After publicly going back and forth with major coverage throughout the media, Disney/Marvel and Sony will team again at least one more time to bring Spider-Man back swinging to the screen.
The new film will be released by Sony on July 16, 2021.
Sony and Marvel last had that public standoff last month over rights to the movie incarnation of the young superhero. Rports said that Disney asked for all future Spider-Man movies to be a 50/50 co-financing agreement between both studios but the latter declined. Rather, Sony offered only to leave the current deal the same, meaning Marvel would continue to receive approximately 5% of first-dollar gross while keeping the rights to merchandising, which Disney rejected.
“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,” Marvel Producer Kevin Feige told The Hollywood Reporter. “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.”
Meanwhile, the second Spidey collaboration from the studios, Spider-Man: Far from Home, is now available on Digital HD and arrives on Blu-ray and 4K UHD Oct. 1. Directed by Jon Watts, that film stars Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Jake Gyllenhaal, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, JB Smoove, Jacob Batalon and Martin Starr and Marisa Tomei.
