For a short while, fans were worried that Spider-Man was going to leave the MCU. However, cooler heads prevailed and we will see a third Spider-Man movie set inside the MCU.

Disney's Alan Horn and Sony Pictures' Tom Rothman spoke to The Hollywood Reporter on how important it was for both sides to agree on Spider-Man's future film use. It sounds like they made up in order to please the fans.

Alan Horn's comments can be seen below.

"The fan base, which is important to all of us, seemed to really respond to what Tom and his folks have done before with our people. They like the fact that the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Kevin Feige were involved [in the two Spider-Man films]. We heard feedback out there that suggested that joining forces once again was probably really a good idea".

Tom Rothman's comments are below.

"Yes, we have. But I agree with my distinguished colleague. This was a classic win-win-win. A win for Sony, a win for Disney, a win for the fans. The only thing I would say is that news cycles and the rhythm of negotiations do not necessarily overlap. And this is, in the words of Shakespeare, a consummation devoutly to be wished. We would have gotten there, and the news got ahead of some things."

The third MCU Spider-Man movie now has a release date on July 16th, 2021. It is expected to follow the events of Far From Home after its shocking post credits scenes!
