Fortunately, Disney and Sony have reached a deal that would allow Spider-Man to do one more MCU film!
According to reports, the two giants have agreed on a profit scheme where both parties would get good take-home pay. In doing so, we’d get to see our favorite web-slinger in another MCU film. Furthermore, the core team of Marvel’s Kevin Feige and Sony’s Amy Pascal have already plotted a date for the third MCU Spidey film – July 2021.
In an Instagram post, Tom Holland, the actor who plays Spider-Man for the MCU, posted a clip from The Wolf of Wall Street that says “The show goes on!”
Likewise, the deal was confirmed by Kevin Feige in a statement. He mentioned that:
“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. 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.”
Earlier this year, news broke that Sony rejected a profit-sharing proposal by Disney. According to reports, Disney wanted to receive an equal split of the profits from all Spider-Man films. Apparently, as both Spider-Man MCU films grossed heavily in theaters, the bulk of the cash simply went to Sony. Notably, Spider-Man Far From Home became Sony’s highest-grossing film for 2019, and Disney wanted in on it as well.
Where’s Spider-Man Headed Off Next?
Despite reaching a new deal for Peter Parker and co., Spidey’s future remains in question. According to reports, the deal that was struck was apparently only good for one additional movie. Apparently, this poses a threat to the overall realization of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Originally, Spider-Man was poised to take the reins from Iron Man as he takes the universe to its next phase. However, this does not seem to be the case now. At best, Feige could just close the superhero in a fitting trilogy by 2021, unless a new deal is made.
