When asked to what extent Ayaz was in touch with the Sony team behind the film, he mentioned that the Sony people were doing most of the marketing for the film, but Marvel’s Kevin Feige and his team were also involved.
“Sony absolutely takes care of the marketing for Spider Man. Kevin Feige and his team are working closely with the Sony team on these, ”Ayaz said. “So there is coordination in this direction. We also make sure we know who releases what and when. But we don’t work together on the campaigns because it’s their movie. They take care of it, but there is a level of coordination to make sure it’s a win-win for everyone.
Details of the route on Spider-Man: No Path Home are still under wraps, but the titular wall-crawler is expected to team up with Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange to take on Jamie Foxx’s Electro, albeit with the end of Far from home Bringing Peter’s secret identity to the world, and the film’s reported ties to the multiverse shenanigans of the Cumberbatch MCU sequel, any number of his thugs could show up for a fight.
Alongside Holland and Cumberbatch, the film confirms seeing Zendaya’s returns (Euphoria) as Peter MJ’s girlfriend and classmate, Jacob Batalon (50 states of dread) as Peter’s best friend, Ned, Marisa Tomei (The King of Staten Island) as Peter May’s aunt, Tony Revolori (The French dispatch) as a classmate of Peter, Eugene “Flash” Thompson and Hannibal Buress (Label) as Peter’s gym teacher, Coach Wilson.
