Spider-Man is back to the MCU!

Sony and Disney agreed on terms for the third Spider-Man movie – Disney will finance 25% of the film for 25% equity stake. This deal also include that Spider-Man will make an appearance in another film besides the next one.

This is a great deal for both sides – Sony will probably add another 1-billion-dollar movie to its collection (Spider-Man: Far From Home is the biggest film Sony has with $1.13 billion passing Skyfall) while Marvel can continue the storyline of Spider-Man in the MCU.

After the 2 first movies grossed more than $2 billion worldwide, the third movie is expected to arrive in theaters on July 16th, 2021.

Amy Pascal will produce the next film, she said –

“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 This has been a winning partnership for the studios, the franchise and the fans, and I’m overjoyed it will continue.”

Sony announced – “We have had a great collaboration over the last four years, and our mutual desire to continue was equal to that of the many fans. We are delighted to be moving forward together”.

Spider-Man Is Leaving Marvel’s Cinematic Universe

It was confirmed that Tom Holland will star in the next Spiderman movies. Holland said it will be “something very special” and “different”. This happens after Sony and Marvel Studios (powered by Disney) couldn’t reach an agreement regarding profit share on the Spiderman movies.

Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, the writes of the last Spiderman movie “Far From Home” (which became Sony’s highest-grossing movie ever) will return for the third movie. However, it’s still unknown if the director, Jon Watts, will be apart of the next Spiderman movie.

Tom said – “We sat down with some of our creatives. We pitched Spider-Man 3, which is going to be something very special, it’s going to be something very different”. He continued -“I’m just so grateful that Marvel changed my life and allowed my dreams to come true and Sony allowing me to continue living my dream. It’s a crazy week and it’s never been done before so we’ll see how it goes and it’ll be as amazing and as fun.”
