MCU’s Spider-Man 3 Begins Filming in New York City
Following recent big casting reveals and growing fan speculations, Murphy’s Multiverse brings word that Sony Pictures’ executive marketing director in Brazil, Camila Pacheco, has reportedly confirmed that filming has indeed begun on the highly-anticipated third Spider-Man MCU film in New York City. This confirmation is also in-line with the surfacing fan-taken photo of a “No Parking” sign in Queens that featured the untitled project’s working title, “Serenity Now.”
During a recent appearance at ExpoCine’s virtual convention, Pacheco also revealed that the studio is committed in keeping the threequel’s current December 2021 release date while also teasing that we might potentially get our first look at the new Tom Holland-led Spider-Man film this coming December.
Tom Holland will return for the film as the titular wall-crawler alongside Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange, going up against Jamie Foxx’s Electro. Given the ending of Far From Home however, any number of his rogues gallery are also likely eager for a fight. The third installment to the MCU’s Spider-Man films will also feature the return of Zendaya (Euphoria, Dune) as MJ.
While most of the original series cast are set to return for the threequel, Foxx’s casting further blurs the lines across Sony’s three webslinging franchises, with the previous installment bringing back J.K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson from Sam Raimi’s trilogy and the studio’s Sony Universe of Marvel Characters led by Venom expected to crossover into the Marvel Cinematic Universe series soon.
Originally scheduled for a July 16, 2021 release, the untitled Spider-Man 3 was first pushed back to November 5 and will now bow on December 17, 2021.
