MCU Phase 4 and beyond

Well, Sony's next film is Morbius in July 2020. Spidey 3 won't be till July 2021, and there's rumors that Tom Hardy's Venom will appear in it, and that a post-credits scene in Venom 2 (October 2020) will explain why he goes from San Francisco to New York.
Spidey 3 has been announced? Last update I saw by Marvel has no Spiderman in either phase 4 or 5.

Tom Holland's contract includes 3 solo Spidey films. Also, of course they're not gonna end it with FFH after that cliffhanger.

Don't disagree, but he has a 2021 date on it, and we have seen the phase 4 movies listed. Granted this is released by Sony, so they could put that caveat on it, but in the past they listed Spidey in MCU releases

Unfortunately, Sony announces it since they own Spidey. Probably at CCXP in December is when we'll get it, along with updates on Morbius and Venom 2.

Good catch, I wouldn't put too much faith in that July 2021 date just yet. We'll see if anything gets announced for Phase 5 at D23 in 2 weeks. But as far as I know Sony/Marvel doesn't even have any placeholder dates reserved for July 2021. That can always change on a moments notice, but with the movie slate being full they like to do it as soon as possible. So I'm betting more on a 2022/2023 time frame.

2021 would make the most sense because of the 2-year pattern.

Homecoming - July 7th, 2017

Far From Home - July 2nd, 2019

2 films a pattern does not make.

Spider-Man 3 is actually set to be produced by Marvel this time not Sony. This is due to Far from Home making over $1B. So don’t expect a Sony announcement, expect a Marvel announcement.

Marvel makes the movies, but Sony is in charge of announcements/marketing. The movie is a part of Sony's release slate hence why everyone expects them to announce it and not Disney. Marvel didn't even want to release Far From Home in 2019 because of Endgame, but it was Sony's decision to do so.

I've read what Zootopia Dude has read about the plan being every 2 years. I remember during press for Homecoming it was Holland who mentioned they were following the Harry Potter model of each film being a different year in High School. I'd imagine another incentive to do this every 2 years would be to avoid the actors getting too old:

Actually the 2 previous Spider-Man films were joint announcements by both Marvel and Sony, not Sony alone. Usually with both Feige and Pascal making the announcement.


"To be specific, Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures have jointly announced that Peter Parker's next solo adventure will be hitting the big screen on July 5, 2019."
And it was Feige who stated it would be a Harry Potter formula long before Holland ever mentioned it:


Also it was Feige who let Holland leak out the name of the film, so again its not Sony who announced it, it was Marvel under Feige's direction:



So just because it wasn't announced at Comic-Con, doesn't mean Marvel won't announce it in the future. Either at D23 or at a future date in a joint announcement with Sony just like last time.

Also it has always been understood that Sony is footing the bill for these films, which is why they get the box office and not Marvel, in exchange for Spider-Man being used in the larger MCU. So unless you can provide something that states specifically that Marvel is footing the bill then I'll continue to go under the assumption that Sony is.

Everything I've read and seen point back to this as well. Sony funds it, Marvel makes it, Sony gets the box office and Spider-Mans in the MCU.
