The path will continue! Although the upcoming movie Spider-Man: No Way Home will conclude the trilogy of MCU’s web-slinger, and although director Jon Watts described it as Spider-Man: Endgame, No Way Home will not be the last Spider-Man movie that Sony and Disney’s Marvel Studios made together.
Sony’s Amy Pascal, who co-produced the Spider-Man movies set in the MCU with Kevin Feige confirmed that although No Way Home will conclude this trilogy, they’re planning to make another Spider-Man trilogy now. Full quote:
“This is not the last movie that we are going to make with Marvel – [this is not] the last Spider-Man movie. We are getting ready to make the next Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland and Marvel, it just isn’t part of… we’re thinking of this as three films, and now we’re going to go onto the next three. This is not the last of our MCU movies.”
“Marvel and Sony are going to keep going together as partners.”Amy Pascal for Fandango
Sony acquired the film rights to Spider-Man and other characters connected to him (Venom, Morbius, Kraven, etc.) in 1999. Since then, Sony released eight Spider-Man movies – Trilogy with Tobey Maguire, duology with Andrew Garfield, animated movie Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, and two Spider-Man movies set in the MCU. The third one – No Way Home – is on its way now, and Into The Spider-Verse sequel is also set to be released next October.

Although Disney managed to buy Fox and bring X-Men back to Marvel Studios, Sony still holds its ground. Spider-Man is part of MCU only thanks to the deal between Sony and Disney, and although that deal was temporarily broken before No Way Home was announced, it seems that the deal wasn’t remade only so that the trilogy can be concluded with No Way Home. Many fans thought that Disney and Sony will part their ways after No Way Home, but it seems that won’t be the case. We only hope there won’t be any more disagreements that might end that deal before time.
