Tom Holland exclusively tells Yahoo that he's "blown away" by footage of his upcoming Marvel movie as the official title — and link to "WandaVision" — is revealed.
Looks like we’re close to finding out what the actual title is for the upcoming third MCU “Spider-Man” movie. Or so we assume thanks to Tom Holland and his co-stars Jacob Batalon and Zendaya, who trolled fans on social media with an inspired set of bait-and-switch fakes. First up was Holland. “So excited to announce the new Spider-Man title. Can’t wait for you lot to see what we have been up to. Love from Atlanta,” Holland wrote on his Instagram. Exciting! But then this turned out to be the reveal: Tom Holland on Instagram Zing! “Spider-Man: Phone Home” is a pretty funny title but wait… One of the big reveals in “Far From Home” was that Nick Fury and Maria Hill turned out to be Skrull shapeshifters filling in for the real Nick and Maria who, for some reason, were off in space. Could this mean “Spider-Man” 3 actually will include an appearance by “E.T. the Extraterrestrial”? Just kidding. Also Read: Alfred Molina to Return as Doctor Octopus in 'Spider-Man 3' Next, Holland was topped by his co-star Jacob Batal0n, who posed what we think is an even funnier joke: Jacob Batal0n on Instagram “Spider-Man: Home-Wrecker” isn’t just a funny joke though, we hope it means it’s now canon that “Spider-Man” 3 will involve Peter somehow breaking up someone’s marriage. Juuust kidding. Finally, Zendaya came with a joke of her own emphasizing the power of friendship: Zendaya on Instagram All very amusing but yeah, this is also a very coordinated gag. Our guess is the real, actual, non-kidding official “Spider-Man 3” title is coming soon. Maybe when Holland appears on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” later tonight.Zendaya Meanwhile, Holland, Batalon and Zendaya also provided images from the still-untitled film. Nothing much happens in them but if you want to see how the three main characters are still the three main characters, have a look.

Benedict Cumberbatch is set to return as sorcerer supreme Doctor Strange in the upcoming “Spider-Man 3” opposite Tom Holland, according to an individual with knowledge of the project.Cumberbatch is expected to play the mentor role that was played in previous Spider-Man films by Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark in “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury in “Spider-Man: Far From Home.”With the multiverse being all the rage in superhero movies these days, the biggest clue so far that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is heading in a similar direction like DC is the news last week that Jamie Foxx is in talks to reprise his Spider-Man villain Electro in the next “Spider-Man” film as well. Foxx played the character in the 2014 “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” which starred Andrew Garfield as the web-slinger before the character was brought into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.Also Read: 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness' Pushed Back 4 Months to 2022Sony has dated the third film for Nov. 5, 2021.

Hollywood studios are shuffling more release dates as a result of the coronavirus, including sequels to “Doctor Strange," “Spider-Man: Far From Home" and “Into the Spider-Verse.” Late Friday, both Sony Pictures and The Walt Disney Co. announced updated theatrical release schedules that significantly delay some of their marquee superhero films. Marvel's “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness," the sequel to the 2016 Benedict Cumberbatch film, has been pushed back from November 2021 to March 2022.
Sony Pictures Animation has dated a sequel to the Academy Award-winning “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” for April 8, 2022, the company announced on Friday.The original film won the Academy Award for animated feature at the 2019 Oscars. Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Vivo” was also bumped from November 6, 2020 to April 16, 2021.“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” was directed by Bob Perischetti, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman. The film captures the sprawling interconnectivity of comic-book universes in a way that no other feature film has. Anything can happen, and it usually does. It’s incredibly thrilling to watch, impressively emotional throughout, and easily the best Spider-Man movie since “Spider-Man 2.”“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” stars Shameik Moore (“Dope”) as Miles Morales, a half-black, half-Latino teenager torn between his overbearing yet good-natured police officer father Jefferson (Brian Tyree Henry) and his more relaxed, sketchier uncle Aaron (Mahershala Ali). While Miles practices his graffiti art with his uncle, he’s bitten by a radioactive spider, and we all know what that means.Meanwhile, a breach between alternate dimensions brings other “Spider” heroes, including “Spider-Man Noir” (Nicolas Cage), Peter Porker, AKA Spider-Ham (John Mulaney), Spider-Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld) and an older, sadder Peter Parker (Jake Johnson) into Miles’ world. Together, they must team up to stop the Kingpin (Liev Schreiber) and Doctor Octopus (Kathryn Hahn) from destroying the multiverse.“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” is produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman directed from a screenplay by Lord. The film is produced, in association with Marvel, by Avi Arad, Amy Pascal, Lord, Miller, and Christina Steinberg.Read original story ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ Sequel Lands Spring 2022 Release Date At TheWrap

