We will leave it up to interpretation who is “mommy” and who is “daddy” but nonetheless it is all around good news because Sony and Marvel Studios/Disney have made amends and the co-produced 3rd SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING film will happen. Amy Pascal will also once again co-produce through Pascal Pictures which she has done over the past two films.
The third film is scheduled for release on July 16, 2021. Also as part of the arrangement, Spider-Man will also appear in a future Marvel Studios film. Which ultimately makes this a very big win for all of the fans.
Now in case you are unaware what happened. money was the overall root of the problem. Disney was reportedly seeking a 50/50 co-financing stake in the Spider-man films. This is because of Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige’s continued guiding hand which resulted in the delivery of Sony’s highest grossing film ever with $1.13 billion. It also has to be mentioned that Disney already owns the merchandise on Spider-Man. The original Sony-Marvel deal over the last two SPIDER-MAN movies saw Disney getting an estimated 5% of first gross dollar.
This of course now has changed with the renewed partnership. Sony has agreed to the terms that Disney proposed for its participation in a future Spider-Man sequel. With this Disney/Marvel Studios would co-finance 25% of a third HOMECOMING movie for a 25% equity stake.
Kevin Feige released a statement which stated,
“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. 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.”
Amy Pascal who has produced the first two Tom Holland led Spider-man films also released a statement.
“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. This has been a winning partnership for the studios, the franchise and the fans and I’m overjoyed it will continue.”
No matter what we now can breathe a sigh of relief as the conclusion to the story can be told and then see what happens within Sony’s own Spider-man Universe.
The resident Super Villain is back with another review and this time its for the Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios collaboration in SPIDER-MAN FAR FROM HOME.
Jay talks about the final movie in Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and how it fits in the story following the events of Avengers Endgame and what does the future hold for the wall crawler.
OH YES THERE WILL BE SPOILERS SO YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. Be ready to watch along and enjoy.
Over the past weekend Tom Holland teased that we would be getting something today. Now with no real telling what that could be, many were hoping for a new SPIDER-MAN Far From Home trailer.
Well we did not get that….yet? But we did get a bunch of new posters for the wall crawlers next adventure.
Check them out below
Spider-Man Far From Home hits theaters this summer July 5th
We have all been waiting on it, after the breakdown we received from the Brazil Comic Con. Now it is finally upon us and it is a good one. Of course this is talking about the trailer for Spider-Man Far From Home.
There are a lot of big reveals here, includingplot details, Aunt May’s acceptance of Peter as the wall crawler, new suits and most excitingly, a first look at Mysterio. Gyllenhaal as Quentin beck looks incredible in action and even has that iconic fishbowl helmet which is bound to make comic book fans happy but is he the lone villain as we also see Hydro Man.
Check out the trailer for yourself and enjoy.
More behind the scenes photos from the filming of Spider-Man Far From Home are here and it gives us the wall crawler in another new suit.
This time we see Tom Holland who plays Spidey decked out in a red and black suit. There was a toy of the suit in the past. See below
It seems that Mr. Stark may have hooked up Peter with a variety of suits outside of just the upgraded variation and the iron spider. Add this to the noir-esque one we have seen and it beckons the question how many more suits will be used in the movie.
Cannot wait til 2019 for this one
Photos have recently been released from the set of Spider-Man:Far From Home with show the wall crawler donning a black stealth suit that is reminiscent to his original spidey suit in Spider-Man Homecoming as well as an ode to the classic Spider-Man Noir look.
Now further closeups show a bit more detail about the suit that may hold some potential spoilers as we head into Avengers 4 which is currently still untitled.
As you can see not only is the suit dark and stealthy but is also appears to be armor plated and even sort of tactical.
Now if we look at a lightened version of the photo reveals that the costume has a S.H.I.E.L.D. logo on it and that may provide some major clues about both this movie and Avengers 4. In case you have been under a rock both Nick Fury and Maria Hill will appear in the sequel and yes they did turn to coffee grounds in Avengers Infinity War but it does not that they do not return in the next Avengers team up that releases in theaters before the second Spider-Man film. Could it be that the organization is reformed after the Thanos attack which would absolutely be understood within the MCU.
