ERIK SOMMERS: Typically, when we start on a Marvel movie—and we’ve done three now—they’ll have a document that they have put together with ideas for the movie based on source material, their own internal conversations, things from the overall MCU that might be pulled in, things that need to be addressed based on other movies. That’s always a really useful starting point, and we’ll all look at that document and that’ll be sort of a source for conversations. And then we’ll take it from there, but things can change a lot. It’s just a set of ideas to sort of get the whole conversation started.

When you guys were hired, did you know that you were coming out right after Endgame? Was this kind of always set up to be the next Marvel story being told after that big Avengers movie?

SOMMERS: Yes it was. It seemed to make perfect sense too because, obviously, over several movies, the relationship between Peter and Tony has been built. And now with what’s happened in Endgame, it seems very natural that the next Spider-Man movie would be dealing with that.
