If you’ve spent even a moment on the internet this past week you’ll know an awesome debut trailer was released for Spider-Man: Homecoming. The long-awaited alliance between Marvel Studios and Sony for joint-custody over Spider-Man is proving to be fruitful for both parties, especially after the reaction to both Spider-Man’s appearance in Captain America: Civil War and the trailer for his first MCU solo-appearance. We’re still 8-9 months away from Spider-Man: Homecoming, so the jury is out on whether or not it can redeem the on-screen career of the character after Sony’s last attempt, but all signs point to the film being a huge hit.
And, as we all know, success breeds repetition. The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Marvel and Sony have greenlit a sequel slated for July 5, 2019; almost exactly two years after the first. No word yet on who will direct and/or write the untitled sequel, but with that date making it the first Phase 4 movie, it’s surprising that Marvel will usher in a post-Infinity War age with a Sony film. With Peter Parker himself Tom Holland signed to a six-movie deal, as well as it being a safe-bet to think he’ll be in at least one of the upcoming team-up Avengers movies, it’s interesting to think who Spider-Man could fight after Thanos the Mad Titan. The July 2019 date will put the untitled sequel head-to-head with an untitled Illumination Entertainment movie from Universal.
THR also announced that due to the new release-date for Homecoming’s sequel, the date for Bad Boys 4 has shifted from July 3, 2019 to May 24. That date puts it up against WB’s Minecraft: The Movie. Bad Boys 3 will maintain its January 12, 2018 release date.
So, in case you needed an update, the MCU slate looks like this:
- Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 – May 5th 2017
- Spider-Man: Homecoming – July 7th 2017
- Thor: Ragnorok – November 3rd 2017
- Black Panther – February 16th 2018
- Avengers: Infinity War – May 4th 2018
- Ant-Man & The Wasp – July 6th 2018
