The release date of the next installment of the Spider-Man franchise is the same date Marvel was scheduled to release Thor: Ragnarok, which has now been pushed to November 3rd, 2017.

Bob Iger, Chairman and CEO, The Walt Disney Company said: “Spider-Man is one of Marvel’s great characters, beloved around the world. We’re thrilled to work with Sony Pictures to bring the iconic web-slinger into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which opens up fantastic new opportunities for storytelling and franchise building.”

“We always want to collaborate with the best and most successful filmmakers to grow our franchises and develop our characters. Marvel, Kevin Feige and Amy, who helped orchestrate this deal, are the perfect team to help produce the next chapter of Spider-Man,” said Michael Lynton, Chairman and CEO of Sony Pictures Entertainment. “This is the right decision for the franchise, for our business, for Marvel, and for the fans.”

The original plan was for Sony to release Sinister Six in 2016, following up with the female Spider-man in 2017 before The Amazing Spider-Man 3 in 2018.
