Rule For Using Spider-Man in Marvel’s What If Revealed

When making Marvel’s What If..? creator A.C. Bradley said she had to look into how she could use everyone’s favorite web slinger.

In a new interview, Bradley revealed that she’d inquired about any potentially sticky legal and contractual situations when developing the show, and was told by Marvel to simply focus on telling the best story possible while the legal department dealt with the ins and outs.

“I think that works with people above our pay grade. Though, I think I did ask that early on. I was like, ‘Can we just touch Spider-Man?’. And they went, ‘Don’t worry about it. We’re going to figure it out. Just tell the best story you can, and we’ll cross that bridge’. That was kind of the mandate across the board with Marvel. As long as you’re not doing something that we’re doing in the movies, go have fun and we’ll figure it out.”

Overall, it seems that Marvel and Disney hold the rights to the animated web-slinger as long as they keep it to under 44 minutes. Sony therefore has rights to feature length animation.

It will be interesting to see how Marvel and Disney continue to bring in Spider-Man in future MCU productions.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
