Spider-Man Returns to the MCU
After Marvel resolved its dispute with Sony, Spider-Man has returned to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for two new movies.
A new deal has been agreed upon the two studios, which means that our friendly neighborhood web-slinger will be back for a third film within the MCU. This includes the Far From Home sequel that is set to be released on July 16, 2021 and a future Marvel Studios film that has been confirmed but has no details yet.
As the case with the first two Spider-Man films, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige will be co-producing with alongside Sony’s Amy Pascal through her 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.
“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. 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.” Pascal added.
“This has been a winning partnership for the studios, the franchise and the fans and I’m overjoyed it will continue.”
