Sony is contractually bound to make a new Spider-Man film every few years, that’s why we’ve had so many Spider-Man movies in the past two decades… and why so many of them have been the same. But the third installment in the newest trilogy will easily be the most exciting Spider-Man movie made to date. For the first time in recent history, we’ll get a story nobody ever dared to make, and now we’ve learned that it all starts shooting next summer.
Sony’s Spider-Man films have something else in common, apart from just rehashing the same old stories: Peter Parker’s secret identity remains secret throughout all of Sony’s movies. In the MCU going forward, however, everybody will know who Spider-Man is, and that’s thanks to the massive revelation at the end of the film. Not only that, but Peter Parker will have to defend himself against claims of having killed Mysterio. The standalone Spider-Man 3 film will tell that story.
We have no idea what the Spider-Man 3 plot will have to offer, and it’s too early for major leaks. But whatever happens in the third installment of MCU’s Spider-Man, Marvel will use the superhero in at least one other MCU movie after that, and it could be a new MCU crossover similar to Avengers.
