Although Spider-Man: Homecoming doesn't hit screens for another two weeks, a sequel for the film was already announced back in December following the release of the film's first trailer. At the time, it was revealed that the movie would open in July of 2019, making it the first film to follow the still untitled Avengers 4, something Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has confirmed in a new interview to promote Homecoming.
While discussing the character's future within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the rumors that suggested the Sony spin-offs would exist within the MCU, Feige confirmed (via Jo Blo) that the untitled follow-up to Spider-Man: Homecoming will be the first film to debut following the fourth Avengers film.
Civil War, Homecoming, we've already shot a lot of Tom Holland's scenes in the upcoming Avengers films, and we're just starting to solidify our plans for Homecoming 2 - we won't call it that, whatever it is - which is exciting because it'll be the first MCU movie after untitled Avengers in 2019. It'll be the way Civil War informed everything in Homecoming, those movies will launch him off into a very new cinematic universe at that point. Those five movies are we're focusing on.
Given Feige's previous comments of the Marvel Cinematic Universe looking "very different" following Avengers 4, it's exciting to think of what that means for Spider-Man, especially after it was revealed a brand new MCU hero will join Peter in the sequel to Homecoming. For now, fans will get to see Spider-Man's first solo journey set within the MCU when Homecoming hits theaters in two weeks.
Arriving July 7, director Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Homecoming stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr. Tickets are on sale now.
