Peter Parker is more “away from home” than ever, and all because of a supervillain named coronavirus. Recent news indicates that the premiere of Spider-Man 3 (a future installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe) was postponed by Sony Pictures.
According to THR, the third installment on the wall-climber (played by Tom Holland) will not be released in the summer of next year, but four months later than planned: on November 21, 2021.
In the case of a film belonging to a franchise like the MCU (with multiple projects within its calendar), the release update has inevitably altered the premiere of other productions.
According to reports, the House of Ideas has already toured theaters in the sequels, Doctor Strange, in the Multiverse of Madness and Thor: Love & Thunder.
The second part about the Supreme Sorcerer will no longer debut on November 5, 2021, but on March 25, 2022. For its part, the fourth solo incursion of the God of Thunder will premiere a week earlier than planned, that is, on February 11, 2022.
Interestingly, based on the previous schedule, Thor 4 was due to be released AFTER Doctor Strange 2, and now the roles have been reversed.
This Friday, along with the premiere of Spider-Man 3, Sony Pictures also rethought the releases of other upcoming productions such as Hotel Transylvania 4, Fatherhood, The Nightingale, and Man From Toronto.
What’s more, Spider-Man received a double slash with the postponement of the premiere of the sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, a project that has already generated a lot of expectation after the ovations received by that first installment (winner of the Oscar for Best Animated Film in 2019).
The new date for this ambitious animated production corresponds to October 7, 2022.
As for Spider-Man, the Netherlands web-slinger only has two more confirmed MCU movies as part of the deal Sony and Disney reached last summer: Spider-Man 3 and an upcoming team movie.
It’s unclear what that team movie will be, whether it’s an Avengers installment or another type of event movie. But since everything in the MCU, and all of Hollywood, has been delayed, it’s likely to come later too
