The upcoming third installment in the Sony/Marvel Tom Holland-led Spider-Man franchise is going to take a little longer to hit theaters as Sony has announced it is pushing the release back a month for the MCU title, according to The Wrap.
Originally scheduled for a July 16, 2021 release, the film was first pushed back to November 5 and will now be released on December 17th 2021. The untitled third instalment’s previous release date was recently given to Uncharted, with Holland revealing in an Instagram video that filming for SpiderMan 3 should begin around February 2021 after the conclusion of the filming for Nathan Drake’s long-awaited big-screen debut which he also stars in.
The news comes the same day as competitor studios Disney, Paramount and Warner Bros. all announced the delays of a number of their major releases including Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, the live-action adaptation of Mulan, John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place Part II, the long-awaited Tom Cruise sequel Top Gun: Maverick and James Cameron’s four Avatar sequels.
Tom Holland will return for the film as the titular wall-crawler, and it remains to be seen what villains he’ll go up against in the trilogy caper. Given the ending of Far From Home however, any number of his rogues gallery are likely eager for a fight. The third installment to the MCU’s Spider-Man films will also feature the return of Zendaya (Euphoria, Dune) as MJ. Holland’s Spider-Man is also set to appear in another Marvel Studios film per the new agreement.
