Spider-Man is staying in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a little while longer

It had looked like Disney / Marvel and Sony had parted ways over Spider-Man, but it looks like talks have been continuing and Spidey is still in the MCU.

There had been all kinds of rumours about various other companies being involved, but it seems it will still be a Disney / Sony split.

According to Deadline Sony has agreed to the terms that Disney originally proposed for its participation in a future Spider-Man sequel whereby Disney/Marvel would co-finance 25% of a third Homecoming movie for a 25% equity stake. The deal also calls for Spider-Man appearing in more Marvel films.

The third film is scheduled for release on July 16, 2021. Amy Pascal will also produce through 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 Kevin Feige 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.”

“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,” said Pascal. “This has been a winning partnership for the studios, the franchise and the fans and I’m overjoyed it will continue.”

I am very happy with the news as Tom Holland made an excellent Spidey and he was very intertwined with the MCU. Now I wonder whether we will see Tom Hardy’s Venom popping up in some way? It also means there is a chance that J.K. Simmons could pop up in other Marvel movies as J. Jonah Jameson.

How do you feel about the news?
