Spider-Man sequel announced for Independence Day 2019

12.09.2016

Yesterday the SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING trailer dropped and there was much rejoicing in the form of street dances, balloon-releasing, and a couple of riot fires. What can I say? People like to celebrate in their own way. Anyway, it seems Marvel has so much confidence in the new addition to the MCU that they’ve already gone and done announced a sequel before HOMECOMING has even come out.

Deadline got the scoop that Marvel is already planning another installment in the adventures of Spidey/Peter Parker (Tom Holland), and have selected the date of July 5, 2019 as their release. This will come almost exactly two years after the release of the upcoming film, which will hit July 7 of next year.

However, this announced sequel moves into the territory of another movie set to come out the same day that summer—BAD BOYS 4. Sony had originally set aside the date for the follow-up to the upcoming BAD BOYS 3, but will now bump it up to Memorial Day weekend for a May 24, 2019 release. Spidey still has competition, though, as Universal has a planned Illumination movie slated for then, while BOYS 4 will deal with the planned MINECRAFT movie from Warner Bros.

I like many was a fan of the HOMECOMING trailer, and clearly Marvel discovered the rest of the world was as well. Marvel has also been known to plan out their movies well enough in advance, so I’m not surprised they decided to make the move. My only hope is that HOMECOMING is as great as it looks so Marvel isn’t caught looking like fools. If they are they won’t be allowed back at the cool table anymore with the other popular studios, which is basically like social movie studio suicide.

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING is set for July 7.

Why couldnt they just make a Spiderman film with Morbeus as the villain, to me it feels like a no brainer, then at the end you can throw in Blade and have a blade/spiderman teamup against a hoard of blood sucking vampire created by Morbeus.

Dude I would love to see Morbius play the villain in a film and Spidey team up with Blade. Sadly, I don't see it happening, and I feel like the horror vibe wouldn't really blend with the bright and cheer vibe they're going for (which to be fair, is pretty faithful to the character's Ditko-era roots). I do agree that they should be using the films as springboards for potential TV show characters (for which Blade would be perfect). As much as I loved Daredevil squaring off against Punisher, I

I do agree that they should be using the films as springboards for potential TV show characters (for which Blade would be perfect). As much as I loved Daredevil squaring off against Punisher, I would have loved to see him go against Spidey even more (like his 1st appearance in the comics), but again it just fit the vibe of that show better than the vibe of the movies.

Im not a huge comic book fan or anything, but the 90's spiderman cartoon with the morbeus arc is my favorite villain in any broadcast of a comic book villain. Just amazing, and when blade rolls in to help him, legendary

As long as the first one's good, bring it on. If they're going to give us a villain we haven't seen yet then I'm hoping for Scorpion or Black Cat. Spot and Hydro-Man would both be cool too, although they're a little more obscure (then again, I never thought I'd get a movie with Shocker either).

If you're going to revamp a villain then please oh please give us a proper Venom, and then you can lead up to Carnage in #3 which I'm sure is what 99% of fans want.

Good Grief

That phrase isn't just the name of a Foo Fighter song; it's also how I feel about this over saturated franchise.

It's also the name of a song by Bastille.

And one by Dr. Dog

And one by Undertoad (whoever that is)

And an episode of Arrested Development

And the catchphrase of Charlie Brown

Are you referring to the MCU as a whole being over-saturated or just Spider-Man in particular?

Never heard those songs before, but I do love the Foo Fighter song of that name. It's a great energetic song.

But to answer your question, it's the MCU. I get the fact that there are so many characters and stories, but the sequels, and yes, three different Spideys, have worn on me. I do get overzealous in my comments, because my hate is not that serious in my head, but I am a little Marvel-weary in the present.
The only movie I'm actually excited for is Logan. It's another sequel,

The only movie I'm actually excited for is Logan. It's another sequel, but it has a completely different feel than the usual Marvel fanfare.

The most exciting part for me is which villain Peter will be fighting next. I think that they'll save Norman/Green Goblin for the third film since he is more of a heavyweight Spider Man villain. Perhaps MCU will finally introduce Kraven, or redo Venom again which would then lead to Carnage down the line.

Carnage is a cool character, but Maximum Carnage sucks, it's pretty much just get a hull bunch of random second string villains to go on a killing spree and then get a bunch of random heroes to team up with Spidey to take them down. Not much of a story there.

Also, for the life of me I don't get why fans complain nonstop about Sony forcing too many villains into Spider-Man 3 or Amazing Spider-Man 2 and then go on and on about wanting a movie that revolves around an absurd amount of villains
