Sony simply made a couple of adjustments to its upcoming launch schedule, together with the position of two new horror films subsequent yr. Nevertheless, it additionally moved an “Untitled Sony/Marvel Universe” film from launch in late 2023 into summer season 2024, and that has us questioning… is that when Tom Holland is likely to be again as Spider-Man?
Let’s begin with the precise information although. First up, Sony revealed that the Insidious franchise will return for the fifth chapter on July 7, 2023. It’s directed by Patrick Wilson, in his directorial debut, and can star Wilson and Ty Simpkins from the primary two movies, 10 years after they final shared the display in Insidious: Chapter Two. No phrase on Rose Byrne’s doable look however, as beforehand reported, it should happen with Simpkins’ character going to varsity. Scott Teems wrote the script from a narrative he got here up with alongside franchise co-creator Leigh Whannell. The studio additionally dated a movie known as The Pope’s Exorcist for April 7, 2023. Directed by Julius Avery (Overlord), it stars Russell Crowe as Father Gabriele Amorth, an Italian priest who reportedly carried out over 100,000 exorcisms for the Vatican.
So these are the brand new dates. Sony additionally moved Madame Internet again from July 2023 to October 6, 2023; the Sam Raimi-produced, Adam Driver-starring sci-fi movie 65 again two weeks to April 28, 2023; and, as talked about above, an untitled Sony/Marvel Universe movie from October 6, 2023, to June 7, 2024.
That final title is the attention-grabbing one as a result of it takes a movie beforehand scheduled for mainly a Halloween launch and provides it nearly a complete different yr main into an enormous, summer season launch date. So what’s it? It’s not Madame Internet, clearly. It’s not an animated Spider-Verse movie, as these are already dated. It’s not Kraven the Hunter which is scheduled for launch in January 2023, and it’s not El Muerto, the Dangerous Bunny wrestling hero adaptation scheduled for launch January 2024.
So what’s left? One thing new that we haven’t heard about, presumably? A Sinister Six movie? Morbius 2: It’s Morbin’ Time? Olivia Wilde’s film which has been rumored for some time? Possibly. However it may be Venom 3, which we all know is presently being written—or, most curiously, the following Tom Holland Spider-Man. We all know the studio needs to make one other one, and if it does, a pleasant summer season launch matches in with the character’s historical past. In fact, there’s no official motion on such a venture however possibly one thing will get introduced at Comedian-Con this week? Or it could possibly be that Sony simply planted that flag within the hopes considered one of these tasks is able to go.
