Tom Holland has revealed that Spider-Man 3 (working title) is due to wrap principal photography early next year.
Remember last year when people got so worried that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man would be leaving the MCU? Doesn’t that feel like a million years ago? Well, despite Sony and Marvel almost breaking up their deal to share Spider-Man and a global pandemic, Tom Holland’s third solo outing as the Webslinger is due to wrap early next year. Fans can expect it in February of 2021.
This news came from the actor himself during a recorded conversation with his father and brother about his upcoming work schedule. The relevant clip from the conversation was later posted to Reddit, and in it Holland mentions that he is due to finish working on the Uncharted movie before moving on to the next Spider-Man film, with the latter due to finish production in February.
I’m assuming that Holland is referring to principal photography here, which leaves a further eight or nine months for post-production until the movie’s planned release on November 5, 2021. That’s about the same amount of time between the end of principal photography and the theatrical release of Spider-Man: Far From Home, which puts the third installment right on schedule. That is, unless the Coronavirus pandemic causes further delays.
Delays seem likely, sadly, but I’m really curious to see the direction they take with Holland’s Spider-Man in the third film given the way Far From Home ended. Also, seeing as we’re due to see Holland return to the character one more time in another MCU film, I can’t help but wonder if they’ll try to close out his arc somehow before he becomes Sony’s exclusive property again.
Personally, I refuse to give up hope that Sony and Marvel will maintain the deal they’ve had so far. It seems to have worked out for them pretty well financially, to say the least, and the fans are definitely happy with the result.
What do you think? What direction do you want the filmmakers to choose for Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in his next appearance? Or are you more interested which villain(s) they’ll choose to include?
