UPDATE: According to Deadline, there are rumblings that Sony and Marvel May share even more in the future than just everyone’s favorite neighborhood Spider-Man. Check out the report below!
We hear that as Sony progresses their own Marvel universe with titles likes Venom 2 and Sinister Six, and Disney/Marvel their own, there could be a “call and answer” between the two franchises as they acknowledge details between the two in what is would loosely be described as a shared detailed universe. Details on that are still early.
So this certainly bodes well for the fanboy nation who are hoping to see Spidey and Tom Hardy’s Venom combine their forces as well as maybe The Sinister Six who were hinted at in Andrew Garfield’s films before those plans were scrapped. Stay tuned for hopefully more exciting announcements in the future!
Another update is that director Jon Watts is indeed in final talks to helm the third film which would be a major win as he has delivered with the first two movies. Stay tuned for more and keep it locked and loaded right here!
(Original Post): Well just like I predicted, this didn’t take long at all as it is being reported that Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios/Disney have reached a collective agreement to bring Tom Holland’s Spider-Man back into the MCU! This is why I didn’t panick when the news broke that both companies were parting ways last month. Fanboys may now breath a collective sigh. Kevin Feige will be back to produce the third film in the series.
Per the report in Deadline:
The divorce Sony Pictures Entertainment and The Walt Disney Studios jointly announced today that Marvel Studios and its President Kevin Feige will produce the third film in the SPIDER-MAN HOMECOMING series, starring Tom Holland. The film is scheduled for release on July 16, 2021. As part of the arrangement, Spider-Man will also appear in a future Marvel Studios film. Amy Pascal will also produce through Pascal Pictures, as she has on the first two Holland-led films.
“I am thrilled that Spidey’s journey in the MCU will continue, and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited that we get to keep working on it,” said Feige. “Spider-Man is a powerful icon and hero whose story crosses all ages and audiences around the globe. He also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes, so as Sony continues to develop their own Spidey-verse you never know what surprises the future might hold.”
“This is terrific. Peter Parker’s story took a dramatic turn in Far From Home and I could not be happier we will all be working together as we see where his journey goes,” said Pascal. “This has been a winning partnership for the studios, the franchise and the fans and I’m overjoyed it will continue.”
I knew that both Sony and Marvel would come to terms especially since the last entry Spider-Man: Far From Home was the highest grossing Spider-Man film ever and was also the highest grossing Sony film ever made. They knew they had gold so why break up the band when the money is being made hand over fist.
The third Spider-Man film will star Tom Holland once again and be set for releae on July 16th, 2021. Spidey will also appear in another unknown Marvel movie in the future so it looks like fans will be able to enjoy the Web-Slinger mingle with other Marvel characters in the future at least for now. Now can we bring in Tom Hardy’s VENOM as well!
What remains to be seen is whether or not director Jon Watts will return as he has not signed on to do the next films. It is being said that he is being courted by Marvel to do another project so we will have to wait and see.
Like I always say…Money Talks and BS walks. Welcome back Spidey!!!
