Spider-Man: Homecoming isn't even in theaters yet, but Marvel Studios and Sony have already selected a date for the sequel film.
Deadline Reports that Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 is eyeing a release date of July 5, 2019. That move shifts Bad Boys 4 to a new release date, and puts Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 either at the end of Marvel Phase 3, or at the beginning of Marvel Phase 4.
The trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming is current tearing up the Interwebs, and the fan reaction has been pretty strong. Tom Holland's Peter Parker made a strong impression in Captain America: Civil War and the Homecoming footage was strong enough to make us think it's going to be a major success. It's standard operating procedure for Sony and Marvel to therefore set a release date for the sequel - even this early.
