Sony has announced that a sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming is already in the works with a release date set as anticipation grows after last week’s global debut of the first two trailers from the upcoming reboot. Marvel have made the film with Sony as part of the deal that saw the web-slinger appear in this summer’s Captain America: Civil War.
Deadline is reporting that efforts are already underway to bring a sequel to the screen much quicker than anticipated and will now hit cinemas on July 5th, 2019. It does mean that Bad Boys 4, which was set to open on that weekend, has been moved but rather than being pushed back the fourth installment will instead open earlier on May 24th, 2019. It’s something of a surprise move given that Bad Boys 3 has still yet to go into production, but Joe Carnahan (Narc) is directing part three with both Will Smith and Martin Lawrence returning.
The first Homecoming trailer has been viewed over 17million times (if not more) and gave us our first look at Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, as well as glimpses of the returning Robert Downey Jnr. as Tony Stark / Iron Man and the film’s villain The Vulture, played by Oscar Nominee Michael Keaton (Birdman).
Spider-Man: Homecoming opens on July 7th, 2017.
