Spider-Man Returns… to the Marvel Cinematic Universe
Dry your tears, True Believers!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, everyone’s favorite friendly neighborhood, Spider-Man is once again wearing Mickey ears.
THR’s Aaron Couch and Borys Kit reported:
Spider-Man is back in action. After publicly parting ways over a deal gone south, Disney/Marvel and Sony are back at the table and have struck a deal that would see Marvel produce another Spider-Man film for Sony. The new film even has a release date: July 16, 2021.
“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 Marvel topper Kevin 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.”
Terms of the new deal were not revealed, but it will allow Marvel and its chief Feige to produce and run creative point on one more movie that would star Tom Holland, the actor who is the current incarnation of the web-slinging superhero. Depending on how things go, more movies could be in the offing.
Just an hour ago, Tom Holland posted on Instagram (PG-13) using a clip from The Wolf of Wall Street where Leonardo DiCaprio says, “I’m not leaving…”
While Sony posted:
“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.”
