The two untitled Spider-Man sequels were pushed back by Sony Pictures for several months as Hollywood studios are still trying to fix their release schedules due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Sony Pictures announced on Friday that Marvel-Sony’s Spider-Man Far From Home sequel would be moved from July 16, 2021, to November 5, 2021. Sony Pictures Animation’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse sequel was also delayed by six months from April 8, 2022, to October 7, 2022.

Spider-Man Far From Home, starring Tom Holland was one of 2019’s most successful films, grossing $1.13 billion in box offices worldwide. The untitled film will be the third installment in the franchise, which began with 2017’s Spider-Man Homecoming.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse won last year’s Academy Award for the best-animated movie, grossing $375 million worldwide.

Holland’s video-game adaptation Uncharted was moved from October 8, 2021, to July 16, 2021.
