Clearly, Marvel fans, as well as fans of the superhero, were not thrilled to hear the reason for the character’s absence from the film. As a result, the news brought backlash from the fans as they took to social media to express their disappointment at Sony.

He said,

“I was a good student in school. I’ll do my homework as an adult. But I am definitely not looking to do homework when I go to the movies. I very much made this film with certainly a healthy respect and gratitude towards the rabid fan base that has peak fluency in the mythology and lore of these characters and this world. But I didn’t want to presume that.”

He added how his upcoming movie only wants to entertain its viewers, and casual moviegoers can join in this fun without doing “prior research.”


“This movie is built for entertainment, with no obligation to come prepared with prior research.”

Shawn Levy’s words would be music to the ears of casual moviegoers, as they would have felt intimidated by the daunting task of catching up on years of Marvel projects.
