Last night, Marvel finally graced us with our first full length trailer featuring everyone’s favorite web head in his new film, Spider-Man: Homecoming. Needless to say, the internet went crazy. This was pretty much expected though, seeing as how big of a character Spider-Man is. What’s even better is that Sony and Marvel Studios were able to come to a consensus that allows them to share the rights to the famed character, meaning we’ll get to see some web action in future Marvel films (like we did in Captain America: Civil War).
Now, seeing Spidey work with other heroes is obviously a treat to watch. However, he has an abundance of great stories that could be told in solo films. That just makes you wonder if any sequels are on the way, and how soon we’ll get to see Peter Parker back in action. Well thanks to Deadline, we now have an idea.
In an exclusive report, Deadline has announced that Sony revealed their plan to release the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming on July 5th, 2019. Now, that date was originally saved for Bad Boys 4, the fourth installment in Will Smith and Martin Lawrence’s buddy cop action comedy. Bad Boys 4 has now been bumped up to May 24, 2019, during Memorial Day weekend.
The fact that Sony came forward with this news so swiftly, and the fact that they bumped up the release date means they clearly have a lot of faith in this property. But after the positive feedback of just the trailer alone, who can blame them? We just hope their deal with Marvel pays off, because the fans might not be able to handle another disappointing film featuring their friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters on July 7th, 2017.
