Sony Pictures has decided to push back the two untitled Spider-Man sequels for several months as Hollywood studios are adjusting their release schedules due to the coronavirus.

On Friday, Sony Pictures announced 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 will also be delayed six months from April 8, 2022, to October 7, 2022.

Tom Holland’s Spider-Man Far From Home grossed $1.13 billion across box offices worldwide, making it one of 2019’s most successful films. The franchise began with 2017’s Spider-Man Homecoming and the untitled film will be the third in the franchise.

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

Uncharted, Holland’s video-game adaption, will also move from October 8, 2021, to July 16, 2021.
