Sony and Marvel reach deal to keep Spider-Man in the MCU

A third Spider-Man film and future MCU appearances are on the way

Rest easy, web heads. Spider-Man will not be leaving the Marvel Cinematic Universe after all.

Sony Pictures, Disney and Marvel Studios have reached a deal to produce a third movie in the Kevin Feige-led Spider-Man: Homecoming series. The film is currently slated for a summer 2021 release.

“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 an official release. “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.”

The studios came together on a co-financing deal to include Spider-Man in the MCU with 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, and subsequent releases Spider-Man: Homecoming, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame, and most recently Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Spider-Man: Far From Home became Sony’s highest-grossing film of all-time.
