Marvel will help Spider-Man swing into action for a new film after all.
Marvel Studios and parent company Disney announced with Sony Friday that they’ll collaborate to produce one last Tom Holland-led “Spider-Man” film, swinging into theaters July 16, 2021. Marvel chief Kevin Feige will produce and Holland will reprise his role as Peter Parker/Spider-Man.
Specifics of the deal have not been released, but The Hollywood Reporter notes Feige will “run creative point” on the film.
“I am thrilled that Spidey’s journey in the MCU will continue, and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited that we get to keep working on it,” Feige said in a statement.
Jon Watts, who directed “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and the sequel, “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” is in talks to direct, Deadline reports.
The news comes just weeks after the studios announced Marvel and Feige would no longer work on “Spider-Man” films, though two upcoming features were already in the pipeline.
This past summer, “Far From Home" — Holland’s second solo film as the webslinger — became Sony’s highest-grossing film ever.
In late August, just days after severing ties with Marvel, Holland told Entertainment Weekly, “I’m going to continue playing Spider-Man and having the time of my life. It’s going to be so fun, however we choose to do it.”
Friday morning, Holland gave a not-so-subtle nod to the news with an Instagram post that included a clip from “The Wolf of Wall Street” in which Leonardo DiCaprio’s Jordan Belfort proclaims, “I’m not leaving. I’m not leaving. I’m not f----g leaving,” to a round of applause.
Holland, 23, capped off his reaction with a smirking emoji.
