Spider-Man Is Back In the MCU, Marvel and Sony Strike A Deal

Huge news!

After a public break-up over the summer, Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures will come back together to produce another MCU Spider-Man movie.

Variety reported that the deal broke late last night and includes Sony Pictures chief Tom Rothman, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige, and Walt Disney Studios head Alan Horn. The terms of the deal haven’t been disclosed yet.

The untitled third movie in the MCU Spidey trilogy is scheduled to release on July 16, 2021. Along with Feige, Amy Pascal will also produce the film through her production company, Pascal Pictures.

“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 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,” said Pascal. “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.”

After a bombshell of a cliffhanger from Spider-Man: Far from Home, fans will no doubt be happy that their favorite web-crawling hero isn’t leaving the MCU.
