Just a few days after the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer was dropped on Jimmy Kimmel Live, to the excitement of fans everywhere, another speck of information was released about the franchise.

As of this writing, Spider-Man: Homecoming has a release date of July 7, 2017, and now, according to THR, Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 will swing into theaters with tenuous date of July 5, 2019, roughly two years later.  Rarely are these comic book movies released on the exact date announced, especially when 3 years away (and especially since this isn’t an official announcement from Sony), but there is correlating news of another big franchise which could confirm the date.

Bad Boys 4 starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence was actually bumped up a month ahead of schedule to make room for the webslinger, changing its date to May 24, 2019.  The Martin Lawrence vehicle will then open against Warner Brother’s Minecraft and Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 will face off to an untitled Universal/Illumination Entertainment franchise. Bad Boys 3 (Bad Boys For Life) is set for a Jan 12, 2018 release.

2019 is quite a long time from now in movie terms, and in fact, Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 would be the furthest set date for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it should be an exciting summer, as an untitled Avengers 4 film is due May 3rd of the same year.  There is no word if Avengers 4 will have anything at all to do with the Infinity War or if the movie will be a brand new adventure. Furthermore, this seems like a good indication that Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 could usher in Phase 4 of The MCU.

Is it way too early to even think about Spider-Man: Homecoming 2, or was the trailer released Thursday so awesome that you simply can’t wait to talk about the sequel? Lets hear your thoughts about it below.

Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters on July 7, 2017.
