A Spider-Man crossover with the Marvel Cinematic Universe at large could have been a reality for Sony’s latest Spider-Man iteration, but the producers couldn’t seem to agree and there were a lot of arguments until Sony gave in.

The studio that helped bring Marvel superheroes The Avengers: Infinity War and Ant-Man and the Wasp on center stage originally wanted nothing to do with the MCU – making Tom Holland’s Peter Parker somewhat of an outsider in the list of friendly neighborhood superheroes. But Sony surprised fans by having the foresight to go with MCU’s recent box office success and eventually made a deal – thus bringing together all of our cherished Marvel favorites from Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) to Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan in one shared universe.

However, before they even considered this tactic they did make plans for a different approach to the story of their third movie (Spider-Man No Way Home) with Peter Parker. In fact, in a new interview at Variety, McKenna and Sommers have revealed that there were many versions that didn’t include the multiverse or other dimensions as heavily as one does get the chance to see in this newest MCU film. Instead, they discussed having it more as a small teaser at the end of their blockbuster but realized how much better it would be instead if it became part of their major plotline!

McKenna said:

“We had gone down a couple different roads with different story ideas that were not [the multiverse] that would then tease something like this at the end of it. Why tease the multiverse when you can just do it?”

We were lucky that Sony has the collaboration with Marvel if not we would not have Tobey Mcguire and Andrew Garfield in Spider-Man No Way Home . If the collaboration did not happen the movie would most probably not get such a massive box office.

To date, the movie’s box office is over $1.1 billion. The producers are laughing at the bank.
