwarts would go through each of their years, which was one of the early ideas we had for the movies."
So it sounds like plans aren't 100% set in stone quite yet, but we all know Feige has ideas for movies that literally go all the way into 2025 at this point. If Homecoming comes out in 2017, that means we could conceivably get a new Spider-Man solo movie every year or two for a decade after that, finishing with Peter as a 25-year-old (Tom Holland would be 31 by then). Who knows: anything is possible in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it's cool that Feige seems to be modeling these films after the Harry Potter movies, which never went more than two years without a film from the franchise's start to finish. What do you think?
