After Sony announced yesterday that Venom 2: Let There Be Carnage was being pushed back to 2021, it appears the Untitled Spider-Man 3 film may get pushed back as well. The Sony and Disney produced film was scheduled to open July 7, 2021 and was set to begin shooting this July. However, in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel Live, Peter Parker himself, Tom Holland said that he is unsure if shooting will start on time.
“I’m not too sure,” the actor started. “I was in Berlin, making a film called Uncharted with Mark Wahlberg. We were all ready to go, we went to set for day one of shooting, and then we got shut down and we got sent home. So whether we shoot that movie first or we shoot Spider-Man first, I’m not clear.”Tom Holland on Jimmy Kimmel Live
When Sony made the announcement about Venom 2 being delayed, it was very curious that they did not also push back the MCU’s Spider-Man 3. It was also strange that they set the Venom sequel to open only 3 weeks before the Spidey film. One would think that the studio would want more separation to maximize box-office earnings.
Since the film is being co-produced with Marvel Studios, perhaps both sides are in the process of figuring out a new date for the movie. Or maybe both parties are confident that they can still get the film done for it’s July 7, 2021 release date. Either way, after the way Far From Home ended, I can not wait to see it.
