In an unexpected turn of events, Sony and Disney have worked out their issues and Marvel’s Kevin Feige will produce another solo entry in the current Spider-Man series, with a deal for another appearance in a Marvel Cinematic Universe film.
“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.”
Amy Pascal will also produce through Pascal Pictures, as she has on the first two Holland-led films.
“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.”
The third Spider-Man movie is set for release on July 16th 2021, which means that the MCU will have FOUR movies that year with the previously announced Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Thor: Love and Thunder, along with the Disney+ series WandaVision, Loki, What If…? and Hawkeye.
