The Marvel Cinematic Universe is going ahead with its fourth project phase, as May’s Black Widow will bring back to the world the Avengers of last year: Endgame made some very substantial changes to it. Possibly one of the most awaited films in this new MCU era, the third entry of Spider-Man: Homecoming franchise, is expected to go into production within this year.
Spider-Man was reported to have at least one more jaunt in the Marvel Cinematic Universe universe after Sony and Marvel openly butted heads following the theatrical release of Spider-Man: Far From Home. That means there will be one more Spider-Man movie, now known as Spider-Man 3 pending confirmation of a new title.
Rumor has it that the movie will be released in UK cinemas on July 16, 2022, two years after the release of 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Writer Jon Watts is also officially on board for the threequel, but it is not clear whether a new script has been penned at the time of writing.
The novel coronavirus pandemic, however, has cast doubt about whether the film will reach its release date next year. Filming was supposed to start this July, but the relentless spread of the pandemic has led Sony to postpone filming for an undetermined period. It’s not clear when shooting begins.
Tom Holland is one star that we can confidently presume we’ll see in the next Spider-Man movie again. In his contract, the actor has accomplished all but one film. There is, of course, a possible route where Holland sticks on for a few more, which might include more movies from Avengers if that’s what Spidey is intended for.
For now, Tom Holland has only one Marvel movie left, and it’s likely his “last” will be Spider-Man 3.
You might hope to see more of the supporting cast like Zendaya, Jacob Batalon (Ned), and maybe even Martin Starr as their hapless teacher/debate coach in high school.
The film would likely have to fix Far from Home’s cliffhanger ending, which saw Peter Parker unmasked as Spider-Man and framed by the late Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) as a killer, with Jonah Jameson (JK Simmons) leading the hate campaign on his infamous online blog.
Since the new offer from Sony and Marvel only applies to one more solo movie, it may also be that the movie would have to have some pay-off about why Peter won’t be in the MCU after that. We are calling nonsense again in the multiverse.