It looks like Tom Holland is getting used to saving the day.After the reported split between Disney and Sony that would’ve separated the Spider-Man franchise from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Disney CEO Bob Iger explained that it was Holland, Spider-Man himself, who helped the two companies come to a deal again.Iger was a guest on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Thursday night talking about his new memoir “The Ride of a Lifetime,” and Jimmy Kimmel asked if it was true that Holland was responsible for getting Marvel and Sony to come together. Iger said that bringing Spider-Man back into the fold happened “miraculously,” and that Holland really was part of the conversation.Also Read: Bob Iger: George Lucas 'Felt Betrayed' When Disney Didn't Use His 'Star Wars' Sequel Plans“It was clear that the fans wanted Tom back as Spider-Man, made by Marvel and our Marvel production team,” Iger told the ABC late-night host. “It was clear that he cared so much, and we care about him. And he’s a great Spider-Man, isn’t he? I felt for him, and it was clear the fans wanted this to happen.”Here’s how it went down. Holland was at Disney’s D23 event for a panel on the upcoming Pixar movie he stars in alongside Chris Pratt called “Onward.” At that event, Holland addressed the news of the split between Sony and Marvel by saying, “It’s been a long week … But I just want to let you all know … I love you 3000.”What we didn’t see was that Holland then requested Iger’s contact information and got in touch with the Disney boss to see what could be done to patch things up. Iger even joked that Holland cried on the phone, which didn’t actually happen. But Iger then called the head of Sony and said “we’ve got to figure out a way to get this done.”Also Read: Disney Chief Bob Iger Says 'It Wasn't Right' to Stay on Apple's Board“Like two divorced parents coming together and figuring it out,” Kimmel said. “Sometimes companies when they’re negotiating, or other people are negotiating, they forget there are other people who actually matter,” Iger responded.It truly was a scary month or so there. In August, the Sony and Marvel partnership, which has resulted in the $880.2 million-grossing “Spider-Man: Homecoming” film and the $1.1 billion “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” ended. Marvel bailed on the arrangement over a dispute regarding the financing of future films, an insider told TheWrap at the time.But that ended late last month, and the two additional Spider-Man films that are still in development, including the next one slated for release on July 16, 2021, are both set to star Tom Holland and be directed by Jon Watts. As part of the renewed agreement, Spider-Man will also appear in a future Marvel Studios film. Amy Pascal will also produce through Pascal Pictures, as she did on the first two films.Watch Iger’s full clip above.Read original story Bob Iger Explains How Tom Holland Saved Spider-Man in the Marvel-Sony Partnership (Video) At TheWrap
Before Sony and Disney announced their surprise reconciliation at the end of September regarding the future of the Spider-Man movie franchise, the two media companies were as far apart as they could be. The relationship, you'll recall, had fallen apart over money, with each side pointing fingers at the other. Indeed, a deal was so unlikely that sources say talks for a third Spider-Man movie at that point were "100% dead."That's according to The Hollywood Reporter, which on Wednesday afternoon issued a report revealing the surprise twist behind how the reversal. For that, folks, we apparently have Tom Holland himself to thank.The star himself reportedly engaged in some personal outreach directly with both Disney CEO Bob Iger and Sony film chairman Tom Rothman, urging them to not let the licensing and financial details of both companies' Spider-Man relationship get in the way of giving fans of the character more of what they want. Remember, the situation at that point was pretty bleak. Nevertheless, THR reports that the 23-year-old actor pleaded on multiple occasions for both movie executives to bury the hatchet and find a way to keep Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.It worked because, on September 27, the announcement came down that Marvel is producing Spider-Man 3, to be released in July of 2021. Holland's character, likewise, will appear in at least one more Marvel film. As we noted earlier on Wednesday, that additional film is most likely Avengers 5.Holland's behind-the-scenes diplomacy seems to have gotten underway in earnest post-D23. At that point, he began making entreaties to Rothman to reopen talks with Disney, in addition to reaching out directly to Iger. As THR notes, Holland was also able to show both executives how much loyalty is out there from fans of Spider-Man who were upset at the news of the character's future being in doubt, which seems to have broken the camel's back."I am thrilled that Spidey's journey in the MCU will continue, and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited that we get to keep working on it," Marvel's Kevin Feige said in a statement about the Sony-Disney thaw. "Spider-Man is a powerful icon and hero whose story crosses all ages and audiences around the globe. He also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes, so as Sony continues to develop their own Spidey-verse you never know what surprises the future might hold."
