"Well, I've known all those people [at Sony] for a very long time. Amy Pascal, Tom Rothman, who runs Sony now, I've known for years. So, it’s been great," he explained. "They really are supportive in allowing us to make the creative decisions to make that movie, but they've been great partners. So far so good on that movie."

Feige also talked about how Robert Downey Jr. read with Spider-Man actor Tom Holland during his audition, saying that "it was seeing Tom and Robert together which made [them] realize Tom was by far the best choice."

You'll be able to see Holland as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War, which hits theaters on May 6. Robert Downey Jr. will appear as Iron Man in that movie, but he's also set to join the cast of the upcoming Spider-Man movie.
