Marvel and Gwyneth Paltrow
With Marvel entering its fourth phase, the studio has decided to venture into new characters and develop characters who previously only had supporting roles. Characters such as Hawkeye, Black Widow, and Falcon have gone on to have extensive development for their characters recently.
After Robert Downey Jr. departed from the MCU, there were big iron shoes to fill, and by the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home, it seems like Marvel intends to make Tom Holland’s Spiderman take up the mantle.

I think I’m so lucky that I got to do it, and I’m sure I still will at some point… The team is always trying to get me to do a movie, but I really love what I do and I love how immediate it is and how … we’re able to create product out of thin air that we believe in so much.”