Comedian and actor J.B Smoove has been added to the cast of the upcoming Sony film Spider-Man: Far From Home. Now Sony has yet to disclose what his official role in the movie will be but it is being told that it is a lead in part of the ensemble cast. this is the only additional casting announcement since Jake Gyllenhaal was announced to be playing Mysterio.
Tom Holland is reprising his role as Peter Parker a.k.a Spider-Man along with Zendaya and Michael Keaton returning in their roles as well.
Spider-Man Far From Home is set to hit theaters July 5 2019.
If it isn’t broke then don’t try to fix it.
That’s the best way to describe the formula for the highly successful MCU solo film debut of your friendly wall crawler in Spider-man:Homecoming. With its success, rave reviews and overall praise of Tom Holland webbing his way into people’s hearts, it’s a blast to hear that the same writers are on board for the sequel and potentially its director as well thanks to this exclusive from The Hollywood Reporter.

Screenwriters Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers are back in the spider’s web.
The duo, who worked on Spider-Man: Homecoming, are in final negotiations to return to the world of Peter Parker to write the sequel to the Sony Pictures/Marvel Studios hit.
Homecoming, a resetting of Sony’s Spider-Man franchise that places the new movies within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, was a major hit for Sony, winning over critics and the comic book fans. It spun over $319 million domestically at the box office and $737 million worldwide. (The previous entry, 2014’s derided The Amazing Spider-Man 2, grossed $202 million domestically and $708 million worldwide.)
Sony and Marvel are hoping to keep many of the creative elements of Homecoming together and are already in talks to have Jon Watts return to the director’s chair. Tom Holland is set to return as the web-crawling hero.
Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 is scheduled for a July 5, 2019, release.
McKenna and Sommers hail from the comedy and animation world, having been writer-producers on American Dad andCommunity (separately, McKenna wrote on The Mindy Project, with Sommers working on Happy Endings and Marry Me). The duo worked on The Lego Batman Movie and wrote on Sony and Marvel’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle andAnt-Man and the Wasp movies, respectively, before coming on board Homecoming.
With Spiderman:Homecoming just a week away not only is the anticipation building but we are starting to get a bit more information about Peter Parker. Now we initially thought that our first introduction to Peter in the MCU came in Captain America:Civil War but the web-slinger himself Tom Holland has delivered another tidbit of information.
Remember in Iron Man 2 when the hammer drones went rogue at the Stark Expo? Well there is a belief that the youngster wearing an Iron Man mask who stands up to one of Justin Hammer’s drones is, in fact, the future Spider-Man.
In a recent interview, the actor revealed that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has told him that the kid saved by Tony Stark is indeed Peter.
“I can confirm that is Peter Parker. I can confirm that as of today. I literally had a conversation with Kevin Feige only 20 minutes ago. Maybe I’ve just done a big, old spoiler, but it’s out there now. It’s cool,”
he added. “I like the idea that Peter Parker has been in the universe since the beginning.”
Whether or not that was meant to be Peter at the time is hard to say and it’s something that only Feige and Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau probably know for sure. Either way, this is an incredible Easter Egg and one hell of a retcon which gives Spidey a very special place in the MCU. We’ll have to wait until next week to find out whether or not this moment is actually referenced in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Well if the movie thats happening already doesn’t make much sense, where here’s more to add on to it.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock will be facing off against Carnage. In the comics, Carnage is a symbiote, just like Venom, who attached to Brock’s prison cellmate, serial killer Cletus Kassidy.
As the story goes after Brock manages to escape prison by using the symbiote, some of it was left behind and attached to Kassidy, transforming him into Carnage. Carnage’s powers include shapeshifting, physical strength that’s more powerful than Venom and Spider-Man combined, and the ability to plant thoughts into people’s minds. Carnage is also more accepting and bonded with his symbiote and uses the term “I” as opposed to Brock who still is two separate entities.
The Hollywood Reporter has also heard that, even though Spider-Man star Tom Holland is only contractually obligated to Spider-Man 2 and 3, the plan is to still bring him into the spinoffs films, like Venom, as well as potentially other Marvel movies. Which let’s all be honest would only make ALL of the sense in the world.
Venom will open in theaters on October 5, 2018, with Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer set to direct. Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, and Amy Pascal are producing the film. Reports suggest Venom will be of the action, horror, and sci-fi genres. Who would you like to see play the role of the Serial Super Killer opposite Tom Hardy?
