We were all devisted to learn a few weeks ago, that Disney & Sony had been unable to reach a deal where Spider-Man could continue to swing in the Marvel universe.
It was a dark day.
Spider-Man has quickly become my Marvel movie fav & this news was beyond depressing.
However, there is now a light at the end of the tunnel!
According to a joint statement made by the two companies Friday -
After weeks of a standoff, Disney and Sony have reached a deal to jointly produce a thirdSpider-Man movie starring Tom Holland.
The sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming and Far From Home will hit theaters July 16, 2021, with Holland once again suiting up as the webslinger.
AND THAT'S NOT ALL! As part of Disney and Sony’s agreement, Spider-Man is also confirmed to appear in a future film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
“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,” Feige said in a statement. “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,” Pascal said. “This has been a winning partnership for the studios, the franchise and the fans and I’m overjoyed it will continue.”
