SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Sequel Thwips up 2019 Release Date
A day after Sony and Marvel debuted the first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming, Sony has announced a Spider-Man sequel will swing into theaters almost exactly two years later on July 5th, 2019. The news was first reported by Deadline. Spidey takes the release window originally slated for Sony’s Bad Boys 4, which will now open earlier on May 24th, 2019. Distributed and owned by Sony but creatively produced by Marvel Studios, Spider-Man: Homecoming marks the webhead’s first solo film as part of the interconnected Marvel Cinematic Universe after making his brief but acclaimed debut in Captain America: Civil War this past summer.
“We’re working very much [together]. It is a— I don’t know exactly what the credits will be, but it is a Sony Pictures production of a Marvel Studios film,” Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios president and producer, previously shared of the deal between Columbia Pictures and Disney-owned Marvel Studios. “The agreement was that it is very much a Sony Pictures movie. Amy Pascal is co-producing it with us and [Sony Chairman] Tom Rothman is leading the charge for Sony and that we are the creative producers.” Spider-Man: Homecoming joins a 2017 Marvel lineup that includes Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (out May 5th) and Thor: Ragnarok (out November 3rd). Spidey’s currently untitled 2019 sequel will release the same year as Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel (March 8th, 2019) and the untitled Avengers 4 (May 3rd, 2019).
Directed by Jon Watts and starring Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Marisa Tomei, Bokeem Woodbine, Zendaya, Laura Harrier, Jacob Batalon and Robert Downey Jr, Spider-Man: Homecoming opens July 7th, 2017. Marvel and Sony’s second Spider-Man movie will open July 5th, 2019.
