Sony has done some further reshuffling of its slate of upcoming releases in the wake of COVID-19. According to a new report, the studio has pushed back the release of both the untitled Spider-Man: Far From Home sequel and Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse 2.
It is being reported that Tom Holland’s next outing as Spider-Man has been pushed back four months from July 16, 2021, to Nov. 5, 2021. Additionally, the release of Into The Spider-Verse 2 has been pushed from April 8, 2022, to Oct. 7, 2022.
These moves, while upsetting to fans, comes as no surprise given the current state of production and Hollywood as a whole. The spread of COVID-19 has left the industry at a standstill resulting in almost all studios shifting much of their film slates.
Sony has also updated the release schedule for several other films. The projects affected by this shift can be seen below:
