Sony Pictures has announced that Spider-Man: Far From Home’s sequel has been delayed from November 5, 2021, to December 17, 2021.
The still untitled Spider-Man: Far From Home sequel was originally set to be released in theaters on July 16, 2021, and Tom Holland was set to first shoot Uncharted before once again becoming Peter Parker.
Production on the Uncharted film, in which Holland will play Nathan Drake, has not yet begun, but a Sony representative has confirmed that preparations are underway and they’re “hoping to start soon.”
This sequel to 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home will be followed by the sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse on October 7, 2022.
In our review of Spider-Man: Far From Home, which was the first MCU film to release after Avengers: Endgame, we said it is “a grandly entertaining culmination of the MCU wall-crawler’s journey so far. Thanks to its sweet humor, clever commentary, and deft action set-pieces, Far From Home continues the journey of Peter Parker from kid hero to Tony Stark’s successor.”
Spider-Man’s delay accompanied the delays of both the upcoming Star Wars and Avatar films that will be released in theaters on December 22, 2023, and December 16, 2022, respectively. The follow-ups to these films have also been delayed by a year.
