Spider-Verse Producer Defends Sony's Avi Arad After Spider-Man Backlash


After the backlash from fans over Sony’s Avi Arad’s involvement in the MCU’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far From Home, and Spider-Man: No Way Home films, one of the producers of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse spoke out to defend his colleague. Arad is still producing Marvel Spider-Man content at Sony with productions like Venom 2 and Morbius. He is not as involved with the MCU films since the most recent negotiations in 2019.
