The Untitled Spider-Man 3 film has once again been pushed back. Thankfully this time, it’s only a month. A short while ago, Sony announced that the third entry in the MCU Spider-Man series has been pushed from November 5, 2021, to December 17, 2021.
Unlike past delays, the decision looks to be a strategic move by the studio. Earlier in the evening, Disney announced that Avatar 2 was being moved out from it’s December 17, 2021 slot to the following year. It appears Sony saw this as an opportunity to move one of their most anticipated films into the holiday box office season.
The film, which is jointly being produced with Marvel Studios, is expected to begin filming in the Fall and finish by February.
As mentioned before, this is not the first time the Spidey flick has been delayed. Back in April it was pushed from July 16, 2021, to November 2021 because of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Casting news and plot details have been tight-lipped so far. After the way it ended for Peter Parker in 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home, you can bet that it will be good.
