As MCU fans eagerly await the home release of Spider-Man: No Way Home and the launch of Marvel's 2022 slate, Marvel Studios has been reflecting on their 2021 success. On the heels of a year without content, Marvel roared back with four theatrical films, four live-action Disney+ series, and the studio's first dive into animation with What If...?
To top off the year, Marvel and Sony also released Spider-Man: No Way Home, which shattered box office records with its ability to bring in Spidey characters from past franchises, building off the Multiversal lore established in Loki on Disney+.
After reflecting on the studio's remarkable year, one Marvel executive took to social media to show how the studio is celebrating its new hit stories and characters at its office.
Marvel Studios Reveals Displays for Spider-Man and Loki
Victoria Alonso, Marvel's President of Production, took to Instagram to share Marvel Studios' two new displays that celebrate both Spider-Man: No Way Home and Disney+'s Loki located in their headquarters at Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California.
Her caption reads as follows:
"Back to work and surprised by old friends!!!! #spiderman #missminutes"
The first display showcases Tom Holland's Spider-Man suit, along with the costumes of both Willem Dafoe's Green Goblin and Alfred Molina's Doc Ock.
Both villains, who were originally from Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man films, were a huge part of the threequel's marketing, with Dafoe's Gobbie serving as Holland's Peter Parker's primary antagonist.
The second display is a statue of Miss Minutes from Loki, the TVA's AI mascot, along with a speech bubble of her signature phrase, "Hey, ya'll!"
Marvel Wins For Best Office Decor
While every fan has their opinion, it's hard to argue with the success Marvel experienced with both Loki and Spider-Man: No Way Home. And, from a story perspective, the two are connected.
Ahead of Spider-Man 3's release, Loki served as a sort of Multiversal primer, educating fans on the concept of multiple universes and timelines and the reality of Variants.
In fact, the casts of the two projects are rumored to cross in Marvel's Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. But even if those rumors prove to be false, fans know Miss Minutes will probably return in Season 2 of Loki, and No Way Home's Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield's Spideys are likely to receive projects of their own in the near future.
One interesting note about Marvel's Spider-Man office display is that No Way Home wasn't a sole Marvel Studios project but rather a joint venture with Sony Pictures. This, of course, is because Sony owns the film rights to the web-head and his gallery of cronies.
It's also worth noting that the fame of Dafoe's Green Goblin and Molina's Doc Ock is due to Sony's original Spider-Man trilogy.
Still, the fact that Marvel Studios is comfortable with displaying costumes from the Spider-Man threequel is a good sign. Hopefully, it points to a strong relationship with Sony and the desire to remain connected for future web-slinger films.
While only time will tell, if fans have their way, Marvel will have costumes from Spider-Man 4 and items from Loki Season 2 on display at the studio office in the future.
Spider-Man: No Way Home will be released digitally on March 22; all episodes of Loki are available to stream on Disney+.
