For some time now we have known that as far as Spider-Man goes in the MCU, we will be getting some more movies. At least one more solo Spider-Man movie, which for now we will simply call Spider-Man 3, and one unnamed team-up movie. Apart from that we also know the date this movie will release, currently slated for July 16, 2021. Outside of that, we are in rumor and conjecture territory.
One man who does know all the secrets is Spider-Man star himself Tom Holland. However, Holland says he has learned his lesson on giving away spoilers.
“I know everything now. I had my big pitch meeting with Marvel and Sony about two weeks, and I know all the secrets,” Holland told Hey U Guys at the premiere for Pixar’s Onward. “But I’ve also done about a thousand interviews, so I know how to not spoil a movie anymore.”
So Spider-Man 3 is ready to go it seems, but it will be a while yet before any details begin to slip out. Holland will, I’m sure, have been warned about giving away too much this time. Both Holland and fellow Avenger Mark Ruffalo have been on the naughty step from Marvel before for giving too much away.
My current ‘guesstimate’ about Spider-Man 3 would be that Kraven will be the villain. The ending of Far From Home proved a great catalyst into their potential conflict, add to that how much Kraven has been rumored recently, and it adds up. There is still no smoking gun here and some of the rumors have Kraven lined up for a solo movie instead. In my opinion, though, it’s the best guess based on the current information, but still just a guess.
I suppose as a fan, whilst I am happy to get more MCU Spider-Man, I also am greedy for more. Tom Rothman’s comments recently certainly intrigued me. The Sony executive recently said that he had hopes for a further deal with Disney.
“I hope so,” he said at a THR studio roundtable. “I think this was a classic win-win-win. I think it was a win for Sony. I think it was a win for Disney. I think it was a win for fans and moviegoers. The only thing I would say about that is that news cycles and the rhythm of negotiations don’t necessarily overlap…I think we would have gotten there and the news got ahead of some things.”
Surely as a fan, I can hope this relationship goes on for many more years to come? Whether that dream becomes a reality or not, that’s a different question. For now, I just have to be happy that my favorite Spider-Man movie to date (Far From Home) is getting a sequel.
