Over the summer we heard news that was just as heartbreaking, if not more so, than the losses we suffered in Endgame. That Sony and Disney could not come to an agreement in their custody battle over our beloved Spider-Man and that he would no longer be part of the MCU. For those of us that are huge Marvel fans and huge fans of Tom Holland as our Peter Parker, this news was almost worse than a death because his story wasn’t finished. Thankfully this morning we have news that our Spider-Man is back in the MCU! At least for now.
Sony and Disney came to a new agreement late last night that will allow Tom Holland’s Spider-Man to remain in the MCU at least long enough for one more Spider-Man movie to finish the trilogy and close out the storyline we were left with at the end of Far From Home. He will also appear in one other MCU film, although we don’t know which film that will be yet. Spider-Man 3 is set to be released July 16, 2021!
“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,” Feige said 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.”
Amy Pascal will also be returning to produce the film, “This is terrific,” she said. “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.”
While this may end up just being Marvel’s opportunity to finish up Peter’s story in the MCU I know I, along with every other huge Marvel and Spider-Man fan, will hold out hope that Sony and Disney can play nice and keep the kids best interest at heart when it comes to the future of our Spider-Man!
