In February 2015, many Marvel fan dreams were made a reality; Sony and Disney finally found a way to get Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

There were, of course, a few minor problems; Sony had already released two The Amazing Spider-Man films intended to be part of a separate cinematic universe with multiple promised spin-offs, including Venom, The Sinister Six, and a rumoured Aunt May film. 

Looks like the studio is still planning to release multiple Spider-Man films in the near future as Tom Rothman, the chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Motion Picture Group, confirmed to Collider more spin-offs are on the way. 

“We’re working on a lot of that stuff,” he told the publication. “There’s a concerted effort, so I think there will be real news as opposed to speculated news before too long.”

Speaking about the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming, he said: “We wrapped filming the new Spider-Man about a week ago. There’s a little pick-up shooting being done now but [it’s] pretty much done. It’s fantastic.”

Earlier this year, The Hollywood Reporter detailed how a Venom film would be released soon but would not link to Tom Holland’s Homecoming. Venom previously appeared in Sony’s Spider-Man 3, played by Topher Grace, a film that was critically panned unlike the first two films in the trilogy.

Recently, Homecoming set pictures seemingly featured Mary Jane Watson being saved by the titular superhero.
