I'm not sure if you guys are mad at Pascal because she tried to walk back her statement or the fact that the statement had no basis in reality...
...because the statement had ABSOLUTELY NO basis in reality!
I think this is all a marketing and licensing issue. I'm sure Feige would LOVE to have all the Spiderman characters in the MCU...but Sony wants to have it both ways, trying to make their own cinematic universe happen while tricking people into thinking it's still part of the MCU for the branding benefits. I can only imagine the conversation Feige had with her after that interview...LOL!
Why is she still working at Sony after the Ghostbusters fiasco?
