Yet another Marvel Studios project has reportedly been impacted by the spread of COVID-19. According to Sight & Sound Magazine, production on Tom Holland’s untitled Spider-Man sequel has been put on hold.
The sequel to Holland’s Spider-Man: Far From Home was scheduled to begin filming this summer, but a new report seems to cast some doubt on that timeline.
Reporting on the delays resulting from the spread of COVID-19 Sight & Sound Magazine claimed that the Marvel Studios project is one of the victims of the current pandemic.
“Blockbuster productions on pause include The Batman, an as-yet-untitled Spider-Man sequel and Disney’s live-action The Little Mermaid remake.”
Previously it was reported that filming on all Marvel Studios productions including Shang-Chi, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and WandaVision had been put on hold, but the status of Spider-Man remained in question. In addition to Marvel Studios’ productions being impacted, the release date of Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow has also been delayed. The film was supposed to be released on May 1, but now it remains undated.
The spread of COVID-19 has left the fate of many Hollywood productions uncertain given the closure of movie theaters and the health risks involved with large gatherings. For instance, Sony has had a massive overhaul of its film slate with several projects, including Morbius, Ghostbusters, and Uncharted moving to next year.
