The novel about Spider-Man's fate seems to have reached the final chapter positively on all sides. Sony Pictures and Walt Disney Studios have announced that Neighborhood Friend's third movie will be produced by Kevin Feige through Marvel Studios.
According to the announcement, the film will feature Tom Holland as its protagonist and will be released on July 16, 2021. The deal also allows Marvel Studios to use the hero in at least one more MCU movie. Amy Pascal will also produce through Pascal Pictures.
Feige spoke as well, showing that she was happy that the two studios had finally reached a compromise. "I am thrilled that Spider's journey at MCU will continue and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited to continue working on it," said Feige. “Spider-Man is an icon and a powerful hero whose story goes through (people of) all ages and audiences around the world. He is also the only hero with the superpower to traverse movie universes, so Sony will continue to develop its own Reverse Spider, you never know what surprises the future may bring. ”

Feige's speech suggests that Tom Holland may be featured in a few films featuring characters from the Spider-Man universe, such as the Venom sequel set to hit theaters by 2020. Sony still plans to release a movie with villain Morbius, and some TV productions.
Comings and goings
In August Marvel Studios decided to renew the Spider-Man rights agreement, asking for a higher percentage of profits. Until then, Sony had 95% of the box office, while Marvel could market the image of the hero. The proposal would be to share the profits evenly, which was rejected by Sony. No details were provided on the terms that made the studio back down and accept the partnership.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is currently Sony's biggest box office, grossing $ 1.109 billion worldwide.
