Now Playing: Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailer #2 Breakdown

"That's as far as it goes for now," Feige said, leaving open the possibility of the deal going further.

Tom Holland made his debut as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War, though only in a small role. We'll see a lot more of him in this summer's Homecoming--watch a breakdown of the new trailer above.

Sony itself is making Spider-Man spinoffs themed around Venom and Silver Sable/Black Cat, but Marvel is not a partner for those films. Feige said Marvel has a "very particular plan about Spidey himself when asked why Marvel isn't working with Sony on the spinoffs. He didn't talk about what those plans might be.

Spider-Man: Homecoming premieres on July 7 and also stars Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei, and Donald Glover. For lots more on the new trailer, check out GameSpot's in-depth video breakdown here.

Also during the interview, Feige said you should not expect to see Marvel make an R-rated movie anytime soon. It might have worked for Deadpool and Logan, but they were unique in that Deadpool breaks the fourth wall and Logan has a sense of closure for Wolverine.

"My takeaway from both of those films is not the R rating; it's the risk they took, the chances they took, the creative boundaries that they pushed," Feige said of their success. "That should be the takeaway for everyone."
