After the release of Spider-Man: No Way Homethe president of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige and the producer Amy Pascal discussed the future of Spider-Man, officially confirming that the fourth film is under development. An agreement has not yet been made with Tom Holland for the new trilogy, as the actor is negotiating the new contract with Sony thanks to which he will receive a clear increase compared to the past.
At the moment there are still no details about the project and, at least officially, Tom Holland he hasn’t signed his contract yet. Despite this, according to various rumors, the actor actually signed in great secrecy with Sony Pictureswhich is now close to an official announcement.
A few hours ago the insider Tom Smith provided several updates on the project, explaining that the film is in active development with the goal of shooting it in 2023 and releasing it insummer 2024. Smith adds that Jon Wattsdirector of the previous films, is not inclined to return to the director’s booth because he is tired of cinecomics (this is the reason why he abandoned the direction of the film on Fantastic Four), which is pushing the production company to look for a new director:
The goal is to shoot in 2023 to release it in the summer of 2024. This has already been reported by The Cosmic Circus. Sony has been working on the story and script since the release of No Way Home and, as soon as they choose the director, should be ready to shoot.
Despite the apparent conclusion of his story in the finale of Spider-Man: No Way HomeSony would also like the return of Zendaya as MJ, but in this case, there hasn’t been a signing yet.
Unfortunately, Sony Pictures won’t be at CCXP (the Brazilian Comic-Con starting Thursday), so presumably an official announcement will only come online via the tradesi.e. the major US news sites.
The goal is to film in 2023 for a summer 2024 release. That’s already been reported by @MyCosmicCircus. Sony’s been working on the story and script for this film since NWH released so as soon as they lock in a director, it should be ready to film.
